"All Work was done to my satisfaction and very close to scheduled timeline. All the workers were clean, friendly, and professional. I could not ask for anything better." wants everything to be done perfectly and it was great to work with him. He was able to get the electricians,dry wall, and painter scheduled in a timely manner to get the job done right and quick.

" , the sales rep was extremely informative and took down several notes before calculating the estimate. He helped me outline some of my challenging," upcoming paint projects (stone fireplace, bathroom wallpaper strip/resurface, and painting hi-gloss wood panelling). I was able to schedule the painting a few short days later. I'll admit when showed up by himself, I was worried the job would take a while. But I was wrong. He finished ahead of schedule and the hand painted and sprayed rooms looked amazing. He was extremely friendly and at times, I often forgot he was there. The process/pricing were explained thoroughly and I am very happy with the results. They're "A+" rating is well deserved.

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!

Had an exterior wall damaged with dry rot and drywall damaged by old
AC. was prompt with the estimate that fully detailed the scope
of work, materials and costs. I was warned in advance that once the
wall was opened there could be more damage that would required
additional costs. (there was, no surprise ...More to me) I was also promised that the wall would be closed and
the AC installed on the first day. Workers were prompt, cheerful,
professional and very tidy. Area was spotless when they left. Second
day drywall was finished and facing replaced, sealed and painted. The exterior was also painted Again, prompt, professional and not a speck
of mess. Third day was interior painting.
The work was excellent and
actually a bit cheaper than my own guestimate. Very clean workspace
which is important with small children in the house.
Will hire again for any other work. Great crew.

Overall, it went well but the work was a little sloppy.
Lancaster is quite expensive and they usually do exceptional work, however, on this project I feel like the work was not up to prior standards.
The job was quite expensive, and I'm going to have to touch-up some items.
The project manager did come back and address several ...More of the issues, which I appreciate.
I still feel we paid too much for the job we received.

, owner, his project manager, and the whole crew always showed up on time, were professional, friendly and their quality of work is excellent. and kept in touch everyday and sometimes twice in one day depending on the goals for that day. Again, the quality ...More of work is excellent and their communication skills are the best I have ever encountered! They were very helpful in making decisions about the new design of the bathroom and always available to answer my questions. They will be completing phase 2 of construction to remove and replace all the dirt in my brick planter which runs the length of the front of my house and is about 3' high. There have been water and termite problems due to the planter that caused damage in my living room walls (the inside walls of the planter). will also rebuild planter walls on existing planter, repair back wall of planter, seal it and install new stucco above planter and all the materials that requires. I am having his company complete this work because of the excellent and timely completion of the previous jobs. I am sure the quality of the work on my planter will be as excellent as the above repairs already completed. I will write a further review upon the completion of phase 2.
I recommend without reservation.

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 ...More 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.

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 ...More 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.
