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.
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.
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!
House Painting reviews in Union Springs
His brother painted our house next door. We live in a gated community and they homeowners wanted to change the color of the house paint and of course, to do this you have to go through the
While he was there, he worked erratically, an hour one day, a few hours another day. He worked a total of seven separate days and the hours he was here totaled 32 hours. He had himself and one other person for five of those days, and he mostly told the guy what to do and did nothing himself. the last two days were the 7 hour days and he had two other guys, one who was clearly working his first day with
The person who worked with him the first five days made many inappropriate comments to me and I felt uncomfortable though I laughed it off at the time. This may not matter to most people: there was one of those big fuzzy orange and black caterpillars walking on the house and they just sprayed over it with paint.
The whole experience was awful from start to finish. If you even think of working with this guy ask around first. Ask at the local paint stores if you should work with him. While you are asking, get a painter that they suggest and use them. After I got other estimates to fix the job Superior Painting did I found out from the painters that he has the worst reputation. Get references and do not trust the reviews on this site because this is not a good or honest or pleasant person to do your work for you.
