"The first time, we ended up choosing a cheaper company because quality was not a concern. Quality most certainly IS a concern with our new home, and we will be using"
once we are ready to paint later in 2015. Each time we have interacted with anyone at the company, perfect professionalism and excellent knowledge were what we have encountered. Their services come so highly recommended by others, and our interactions have been so wonderful, the choice is easy, really. But we did learn that you have to get in their schedule early - they are so good, they book up!

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.

You may prefer the lived-in look, but a hole in the wall makes your home look a little too lived in. A pro tells how to repair a hole yourself and save money.

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.

I had bought the discounted rate offered through Angie's list of $249 for 8 hours. They arrived a few minutes before 8am (our scheduled time) and were very professional.

's worker was quiet and worked like a dog - only taking a lunch break. He was here about 30 minutes longer than the 8 hours so I wanted to make sure he got paid for all of his time. I wanted to tip him as well so I had

charge me for the full hour. That plus the painting supplies added $83 more to my total bill. I feel like it was a total bargain, given it would have taken me 2 days to get it done and it wouldn't look nearly as nice.

. The work of painting the church sanctuary was both professionally done and done well. They went "above and beyond" to make sure the job was done right and done well. We found them to be honest, to have integrity and to complete the job in a timely fashion. We love the painting that was done. I would highly recommend

and his assistant,

wanted to have excellent quality work, so he was meticulous in his work. They hung plastic sheeting to minimize the mess when there was more construction dust, etc to contain. They cleaned up quite thoroughly when they were done. The job looks perfect and we are pleased!
Athens Interior Painters Provider Name Locked
also helped with a few small tasks for which I needed help and was gracious about helping me out! I appreciate his willingness to not only do a good job for what he was hired to do, but to be helpful and kind.
We are considering other projects and I will certainly call

The crew works hard and is easy to work with. It helps to know some Spanish as many of them have only partial English skills, but between them all, communication is fine. They work well and fix quickly whatever hasn't quite turned out right. I have probably used Servando's crew for about 20 different projects at my old house, my new house and my rental house.

When we called to request an estimate, we were informed first that the company was booked up for the next 2-3 months, but if we were willing to wait, then someone would be out the next day. We agreed, and the next day,

came out to meet with us. We walked around the house and I explained what we wanted to have done,
Athens Interior Painters Provider Name Locked
listened, made suggestions and priced the job. We called the company a couple of days later to schedule the work.

On the appointed day, we found a note on our front door. Instead of calling or texting us, Nick had come out in person to inform us that the worker who was to have started our job had called off due to a family emergency, but would be out the following day. That extra little touch was the start of one of the best experiences we've ever had. The prep work was thorough, and above and beyond the scope of the job. The house exterior was cleaned, repairs made as needed, and painted as was agreed to. If Nick didn't like the way a certain section looked, it was redone and another coat of paint was applied. Each day, the area was tidied up, and the equipment stored neatly out of the way. After the job was completed, we found many extras had been performed such as replacing a small section of rain gutter. The final price was the amount of the estimate.

This company had been highly recommended by neighbors, and we will add our recommendations as well. Pride in workmanship, willingness to go the extra step, and overall professionalism are the hallmarks of this company, and we wouldn't hesitate to hire them again.

We found Maryan Shutko and his crew to be professional, accomplished and friendly. His system for estimating is detailed, any updates are done promptly through email. He was flexible and accommodating to our calendar. (He made sure our living and dining rooms were done in time for Christmas Eve). We were impressed with how much care was taken with prep work. It meant that once the paint was on, the surface was smooth and perfect. Good craftsmanship is a source of pride for all of them. Any pieces of furniture that needed to be moved was done by the crew and replaced when the room was finished. While his prices could be said to be at the high end of the scale, with

We hired Innovative to remove wall paper from one bathroom and bedroom, and then paint a 2 bedroom 2 bath apartment. They showed up on time for the estimate and provided an extremely competitive bid. They then showed up on time as scheduled and completed the work in two days, the exact time frame they told us. The job was expertly done and the painters were professional and courteous. I would certainly use them again and recommend them with no reservations.

was very quick to respond to my initial inquiry and availability.
We had an initial call to discuss the job, room size and any extra costs - due to room height.
We scheduled later in the month, and he was good about confirmation by email, as well as a reminder the day before.
Athens Interior Painters Provider Name Locked
was very punctual -- arriving a few minutes before 7 am to start.
The only disconnect we had was on the wall surface prep -- which if I were painting myself, I would I normally wash prior to painting due to dust and dirt on the walls. Turns out this isn't something
Athens Interior Painters Provider Name Locked
normally does, but he was OK with doing it.
The paint job was very good -- with good attention to detail around trim and crown molding.
Overall, we're quite pleased and found

to be very friendly, courteous and professional.
