2024 House Painting Costs in New Jersey: Pricing Factors to Consider When Budgeting Your Next Exterior or Interior Paint Job

If you’re like most New Jersey homeowners planning for a exterior house painting or interior room paint refresh project this year, establishing a realistic painting budget tops your priority list. But accurately calculating the cost to paint a house exterior or interior spaces can be tricky with so many pricing variables in play.

As professional residential painters trusted by New Jersey homeowners for over 20 years and counting, we want to provide helpful insights into the key factors that influence overall house painting costs so you can set practical budgets.

House Size and Layout

Logical enough, the overall square footage and architectural layout of your home or rooms getting painted plays a major role in painting price. Those with sprawling multi-story exteriors, high ceilings, atriums, and intricate trim detail take more time and materials to prep and paint correctly. Staging, equipment rental fees and labor hours also pile up faster on larger painting projects, driving costs higher.

As a rule of thumb, typical single story homes around 2,000 to 3,000 sq.ft. with simple trim detail fall within $2,000 to $3,500 for exterior house painting. Interior painting for standard 10’x12’ bedrooms often runs $400 to $900 per room. Vaulted great rooms or 20’ high exterior faces easily double or triple those baseline prices.

Surface Material & Condition

The types of materials making up your home’s siding, trims, walls and ceilings also cause painting price fluctuations because different materials require varying types of prep and paints. For instance, painting cost per square foot averages around $1 for drywall or plaster walls and ceilings in good shape but touches $3 to $4 per sq.ft. for cinder block construction requiring heavy prep and primer before painting. Cement board siding takes specialty bonding primers while old wood clapboard siding with peeling lead paint must getremoved before new boards are installed and painted. Identifying all your home’s surface materials and conditions add or subtract from paint job expenses.

Paint Selection

The specific brand and quality grade of primers and paints specified also moves the cost meter, with leading manufacturers like Benjamin Moore and Sherwin Williams garnering top dollar for their super premium lines. While their quality paints ensure longer lasting protection and vibrancy exceeding discount brands, you pay 20% to 30% higher price tags for the added performance guarantees. Going with lesser grade economy paints saves upfront but often requires follow up maintenance painting sooner.

Choose the highest paint grades within budget for longest return on investment. Also factor in expenses for any specialty finishing products like textured coatings, faux paint techniques, or anti-rust enamels when tallying complete painting costs for budgeting purposes.

Accessibility Factors

For exterior house painting projectso, accessibility challenges posed by a home’s architecture influences pricing as well. Multi-level roofs with steep pitches, towers, and arches difficult to reach with ladders ratchet up staging equipment expenses, crew hours and prep work for safety. Difficult access also slows painting progress compared to single story straightforward designs.

Interior accessibility issues like painting around intricate built-in cabinetry, shelving systems or furniture left in place makes cutting in edges extraordinarily tedious and time consuming, escalating per room painting prices substantially.
