Brian E. says, "We had a bedroom that we needed painting as we had to move some of the kids around with a new little one coming into the house. Mike and his crew were professional and nothing but top notch from the very first time we met, until the project was finished. I am usually not one that writes reviews unless I have service that is above and beyond what I expected or is an absolutely horrible experience. Mike Johnson painting far exceeded my expectations and I would recommend them for anyone. Thank you, Mike Johnson for the A+, 5 star experience." Read more

Todd F. says, "Sergei and Mike! I've spent years dealing with independent contractors. These two guys were the best! They were reliable. They showed up when they said they were going to show up. They cleaned up after themselves. They were honest and were not bumping up the price unless we ask for something extra like the niche in the wall. And they did it and it was perfect! They came in on schedule. I cannot say enough good things about these guys. The bathroom looks absolutely beautiful and the tile job makes it. Everybody in our neighborhood is stopping by to see it and I am telling everybody about your company! Hope you get more business. You deserve it." Read more

Your Exterior Painting questions, answered

Answers to commonly asked questions from the experts on HomeGuide.

How much does exterior painting cost near me?

The average cost to paint the exterior of a house is $1.50 to $4 per square foot or $1,800 to $5,000, depending on the size, number of stories, material, condition, and accessibility.

Cost to hire an exterior house painter near me

  • Single story - 1,000 – 2,000 - $1,500 – $4,000
  • Two story - 1,500 – 2,500 - $3,000 – $6,000
  • Three story - 2,500 – 3,500 - $4,500 – $10,000

Does painting the house exterior add value?

Painting a home's exterior is a cost-effective way to increase value and boost home appeal. Exterior painting has a 55% return on investment (ROI), while interior painting has a 107% return on investment on average.

How often should you paint your house exterior?

A house exterior needs painting every five to ten years on average, depending on the location, climate, sun exposure, material, and condition. Wood siding needs repainting every 3 to 7 years, while fiber cement siding needs repainting every 10 to 15 years.

Signs a house exterior needs painting:

  • Paint is peeling, flaking, bubbling, cracking, faded, or chalky
  • There are exposed patches of wall
  • Stucco needs patching, or wood boards need replacing
  • The last paint job was longer than 10 years ago
  • You are selling the home and want to boost curb appeal

How long does it take to paint a house?

An average-size house takes three to four days to paint with a professional team of three painters. A large three-story or 5+ bedroom house takes four to six days to paint the exterior on average. This time estimate includes prepping the house, painting, and cleaning up.

When is the best time to paint a house exterior?

The best time to paint a house exterior is in spring, early summer, or fall when temperatures are 50°F to 85°F and moisture is low. Consult with a local painter in your area to select the optimal time to start your project.

Why paint a house exterior?

The top reasons to paint the exterior of a house are:

  • Increase home value and curb appeal
  • Protect from the elements and weather damage
  • Increase the lifespan of siding
  • Change the look or ambiance
  • Prevent exterior wood from rotting or insects
  • Repair damage

Do you tip exterior painting companies?

Painting companies do not expect a tip. However, if they go above and beyond or spend more time than expected, a cold drink, hot lunch, or $10 to $20 tip is appreciated. Giving the painter a positive review on HomeGuide, Yelp, or Google is better than a tip.

How to find local exterior painters?

Start by searching our list of exterior painters, then compare reviews and costs. Next:

  • Get at least three free estimates in-person to compare.
  • Ask for recommendations from family, friends, and neighbors.
  • Select companies that are licensed, bonded, and experienced.
  • Verify their insurance, worker’s compensation, and bond guarantees.
  • Read reviews and check out their previous work on HomeGuide and Google.
  • Ask if they are part of their local chamber of commerce or any trade associations such as the Painting Contractors Association (PCA).
  • Ask about their warranties and guarantees.
  • Get a detailed estimate, contract, and warranty in writing before the work begins.
  • Avoid making large payments upfront. Come up with a payment schedule for work completed.

After asking questions and verifying their credentials, hire the best exterior house painters in your area.

What questions to ask exterior house painters?

When hiring a house painter, ask them the following questions:

  • How long have you been a painting contractor?
  • How many similar projects have you painted?
  • Can I see your portfolio?
  • Can you provide me with a list of references?
  • Are you licensed, insured, and bonded?
  • Are you a member of the BBB, chamber of commerce, or any trade associations?
  • Are your painters' employees or subcontractors?
  • What qualities do you look for in subcontractors? Do they have professional training?
  • What quality of painting materials do you use?
  • What is your preparation process before painting?
  • How do you handle damages that happen on the job?
  • Who's the project manager?
  • What hours do you and your crew work?
  • How long will the project take?
  • What permits do I need, and will you obtain them?
  • How long is your warranty, and what does it cover?
  • How much is your cost estimate?
  • Can you provide me a written and signed contract with a breakdown of all costs?
  • What is the structure of the payment agreements?
  • Are financing options available?
  • What do I need to provide to get started?

Reviews for Minneapolis exterior painters

Recent success stories from people in the Minneapolis area.
Carolyn R.
Nick and his crew remodeled an existing bathroom and installed a new basement bathroom. We could not be happier with the results of these projects. The bathrooms look beautiful and one can see the quality workmanship in all the details. As is common with older there were some unforeseen problems and hiccups but Nick handled them patiently, honestly and fairly. Nick and his crew are very easy to work with and take great pains to be as tidy and unobtrusive as possible. We were so happy with their work that we asked them to install new flooring and paint rooms throughout our basement, and we are thrilled with the results. We will certainly call Nick for our future projects and have confidently recommended his company to friends and family.

I can’t say enough positive things about this contractor! Their work was top notch and they were extremely respectful of our home! We were so happy with the entire experience that we had them do more than we had originally planned on and hope to have them install floor tile for us this spring! HIGHLY RECOMMEND and would give them more than 5 stars if possible!
