"The job went well. I was especially grateful that they were able to do the electrical work without any forewarning at all, as the problems had just surfaced prior" to their visit. They also did the work at the same exact time that other contractors were doing different work on the home, and managed to work around them with no complications.

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.

You may prefer the lived-in look, but a hole in the wall makes your home look a little too lived in. A pro tells how to repair a hole yourself and save money.

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.

We are so happy that we chose

Marshalltown Interior Painters Provider Name Locked
arrived on time, worked hard (almost non-stop), and did a beautiful job. He was friendly; even more important, he was very professional. He explained what he was doing and what the next step would be, and answered all our questions with patience. He was meticulous in his work and the clean-up at the end of each work day.

This job put us out of 10 day of work, The paint job started peeling after a week, the FRP panels had fallen off of the walls within a week too. We reached out to the owner who would never answer the phone and would only communicate through text. His crew was never on time and always left early. They also sanded our concrete floors, which they said would help it from being so slick when water was on it, however, its twice as slick now as it was before. He sent his crew a second time to fix all the problems from the first time. They were just going to do a slapdash job at fixing it so we told them not fix , leave and not come back.

I used the $500 painter for two days deal. It was about a year ago-I may have the date a little wrong. I think I got my money's worth. I asked the painter to repaint some trim areas and repair some small cracks/holes. He covered a lot of area for a reasonable price. We had one or two small mis-communications over what was to be painted but I am happy with the result. The painter did not use tape or edging tools, as far as I noticed. This allowed him to cover a lot of area in the time allotted. A perfectionist might want a bit more precision, but you would need to be willing to pay for the extra time involved. I was happy and got what I wanted.
I had to use one hour of paid time for travel as i live in Wilsonville.

was delayed by an accident on I-64/40. They both are hard workers and very polite young men. They moved furniture, filled in nail holes and cut and painted two coats throughout the basement. I love the new look of my basement and I would highly recommend

Our painter
Marshalltown Interior Painters Provider Name Locked
was absolutely amazing. He took pride in his work and did a beautiful job on our walls - they look so good. He was professional, friendly, kept everything clean, and best of all really cared about how his work looked. He would make it look perfect. He was a wonderful painter and very nice. I plan on hiring this company for more painting because of how great the experience was.

This was the second time I had

do work for me. The first time the job was more extensive and they did a beautiful job.
Marshalltown Interior Painters Provider Name Locked
saw things in my walls and ceilings that I would have never have caught. I was very pleased with the professional job. However, I then had a contractor do some work for me and they totally did a number on my beautiful paint job. I called

and he came over right away and looked at what needed to be fixed and/or repainted. He went above and beyond to make thing look right again. He was able to fit me into his schedule very quickly and now my townhouse is a showplace.

Is a wonderful person to work with, very professional, knows his craft, and did both jobs in a very quick timeframe. He also took care of my furniture and belongings which was very much appreciated. I would have him and his team to another job for me in a split second!!
