At Phillips, we begin with a thorough inspection because we know this:

“By doing a handful of critical things better, we’ll… GREATLY extend the lifetime of your exterior paint job.

Other companies might give you a vague baseline quote to get you to sign the dotted line… then hit you with loads of additional required repairs later. Or, worse yet, cover up issues like rotten wood with subpar materials and temporary bandaids.

Their shortsightedness may result in runaway unbudgeted expenses or a paint job that must be redone at an even greater expense down the road. With Phillips, this kind of nonsense is NOT going to happen.

Marnie M.

Phillips Home Improvements have been wonderful to work with. I used their services on two of my rental homes, and the homes looked brand new when work was completed. I’d definitely recommend them, and I’ll use them again in the future.

Neta D.

Initial contact with Phillips was key in the decision. We were able to cover every step of the process prior to any commitment. The supervisor walk-through on Day One was helpful in seeing what needed to be done. The crew was pleasant and efficient and did an excellent job with repairing, painting, and the final cleanup. Work was scheduled and completed on time. Definitely recommend Phillips.

Mariemma C.

The Phillips Home Improvements team, from the initial visit to the crew that did all the work, were fantastic! All members were professional and courteous. We had the exterior of our home painted and some carpentry work as well. The finished work looks great! We will be calling on them again in the near future.

Mary R.

Phillips Home Improvements did an outstanding paint and repair job in our home. It included sheetrock, wallpaper removal, texturing, and painting. The preparation, workmanship, and final result were high quality. Our project manager responded quickly to all our questions and requests. All the painters worked professionally and long hours to complete the project on time. We will definitely use Phillips for future projects.

Kenneth M.

Had Phillips out to bid our house for exterior paint and some wood rot/carpentry. They call you every week and let you know where you’re scheduled. They stuck to their schedule and showed up on time. They were amazingly fast (repairs and paint), completing the job in 2 days with a couple of hours for touch-ups. The house looks great, they cleaned up after themselves and had a great attitude. They were great to work with, and I will use them again for the inside of the house. Thank you for doing a great job!

Exterior Painting FAQs

Basic Questions & Answers You Might Be Interested In

Back To Table Of Contents

Q: How Much Does It Cost To Paint The Exterior Of A House In DFW?

The cost to paint a home’s exterior varies depending on factors like the size of the house, the type of paint and finishes used, the amount of prep work needed, and location. It can cost as little as a few thousand dollars or as much as tens of thousands. The best thing to do is to contact us for a free evaluation of your needs and wants along with a no-obligation, free proposal.

Q: How Often Should I Paint The Exterior Of My House?

The frequency at which you should paint the exterior of your house can vary depending on factors such as the type of siding, climate, and exposure to sunlight.

Generally, exterior paint tends to wear more quickly and must be repainted every 5 to 10 years. In areas with intense sunlight, stucco, vinyl, or aluminum siding should be painted about every 5 years, while wood siding may need to be painted every 3 to 7 years. In regions with less intense sunlight, paint should last four to 10 years on wood and 20 years on vinyl or aluminum siding.

Addressing exterior painting issues sooner rather than later is crucial to maintaining the beauty and value of your home. Postponing the necessary maintenance can lead to more extensive and costly repairs. Investing in high-quality paint and hiring a trustworthy company like Phillips with a great BBB rating is important to ensure your money is well spent and provides lasting value.

Q: What Type Of Paint Should I Use For My Home’s Exterior?

The type of paint you should use for the exterior of your Dallas-Fort Worth home depends on the surface you’re covering. Most water-based exterior paints can be used on wood and hardboard siding and trim, as well as vinyl and aluminum siding and most masonry. For stucco prone to cracking, it’s recommended to use elastomeric paint.

Oil-based paint works well for exterior doors and metal railings, as it creates a durable, strong finish that holds up against the elements. On the other hand, latex (water-based) paint dries quickly and cleans up more easily than oil-based paint, requiring only soap and water.

Q: Should I Pressure Wash My House Before Painting?

Yes, pressure washing your house before painting is recommended. The pressure washer removes dirt, grime, and loose paint, which helps new paint adhere better and last longer. Pressure washing can also reveal underlying damage to be addressed before painting.

Q: Do I Need To Scrape Off The Old Paint Before Painting?

We recommend removing all loose, peeling, or chipping paint before painting a surface to ensure proper adhesion of the new paint. However, it may not always be necessary to completely strip all layers of old paint before repainting. If the old paint is in good condition with no signs of peeling or cracking, it may be possible to paint over it after proper cleaning and preparation.

However, if there are signs of damage or deterioration, it’s best to remove old paint to prevent further damage to the surface underneath. In North Texas, where weather can be harsh, and homes are often built with materials like brick, wood, or stucco, it’s essential to address paint issues ASAP to protect the exterior from damage caused by moisture, UV rays, and wind.

Q: How Long Does It Take To Paint My Home’s Exterior?

The amount of time it takes to paint the exterior of a house depends on several factors, including the size of the house, the type of paint used, the complexity of the design, and the weather conditions. Our average exterior painting project in the DFW area takes 2 to 3 days.

