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!

Courteous and professional, they arrived on time and did an excellent job. Painting & Home Improvement did a great job and within two days it was all done; no mess or fuss. They took care to avoid getting paint on my newly installed carpets and the tight space in which to work did not present a problem. I'm very happy.

Every day they were here by 8am. The job took approximately six days. There were about 3-4 workers here every day. These guys took pride in their work, and it shows. They were very careful and polite, and did not cut corners anywhere. Also, I noticed that they had great camaraderie with one another. The outside was cleaned every day.

There estimator was here the same day we called our insurance company. The clean up crew started the next morning. It took 7 to 8 weeks to complete the entire job. The end results are wonderful. The demolition, clean up, and remodel crews were hard working, professional, and pleasant to work with. We highly recommend their work. Our insurance company paid for all the work so the price listed above is approximate.

did an amazing job on my kitchen, closets, bathrooms and pavers. I worked with ASI for the design portion and Sion as my contractor. They were incredibly helpful and always responded to my questions. RC handled everything from start to finish, so I never had to worry about anything. I gave Sion a budget and a general idea of what I wanted, and he helped me design a kitchen that exceeded my expectations. My backyard is amazing with new pavers and gazebo. RC upgraded our pool and installed lights. Sion stayed within my budget and timeline. Every aspect of this renovation was handled with the highest level of care, responsibility and professionalism. We are very happy with

and his crew are great! Last year they painted all the trim on my house, and power washed the siding, and did a great job (see my prior review of this job). While panting the casement windows on my garage,

I initially responded to an Angie's list special, advertising a 10" x !2" redwood or Trex deck for only $1499.99. This, of course, sounded too good to be true, and, alas, was. don't get me wrong, I was completely satisfied with the final construction and the price, the latter of which was almost ten times the advertised price....More /> The reason for this is
Paso Robles Interior Painters Provider Name Locked
. One need only read the clearly labeled "fine print" accompanying the ad, which clearly indicates that it does not include demolition, parapets (railing), support structure, roof, or painting, all of which I needed. One reviewer called this a "bait and switch" advertising technique, which one may feel when faced with the "sticker shock," but the deal I got was more than fair, price-wise, and expertly done with a high quality finished product.
The deck that needed replacement was at least 30-40 years old, and was built with wood. The years had badly eroded the deck, which was warped, with protruding nails, and a termite infested foundation, and was at the point of imminent collapse. But the old deck was significantly larger than the advertised 10" x 12" deck, and was elevated (thus requiring rails), was built on support beams, and also had an overhead wooden canopy. So replacing it required much more than what was advertised , and a consequently higher price.
Sion and Asi, the proprietors of
Paso Robles Interior Painters Provider Name Locked
, were responsive, and quickly met with my wife and me to discuss and plan removing the old deck, and replacing it with a new one. They are both intelligent, experienced building contractors, with an educational background in structural engineering. While we had a choice of termite resistant, chemically treated termite resistant redwood, we elected to go with a wood substitute called Trex. This a composite material, available in many colors, including one that very much resembled the redwood that we were replacing (called Select Saddle). This is a composite material, which is virtually waterproof, does not require yearly maintenance, is washable with soap and water (or simply water), and is impervious to termites.
Their construction crew rapidly and efficiently demolished the.old deck, and hauled it away. They then replaced the termite ridden supporting beams with chemically treated, compressed termite resistant wood beams. They expertly installed the Trex material, using stainless steel spacers, which keep the separate rows of Trex at exactly the right spacing, allowing water to drain off. They also extended the gutters and connected them to the downspout, which should keep water away from the front door, which opens onto the deck. Next was the construction of the railing (or parapet), which was done with a beautiful contrasting whiteTrex. Lastly, was the installation of supporting beams and canopy, both made of termite resistant wood, and painted with high quality exterior white paint.
The result was a brand new, handsomely done, low maintenance deck, which serves as both my front porch and an entrance to the front door of the house.
As is customary, I paid for the work and materials in several increments, as the work progressed, with the final payment upon completion.
While dealing with contractors is seldom a pleasant experience (trust factor rating right below used car salesman), Sion and Asi of
Paso Robles Interior Painters Provider Name Locked
really do "break the mold," and go against the grain. They entirely deserve the high rating that they have on Angie's List.
