"The initial contact was very prompt and professional. Estimates for 4 properties were prepared very quickly and sent via email which was very convenient. Since we" did not have prior experience with this company we decided to commit to a single property to see how things would go. Scheduling was a bit of an issue due to late summer backlog and fall rain. That is to be expected, of course. The only concern that I had was when the pressure washing and subsequent staining was scheduled I had little to no confirmation / communication. Since this is a property in which we do not reside, but rather rent, it was important that we communicate with our tenants and that could have been smoother. This was a new deck that had no previous stain and the color selection was also not very smooth although, we were able to get a color that we selected prior to them staining, so it all worked out. The job was done well / as promised and a follow-up touch-up was completed for the steps. We are too late in the year to complete the other 3 properties, but will consider using
again.

"I moved in to my new home in August and wanted to have the paint "freshened up".
provided an accurate estimate and was very accommodating" in terms of my requests. He and his team did a great job matching the existing paint colors. They completed the job earlier than expected and were extremely neat and professional. I will definitely use this company again and would happily recommend them!

should painting or florring come first in a remodeling project (Photo by member Jane A. of Alpharetta, Ga.)

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.

Utilizing the proper tools can ensure the best paint job possible.

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.

Painting - Interior, Drywall

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.

Before you toss it, check the label. Some hazardous items — even batteries and ink cartridges — should be disposed safely, which doesn't mean at the curb! Why?

Painting - Interior

Have you ever had a leaky roof leave a water stain on your ceiling? Has your home settled over the years and you are starting to see stress fractures and nail heads popping out of the drywall?

These are the most common problems with ceilings, and unless they are addressed, they can be quite an eyesore. If you are ready to tackle the project yourself, follow these simple tips and you will have a freshly painted ceiling in no time.

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.

The workmanship and overall experience was extremely unsatisfactory and expensive for what the outcome was.

-We bought the $199 special for 8 man hours. Thereafter, it was an hourly rate of $75 for two painters. The $75/hr includes clean up/paint brush cleaning. In comparison to working with past painters,

was slow and inefficient. Be sure to keep track of break times because we found that there was a discrepancy. Next time we will have a painter bid the job and not work hourly. Progress was so limited and quality was so unsatisfactory that we chose to end the job prior to its completion.
-Furniture, counter tops, mantel, blinds, and light fixtures were not properly protected from paint splatters. There were innumerable paint splatters throughout the painted areas. Prior to

went to buy the paint for the job, he called to insure that we were happy with our choice of color going on below the chair rail because he was concerned it may not be enough of a contrast from the top color above the chair rail. We let him know we were sure. The fact he took that extra step to make sure we were sure of the colors speaks volumes to their customer service. When they arrived, they moved all the furniture, prepped the walls & wasted no time getting right to work.

I noticed that

had a coupon to paint a kitchen, so I decided to go with them, and I was not disappointed. They did an incredible job! I live in an older mobile home and the kitchen was in desperate need of a makeover. Now, it looks like a brand new kitchen. It's absolutely beautiful!! They painted the ceiling, the walls, and all the cabinets. They installed all new hardware on the cabinets, and they even replaced three cabinet doors that were beyond repair. They were prompt, courteous, and meticulous with their painting. I will definitely call them again!
