Average 5 Gallon Exterior Paint Coverage
On an average, 5 gallon exterior paint coverage is 1000 sq ft.
To achieve a proper exterior paint job, it’s recommended to apply two coats. Typically, a gallon of paint can cover around 200 square feet of exterior surface. If the surface is primed, you’ll need less paint, allowing coverage of over 400 square feet per gallon. Keep in mind that rough surfaces may reduce the coverage capacity.
