    How much to Paint the outside of a House?

    Painters & Decorators

    Could you tell me roughly how much it would cost to repair the exterior of a small house. We are buying a period Georgian cottage but its semi detached so only three exterior walls to be painted. Many Thanks

    "The costs for 3 walls only is depending on how bad the walls are. If they need to be rendered, the cost for each wall he could go to £2000 each or less if just for filling walls and paint then is £1000 each if you have wood windows he will be an extra cost of £250 per window"

    "Hi Gary.
    All depends on access really. Whether its ladder work/scaffold.
    As a guide......if masonary only, and minor hairline cracks, no drastic colour change, around the £1200-1400 sounds about right.
    Hope that helps.
    Kind regards

    "If it can be done from a ladder it will be cheaper as a scaffold costs more so if a ladder is ok then £1000 should do it"

    "Shouldn’t cost too much (£400) but would need to set aside £1000 for repairs just in case, It would all depend on the area you live to as rates are different everywhere !"

    depending on the walls its normally an undercoat and then a finishing coat
    cost would be around £1000