Q: Can I Paint My House If It’s Raining Or Too Hot Outside?

Painting a house while it’s raining or during extreme heat is not recommended. Rain can cause the painted surface to become slippery, preventing the paint from adhering properly, and extreme heat can cause the paint to dry too quickly, leading to cosmetic and durability problems. Many modern paints are designed to dry quickly and can be rained on in as little as a few hours.

Q: How Do I Choose A Color Scheme For The Exterior Of My House?

  • Get Inspired: Look at the natural environment around your house – trees, plants, shrubs, flowers, water, etc. and draw inspiration from all the colors. You’d be surprised what you miss or what disappears into the background of what you “see” every day.
  • Architectural Style: Different architectural styles work best with specific color schemes. Consider your home’s overall style, such as victorian or modern or rustic, and choose colors that complement it. It’ll seem like it was always that way when we’re done.
  • The Neighborhood: You may want to stand out, but you may not want to stick out like a sore thumb. Be sure to keep in mind the color schemes of your neighbor’s homes and choose a complementary color scheme. Or not. It’s your call!
  • Your Roof’s Color: Your roof is a significant factor to consider when choosing an exterior color scheme. Choose colors that work well with the roof’s color. As always, you can ask us for help. We’re professional roofers as well.
  • Testing Color Schemes: Most paint manufacturers have apps and online tools that let you visualize how a particular color scheme will look on your house before you paint it. Use these tools to choose a color scheme you’ll enjoy seeing daily.

If you’re changing colors, Phillips always recommends sampling the actual paint colors on two or three locations on your home before committing to it.

Q: Should I Hire A Professional To Paint The Exterior Of My House?

It’s always recommended to hire a professional painting company, like Phillips, to ensure the job is done correctly, with the right prep and materials, and to provide more value over time by preventing costly future repairs. So, don’t take shortcuts with painting your home’s exterior – hire an expert to ensure a long-lasting finish.

Ultimately, the decision to hire a professional will depend on your individual needs and circumstances. That said, here are a few considerations:

  • Your Expertise: If you’ve never painted the exterior of a house before or have limited experience, it may be best to hire a professional. We have thousands of projects under our belts and decades of experience in focusing on the details you may not know about.
  • Time & Effort: Painting the exterior of a house is a time-consuming and physically demanding task. Hiring a professional may be the best option if you have a busy schedule or physical limitations. We’ve got the teams, tools, materials, and systems.
  • Safety: Painting a home’s exterior often involves working at heights and using heavy equipment. If you’re uncomfortable, hiring a professional with the proper equipment and training may be safer. We take EVERY safety measure to protect everyone involved.
  • Quality Of Work: Professional painters have the experience and tools to produce high-quality work. Hiring a professional may be best if you want a clean and polished finish. Plus, you also get coverage, warranties, and peace of mind.

Q: Any Special Precautions When Painting A Brick House Exterior?

  1. Clean The Surface: Clean the bricks thoroughly with a power washer or stiff-bristled brush and TSP before painting. This will help the paint adhere better to the surface.
  2. Repair Damaged Areas: Check for any cracks or holes in the mortar or bricks and repair them with suitable filler. Don’t look over these, but address them.
  3. Use The Right Type Of Paint: For brick exteriors, it’s important to use breathable, water-resistant paint that’s been specially designed for masonry surfaces.
  4. Consider Hiring A Professional: Painting a brick house requires special skills and tools. It may be best to hire a professional to ensure the job is done correctly and safely.
  5. Protect Surrounding Areas: Cover plants, windows, and surfaces that could be damaged by paint splatters/drips. At Phillips, we take extra care here for a spotless finish.
  6. Allow Sufficient Drying Time: Make sure to allow ample time for the paint to dry before exposing it to moisture or inclement weather. You don’t want to ruin all that hard work!

FAQs About Painting A Stucco Home

Q: What’s The Best Type Of Paint For A Stucco Home?

Quality is crucial when it comes to painting stucco, and choosing the right paint can alleviate the stress of worrying about durability. We recommend high-quality acrylic latex paint. This type of paint adheres well to stucco, resists fading from the sun, and withstands the Texas weather, providing long-lasting protection and vibrancy for your home.

Q: How Often Should I Paint My Stucco Home?

It’s generally recommended to repaint your stucco home every 5 to 10 years, depending on the climate and exposure to the elements. However, due to our local weather conditions in Texas, we suggest a professional inspection every 5 years. Regular inspections can prevent larger issues down the road, saving you from stress and unexpected costs.

Q: How Does Painting A Stucco Home Increase Its Value?

A freshly painted stucco home not only looks more attractive but also offers increased protection against the elements. High-quality paint can help prevent damage from sun exposure and harsh weather conditions, thereby preserving the structure and integrity of your home. This can contribute to the property’s value over time.

Q: Can Painting Help With The Repair Of Minor Stucco Cracks?

Absolutely, painting is part of the repair process. Small cracks in stucco can be filled, and then the entire surface can be painted for a uniform, refreshed look. However, we always recommend addressing these issues promptly and professionally to ensure that a minor issue doesn’t become a more serious, costly repair.
