"The painter was prompt, friendly and accommodating. He did a very professional job on both rooms and completed the work quickly. We are very happy with how the work" turned out and would highly recommend this company to anyone considering hiring a painter. We feel that we received a great job at a good value.

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.

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!

Integrity was terrific. Because of personal issues I needed to postpone at the last minute. They were very understanding. We rescheduled and they started on time. I also added a third color (to a few of the trim pieces). Finished earlier than we thought. Very professional crew.

was very professional and courteous. They did an excellent job with removing the wallpaper from the kitchen and bathroomand then painting them.They were very careful and lined paper on the floors and kitchen cabinets to prevent spillage and drips. We were thinking about doing this project ourselves but glad we didn't try it. Removing wallpaper is not an easy job. We would use

To provide the quote for the job of painting the interior of my house,
Tampa Interior Painters Provider Name Locked
measured all of the rooms in order to give a more accurate quote as to how much the job would cost. One of my concerns in getting this done was having to move all of the furniture and pictures in preparation for the job and then replacing everything.
Tampa Interior Painters Provider Name Locked
assured me that his crew would take care of all of this for me and the only things that he asked me to take care of were precious breakables. On the day the job was to start, his crew of six men arrived at my house about 30 minutes early but waited patiently until the appointed time to be sure that I was ready for them. As soon as they came in, they started prepping the house to first paint the ceilings by moving furniture and covering everything with plastic. They took pictures of all of my decorations and pictures so they could be put back in the same places when they were done. They worked continuously throughout the day, only taking a short break for lunch. By the end of the first day, they had painted all of the ceilings and the walls in the master suite, the study, the kitchen, and the hallway including the base boards and doors in these rooms, as well as some of the formal living areas and the family room. This included inside the closets in these areas which meant removing all of the items in the closets and the shelves. Before they left for the day, they moved everything back into the closets and put back all of the furniture and window treatments in these rooms. The next day a crew of four again arrived early and started in where they left off. Before they left, as with the previous day, they moved all the furniture back into place, put everything back in the closets, rehung all of my pictures and paintings and put back all of my decorative pieces. Their supervisor,
Tampa Interior Painters Provider Name Locked
, examined the entire house and had the crew fix any area that he was not completely satisfied with. They even ran the vacuum before they left. Because of the size of the job, I had expected at least part of it to be done by spraying but every bit was done with rollers and brushes. I have not found one spot with even a small drop of paint. I was here while they were painting and never saw any of them get a drop of paint on anything. They were very professional and extremely efficient. My house looks beautiful and I know that I made the right choice with

I contacted this service and requested an estimate on interior painting. An estimator arrived and viewed the house, then gave me a brochure with some company documents of a general nature (business cards, licenses, list of services, etc.) He discussed the painting of four-five rooms with me, and promised me an estimate by e-mail in a few days. That was a week and a half ago. I was not only put off by the estimator's unasked-for comment: "It'll be more than you think it should be!" but by his inability to distinguish crown molding from a picture rail. The worst thing, of course, was completely dropping the ball and not phoning, e-mailing, or getting back to me with an estimate. Perhaps this company has so many large jobs on their docket that painting a historic bungalow is too trifling for them. If so, they should state that in their advertising. ("Big jobs only!") Or maybe they're just unprofessional, sloppy, and inconsiderate of a homeowner's time. Either way, I wouldn't use this company if they were the last one on the planet, and I think Angie's List should reconsider listing them.
