"The worker did a great job of matching the textured walls and painted to match the existing wall. You can't see where the work was done.

-Richard F.

"She had estimated the work would take a couple of weeks and that was right. They showed up on time and were respectful about the dogs in the yard and the landscaping."
sometimes takes a few days to respond to email but she treats her team well and they are very loyal to her. We wanted to use Metro paint for part of the job - some painters don't like to work with Metro but we've used it before on a house and it holds up very well. She didn't have a problem using Metro for the trim and a paint store paint for the body.

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!

House Painting reviews in Reno

Quality Craft did a complete kitchen remodel for me and also remodeled a guest bath. It included new cabinets, appliances, countertops, flooring, painting, new mouldings and doors, new bathroom fixtures, tile work, some electrical and some plumbing, plus some other minor work. I was very happy with the results and the work ethic of the guys who did the work and they were very courteous, clean & professional. The electrician & plumber were licensed subcontractors and were good guys to deal with. The prices were better than anyone else who I felt comfortable with. I could've gotten some jackleg contractors to do it for less money, but I wanted it done right by a licensed builder since that is required by state law for a job this size and somebody who had good references. The cost of the job was over $24,000 and it was worth every penny as I have what feels like a new home now.

I was extremely pleased with the work performed by
Reno Exterior Painters Provider Name Locked
. The new paint job in the bedrooms is absolutely beautiful and the walls look flawless. The owner of
Reno Exterior Painters Provider Name Locked
was extremely helpful in assisting in the selection of the colors and came up with the suggestion to add chair rails in the hallway. What a big difference this has made. As far as the hardwood floors, I am just as pleased. The floors look better than what I had expected as the new floors were matched to existing hardwood floors in other rooms.
In addition to the high quality work, the workers were extremely polite & professional and took care in cleaning up the work area at the close of each day. I was also impressed with the job being completed within the time frame we agreed and with minimum disruption to my day to day life as I work from home.

Very prompt and showed up exactly when he said he would. He had quoted me $175 over the phone. Showed up did the work and then went to collect from my wife since I wasn't home. He told her the bill was $250. She second guessed him since I had told her it would be $175 and he said okay that was right. I came back to inspect the work after they had left and some spots looked really good and one spot still had a

JP and his crew were right on time despite appalling weather.
Stairwell is 16 ft at it's highest point, and so prepping involved removing previously-installed wall anchors and repairing holes at about 14 ft.
Both the ceilings and the stairwell required a few coats, but they continued till the job was completed to the highest standards....More /> In short they were punctual, efficient, effective and quite frankly I barely noticed that they were in my house until they were leaving after completing the work.
Not only would I recommend them but I will personally be using

THE ICE AND SNOW REMOVAL FROM THE FRONT ROOF WAS COMPLEMENTARY BECAUSE THEY HAD WORKED ON MY FRONT PORCH LATE SUMMER AND I WAS HAVING ISSUES FROM THE SNOW AND ICE ON THE PORCH ROOF. THE LEAKING ISSUES ON THE CEILING OF MY FRONT PORCH, HAD NOTHING TO DO WITH THEIR WORK. I HAVE AN OLD COTTAGE STYLE HOME AND WANTED MY FRONT PORCH SCREENED IN. ALL THE OLD RAILINGS FRAMING MY PORCH AND FRONT RAILINGS AND STEPS WERE REMOVED AND BUILT BRAND NEW. THE CEDAR FLOORING WAS SANDED AND STAINED ALONG WITH PAINTING AND OTHER SANDING. A MOST EXCELLANT JOB. THE VARIOUS ROOFS ON THE BACK SIDE OF MY HOUSE WERE FAR THICKER, THOU NOT CAUSING ANY LEAKING, NEEDED TO BE REMOVED. THEY DID AN EXCELLANT JOB AND CLEARED AWAY ALL THE SNOW AND ICE FROM MY BACK DECK AS IT CAME FROM THE ROOF.
