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.

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!

Yes - absolutely!  Refinishing is THE VERY BEST way to go to avoid tearing out a perfectly good bathtub that just LOOKS bad after years of use.  Go to the link below for some before and after refinishing pictures of acrylic tubs.

Very well. The Crew was on time each day. Supervisor arrived to review work and speak with me. The Crew had good attention to detail, follow-through and took pride in their work.

They did a terrific job from start to finish. It took about 4 days including set up, painting and cleanup. They covered all my plants and other things so that paint did not drip or get oversprayed on them. Our project manager was

who came out to the site every day to see how the job was progressing. Our painting team included 3 painters, one of them was the lead man who was in charge every day, and he did most of the work, while the other 2 guys seemed to be his helpers. We are very pleased with the finished results.

We are thrilled with the final results. We have gotten positive comments from neighbors and even our letter carrier. Plants were all protected with very minor impact to them. The painters were polite, professional and friendly. They cleaned up at the end of every day. Their work was carefully done with great attention to detail. They washed all of the siding and trim before starting. They power sanded with hand

project manager was on site every day of the project. The company owner came by at least once a week. The rating of "Good" was given to the "Price" category above because the final cost was over the estimate of the work required for the project.

I found

Alma Exterior Painters Provider Name Locked
came out on time and I had the estimate that night. My home had not been painted in 33 years and there was more than normal prep work that would have to be done. I thought it would cost between $3000 and $4000, but the estimate was much much lower. We set a time and date for the job and

I gave Fresh Look Painting my highest recommendation.
Alma Exterior Painters Provider Name Locked
and his crew were fantastic to work with: punctual, considerate and very professional. They worked long hours, taking advantage of the long days in August, even worked a Saturday to get the exterior house painting job done. I can't say enough about how easy it was to deal with
Alma Exterior Painters Provider Name Locked
during the bidding process (and his bid was very reasonable and affordable - his bid was 2/3rds less than a highly rated Angie's List competitor's price).
Alma Exterior Painters Provider Name Locked
was very patient with me, running down all the options for dealing with the deteriorating trim of my house, and figuring out the best way to protect and seal it for the long term. He was straight forward, honest and direct. He had good ideas for testing out the colors we were considering and made sure we knew when we had to have a decision made so his crew could move on it.
Alma Exterior Painters Provider Name Locked
and the crew chief kept me completely in the loop to let me know the progress being made on the job. They also respected two of my primary requests: don't trample the neighbors yard and plants as you place your equipment in that yard (very little space between the northside of the house and the property line, so ladders and tarps had to land in the next door lot); and don't leave a mess anywhere in the yards/clean up after yourselves and don't leave paint chips (old Minneapolis house, so lead paint was a major issue). They performed magnificently on these two points, keeping my garden areas undisturbed and free of paint remnants.
All of the crew members were efficient and easy to deal with. I'm writing this review in March, over six months after the work was completed and with one Winter season nearly finished. The house still looks great and I expect the work to hold up well for many years to come.
I would hire Fresh Look Painting again with no hesitation. They did a great job, at a great price.

Mr.
Alma Exterior Painters Provider Name Locked
re-painted the bathroom of our new home. The original color was a neon bright color with stripes down the wall. He came to look at the area, provided a very reasonable offer (even better than I had hoped for), and was very knowledgable about the entire process. Once I called to confirm, he was very easy to work with and scheduled a date that worked perfectly for my schedule. He was on time, efficient, and did not even leave a mess at all! It's not often that you find someone who will actually clean up after themselves. He even provided the paint in his quote - all I had to do was go to lower, pick out a color, and email him the name of it. That was it! Now, the bathroom looks great. If I ever need any other rooms painted, he will definitely be the one i call. I have already recommended his services to several others, and will continue to do so in the future. His price, expertise, professionalism, and quality of work cannot be beat!

They came unannounced 11/20/14.I happened to come home from work found workers had covered doors and windows and were painting. I asked and was directed to speak tithe foreman. I questioned why I wasn't informed they were coming and about the temperature. Front of house was painted the wrong color foreman did not know the right color. Confirmed email to

job was guaranteed for 1 year. I countered I was sure it would look good for a year but after that probably not. Workers sporadically appeared on days with no call from

prior to them coming. He said that they needed to come the days they could paint. Temperatures were sporadic dropped to 35 or less after paint was applied. The paint on garage door bubbled and ran onto the concrete driveway after painters left. I believe because of the temperature dropping and door being in shaded area on north side of house. The last time it was painted there was no bubbling of the paint it has peeled off. It rained the same day after paint was applied on several occasions, and even snowed on the last day paint was applied on 12/2. Called
