Exterior Painting of Apartment Building

Posted by Sam K. Lompoc, CA (August 6, 2013)

Power wash and Paint exterior of 2 apartment buildings each with 4 one bedroom units. Different color than existing and different color for the doors.

Also paint wrought iron hand rail. Little to no stucco damage and no wood rot.

Price should include all materials: Paint, tape for windows, paper, drop clothes, plastic sheeting.


  1. It sounds as if the prep work would be minimal. You could probably estimate the prep at .25 per square foot. In a two coat application, since you’re covering a different color, you might estimate between .45 and .65 per square foot.

    Hope this is of some help.

What would a fair price be?
