And don’t think you are stuck with the same colour or colour family. When it comes to house painting, your imagination is the limit. Swap rambunctious red for cool blue or a grand-looking green. Rather go with a classic? You can’t go wrong with crisp white – inside or out.

Is the time right to paint your home?

A perfectly good reason to start with is that you’re simply tired of the existing colour. After all, there’s nothing wrong with wanting a refresh or making a home your own by switching up the curb appeal.

Looking for a little inspo? Here are the TOP interior painting colour trends you need to know to stay stylish this year.

Functionally speaking, there are some very specific signs that it’s time for a paint job. While paint can (or at least should) look great, it works to help protect your home against the elements. When that coating starts to fail, you can end up with damage from weather or pests that can lead to water entry or substructure rot.

Here are signs to watch for on your exterior house paint:

  • Cracking or peeling layers
  • Stains, fading, or discolouring
  • Mould or mildew growth
  • Bubbling surfaces
  • Gaps in caulking

One last idea here: if you’re planning to sell your house, a fresh coat of paint can work wonders. Not only will it look great to potential buyers, but it can actually increase the value of your home when you go to list it.

P.S If you want to increase the value of your home, make sure you paint your fence too. We wrote the definitive guide on fence painting - and you can read that fence painting guide right here!

How long does the house painting take in Penrith?

Well, how large is your house?

The time it takes for house painting in Penrith is mostly a factor of how much surface area needs to be redone.

Of course, the process is more than applying a coat of paint. The team will need to take the time to clean and prepare the surface. If you’re switching up the colour completely, you might need more than one coating, which can add to the overall project while also allowing for time to dry between coats.

Oh, and Mother Nature needs to cooperate, too. Rainy days or high winds that kick up dust or debris will put off any paint job until conditions are more favorable. This is true even for an interior paint job, since proper temperatures and ventilation are needed.

All things considered, it typically takes 3-4 days to paint a home exterior and 1-2 days to do the inside.

Keep these 5 things in mind when planning your refresh

  1. What lies beneath could cause delays. If the team finds rotten material after removing the existing paint, you would need to replace trim or components before the paint job can move forward.
  2. Paint kills plants. While this can seem silly, make sure your painter takes measures to cover or protect your plantings. And while you’re at it, move your outdoor furniture out of the way, too.
  3. Ask for extra. Paint, that is. When the job is done, make sure the contractor leaves behind at least one can of paint so you can do small touch ups as the need arises.
  4. Swatch and Sample. Take the time to try out a few different colours on the actual exterior material. What looks great on a card or on the can could look quite different once it’s all over your house in the natural light of day.
  5. Avoid the heat. The best temperatures for painting are 10-27°C. Go hotter or colder, and the paint will not adhere or cure correctly, leaving you with a mess to redo later.

How much does house painting in Penrith cost?

Ready to put your budget together? Just like the time to complete the job, pricing comes down to the size of the home, first and foremost.

To give you an estimate, a professional painter will calculate how many square metres of surface need to be painted. Most charge between $12 to $60 per m2 including any prep work.

If you are having trim or facia refreshed or using contrasting colours, the rates could increase to cover that detail work.

The table below offers a bit more detail on the average pricing you can expect to encounter depending on your exterior painting surface type.

Exterior Painting Service Average Cost per m2
Timber / Weatherboard $12 to $60
Brickwork $15 to $45
Cladding $15 to $22
Vinyl $36 to $44
Stucco $13 to $25
Interior Drywall $20 to $30

You’ll want to get a quote from a professional painting service for your specific home. However, the average cost to paint a two-storey, three-bedroom home falls between $5,000 to $8,000. A larger four-bedroom home will cost closer to $10,000 depending on the exterior material. For an interior, the costs are much less, roughly $2,500 to $3,000 for an entire home.

Does painting include warranties?

Most paint comes with a limited lifetime guarantee for performance. Why limited? Because it comes down to the quality of the actual paint job. That’s why you should only choose a professional painter that is highly experienced with a proven track record.

Your paint warranty will usually cover the integrity of the application. When it comes to exterior applications, this is important for protection against blistering, peeling, or weather if the surface has been correctly prepared and primed. This makes sure that the paint has the chance to adhere.

As you look for the right painter for your job, you should also look for one that backs their own work. Not many painters will offer a workmanship warranty, choosing instead to hide behind the idea that paint will fade or weather because of, well, the weather. Don’t be afraid to ask a provider which paint brands they use and what customer satisfaction offers they include with their work.
