"They were fun, friendly, and professional. Provided a great experience from the quote all the way through to the painting. They put my wants first and made sure" I was 100% satisfied. Will be using them again as my go-to handymen.

-Jordan M.

's team did a very good job. I could not be more please. They found matching stucco panels that others said were no longer made. Their" price was was the best out of other quotes by far. The lead painter was very good about showing me the repairs that were needed and showed me the rotted wood after he pulled it off the house. The only thing that surprised me was we never say Mr.
again. I expected him to supervise the job but he didn't. I guess he did not need to because his workers did an excellent job.

Gray old fence next to fresh new fence
Fencing, Painting - Exterior

Dear Angie: What’s involved in restoring and staining a grayed-out fence? – Srinivasa V., Plano, Texas

home exterior
Painting - Exterior

Life seems to pass by more quickly these days. It feels like every time I turn around, I find something that needs to be fixed, maintained or replaced.

Regardless of if you are painting or staining your fence, the most important step is to clean with a pressure washer first. (Photo by Summer Galyan)

Quality materials and proper application can make all the difference when it comes so staining your fence.

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! 

House Painting reviews in Ocala


It is rare that I write a review the same day that a provider finished but I was just that impressed with
Ocala Exterior Painters Provider Name Locked
Painting. I met with
Ocala Exterior Painters Provider Name Locked
initially about 2 weeks ago and told him what we needed done and he provided a fair estimate and immediately put us in the schedule.
He and his crew showed up right on time and walked me through everything and asked me if I had any questions. He and his crew did a top notch job and did everything -- moving furniture, removing stuff off walls, patching holes -- I didn't have to life a finger (which is the whole point of hiring someone -- something he and his crew totally get!).
When they finished (on time), it was done perfectly and they cleaned up as if they were never here to begin with. And
Ocala Exterior Painters Provider Name Locked
immediately followed up just to make sure we were happy. Every step of the way
Ocala Exterior Painters Provider Name Locked
was very communicative and he delivered everything on time, on budget and with high quality.
We have used multiple painters for multiple jobs since we purchased this house 7 years ago. we've had the interior painted, the entire interior painted and some rooms we've painted more than once. In my opinion
Ocala Exterior Painters Provider Name Locked
did the best job (at the best price).

- Eric S.

Ocala Exterior Painters Provider Name Locked
and his team were exceptionally friendly and professional. Despite the job being fairly small (all the roof trim, and 2 window frames) he was very responsive and quick to answer all of my questions. He noticed some areas that needed caulking and identified those for us ahead of time and offered to patch them up (yes please!). From start to finish, his team only needed 3-4 hours to do the work. They were so fast that they had time to
Ocala Exterior Painters Provider Name Locked
while I returned to the house to pay them--so they painted 3 extra windows! I had simply mentioned them in passing as being on next summer's To-Do list, and
Ocala Exterior Painters Provider Name Locked
's team just took care of them for us. Great service.
Some of our windows were in pretty bad shape with a lot of bare wood exposed, and
Ocala Exterior Painters Provider Name Locked
shuffled his schedule and one of his teams' schedules around to make sure we were taken care of before the rain hit this week.
All in all, I would absolutely hire
Ocala Exterior Painters Provider Name Locked
again. I hate painting, it's one of those things you do to try to save money but I think after seeing his team's speed and skill I'm done--worth hiring a pro for.
- Elizabeth H.

Ocala Exterior Painters Provider Name Locked
did an excellent job. He was on time, professional and a real artist. I had a set of replacement windows installed a while back, but the job was very poorly done. Java installed and modified the trim to make them look as though they were built with the house. He did an awesome job. They look great. He repaired the hinge on a kitchen cabinet and reinstalled the door. It now hangs perfectly. You cannot tell there was ever a problem. He also installed a smoke detector. It looks great. I would highly recommend him and I plan on using him in the future.
- Sherry C.

Overall, the job preparation, progress, and final products were exceptional. The painters are very punctual and detailed-oriented. Our work was completed in
Ocala Exterior Painters Provider Name Locked
2015, and to-date, we are astounded by the fantastic results.
- Caldwell G.

Painters were very professional, always punctual, cleaned after himself each day, updated me, as necessary, and supervisor checked on work frequently and asked for my feedback.
Very satisfied with
Ocala Exterior Painters Provider Name Locked
- Barbara B.

He called back the same day I left a message to get a quote.
He showed up at the appointed time to look at the job and give me a quote which I had in hand, less than 30 minutes later.
We set up a date for the work, and the job was completed then.
He used drop cloths everywhere. Everything was done right.
I would describe him as prompt, courteous, friendly (yet takes care of business).
I will definitely hire him again.

We hired

Ocala Exterior Painters Provider Name Locked
Remodeling to repair the damage on our home from ice dams last winter. We are very particular about the 100 year old house and were looking for someone who would take the time to preserve the beauty of our Arts and Crafts period home. We immediately felt at ease with
Ocala Exterior Painters Provider Name Locked
. He was very thorough and fair during the proposal process. As the work progressed, we liked the results and asked
Ocala Exterior Painters Provider Name Locked
and his team to take on more projects including painting the exterior of our house.
Ocala Exterior Painters Provider Name Locked
and his crew were very professional and customer service oriented.
Ocala Exterior Painters Provider Name Locked
consistently responded to my questions or concerns immediately and because of his high standard of service, we never felt out of the loop. The quality of his work was extremely professional. He gave us straight answers to our questions and did everything he said he was going to do. I would defiantly use E&L Painting and Plastering (
Ocala Exterior Painters Provider Name Locked
) again and will recommend him to our friends.
- Jodi N.

I made arrangements for Wednesday 9/16 to have
Ocala Exterior Painters Provider Name Locked
meet at my place at 2pm to inspect the job and provide a quote thereafter. I purposely took time off from work that afternoon to meet him at 2pm. He didn't show up at 2pm and sent his assistant an hour later only after I left a couple messages with him and the office reminding him of the appointment time. The assistant took pictures of the job and said he would get back to me beginning of next week with a quote. Its been over 3 weeks and I have not received a quote nor have they returned any of my voicemails or text messages.
