You are now on the UK’s most popular exterior house painting and wall coatings website, packed with over 85 pages of case studies (see menu above), 400 pages of original DIY and home improvement articles and over 25 years of experience “on the tools”

When is the best time of year to have the house exterior painted?

First off though, what about cost? What is your budget?

As far as the cost to paint a house in the UK, each home we paint is different and as such, we always visit the house, survey it and work out a cost on the spot, based on its size and the amount of repair needed.

So enough about me, what about you?!

You are probably on this page after searching for exterior house painting services, a price for painting the house, estimates of cost for wall coatings, or something along those lines, so without further ado, let’s explain what to do to get your house painted.

Getting your house painted.

Firstly you need to set your budget so you know how much you have to spend on getting the place painted.

This is vital because if you are short of cash, it is not worth even thinking about getting it painted because a cheap job with cheap materials will last maximum one year and then you have pay someone to do it again, thus costing you twice as much.

Exterior house painters won’t work for next to nothing, and if you get a quote or estimate for house painting and it’s really low then something is amiss I assure you.

Don’t throw your money away on yearly painting!

How to waste money

Having your house painted by a professional means that it is going to cost you at least some money, and if you have a textured wall covering on the walls like pebbledash, it will actually cost you more to have it painted than brick or painting rendered houses.

Forgetting about “Keeping up appearances” for a second, and no I’ don’t mean that Hyacinth Bucket (boo-kay?) woman, I mean keeping the house at least looking nice so people don’t drive by and honk their car horns every day or point at you in the street and laugh.

It is important to keep the house in good order as it is by far the most valuable thing you own, so you need to look after it.

What sorts of houses do we paint?

We paint more or less any type of house in any condition and in any location across the UK, in fact we also have people in Spain if you have a holiday villa over there that needs painting.

We decorate terraced houses, detached and semi’s, commercial units, pubs, hotels, banks, churches, schools, basically anything that needs painting.


Back in the UK we have painted homes from Penzance to Inverness, from east Kent, to west wales.

Just because we are part of a large network of professional decorators, it does NOT mean we are expensive.

We can turn any house, such as this rather scruffy one……

…and then with a weeks work (in this case), involving all repairs needed such as rendering, crack repairs, pebble-dash replacement, and then apply a special sprayed coating system to the house, which makes the property look a bit like this amazing place…..

Best time of year for house painting?

This may surprise you but the summer is NOT the best time to have your house painted.

Why? Because in most cases, painters and wall coating companies are already fully booked, the good ones anyway, so you may not even be able to have it painted during summer.
