"They did a great job! The price was one of the best, and they still used the best paint:
Evershield. I would highly recommend getting a bid from these guys!

-Zachary V.

and his son
did a great job in painting my kitchen and closets! They showed up on time, prepared to work and went" right to it. They cleaned up everything and left no sign that anybody painted except for the fresh paint job.
came out to give me an estimate, which was very reasonable for the amount of work to be done. They were able to start the job within a few days. I was so happy with their work that I asked if they could do a few handyman type things for me. They came back the following week and hung all of my curtain rods, towel rods, etc. I definitely recommend
. He was honest, reasonably priced, and did a wonderful job!

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. 
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.

first measure was incorrect, which delayed the project. Aluminum patio cover does look nice and the workman were friendly and efficient.

are creative, thoughtful, punctual, and thorough. At this point, they work unattended in our home and, when we get home it's like they were never there (except for the new paint!). The magnetic wall was a tricky project. Our son's "artwork" doesn't stick to the stainless fridge so we needed another solution. Not wanting something too obtrusive, we decided to ask Intrinsic about magnetic paint. They did all of the research, gave us the pros and cons, and made sure the project was a success. Now, we can hang up artwork in the kitchen all over the wall and, when we remove it, it goes back to just being a wall. While the instructions recommended three coats,

's research quickly showed that would be an unsatisfactory result. I really appreciate the extra time he took to look into possible problems BEFORE starting the work. Highly recommended.

The team of Painters' were professional and courteous.

kept me updated everyday via text msg on the status and progress of the job. Upon completion they did a complete walk around the house, made touch-ups and clean-ups without being requested to do so. I did final inspection with them and was very happy with their work. It was comfortable to have them around the house and I would recommend them highly.

and his crew washed and painted thje exterior of our house. Their work was very neat (I'm picky) and professional. They were all a pleasure to deal with. They were careful not the break or crush my plants around the house and didn't splatter paint on anything. After they finished painting, Mr.

asked me to inspect the work and any areas I pointed out were quickly touched up and I was allowed to re-inspect before they left the premises. I definitely recommend them for a professional job and will call them again when I have the inside painted.

they were on time. They were professional . They cleaned up after they painted. They repaired the walls with sanding and joint compound prior to painting . The walls look very professional. I will use them again , without the coupon . It looks very good.

came on a Saturday morning to remove an old stand up stall shower and replace it with a new one. I had ordered the shower online and
Starkville Exterior Painters Provider Name Locked
picked it up at the local home maintenance store.
He arrived on time and did everything he said he would do. Removed the old shower and replaced with the new one. When he removed the old shower he showed me why there was a problem to begin with. The previous owners did not provide adequet support under the shower stall base causing it to cave and pull away from the walls of the shower which lead to leaks.

went to the hardware store and bought the proper materials to repair the area that was not supported. He told me upfront that there would be a slight cost increase and if that was ok, I agreed and told
Starkville Exterior Painters Provider Name Locked
that I wanted the shower installed the correct way unlike the old shower was.
We felt so bad that the shower installation took
Starkville Exterior Painters Provider Name Locked
a lot longer than I think any of us anticipated, but he powered through and did the job right. He also cleaned up everything as promised. The shower looks great and we trust that it is installed the right way. I definitely am satisfied with the work and would hire again and recommend.

Very well, I was very impressed, but now to reschedule for this year, his number is "non-working". Please provide new contact details, out of 5 bids we received last year, he's the only one I'd want to work with. I don't want to give an F, rather an A for last years bid, but updated contact details is a must!
