Painters generally work in teams, particularly for exterior painting jobs, so this is why the hourly rate can sky-rocket as you are paying for as many as three or more painters.
The average exterior painting job costs $2,798 which is something to keep in mind if you’re thinking of purchasing or building a timber-clad house. To maintain its mint-condition, a timber house should ideally be repainted every 5 or so years.
Also keep in mind if you have a multi-level home that standard scaffolding may not be sufficient and your painter may need a cherry picker to reach the appropriate height – which will be an added expense.
