"When i initially called , he came immediately to look at the room, and was willing to get to work right away. He offered to buy all the necessary" materials for us, adding their cost to the final bill. The work was done thoroughly and professionally. The job was completed in two days, at a cost of $400/day. Although this price seemed appropriate for the quality of work provided, I will note that the second day of work was only about half as long as the first day. All in all, provided excellent service, and I would definitely recommend them to someone willing to pay for a very professional job.

" , and did an outstanding job. They arrived everyday on time, worked hard with few breaks." Worked through the end of the day and cleaned up well. They were a pleasure to have in our home. The one thing that worked to our advantage was a detailed scope of work. This was a comprehensive document that detailed exactly our expectations from the number of primer coats, number of top coats, type and brand of paint to be used and a list of exactly what work we wanted done. The only aspect of the job we felt could have gone better was the surface preparation. We were fairly explicit in our scope of work that every surface was to be prepared to a level we wanted. This included nail pops, nail holes on trim, dings and gouges. While there was a cursory effort I had to check and double check all the areas I had identified as areas I would have corrected had I done the painting myself. At the end of the day I would areas I wanted more attention. To 's credit he addressed everyone of the items cheerfully and properly. Most of this had to do with the fact that his crew's work may not have been scrunitized sufficiently. Nature of the beast that the professional has the experience and expertise to do a job to one level. Employees, not necessarily. After final payment was made we discovered a few elements that we missed. came back promptly and fixed each of them. This usually when customers have problems, not here. While his prices were a tad high compared to other bids at the end of the day we got an outstanding paint job at a fair price. We highly recommend . With contractors often the cause of anguish and confrontation is one of the good guys.

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!

I contacted for an estimate to paint an average sized bedroom, which needed a lot of prep & repair work. The ceiling was peeling and there was a settlement crack. The room was totally empty so no furniture needed to be moved or worked around. Also, our single car wooden garage door needed to be sanded and repainted. Heritage ...More was very responsive as far as setting up an appointment to give us an estimate, and arrived and took a look, answered all my questions, and told me what would be involved. He e-mailed an estimate very promptly. The only problem is that the estimate he gave us was more than twice the price of two other painting companies, one of which we went with, and whose work we are very happy with. Otherwise, I believe this company is knowledgeable and professional, they just were overpriced in my opinion.

Wonderful job! Mr. was exceptionally professional and generous with his time and expertise, advising us in regards to color choices (the hardest part!). He worked with our time constraints and coordinated with other home improvement professionals working in the same space. The painter, , did a flawless ...More and clean job. When a small space on a newly painted wall was damaged by the other workers, I called Mr. for advise on how to touch up the wall, and he offered to come back out to the house to fix it!

There were two small areas that we felt needed to be touched up, and sent someone over as soon as our schedule ...More allowed to fix them. As a customer, you want to feel like the person you are paying will perform the work as if they were doing it on their own home. This is how I felt with .

I don't think they knew what they were walking into. I had tried to remove the wallpaper in my master bedroom myself and left a ton of the glue behind. They sanded, patched and painted the entire room and even stayed over the time I paid for to get the job done. It looks fantastic. A+ job I plan on using them again for any future painting needs I have.

The crew that did the upstairs bedroom did an outstanding job. They were extremely courteous and professional. They did the fourth wall a different color and the "line" between the colors is perfectly straight; exactly what you hope for but hard to achieve.
did the guest bath on the first floor and was very ...More clean and did a nice job. Everyone was very punctual and completed the jobs in a timely fashion.
Would recommend to anyone.
