"Got off to a very late start, a couple of weeks. Then
and one helper came one afternoon and scrapped, washed and primed one side of the house." They came the next couple of days and painted the main body of that section. And then they went away. It basically went like that throughout the process. Starts and stops. He finally told me that a job they were doing in
had gone way longer than had been expected and they seemed to realize just how far it was to Cottage Grove, 25 miles. At one point a young fellow showed up by himself to do trim work on some windows in the front of the house when none of the rest of the house was even painted! I called
and asked 'whats up?' He spoke to the painter and soon the guy left. At one point I was concerned about the quality of the work on the ceiling of the porch and insisted that
come down and have a look. It looked to me that the paint was cracking and getting ready to peel off. He did come down and have the guys scrape off that bit and redo it. They worked in bits and pieces: priming on one side while painting on the other. The job went very long and little had to do with weather. My biggest concern was that he just didn't communicate. I felt that I had to track him down too much. If I had known on some days that they were not coming it would have been so much better. It is for this reason that I would not hire
again. Could be that its just me, but I need communication! What went well: assist with color placement, replacement of siding on garage, rehanging of storm windows. Tidiness of work area, care around my plantings (I had removed some and they asked before trimming others), courtesy of the workers - really sweet guys. And overall my house looks great! It will be interesting to see how it
the Winter.

"It went very well. All workers worked together and had it done in three days. They were extremely friendly and were matriculates of the quality of their work."
checked with me all the time to see if everything was going well as expected. He also called to see if everything was done to my satisfaction. I was very pleased with the quality of work and how fast they got done.

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.

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.

House Painting reviews in Davenport

The job went great. There was considerable prep work as the house had not been painted in many years. He showed up the day he said he would and worked approximately four weeks with two helpers to complete the job. The house looks fantastic.
I plan to use him again for some inside painting.

The price was fantastic. (The bidder later complained to me that the job actually took more work than he thought. Not my problem

) The prep guys moved some furniture off the deck, took it apart and lost all the hardware. That was a bummer. The paint guys were great. House looked great. BUT: When the paint started bubbling and peeling in a couple spots the next summer, nobody returned my various calls about it. There is supposed to be a warranty.

Very responsive, fast and professional with stunning quality. Left the home cleaner than when they arrived! Job was bigger than expected given poor quality of previous paint layers, but original price estimate stood.
Absolutely top notch from initial call to completion.

The result was outstanding. Special effort was expended in the prep, caulking all seams and filling cracks in the existing wood surfaces. The painting workmanship was exceptionally high quality. Transition in the seams between siding and trim were high points in the craftmanship of the work. The owner, and other managerial personnel, checked regularly to insure that I was satisfied. I would definitely recommend them and plan to use them in the future.
