What is cost to paint four large windows on two floors and third floor dormer on front of colonial house?

The Windows and dormer are peeling after 12year old painting. House is 100 years old but substantially rehabbed.

You can find some prior discussions on painting costs in the Home >Painting link in Browse Projects, at lower left, but generally - VERY generally - about $1-1.50/SF is a common cost for house "field" painting assuming no significant scraping or priming is needed; and about $1-2/LF for trim - VERY rough numbers. Because you say both are peeling, might be as much as $0.50-1.50 range higher for scraping and priming depending on how work is involved - so you definitely need several bids, because some painters HATE prep work and charge high for it.
