"From the initial estimate meeting to the final touch up was awesome. She was able to match our wall color and the trim color perfectly. She" was always professional, pleasant, and detailed. Any questions that we had she was there to answer. She was also, obviously very knowledgable about her craft and gave us excellent suggestions and advice. In addition, she is very talented at what she does and, we cannot say enough how beautiful she made our addition look. stayed within her original estimate and completed the job on time. We made a great decision hiring her and, will definitely be using her again.

Remodeling Tip: Should Painting or Flooring Come First?

Angie Hicks responds to a member who wants to know whether interior painting should come before or after the installation of hardwood flooring.

buckets of paint and sealers

A professional painter helps you determine how many coats of paint your interior project will need.

Handymen do a variety of work, so their prices vary by trade, project and materials.

Angie's Answers

That's very difficult to answer without seeing the house. As one poster said, the prep is the most important part. On newer homes that don't have a lot of peeling paint, the prep can be very minimal even as low as a couple or a few hundred dollars for the prep labor.

On a 100 year old home with 12 coats of peeling paint on it, then the prep costs can be very high and can easily exceed 50% of the job's labor cost.

A 2100 sq ft two story home could easily cost $1000 just for the labor to prep for the paint job. That number could climb too. Throw in lots of caullking  or window glazing, and you could be talking a couple or a few hundred dollars more for labor.

Painting that home with one coat of paint and a different color on the trim could run roughly $1000 or more just for labor. Add a second coat  and that could cost close to another $1000 for labor.

For paint, you may need 20 gallons of paint. You can pay from $30-$70 for a gallon of good quality exterior paint. The manufacturer of the paint should be specified in any painting contract. Otherwise, the contractor could bid at a Sherwin-Williams $60 per gallon paint and then paint the house with $35 Valspar and pocket the difference. $25 dollars per gallon times 20 gallons? That's a pretty penny too.

That was the long answer to your question. The short answer is $2000 to $4000 and up, depending upon the amount of prep, the number of coats, the amount of trim, and the paint used.

?

Remember, you not only have to remove the popcorn texture, but also redo the ceiling in some other texture.

Price will depend on several factors:

1) how much the contractor you choose hates removing popcorn or textured ceilings - some charge $1 or so/SF extra just because they hate it. There are even some who bid total drywall replacement cheaper than removing the popcorn, so you have to first find contractors who are happy to do that work, or your prices will be out of the realistic range

2) if the popcorn predates about 1990, then it could likely have asbestos in it, which doubles or triples the price, and in many cases uncapsulating it with a spray coating and then removing the drywall entirely is actually cheaper than all the protective measures necessary if it is scraped off. 

3) whether the popcorn is primarily gypsum and vermiculite (comes off REAL easy) or was the plaster of paris variety, which takes a fair amount of soaking to soften it enough to scrape off

4) what type of finish you are replacing it with - if a textured ceiling, slapcoat, knockdown finish or paneling, not real problem. If you want to go with a perfectly smooth ceiling (generally a bad idea as any variations in the drywall on a ceiling surface really shows up dramatically), then it will demand a lot of care in preparing the scraped surface, and a complete surface drywall compound skim coat to smooth out the scrapes and gouges from the removal process.

5) what underlying conditions are - if there is a lot of furniture to move around (should go to adjacent rooms) or cover and work around, high-quality rug or hardwood floor to super-protect or such, will drive cost up.

I have seen costs run from as low as $0.60/SF to $1.25/SF (for removal only). Generally, remove and recoat with a surface texture of some kind (anything but smooth) and paint will run you about $2.50-3.50/SF.

Now the bad news - if asbestos containing, can run from $5-10/SF. Many homeowners in that situation go the other legal route - have it encapsulated with an asbestos-rated sealant by an asbestos contractor, then paint it and leave it for the next homeowner to decide what to do about it. Some contractors encapsulate it and then put a 1/4" thick drywall layer over it - this usually looks like a disaster unless it has a VERY rough textured finish on it, because putting drywall sheet over a rough surface like popcorn invariably means a wavy surface commonly looks like a gently rolling ocean surface.

?
Hair spray is one of those things that is really bothersome.  We've run into this alot unfortunately.  And NOTHING we've found will actually clean it off.  The problem is that if you just paint over it, you still see shiny spots wherever the hairspray was.

