How Much Does It Cost To Paint The Exterior Of My House?

If you’re a first-time homebuyer or you’ve been thinking about painting the exterior of your Toronto home, but you’re not sure what to expect, this blog post is for you!

There are many reasons homeowners decide it’s time for a new paint job. Perhaps they feel it’s time for a fresh and modern look. Maybe they’re considering selling their home and want to get the best price for their property. They may even just see a lot of chipped paint and feel like it’s time to help protect their home from further damage.

Cost of Painting the Exterior of my House

If you’re unfamiliar with painting prices, you might not know what to expect when trying to find a professional painter that will do an excellent job for an even better price.

How much should exterior painting cost?

While it’s hard to give a solid estimate without having a professional come and see your home, there are some factors to consider that might change the price. The price may vary if you want to paint stucco, aluminum siding, vinyl siding or brick and how big the exterior of your home is.

If you want to paint the home yourself, you will need to spend money on supplies and paint and consider the time commitment it will take to paint your home. Especially if you’ve never painted your home’s exterior before and don’t have any hands-on experience. We definitely recommend leaving it to the professionals. Not only will you have a much better quality paint job, but you’ll save yourself the headache of trying to do it alone.

The best way to get an idea of what your exterior painting will cost is to provide a free quote. At Home Painters Toronto, our exterior painting starts at $1,495 + HST but depending on the size of your home, and it can cost up to $10,000 + HST.

We charge between $2.25 to $4 + HST per square foot. The average cost by home size is:

You’ll also want to consider the painting for windows and doors, which should range between:

HPT Exterior Painting Tips

Of course, the price of exterior painting for your Toronto home will largely depend on the size of your property. The bigger the home, the bigger the time requirements for our team, so there are some other places you might be able to save some money. Here are some tips to keep the price as low as possible or where to expect higher prices.

•Discuss any prep work with the team after they come to provide you with a free quote. If there are some things that you can take care of yourself before the job starts, like removing clutter or some cleaning, it can save you some money. 

•Consider how challenging your home might be to paint. If your property has many hard-to-reach spots, scaffolding, etc., you’ll be looking at a higher cost. If your roof’s shape is in a steep peak or you have some unique architecture, that will increase the difficulty for our team. 

•Suppose you’re not on a time constraint to get your home painted. In that case, you might be able to save some money by choosing a better time for the painting company, which could potentially get you a better price. If you’re trying to get your home painted during the busiest season or need a rush job, you’ll be looking at a premium price tag. 


•Keep it simple with your colours to save money. If you want more than five colours on the exterior of your Toronto home, the price will increase. Depending on the finish you want, the price may change as well. For example, a high gloss finish will cost more, and a colour that will require multiple coats will cost more as well. We use only the best quality paints, so keeping it below five colours and choosing an opaque colour will save you some cash. 

•We always encourage you to select a colour that will make you love coming home each day. However, suppose you’re selecting a lighter colour than the current paint colour on your home. In that case, we will need to use additional primer. 

•If you happen to be contacting us because you’re unhappy with the work provided by another company, which happens more often than you may think, this may make our job a bit more challenging. If the job provided before us was poorly done or we need to spend a lot of time repairing or making amendments, you could be looking at a higher cost. We always provide a satisfaction guarantee to our clients, so we’re not happy until you’re happy. We haven’t been in business for over 34 years for no reason!
