Gikas Painting Service in Montclair

Exterior painting of a house is one of the most important jobs that, if you are in an apartment building in Montclair, also generate a lot of discussions. If you are considering starting a renovation of the facade, this article is useful for you to understand how much it costs the exterior painting of a building  per square meter.

We will see the individual items that participate in the overall price. The price of the painting, of the chosen paint, and the cost of the monthly rental of the scaffolding per square meter.

When we talk about the costs of the exterior painting of a building we must pay attention to the additional items, as we will see in the course of the article. Other issues to consider are the tax deductions to redo the facade for a nice cost-saving.

Let’s start by seeing why the exterior painting of a building costs a lot. Last note, as an example we have taken a facade of a condominium building, but the assumptions are the same even in the case of the cost of renovating the facade of a villa or villa owned. To have a clear view of the prices, you must ask a construction company  like Gikas Painting Service for a quote.

Cost of scaffolding and facade renovation

Why are we talking about scaffolding? Because it is a very important cost item when having to redo a facade. If your building is very tall or also has façades that are difficult to reach, it is essential to understand the cost of the scaffolding for the façade or its alternatives. Generally, these costs are always included in a quote for facade renovation, but knowing them helps you to compare different quotes.

The rental of a scaffolding is expressed per month based on square meters. We can consider that the rental of a scaffolding to redo the facade or other construction work for a building cost from € 7 to € 15 per square meter in the first month, and then from € 1 to € 3 per square meter for the following months. The price of the scaffolding always includes transport, assembly, and disassembly. From this, you can understand why it costs so much the first month and after the others.

Cost of renovation of the facade of a building

Returning to the cost for the renovation of a facade of a building, a house, condominium, or even a villa, the average cost is between € 60 – € 80 per square meter. In many cases, it is also advisable to redo the thermal coat of the building. In this case, the price per square meter to redo the facade with thermal insulation is between € 80 – € 100 per square meter. With the thermal coat, you can take advantage of the 75% Ecobonus deduction to redo the facade.

The prices that we have displayed to redo an external facade include scaffolding, the restoration of the external plaster, the cementitious smoothing with mesh, the coating, the painting of the external parts of the balconies and if required, the thermal coat.

When you talk to a company, ask if you need to redo the external plinth of the facade as well. The plinth is the lower part of the facade and is used both to cover inaccurate cuts in the external floor and to prevent infiltration into the facade. Over time, even the external plinth of the facade can be damaged.

Cost of painting the external facade of the building

Even the prices for painting the exterior facade of the house can vary the overall cost. The facade of your building can be painted with quartz paints, lime paints for exteriors, silicates, siloxanes, etc.

The quartz paint is one of the most economic swings from € 6 to € 10 per sq m, while the silicate and siloxane are more expensive going from € 8 to € 13 per sq m.

Other expenses to consider in a quote

In addition to the labor costs, you have to consider the costs for safety about 10%, the cost of the construction manager about 4%, the director of safety 2%, the building administrator 1% -2%.
