How much to paint the exterior and interior of my house in 2021?

Painting is one of the least expensive ways to update your home. Here in Texas, most homes are made of brick leaving only the soffit and fascia to paint unless of course you decide you want to partake in that trend of brick painting. Regarding interior, there is a lot more going on with doors, trim, ceilings, and walls. Expect to pay more for the interior painting than exterior on average.

Exterior painting of fascia and soffit only is the least expensive form of painting the outside. You can expect to pay around $1.75-$2.25 per sq. ft. of the size od your home. For example, if your home is single story and 1,200 sq. ft., expect to pay between $2,100-$2,700 depending on if some repairs are needed. These costs are including material and labor to pressure wash, caulk, do a few repairs, and paint. 

Exterior paint costs including full home in case your home is stucco or siding will be more expensive. These costs will run you around $2.50-$2.75 per sq. ft. for just preparation and painting including labor and materials. As an example, a full siding home at 1,200 sq. ft. would run you around $3,000-$3,300 total cost. Exterior brick painting has the added cost in brick primer application and material. Expect to pay around $2.75-$3.00 per sq. ft. for exterior brick and trim painting. 

Interior painting costs depend heavily on home occupancy, size, number of colors, and quality of paint. If a home is occupied, expect to pay around $3.25-$3.75 per sq. ft. to move things around, cover, prep, and paint. This includes labor and material. If the home is empty expect to pay around $3.00-$3.50 for full interior paint.
