"AC met or exceeded all our expectations in this almost month long process. All of the AC team was professional, courteous and extremely skilled in their trade." They kept us informed and updated along the way, there was no confusion in the schedule and they kept the house and the projects clean. During the project we felt so secure with AC and their work that we left for vacation for a week toward the completion of the project and all was exactly was we expected when we got back home. The overall cost was on the higher end but you get what you pay for and we could not be more pleased. We highly recommend
and when another project is needed at our house we will be calling
at AC.

"
did an awesome job. He worked with us. We were concern with visitors arriving it would not be done in time.
worked" with our schedule.
was honest about the timeframe to complete this small project.
shared all concerns on the work, his staff worked quickly and efficiently. He checked the water leakage, and window, and found the problem. There was no internal water damage. The tile on the bathroom wall was approximately six years old, and we could not find the same tile.
offered a solution, and we found a tile similar to the tile on the bathroom wall. Now, you cannot tell the difference. The stucco crew were very quick, and the area was cleaned and painted.

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.

Interior Painting

Professional decorators say painting is one of the easiest and least expensive ways to dramatically change the look of a room. It's also one of the more accessible do-it-yourself projects for the homeowner, though a professional interior painting company will likely do a better and more long-lasting job.

You may prefer the lived-in look, but a hole in the wall makes your home look a little too lived in. A pro tells how to repair a hole yourself and save money.

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.

?
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!

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.

?
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!

came early morning to accommodate my needing the work done asap. He did a beautiful job cutting the counter top and did it fairly quickly. He brought everything necessary to get the job done and cleaned up everything before he left. He is very professional and he seems like a good and honest person. I would definitely refer him and have hired him/his company to do some interior painting for me as well.

House was filthy and had to cleaned prior to painting. Both bathrooms had to be gutted and have new fixtures. Doors had to be replaced. and all flooring had to be removed and replaced. Many small handyman jobs were done and done well.
As the work went along I kept adding things and he was so patient and accomodating. He coordinated well with other tradesmen and suppliers. There were mold and asbestos issues. Whatever needs to be done he does it pleasantly.
He is very detail oriented and makes sure that all jobs are done correctly. He is very good at communication and makes sure that you know what he is going to be doing tomorrow and the next day, etc. If you are telling him things you want done he is making a list.
I would hire him again in a heartbeat!

These guys are fabulous. They've worked with us on several projects, and we've been completely happy with the results. In this project, we removed the dated fluorescent box light from our kitchen and replaced it with recessed lighting. This of course left a hole and outline in the middle of the ceiling to deal with. After Lancaster's professional work, the kitchen is beautiful, and you'd never suspect that it had a facelift. On to our next project!

completed the demo in one day & had the front of the house including the siding done in the first week. I don't know that I have ever heard of construction going as smoothly as ours did. What

was amazing. They came out to give us an estimate very quickly and were in the house painting within the week.
The guys that came went above and beyond to ensure the rooms looked great. All of our floors and furniture were protected. The house was in pristine condition when they left.
While they were painting, they discovered that we needed to scrape and repaint our ceiling in the guest bathroom and immediately provided an estimate and asked for approval to complete the work.
After they were done, they had us inspect the work and promptly touched up all areas we found. They were the most professional and polite people I've worked with in a LONG time. I would HIGHLY recommend using
