    cost of painting the outside of a detached house in the west Midlands

    Painters & Decorators

    What am I and my partner looking at paying to hire a professional to fully paint the outside of our house? We have a detached house and live in the west midlands. How much paint would we need considering that we live in an average sized detached house? How much might this cost? What do painters charge per hour in my area, generally?

    "To paint the outside of a detached house depends on what needs painting, if the house is rendered then the cost would be 3 to 4 thousand pounds"

    "A job like this I would charge about £1200 and that’s supplying the materials also but judging by some of the prices in other answers then I’m not charging enough haha"

    "It all depends on the surface of the house, the more rough it is then more paint and time it will take which means higher cost, exterior house painting starts from £850 excluding materials"

    "The quotation you are asking for has a very wide scope of price which depends on 1 surface type ie render , pebble dash, painted brick. 2 how many windows and size and porches . 3 what condition ie cracks flaking bare patches . 4 ease of access ie can get ladder or tower all around. So anybody who does quote must see the property it could be anything from £1200.00 up to £5000.00"
