If your home is covered with wood siding, you are undoubtedly used to the fact that it has to be painted on a regular basis in order to stay in tip-top condition. If, however, you have a different kind of cladding on your home — vinyl siding, aluminum siding, or fiber cement siding, perhaps — the thought of painting it may have never previously occurred to you.
Painting siding, however, is an excellent way to change the look of your North Carolina or South Carolina residence without blowing your budget or replacing your siding when you don’t really need to. If you have aluminum siding, you are in the right place to learn everything you need to know about giving it a high-quality paint job that will look amazing when it’s finished!
Breaking down the cost.
When you begin researching how much it typically costs to paint aluminum siding, you might find yourself somewhat surprised by the wide range of rates you encounter. Many online home renovation authorities indicate that homeowners may spend anywhere from about $3,000 to upwards of $8,000 to have aluminum siding professionally painted. This is an all-inclusive price, including prepping your residence, labor costs, and cleanup expenditures.
To help you better understand why there can be such a dramatic price difference from one aluminum siding painting project to the next, we’ve broken down how much a house can generally be painted at various price points. Hopefully, this will help you determine approximately how much money you should set aside for your upcoming project.
However, it is still important to remember that the overall cost of your exterior paint job will depend on where you live — rural areas, for instance, tend to be less expensive in general than Carolina urban centers like Raleigh, Charlotte, or Charleston.
$1,500 – If you are on an extremely tight budget, rest assured that it is possible to have your house painted for about $1,500, but it helps if you have a small home. At this price point, you would need to pay about $1.50 per square foot for a 1,000 square foot residence, which could be possible in rural regions or if you choose to paint your house yourself.
$3,000 – The low-end of average for painting aluminum siding is about $3,125. To get into this price range, you could paint a 2,500 square foot residence if you can secure both labor and materials at a slightly below-average rate.
$5,700 – This price is the national average for painting aluminum siding on a 2,500 square foot house. This assumes you hired a professional painting crew and paid an average rate for all necessary materials.
$8,000+ – Any price at or over $8,000 to have your home’s aluminum siding painted is a premium rate. This may mean you have an exceptionally large house or you selected extremely high-end products for your remodeling job.
