"The job was professional from start to finish. The painters were patient with us during the color selection process, went to the store and picked up all necessary" supplies. The job was finished in 2 days and they even came back to do very minor touchups a week later. Very friendly and courteous

"I chose
for my exterior house painting based on the great reviews here, and am very happy to say that once again Angie's List has not" let me down! When I met with
to discuss the job he was very personable, honest. and had some good suggestions for how to proceed. I could tell right away this is someone I can trust and will get the job done right.
and his crew spent the first day pressure washing the entire house exterior, removing all the mold and dirt. There was a lot. When I got home the next day, all the stucco and wall cracks were patched and sealed, and the exterior almost completely painted. Very fast service, and professionally done. I am extremely happy with the results, and would highly recommend this company!

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.

I wanted to use their services to add a step to the pathway that leads to Patio. The existing step had to be increased in height and one more step added. The provider said they don't do masonry / concrete service to increase the height of step. He would just

They arrived on schedule, worked straight through and were done in a day. Very professional and personable young men. They cleaned up after themselves and did a great job. Plan to use them again for more work this Fall/winter.

I have used Heritage for years, for both interior and exterior work. They are super - very professional, perfectionists, excellent work that they stand behind. Highly recommended! You can certainly find less expensive painters, but you truly get what you pay for!!

They arrived on time, were polite and respectful. Got right to work. First day they prepared the house for painting, second day painted and 1/2 day on the third day finished painting, cleaned up and had me do a walk around. I was pleased. Would definitely use them again.

was very clean and professional. The only con is that he was a one man operation and needed a little help moving the furniture, which was fine with us. Overall he did an excellent job. I would definitely use his services again and refer him to my friends & family.
