If you’re looking for information about how much it costs to paint a house in Phoenix then you’re at the right place. We discuss various aspects of house painting costs but before we dive into the detail, let us explain what you need to be wary of…
HOW DO YOU PRICE A PAINTING JOB?
As a painter since 1993, having spoken with many homeowners over the years, it’s unfortunately, a pretty common practice for painters to cheat you out of a quality paint job by watering down their paint with a garden hose to save cost on materials. This is one of the biggest problems when hiring some painting contractors.
This could be because they underbid the job and then cut corners so they don’t lose money or it could be that they undercut the competition using the classic bait & switch, promising better materials that will actually be used on the job.
The result is not only a poor quality paint job that won’t provide protection or maintain a good appearance for very long, but the apparent ‘savings’ on the lower bid pricing just went out the window.
Can you have both quality and low pricing at the same time?
At Gilbert’s Painting, we believe in full transparency and one of the ways that we do this is by letting people know exactly how much materials cost. We do this by showing our customer’s the receipts so they can see for themselves that we ordered the paint that was agreed upon so they know exactly what they’re getting on their projects.
When it comes to painting, there’s a mathematical formula to how much paint to buy. The general rule of thumb is one gallon of paint covers approximately 400 square feet. We show people how many gallons of paint that we’re putting on their house and show them the receipts so they know that they’re not getting the bait and switch with watered down paint.
You’re reassured that you’re getting a quality paint job with high-end paint.
HOW MUCH DOES A PAINTER CHARGE PER HOUR?
Anyone can paint their house on their own, especially when the budget is tight. However, nothing beats the experience and quality results of an expert painter. When you hire an experienced painter, it’s more likely that you will get much better results.
Working with a professional does not mean that the homeowner’s ideas are tossed aside. In fact, our painters will work hand-in-hand with the owner in order to provide the best service and deliver high-quality results.
When it comes to pricing, professional painters usually has a fixed charge when doing exterior painting services. On the other hand, pricing for interior painting services usually has an hourly charge depending on several factors such as the location and size of the room. The hourly labor fee of painters typically costs around $50 for standard interior painting services.

HOW OFTEN SHOULD YOU PAINT YOUR HOUSE?
There is no definite answer to how many times you should paint your house. Every house is different and exposed to different elements. Some painting jobs last for a decade while some only last for five years tops. To know whether your house is in need of a repaint, check out these following common signs:
- Flaking or cracking paint
- Fading paint
- Chipping paint
There are also several factors that affect a painting job such as the location and the climate where the house is situated. Houses which are often exposed to harsher climate and weather, as we have here in Phoenix, will probably need to be painted more often than those which are not.
