    I am looking to get my house exterior painted. Just looking for typical prices as I really have no idea.

    I live in a 3 bed end terrace.

    All depends on access, height of property, paint to be used.

    So many factors that can't be seen blind.

    But if you really want an idea I'd say £10000

    No but my point is that a blind quote is meaningless. You need a few quotes to get an idea of costs within your local area.

    Walls? Soffits? Down pipes? Windows? Doors? Porches? Gates?

    The last exterior I painted last summer, the price was about 10K but that was a double fronted detached house with timber doors and windows on 3 sides. I under quoted by at least £1500.

    Photos would help.


    You say "just walls"- I could roll rendered walls 4 times faster than stab a brush at a large stone pebble dashed wall. Are there any cracks that need filling. Are there any plants (eg trees) in the way?

    I take your point about the type of surface. It's a typical end terrace with roughcast walls. No cracks, no obstructions. Gable end with no windows or doors.

    roughcast ? has it been painted before ? Probably the most difficult surface if not painted already
