"
of Certa Pro painters is extremely professional. He responds very promptly, gives (as requested by me) a very detailed estimate of the" work to be done. I was not in in
at the time so it was important to me to know everything down to the number of drop cloths they were going to use;
complied with all my questions with courtesy and patience. I needed to get my house ready to sell as quickly as possible and
was the only one of many painters who could get the crew to work within days. The crew boss was named
(ask for him, he was very good and particular about the work he does) and he called me every day to give a progress report. They did everything agreed upon and even added kitchen retouch and finished on time and did a very good job.

"We had all of the trim on our home replaced late September 2014 and were trying to get the entire exterior painted before winter. We obtained 4-5 estimates. The" initial meeting with
went very well. He had a prepared, inclusive presentation--photos and reviews from previous customers. He provided and reviewed a detailed estimate that same day. We were impressed by his professionalism and knowledge of the painting business. While his quote was one of the higher ones, we eagerly signed with
. "You get what you pay for" doesn't always apply, but it most definitely did in this case. This was the second time we've had our house painted in the last 6 years. While the first company was considerably less expensive, the quality wasn't even close to what
provided. When it comes to price, make sure you're comparing apples to apples. Other companies quotes may be a bit lower, but really look at the details of the estimate. Such as the brand and 'performance level' of the paint they'll be using. Cheaper product may increase the frequency of re-painting--which means you'll end up paying more in the long run. Different paint makes a BIG difference, so make sure to check! We were concerned about painting that late in the year and
agreed it was best to hold off until spring. He could have easily done the work at that time, but knew the conditions were less than optimal. He takes pride in his work and doesn't cut corners to make money his top priority. He started our job in May of 2015
provided a free color consultation.
was wonderful to work with and really helped us make the final decision. We had been struggling to decide whether to paint the trim white or cream. We had multiple shades and they offered to paint all of the colors on one of the windows to help us decide. They went above and beyond during the entire job. Their attention to detail was astounding! They painted the utility boxes on the side of the house, removed stray nails and even removed (not taped) the light sconces to paint the trim behind them. They didn't cut corners when it came to the prep work either. We were very concerned because we had a brand new paver walkway and landscaping installed along the side of our house. They thoroughly covered every inch of our pavers and plants. Not one drop of paint, not one broken twig! Outstanding! They don't just paint! Hence their phrase, "Bringing Value Beyond the Brush".
was pleasantly accommodating when we added on a few items, including cleaning the exterior of the 2nd level windows.
and his crew were dependable and punctual. He was on the jobsite every day and had great communication skills. Spring weather being highly unpredictable, he always kept us informed of any delays. Easily reached, he provided his email and cell phone number. Finally, he wouldn't take one dime of payment until EVERYTHING was met with our approval! He is clearly focused on the customer and will continue to flourish in his business. We HIGHLY recommend
and his crew!

Life seems to pass by more quickly these days. It feels like every time I turn around, I find something that needs to be fixed, maintained or replaced.

The EPA requires all contractors disturbing a certain amount of paint in pre-1978 homes to follow these safety rules. Make sure they're following every step.

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!

Arrived promptly to estimate. Followed up with confirmed price. Brought contract. Estimated three days, ran over by half a day, for same price. Did an excellent job painting. Were careful and courteous. At end of job a supervisor came for a walk-through to assure everything was to our satisfaction. We were very pleased with the job and would use them again and recommend them.

painted all the walls in our condo -beautiful neutral colors. He decorated our lower level, and applied some additional much-needed finishing.

"Excellent Plus" in two words.
The professionalism of

) were just great. Efficient, courteous, enthusiastic, neat, on-time, responsive to small details, and easy to work with also come to mind.
We were especially amazed how they brought back to life our kitchen and bathroom wood cabinetry that had been badly water damaged. We though it was a lost cause, but they somehow managed to make it look like new with no evidence of any of the original discoloration and mess.
There's a reason why these guys get a high rating on Angie's list. They exceed their advertising. In order for things to go this smoothly on the customer end, you'd better believe that these guys are workin' double-time to make it feel that way...
Trust me on this one.

Miss communication......He did call back, make an appointment and showed up. However, I thought I scheduled for work to be done and when he came, he said he was only there to 'give' estimate. I thought I had gone over what I needed on phone but when he got here he thought he was doing a bigger job that needed an estimate. He left and didn't fix anything. My problem ended up resolving itself so don't need him now. Just make sure you are clear what he is coming for. Can't really review his work.

we've used Advanced Paint twice now over the last few years and

and his team painted the entire exterior of our house and it looks great. We went with a very dark blue color painted over a light stain, which is not the easiest paint job, but they did a great job.

also replaced many old cedar boards (damaged by rot and wood peckers) and feathered them in beautifully. We will definitely use Advance Painting again in the future.

brings a large team of South American immigrants. That alone is not a problem. They work very hard and get the job done very quickly. However you might want to check if they are documented. When
Cobleskill Exterior Painters Provider Name Locked
originally completed the paint job on my home in only three days I was very pleased. However a paint job should last 7-10 years and now, only three years later, paint is beginning to chip and peel and the caulking has dried up and cracked around a couple of windows. I called him twice to ask him to touch these areas up, but he has not returned any of my calls. He dos not stand behind his work. He in not inexpensive.
