"
came out promptly, evaluated the job, and gave me a fair quote. I accepted his offer. He came out when he said that he would and performed" the job exactly as I expected. He was fair, professional, and skilled. I am very pleased with the work that he did and highly recommend him. He is a fantastic exterior painter (probably interior as well but I only required exterior painting). He left no mess and I am pleased with his work and his fair pricing. Thanks

" The work was done to perfection in a timely manner. There is no sign of previous damage to kitchen ceiling and the painting was done with professional care" with two coats, leaving a perfect finished look, we are very satisfied with. The outside cellar stair wall was a real eyesore and now looks amazing. Two coats were impeccably applied to everything, taking the upmost care to be sure all was correctly dried, and lines meeting the walls were perfect. The men were very neat and considerate in their work and polite in their manner. Mr.
said he would do the work as if it were his own - and he did.

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.

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!

came out ahead of time and made sure he understood what we wanted and needed when repainting the bonus room over our garage. He made several good suggestions that really made the room turn out great. The crew arrived on time and were quick and professional. The price is pretty much the going rate for professional paint service--not inexpensive but I have learned the hard way you get what you pay for. i would definitely hire them again.

A crew of 12 men spent 3 1/2 days in our townhouse painting ceilings, walls, and crown and baseboard moldings. The project manager reviewed the job with us prior to the arrival of the painters and listened very carefully to our instructions and concerns. The painters went to work and we were amazed to find no drips anywhere! After painting, our house was cleaned of all the trash, although left a bit dusty.
Corning Interior Painters Provider Name Locked
did a final walk through with us, pleased himself with a job well-done! He encouraged us to call him should we find any little spots as we used our home; we had a short list of tiny little smudges here and there which two of his painters promptly cleaned/fixed. We will happily refer CPR Painting to our friends and clients.

I called
Corning Interior Painters Provider Name Locked
on 7/15/15 regarding this project. The paint on our windows and front door trim was peeling badly so it needed to be cleaned up and repainted. I told
Corning Interior Painters Provider Name Locked
that for various reasons, we needed to have this job done by August 4, a very narrow time frame. Other painting companies had told me that they were booked out into September.
Corning Interior Painters Provider Name Locked
said he would look at the job and see if it could be slipped into his busy schedule. He came to our house on 7/16/15 and looked at the condition of the trim. The scraping and clean up would take some time, but that he could fit us in. We had one delay because of rain, but on 7/27 and 7/28, he and his crew scraped, cleaned and painted the trim on 18 windows and the front door trim. When they scraped away the old paint, they found a lot of bad wood. They sealed it with some kind of wood putty to protect it for the short term. They did a great job, and the clean-up was immaculate, especially considering how much peeling there was.
Corning Interior Painters Provider Name Locked
was great - prompt in his initial inspection of the house, and very quick to get the job done. When we are ready to make longer term repairs on the wood trim, we will definitely call

again.
