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

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!

They promised at least three times via e-mail to set a date for painting, but never followed up. This has gone on over a two plus month period of time. I am requesting return f my money.

Upon agreeing on an estimate for the bathroom cabinets,
Wilton Interior Painters Provider Name Locked
said he was very busy and could not start for a month. I agreed to this and waited. After a month or so, I called to ask when he was going to start. All I was able to do is leave a voice mail. I waited. I left another voice mail. I waited. Finally after not hearing from him I hired another painter, thus setting my project back almost 2 months.
I don't mind if someone is too busy but it is just common courtesy to return a phone call knowing that I have been waiting to hear from him.

Services were not used as an estimate was never provided. After showing up late to an initial consultation and waiting almost a week to never receive an estimate, I would be very worried about how the services would be preformed if given the job.

has a good crew, very polite and responsive.

was able to meet quickly, worked with our very busy schedule so we could move in to our (older) house within a month of purchase. Painting looks great, we added on extra items as we went, I think that flexibility on

part was a big asset. Only complaint was on the back end, things weren't cleaned up completely (sort of standard LA painter policy, cleanup isn't in the bid unless you ask for it) but they worked late into sunday so I took care of that myself. I'd definitely use them again, we were very happy with the job. I felt like they were painting their own house, they took that kind of care. That's a pretty big compliment.

I called the number provided and left a message.
Wilton Interior Painters Provider Name Locked
called me back a few hours later and we set up a time for the following week.
Wilton Interior Painters Provider Name Locked
arrived on time on the first day and got to work as soon as I showed him the walls and what colors to paint. I got him some water and a sandwich as a courtesy and he appreciated that I did that. He worked through the day and finished about 7 walls. He came back the next day and finished the other 3 walls which took half a day. He cleaned up after himself at the end of the job.
I later discovered a small paint stain on my carpet that he had tried to clean up but ended up smudging the carpet in the process. I wish he had told me about it and also had been more careful.

Mixed success
The various jobs done inside the house were quite satisfactory.
The power washing of the house was excellent.
The removal of the hot tub was not done to my liking.
The hot tub was indeed removed well but in doing so, a lot of the deck was also removed. We were told that the deck needed complete replacing. Because all the support beams were left exposed, I looked but did not see nearly as much damage as we were told. So half the deck is still open to the ground and all the supporting beams have nails sticking up.
When they were washing the wall and deck, all the furniture and plants were moved into the driveway. They expected, I guess, that we would replace the deck but the price we were given for the deck replacement was three times what we could afford and what I thought it should be. So now, three months later, all the deck furniture and plants are piled in the driveway. What a mess!
Because of my age and health, I am unable to replace these items during the summer but will begin when it gets cooler. Nevertheless, I don't know where I will put half of the items because half the deck is still missing.
I do not let my grandchildren go play on the deck any more.

. We got on their schedule for the job. The two men who showed up to paint were great! Great workers, and they did a fantastic job.

It went perfectly fine! We connected on a Friday via telephone. He worked me in for the following Monday. We worked out the details via text messaging throughout the weekend (price, paint colors, start time, payment terms). I would definitely use him again!
