Plastering, Painting - Interior

Dear Angie: How important is it to repair plaster before repainting? Our ceilings have peeling paint that we’re pretty sure was caused by past water damage. Since the water problem is no longer an issue, can we simply repaint the ceilings or should we first repair any underlying plaster damage? – Sara S., Elgin, Illinois

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! 

Interior Painting reviews in Willow Springs


We needed a painter following a kitchen/living room/laundry room renovation. We were given two recommendations from family/friends. The first company we consulted was so expensive, not to mention the guy who came to give us an estimate was so full of himself, I was turned off. The other company, I heard mixed things about and cancelled our consultation. I came here to Angie's list because I didn't know where else to go.

Based on the great reviews here, I contacted

. The owner,
Willow Springs Interior Painters Provider Name Locked
, came to my house, and I liked him immediately. He gave us a fair estimate (not including the cost of paint) and made me feel confident that his people would do a good job. He turned the job over to his son
Willow Springs Interior Painters Provider Name Locked
, and he his crew (
Willow Springs Interior Painters Provider Name Locked
Willow Springs Interior Painters Provider Name Locked
) showed up promptly on a Monday morning and got to work.They spent the first day prepping and the next two days painting. They were affable, professional and hard working. They worked a long day and were alone in the house most of the time. It was important to me that I could trust them to do their work and lock up afterwards.

The paint job looks terrific. My husband and I are very pleased. My sister was so impressed that she recommended them to a friend of hers. I am planning to (hopefully) do some more work in the near future and will definitely call

when it's time to paint.

- Frank D.

Everything went great! The painters all showed up on time and went to work with determination to complete the project in the time frame promised. The workmanship was excellent. They moved all furniture carefully and placed it back when they were finished. They worked a couple of long days with our approval to finish the project. They did a thorough inspection of the work done and was eager to touch up any area we felt needed it. A truly great experience.
- Toney C.

The 3 of them were great people. They were responsible people that kept a constant flow of work without goofing off. I was truly at their mercy to keep track of their own time and gave them their own key. My husband was in the hospital most of the time. It was great to feel so confident on their character when in need. I bought a BIG DEAL in order to get a cheaper rate for up to so many hours.

ended up giving me the cheaper rate for the project. I wish I had asked for an estimate. Instead, the cost was only based on the time
Willow Springs Interior Painters Provider Name Locked
kept to finish. As they worked in each room, they pointed out different things that needed added. There are good lines in the paint, no sloppy cross colors. The only complaints I would have would be that I am still finding paint I need to remove off of my floor tiles, windows, screens, tub, etc. from the splash. She had us do a walk through, but I was only looking at the painted surfaces. One of the doors painted over is bleeding through. Also, I have barely scratched the walls in three different rooms and the previous paint shines through. I'm not sure if that is due to bad priming, not enough coats or crappy paint on my part.
- Diane D.

I bought a deal from Angie's List from
Willow Springs Interior Painters Provider Name Locked
. I needed my guest room painted. It was orange, I needed it to be blue. The owner was very responsive and always answered my call or called back right away. The "B" in Professionalism is because they had to keep rescheduling me. We had it scheduled two separate times and each of those, they called later in the day to say they were still working on another job and wouldn't be able to make it that day after all. Both times, I had rescheduled appointments to be home, and ended up not needing to be. They did keep the 3rd appointment and did the job. The job was done well and relatively quickly. I did end up owing more money (about $50) because there were two painters. That was probably in the fine print of the "big deal" that I just didn't read. Still was a good value for an entire room done well.
- Krista D.

The workmanship, professionalism and responsiveness was first class. I was very pleased and would recommend this company and their workers. Totally satisfied!

It went fine. There was good communication about when the crew would arrive and finish, and what they'd be able to accomplish in the time allowed. The painter was very professional and pleasant to work with. He did a good job and cleaned up everything as he went. I will call this company again when it is time to paint the next room.
- mary S.

I have had custom painters before, but the attention to detail, the professionalism with
Willow Springs Interior Painters Provider Name Locked
and his team, and the craftsmanship of their work, for exceeded our expectation. When people visit our home they rave about what a great job these have done. They completed transformed the like and feel of our new home.
You can best believe once the new furniture get in they will be painting our bedrooms as well and next summer they will be doing some touch up paint on the exterior of my home as well.
You cannot go wrong with these at all.

and his team were very professional, punctual and friendly. Their attention to detail was superb, while still being efficient in getting the job done. My wife and I were very pleased with the results and would hire them again in the future.