Our companie's policy is to prime the area with any bonding primer.  This will seal the hairspray in and not let it affect the next coat of paint.  It would also be a good idea to lightly sand the area first.

Our recommendation for primer would be Zinsser's BIN Spray (red can) and can be bought at most paint stores or home improvement stores.  Other than that, any thing that specifically says "bonding" for a primer should be adequate enough. 
?
This is a good question.  However, the question makes the assumption that there is a paint that covers everything in 1 coat, which I don't believe is the case.  My recommendation is Benjamin Moore's Aura.  Now the fine print.  Aura will cover very well because it dries to approximately twice the thickness of other paints.  However, Aura says it will cover any color in never more than 2 coats, but there are exceptions to that as well, including some deep reds.  The main thing is the color change.  If the color you are using is within the same family of colors, you have a chance, we've also had pretty good success of grey covering over tan in 1 coat, but if you're making a major color change, don't expect any paint to cover perfectly in 1 coat.

Some other 1 coat coverage paints you could use would be Sherwin Williams Duration, and Behr Ultra Premium Plus.

Hope this helps! 
?
Without seeing the project I'm not sure exactly what is happening.  HOWEVER, I've never heard of someone "floating" over paint blisters - just logically that can't work.  If air or moisture are trapped (because that's what causes blisters) painting over them won't fix the initial problem.

I have a couple suggestions - My first would have been to contact the paint manufacturer - whether it's sherwin williams, benjamin moore, behr, etc. to see if they would send a rep out to give their recommendation.  We have done this before starting a project to get the best possible recommendation for work to be done and have found them to be very helpful in diagnosing what is currently going on and the best way to fix it.

If that doesn't work, I would call either the better business bureau or maybe the local paper if your contractor isn't willing to work through the problem with you.  Also, If your contractor warrantied the work I might re-read that to see what they cover if anything.  

My guess is that there will have to be some sort of dispute resolution process.

Hope this helps!

Excellent! They beat me to the work site both days, and stayed till done. Easy to work with. Suffered some self-inflicted communication challenges (bad setting on my phone) but hung on and managed to get in touch to keep the job moving. Friendly, hardworking crew. Would definitely use them again.

and his team at Rhino did an excellent job! They were prompt, professional and took great pride in their work. was extremely easy to work with and communicated the job excellently. He pointed out several issues from previous work on the house and offered to fix the issues free of charge. His team followed ...More up after several days to ensure that we were happy with the work. I would definitely recommend Rhino for any paint job - they are excellent.

Owner was communicative from the very start, called to confirm appointment, (texted that they were running a few minutes late even!), and kept me informed of each thing they were doing. The team of 3 were polite, took their shoes off before walking through the house, and worked continuously while they were here. One team member was sent out to get needed ...More supplies while the rest worked. Unsure of the price comparison, but they did a fine job.

I met with several days earlier so he could provide a quote for painting our basement, living room, play room and bedroom. Due to the harsh smell of the paint needed to complete basement and tight timeline I scaled down the job to only 2 rooms. The job started out good. had a young lady Santasha as his ...More worker that day. He did not stay. He originally informed it would be 2 women for the job, but no one else arrived. Santasha begin in the bedroom removing wall paper.
I received a call from my husband about 2.5hrs into the job that had arrived back and was pulling the plug on the job. was informing my husband (I could here him threw the phone) that the job was taking too long. He informed that he would be back on Monday. My husband informed that Monday would not work because we would be moving on Monday into the home. packed all of his painting gear and informed that the job had not been paid for yet. They argued over principal and that at end of completion the job would be paid as contracted.
continued with packing and was asked to leave. We asked Santasha if she was able to stay and do the job. She informed she could and would do so b/c contracted with us. informed my husband that of the 320.00 charge that he was paying Santasha 50.00. When Santasha agreed to stay immediately informed they would meet to discuss money. My husband interjected and again asked to continue leaving as he had already packed his stuff and no longer was the contractor.
Santasha stayed behind and used all her own equipment for the job. She did an awesome job and even called the next day to follow-up to ensure we were completely satisfied. sent me a text at 2:05pm apologizing for leaving and stating he was not trying to end the job. I never replied back to his text because I heard bailing on the job and arguing with my husband.
As my husband had already explained his actions was very unprofessional. The purpose of the quote is so the service provider can estimate his time and cost. failed to estimate this job accurately and made this our fault. I would never recommend for any work.
