"They did a amazing job!!! The price was fair and they answered all my questions!! Took care of our dogs in the backyard and stayed on the job!!
" and his son
were on time and did everything and then some!!!

-Ryan M.

"We had several contractors bid on the job. Some did just paint and we would have to get our own carpenter for repairs. Some contractors didn't act interested."
Company wanted our business from the start. They provided a written contract detailing all the work and met our expectations, flawlessly. Their quote was about in the middle of all the quotes, but they provided all the detail of the work and there were no surprises.(On jobs less than $5,000., they don't ask for any down payment to get started. So we had no requirement to pay until the job was completed to our liking!). I really enjoyed the Painters. Each was polite and very anxious to make our experience a great one. On many occasions, the lead painters would walk with me around the house to double and triple check their work and they wanted to fully understand my expectations. Even when I was about to pay the lead painter, he noticed a small spot that didn't cover well. He immediately re-opened the paint and touched it up. I am very impressed with
and will definitely recommend them to everyone. AAA+++

Starting a house painting job? Learn what you need about picking the right exterior house paint colors, painting yourself or hiring a home painter.

Life seems to pass by more quickly these days. It feels like every time I turn around, I find something that needs to be fixed, maintained or replaced.

Regardless of if you are painting or staining your fence, the most important step is to clean with a pressure washer first. (Photo by Summer Galyan)

Quality materials and proper application can make all the difference when it comes so staining your fence.

Angie's Answers


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! 

House Painting reviews in Albion


I thought these guys did an excellent job of painting my home's exterior, and the price was about what I expected. It had been about 13 years since the last time, so it really needed paint. Two men spent almost five full days on it. They pressure washed, then spent a full day scraping, hammering nails, and sanding. Then a thick coat of primer, followed by almost a full day of caulking. Two coats of the main color, then two coats of trim color, and also the exterior of my front door. They were very careful with their lines on the trim and front door. When finished, the three of us walked around the house with the paint buckets and touched up all the little spots that needed it. I am very satisfied and will call them again next time.
- Barry B.

It went great. I had pre-purchased 6 hours of work through an Angie's List special promotion. They arrived in a timely manner. They asked if I would prefer to replace the door or fix it. When I said "fix it" they said no problem. They went to Loews bought the needed parts for $40, came back with the receipt, and fixed the door. They did not

up any of the items they purchased. You can now open the door with your index finger. They did a phenomenal job. I feel like most services would have told me the door was beyond repair and marked up the replacement. They saved me hundreds of dollars. I would recommend them to anyone. Thanks EA Services. I'll definitely look to you for assistance in my new home.
- Marshall D.

Eventually was able to set an appointment for

to come look at my projects on 10 August. He said I would have bids on my two projects within a couple of days. It is now more than two weeks, three phone calls, and two texts later and I STILL don't have the estimates. I don't know how people stay in business this way.

I felt real good about my experiance with these guys. They were the only one to show me there license Insurance and provide refferences. Furthermore they explained things in detail every night by email. All and all a real good job

Out of all the painters we contacted from Angie's List, Rod was the most responsive and interested in the work. He is bright, articulate, motivated, organized, diligent, respectful, and professional in the way he communicates and works. We agreed on a price and a mutually agreeable date and time for the work. The painter,

, was the most hard working craftsman we have ever had work in our home, over the past 20 years. He did not once check his cell phone, he only took a brief lunch break, and he worked quietly and diligently the entire day. He even stayed past normal business hours to get the job done.

was obviously experienced and talented at painting, because made no mess and nothing splashed on the walls or floor. He was polite and I would ask for him again, next time we need a painter. The finished job looks like a top notch professional painter did the work. An additional important point for us: when the work was done, that is when we look things over and find a few things that need touch up. When we had other painters in the past, they complained and were in a hurry to leave to go to the next job, which is why we looked for a different painter this time. Not

Work was great. they fully prepared all surfaces and patched all nail holes (which turned out to be a lot of work). Painted all surfaces with 2 coats of paint. We were 100% satisfied!

With 2 guys, the job should not have required more than a day. The workers spent an inordinate amount of time getting to hardware store and back for paint. Needed extra day and more $$ to finish job.
