The Real Cost of Painting
Do You Know the True Cost of Painting Your Home?
Keeping your home looking nice is a challenge in the humid, moist Gulf Coast climate. But do you realize how expensive it can be to paint a home every few years? Real estate and construction experts say that your home’s exterior should be painted at least every 7 years, and more frequently in a damp climate.
Look how the cost of painting can add up over time when you rely on a typical exterior painting company (assuming a modest 3% inflation rate):
|# of Years||3-Bedroom Home||4-Bedrooms Home||4-Bedrooms Home w/Dec|
|Now||$9,800 – $12,600||$11,500 – $14,800||$12,500 – $15,800|
|7||$12,000 – $15,050||$13,730 – $17,675||$14,925 – $18,865|
|14||$14,325 – $17,970||$16,395 – $21,100||$17,825 – $22,525|
|21||$17,100 – $21,450||$19,575 – $25,195||$21,285 – $26,895|
|Total||$53,225 – $67,070||$61,200 – $78,770||$66,535 – $84,085|
Now add in the “hidden costs” of time, disruption and mess and the cycle of painting your home becomes a huge burden. But what if you could coat your home once and then stop worrying about it forever? There’s no need to spend more than $50,000 just to keep your home’s exterior looking good when an excellent alternative like TEX-COTE® from Mid South Coatings is available.
