did a lot of work for me over the years. Great team, very professional, they're usually done in 1 or 2 days, and the qualtiy" is awesome! Their website pittsburghpropainters.com has all the prices listed already, making it really easy to see how much everything was going to cost.

"HIGHLY RECOMMENDED! I contacted
and made an appointment for him to look at the house. He showed up on time and was very knowledgeable" about the type of paint to use, the chalking of our current paint, etc. He answered all of our questions quickly and with our best interests in mind. For example, he explained that our paint was chalking slightly and that we might want to use a sealer. It wasn't much of an additional cost and so we decided to do so. I immediately felt very comfortable hiring him to paint our home. The estimate came promptly, we accepted and his team was here within 2 weeks on the date scheduled. They were professional, friendly and worked very hard. I am a handyman and like to do things on my own. Thus, it's difficult to trust others to do work on my home. However, I must say that
and his team at
did an ABSOLUTELY FANTASTIC JOB! I can not be happier with their work and I will always recommend them to anyone needing paint work done to their home. We get many compliments and to be honest, I continue to admire the work they've done. I have yet to see a flaw -- They really did beautiful work!

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.

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.

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!

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.

?
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!

and his wife did an excellent job of preparation and painting throughout the house. They were always prompt and always kept us informed during a couple ice and snow related delays. They gave us a prompt and accurate written estimate of our original request. As they proceeded, we added additional items, which they worked in nicely, again with written estimates on each addition. We were very pleased with their work, their work ethics, pleasant attitudes and trustworthiness. We will not hesitate to use them in the future and will recommend them to anyone asking for good painters.

I called
Portales Interior Painters Provider Name Locked
to obtain an estimate for interior painting. He was available rather quickly - as in "now" - to come to my home, which is very unusual in this area - typically you need to schedule contracting estimates several days out. We went through my home and I pointed out the areas that needed painting. He said he would contact me with the estimate and it is over a week later and I have not heard from him. I feel as though he wasted my time. He used my bathroom, which I really didn't like - he could have gone somewhere before he stopped here.

The two painters arrived on time and worked diligently at the difficult task of patching holes, taping and mudding the ceiling. They painted the areas that needed to be painted. They were a bit pressed for time, and to their credit, they were trying to get done everything that I asked them to do. Although they put down dropclothes, they did leave a few paint drops behind, but I was able to clean these up easily and am thankful that they focused on getting the work done. I look forward to using this company again.

They were able to handle all the work "in house," which was a big savings in time and expense. They kept to the timetable they indicated, which was quite reasonable. When problems were brought to their attention, they handled them expeditiously and well, and when an item proved to be too expensive were happy to leave it out.
