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.

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.

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.

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 cabinets and new drawer and door fronts: It was obvious that he took shorts cuts. He told me me he was going to sand existing cabinets, clean before spraying first coat. He said he was going to sand between coats -( this is standard practice for this type of work to achieve smooth results). He cleaned with TSP and proceeded to prime - no sand. I never saw any sand paper until the following week only after we complained about bumpiness. A lot of areas he didn't bother caulking as he said he was planning to do. He did not properly sand between coats as there were many doors and drawers fronts that had particulates all over them - they looked bumpy and felt bumpy. Not smooth like he told me they would be. We had him redo many and he proceeded to sand aggressively to remove bumps - resulting in deep scratches that were difficult to cover with the the new coat of spray. A lot of areas around existing cabinets in the kitchen were not touched at all by primer or paint. He did not go back to recheck with a fine brush to fix these areas. I will be doing this myself now as I have lost complete trust.

The newly installed moulding - same issues. Particulates, deep scratches from aggressive sanding, on and on.
Things he quoted saying include: "I don't have patience for fine detail work." And, I was around a corner in my house and I over heard him say to his helper; "F**# it, this is faster." I walked around the corner and over to him and he was clearly surprised I was right there.
There were days he was gone -obviously do another job - leaving his poor helper by himself. Then end result here was the entire job took ridiculously long and both of them were rushing threw all my expensive moulding and doors. His helper told me he had to tell him to "slow down." The end result - sloppy workmanship at our expense.
Bottom line: Go elsewhere. There are a lot of painters out there. This painter overextends himself - more concerned about booking as much work as possible to make the most money. He rushes because he's stressed about getting to his next job - which he later admitted to me. My cabinet installer also pointed out to me all the things this painter missed and all the flaws.

arrived the week before to review the work and the types of paint that we wanted. We scheduled the day for the next week. He arrived on time and completed all the work within 5 hours. He was neat and completely cleaned up the space after the job. He did additional caulking around the walls and the backsplash. I would use

His services are very reasonably priced and he bases his pricing on the height of my ceilings and walls. He is very dependable and clean with his work. He wants to make me happy and wants to satisfy what color tones I want. I have had him match walls with a beanbag and he did it. He is incredible. We went through several samples of the cabinet stain until I found exactly what I wanted. He did a great job.

Prompt, professional service! Great attention to all the details and did a wonderful job with prep and clean-up. The paint job looks beautiful and they finished everything in less than 2 days which we really appreciated- the inconvenience of having all of our furniture in the middle of the rooms was minimal given they finished so quickly and did high quality work!

did a terrific job and finished many more projects than I expected. While he was waiting for the repair to dry, he even offered to caulk the windows. I was very pleased. I only wish the price charged was a little more reasonable so I could have work done more often.
