If you are thinking about painting your home, you are likely doing research on what it may cost to paint your home. When you hire a professional painting company, costs are primarily dictated by how much prep work is needed, the size of the space being painted, and finally, which company you hire. More established companies with experienced staff may come in at a higher quote.

You Can Trust Culver’s Painting!

We suggest that customers hire a company they are comfortable with and trust. Because, with any home improvement project, it’s important to work with a reputable company who is in business long-term and cares about doing a great job to earn your trust and possible future business or referrals. If you don’t feel that the workers coming into your home will treat it with as much respect and care as you would, you should look elsewhere until you find a company that you’re comfortable with.

About the Quote Process

It takes about 30-60 minutes to evaluate an interior home for an estimate. However, exterior jobs may require more time to evaluate all surfaces. At Culver’s Painting, you will always work with one of the owners; Josh Culver works with customers in the Brookfield, WI and surrounding areas. In the Madison, WI area owner Cory McCullick will provide your quote. After reviewing your property, we’ll provide you a written estimate that outlines our recommendation. This may include 1 or 2 coats of stain or paint, depending on your goals, how long you’re planning to live there, where the sun hits the home and other considerations.

Our quotes include labor and materials needed such as preparation materials: plastic, brushes, paint, etc. Depending on your home and other conditions such as the weather, a project could take as little as a day, or could take several weeks.

The average home painting project ranges $400 to $10,000, depending on various factors such as size, how many rooms are being painted, etc.. To give you a better idea about specific prices, we’ve broken down aspects of the project.

Interior Painting

Interior painting quotes rely on:

  • How many rooms are being painted
  • What condition are the walls and trim in

The more rooms and space to be painted, the higher the cost to paint your home. The condition of the surface areas affects the quote as well. Quality and customer satisfaction are our two most important goals. That’s why we only work with the finest materials so that we surpass your satisfaction with a quality job.

Average price ranges in the Madison, WI market for interior painting:

  • Bedrooms: $275 – $575/room
  • Hallways: $195 – $430
  • Stairwells:$250 – $560
  • Bathrooms: $275 – $480
  • Kitchens: $225 – $425
  • Closets: $145 – $400

If you wish to add any of the following services, these are the average prices to expect in addition to the base price:

  • $150 – $265 for wallpaper removal per room
  • $65 – $240 for lead-safe preparation per room
  • $50 – $100 per window sash or door
  • $75 – $200 for all trim/base/frames per room
  • $50 – $60 per hour for additional painting or preparation needed by painting contractor

Exterior Painting

The exterior of your home is the first thing you and others notice about it. Giving the exterior of your home a fresh new coat of paint can give it new life. When determining the cost to paint your home, we ask these three questions:

  • What is the size of your home?
  • What is the siding made of and what condition is it in?
  • Does your home have ornamental features?

Do you live in a one-story ranch, or a two-story home? Because this will impact the price of exterior painting. If the siding of your home is in great condition, it will only require minor prep work. Therefore, you may be looking at around $0 to $500 for things like power-washing or caulking here and there. However, if your home’s siding is peeling and needs a little more attention, you may be looking at upwards of $2,000 to $4,500 to properly prep. Though, this is typically only in the most extreme cases.

If you are looking to freshen up more than just the siding on your home, expect additional costs. For instance, if your home features window shutters, you may be looking at $175 to $350 to spray them with a different color. If your home features a porch that you would like to give a fresh coat of paint, expect an additional cost of $600 to $1,150 to cover all floors and surfaces.
