"I did not use their service as the quote came in too high. I purchased a $199 coupon thinking my tiny front porch would be covered under this price. but turns out that there were" extras for the stairs and sanding. The quote came in way too different from the $199 price. thus i ended up just cancelling the coupon.

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.

The work was done over about a three week period. It went pretty smoothly. All the work looks great, and seems well done. The master carpenter,
Old Forge Exterior Painters Provider Name Locked
, did very nice work on the front porch, retaining wall/steps, and fence.
There were a couple of minor spots where they had to come back and touch up the trim paint around a window, which they did promptly when I pointed it out. There was minor damage to some bushes around the house, which is understandable since the bushes were badly overgrown. They did a pretty good job of cleaning up after themselves and pressure-washed the concrete driveway.

Set an appointment and they never showed up. If they did and I wasn't there (I was there at the appointed time), they didn't leave a note or call. Unacceptable with all the communication we have nowadays.

This was a long process as I needed to get the design approved by my
Old Forge Exterior Painters Provider Name Locked
. Following approval I worked with Nkosi Brown and
Old Forge Exterior Painters Provider Name Locked
to figure out which color scheme and railing system to use. After all that was done, they sent out an incredible crew that worked all weekend long demolishing my old deck, replacing or reinforcing the deck supports, replacing it with composite material, putting up a cable railing system. They even worked to replace a couple pieces of trim that were displaced by the old deck. Even better, they sanded the top rail and painted it with matching color to my house trim! The excellence is in the details! My new deck looks better than I had imagined.

The job went great. We first got a quote from another vendor and they wanted me to supply the custom stain color (which we no longer had and couldn't contact the original painter who did it to get the color). Additionally, their quote was TWICE what
Old Forge Exterior Painters Provider Name Locked
Paint & Roofing quoted me! Needless to say, we didn't use them. Then we called
Old Forge Exterior Painters Provider Name Locked
Paint & Roofing. These guys were prompt, courteous, and professional. They did a great job refinishing all the wood and matched the custom stain color perfectly. They told me when some of the water stains and/or scratches might not come out completely and I appreciated the honesty. However, the water stains are barely noticeable. They really made everything look like new again. We encountered 2 issues, and both were promptly and professionally handled. One, was that one of the workers said that they would return the next morning, and he didn't. I did have to call, but when they called me back, they were very apologetic and immediately got someone else to come later that day and were trying to put another team together to finish the job on time, which it was. The other issue was that one screen got damaged when they removed the protective covering, but they took care of it right away and got it fixed. I would definitely recommend

was on site with his team and they completed the job in a timely manner. They changed colors when I saw the original color was not to my liking and made sure I was happy with the new choice before moving forward.

went beyond painting the house to include caulking in areas that were failing. I was pleased with their work and the job they did.
