"We had rented our house out for the last 2 years. Due to the wear and tear of our renters the interior of the home was in desperate need of help. I looked on Angie's" list to try and find someone who would be able to do everything that we wanted rather than having to contract out with multiple people. I read the great reviews others had left for
and
and decided to give them a call.
was quick to respond to my initial call and was prompt when meeting us to tour the home to determine what exactly we were looking to do. He provided us with a copy of his license and insurance right away and took measurements. Within 1 day I had a comprehensive and thorough quote which we believed was extremely reasonable for all the work and timeframe we were wanting the work done in. On the first day of work,
's crew was here on time (early even) and ready to get to work.
and
were especially great with all of the painting and everything else that they did. They were so nice, approachable and patient with us throughout the entire job. We are so very happy with how everything turned out and the great job that
and
did. We have recommended
to several of our friends and co-workers and are even having them come back to do additional work for us. Thank you
and
!!!

"I contacted
and
Z. was a professional all through the process. He was on time and from start to finish and
" was on the ball every step of the way. Professional. Pleasant and Very Helpful. I bought a 1925 Bungalow Home that was in Foreclosure and I called
Z to see if he could help me. Since I didn't own the home, at that time,he charged me a consulting fee for the estimate of $350 dollars that was totally refunded since I move forward with the project.
is awesome. The estimate came in quickly and it covered the entire home and
helped with the design and color selections. He was spot on. He captured my vision and then some.
has some wonderful folks working hard each and every day to ensure a quality finished project. Ed,
's Operation Manager knows how to get it done. He took charge of
's vision and detailed the work to his crew.

and
did a fabulous job but what is most impressive is the fact these guys show up every day on time, clean up after themselves and define the word polite. They exceeded my expectations at every step of the process. These guys can do it all and they do it very well. They are now my "Go To Guys" for all the remodeling needs I have moving forward. Thanks
and check out the before and after at the
web site, www.atiservicesoftampa.com My friends can't believe it's the same home. It's like
opening the door after she lands in

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.

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!

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!

Yes - absolutely!  Refinishing is THE VERY BEST way to go to avoid tearing out a perfectly good bathtub that just LOOKS bad after years of use.  Go to the link below for some before and after refinishing pictures of acrylic tubs.

Did not paint some areas of adjoining trim. Had them return to paint the missed spots and found more mistakes after they left. Finally did the touch up myself. Got tired of arranging my schedule around theirs.

This was a very pleasant experience overall.
Tampa Interior Painters Provider Name Locked
was quick to respond when first contacted and the estimate was quick and reasonable. His painters always conducted themselves in a very respectful and professional manner. They were very careful with any furniture that had to be moved both inside and out. They cleaned up after themselves on a daily basis. They took a lot of time prepping the surfaces which resulted in a superior job. They were punctual.
Because I started the job during the holiday season, they had to work around Thanksgiving and Christmas and the weather.
Do be aware that once you get out of their rotation you have to be flexible when trying to get them back to finish. This is because they are very busy. They are still working to finish my job and it is January (not their fault). So if you can, try not to do the work during a holiday season so work does not have to be interrupted.

Zoinierowski did an honest and knowledgeable presentation of selling the job. His positive and well-documented approach made us comfortatlbe that he would assure that all woudl go well. Ed, the supervisor of our four-day project was so positive with us and also wonderful with the two workers he was supervising. Professionalism reigned among all workers.

came out for an estimate, was on time and even brought a carpenter with him. He was very nice and said he'd email me a quote that day. The next day I emailed asking again for the quote, and he replied saying he'd send it that day. I didn't receive it so I emailed him a THIRD time. He again replied saying he'd have it to me that night. I'm still waiting. I've noticed that he does this to others too. If you don't want to do a job, don't string them along. Simply say it's out of your scope of work. I don't get why he kept replying saying he'd get me a quote if he had no intention to.

I’ve been using him since June. Scheduling was good and I never had an issue with that. He’s primarily a painting contractor, but he can also do handyman repairs. I like his communication; he tells me what’s going on and if he runs into any issues that he has to fix. He has no problems correcting any parts of the project.

The worker that prepared the drywall was excellent. He was a perfectionist and worked above and beyond what was expected of him. The two painters were very professional. They asked me to review their work to make sure I was satisfied. They didn't seem bothered when I asked them to touch up a small area.

It went well! My fiance and I were very impressed with

when he came to give us a quote on services. He spent a lot of time pointing out little details about the work we needed that other companies did not address. He had the highest price out of everyone we got quotes from but we just liked him the most so we figured it was worth it. His team completed our project in 3-4 days. The paint looks great and the advice and guidance

and his team are extremely professional. We couldn't be happier and will use them again (and again).

Bid process, project itself and follow-up were great and hassle-free.
I recommend as highly as possible
