"Due to extenuating circumstances the project took longer than anticipated, however the end product was worth it. There were a few glitches along the way, but Ed," who was managing the project, was very responsive and dealt with any issues to our satisfaction.
, who did everything but the tile work was excellent at his job and a pleasure to work with. They were concientious about keeping the house clean and covered the floors and stairs while working, but took it up before the weekend. They arrived when they said they would and even on occasion,
arrived early and waited in his car until the appointed time. The tile installers that were hired for the job also did an excellent job. We would definitely hire
and his crew again.

"OUTSTANDING!!!!! Home looks beautiful. They worked with us on scheduling and always had plenty of help. They moved furniture and pictures (which I was planning" to do) they took photos so everything went back exactly where it was. When we did a walk though we could not find anything that needed to be fixed or touched up. They were more critical of their work then we were. I have used this company in the past and the results were the same. You get what you pay for....I highly recommend them.

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.

Plastering, Painting - Interior

Dear Angie: How important is it to repair plaster before repainting? Our ceilings have peeling paint that we’re pretty sure was caused by past water damage. Since the water problem is no longer an issue, can we simply repaint the ceilings or should we first repair any underlying plaster damage? – Sara S., Elgin, Illinois

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!

The whole experience went extremely well. We were very impressed with the professionalism and helpfulness of

, the crew leader.
The process started in late January with

providing an estimate for their services. He was on time and spent a considerable amount of time reviewing the work to be done and preparing a detailed estimate. We were impressed with the pricing as it was less than two other estimates we had received. Later, we found there was some additional work we wanted to have Integrity provide.
Tampa Interior Painters Provider Name Locked
promptly came out and adjusted the estimate. Integrity recommended a certain paint. We found wanted to use a different paint, and they were very flexible in doing that.
They scheduled us for February 23rd and came out right at the time they indicated they would be here.
Tampa Interior Painters Provider Name Locked
and his crew of
Tampa Interior Painters Provider Name Locked
and
Tampa Interior Painters Provider Name Locked

In summary, we were extremely pleased with our experience with

My grandmother needed wallpaper removed from her bathroom. Relatives started the job and accidentally started tearing the drywall underneath, so grandma asked me to find and hire a professional to come that very day. Not only did

Our experience with
Tampa Interior Painters Provider Name Locked
was extremely disappointing and expensive!
Tampa Interior Painters Provider Name Locked
, the owner, was initially very responsive and assured us his company could complete the work within our time frame. While the estimate was quite a bit higher than that of other companies, it appeared that they were going to be much more thorough in their work and on that basis we decided to move forward. I could write a lengthy review of all of the problems we encountered with
Tampa Interior Painters Provider Name Locked
, but suffice it to say that their work was incomplete, lacked attention to detail, and required multiple follow-up visits with some of the work still left undone as of this date.

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
Tampa Interior Painters Provider Name Locked
and

and decided to give them a call.
Tampa Interior Painters Provider Name Locked
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,

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.
