Cost of Fence and Deck Painting in Ottawa

When spring finally comes around, it’s time to think about putting that fence and deck back into good working order. But how? A deck, while a nice addition to any home, can also be expensive, thanks to the wood and other materials it uses. And, if left to the elements, a wood deck can fade quickly. An investment like this deserves a bit of TLC and what better way to do it than to paint your deck? Painting your fence, as well, not only looks better but helps to protect it from the elements.


How Much Does It Cost To Paint A Fence and Deck?

All fences or decks are not the same. The amounts of work requirements are different. Most of the fence painting jobs we de are either just painting and staining or some may need pressure washing. In most minor cases, we have to undergo a repair process which obviously makes some difference in total cost.

In our experience, most of the fence painting jobs we do range from $800 to $2500 while some can reach $5000 for the long perimeter. The average cost of painting a fence is $1,460. The height of the fence, length, etc. creates a difference in price. For example, a 6 ft. high privacy fence might cost more than a normal 4 ft to 5ft fence.

The average cost of painting a deck is $3000 and $3500 for staining. The total price is between $1100 to $6000.  Obviously, the actual cost may vary depending on several factors like size and condition. The price of painting and staining differs because the paints and stain materials are different and stains cost more compared to paints.


Cost of Fence and Deck Painting Per sq. Ft.

The cost of fence painting is $1.75 to $2 per linear. ft. for a 4′-5′  ft fence and 6′ tall wooden privacy fence is about $2.00 per foot, which includes labor and materials. When it comes to vinyl fencing or chain link fencing, expect to pay about $1.00 per linear foot (for labor) or $2-$3 per linear foot (including materials).

The average deck painting is $2 to $5 per square foot, however, this can go up to $7 per square foot if you want to use the highest quality paint or stain or in case your deck needs extra work like repairs. The more expensive paints are typically more durable and will last longer with less maintenance required. Also, if you have an existing stain or sealant on your deck, the cost will increase.


Costs Involved in Fence and Deck Painting


There is a choice of paint or stain on the fence or deck. Painting requires more care and upkeep than a less expensive option. Natural-looking Staining requires less care and requires less upkeep.

If you are painting your fence you may need primer which usually costs between $30 to $50 per gallon and paint itself would cost you up to $50 per gallon and that depends upon the quality. Stain is a different material, so the price is. It costs $30 to $50 per gallon.


Painters only need a paintbrush or roller to paint a fence. We might use a sprayer to give a better finish in less time. Rent can be as high as $150 a day for some painters who use their own sprayers. There is a lot of debris on some fences. The pressure washer that we rent costs $80 per day to clean.


The best result in fence painting can be achieved through preparation. Minor repairs, sanding, filling the cracks and holes, pressure washing, and other tasks are included in this. You can get this for between $50 and $200.


Factors That affect the Cost of Fence and Deck Painting

If you are looking for a more detailed estimate, then there are several factors that influence the price tag. These factors include:

Type of fence or deck: A composite or cedar deck will typically have higher costs than an aluminum or steel one because they require more maintenance due to their materials being more prone to decay.

Size: The larger your deck, the more expensive it will be due to increased material costs and labor costs for larger projects.

Materials Used: Wood decks require more material than other types, so this could add up quickly if you want a durable surface on your deck.

Repairs: If you have a damaged deck, you will have to repair it before painting it. This means you will have to remove the old deck and install a new one. The cost of this depends on the type of deck and its size.
