"It was not an easy task, the large room in the bungalow was in rough shape and he was very polite while fixing my prep work and preparing the surfaces. Extremely" quick to move on to the second room which was new roughed in surfaces. He added the back hall and two closets which was more than I expected for a days work. Very hard worker, cleaned up and made sure I was satified with the job. I would recommend him highly.

"I am very picky about who I refer, but I am beyond satisfied and can recommend
without any reservations whatsoever, for these reasons: 1." Their prices are highly competitive and very fair. 2. They are highly skilled and very talented painters who understand a variety of applications (certainly wood and sheetrock, but other materials also). 3. They are highly professional. If they see something that needs to be done, they'll have a conversation with you about why it should be done. They do not nickel and dime you over little things. Pride in their end product is more important to them than money. 4. They are highly communicative. They will regularly communicate with you about the schedule, and about the progress being made. We received daily updates and even pictures throughout the process. 5. They are timely and will be on the job without changes or excuses. 6. They are honest and trustworthy. Their integrity is impeccable. 7. They are friendly and helpful. If they can do something to help you out, they're on it. The value associated with using the professionals at
is beyond outstanding. Any home or building owner would benefit by using their services -- you'll get the best work you could ever imagine for a very fair price. What's not to love about that?

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.

came out to our property to inspect our home and give us a quote. He identified a few issues with the previous paint job and what need to be done to correct it.
Once we discussed price and time for the job we went forward. His guys did a great job, no mess and on time. Everything went according to plan and the interior looked beautiful. Could not be happier with the outcome, looking forward to using them for my next project.

Because of too much weight in the closet, clothes rack pulled about 6 feet of sheet rock from wall.
Old Forge Exterior Painters Provider Name Locked
repaired the sheetrock, mudded and fixed it so it looks new. I had him forgo sand and painting because another portion of the closet still had clothes hanging up. Being a closet with clothes this was a nonissue. He installed about six feet of horizontal 2 x 4 to existing structure. He then mounted an additional 2 brackets (3 total) to ensure stability. All done professionally. His price was extremely modest and reasonable for the service performed. He works in the northwest Florida area. I was so impressed with his work and cost I have lined up two more projects for him to do as he has time to fit them in. I highly recommend this personable and professional handyman.

We were on a tight time line to get the rooms painted, but
Old Forge Exterior Painters Provider Name Locked
was flexible and got the job done in time. However, about 3 or 4 days after they completed the job, the ceiling in one of the rooms already started peeling. With the craziness of moving, it took me a few weeks to call them about it. Once I did, they were professional in resolving the situation in a timely manner, even though it took 1 guy 2 days of work to sort it out.
The rest of the work they did was OK -- not great. I wouldn't say their work is excellent, but it's not terrible either. However, for the price, I would have expected better.

We met

at the San
Old Forge Exterior Painters Provider Name Locked
Home Show and asked for an estimate to redo our interior doors a light natural color.
Old Forge Exterior Painters Provider Name Locked
came to the house a week later took pictures of the doors and brought a sample of the finished work. We agreed to have the work done and scheduled for a week later when
Old Forge Exterior Painters Provider Name Locked
would be available.
Old Forge Exterior Painters Provider Name Locked
showed up on time and with an example of how our dark doors would look after the process. He started that same day, first priming all the doors a very light color. He worked for 4-1/2 days putting an oil glaze in a natural hue over the primer. We love the look of the doors. They retained the wood grain.
Old Forge Exterior Painters Provider Name Locked
had to repair a couple of doors, and he helped replace the doorknobs where we had difficulty. He repainted the wall paint in a couple of places where his tape removed the paint, so the wall looks like new. In one case he even went out and bought paint - matching the color.
The cost was exactly what was estimated. We paid by credit card, for a small extra charge. But could have paid by check for the exact estimate.
We are very happy with the look of the doors, and especially pleased we didn't have to add to the landfill to get "new" doors.
We realize
Old Forge Exterior Painters Provider Name Locked
usually works on exterior doors, but in our case the process worked well for our interior doors. It is best to have this work done when fans are available to provide ventilation. The final phase is a bit smelly, but we were able to close windows, lock doors and turn off fans in the evening.

and
Old Forge Exterior Painters Provider Name Locked
did a fantastic job and saved my life by being a reliable painter. I had hired another contractor to complete work I needed on a deadline. The other painter just up and left (without his tools or paint) leaving me in a dreadful situation.
Old Forge Exterior Painters Provider Name Locked
came to my rescue and was able to change his scheduled job so he could get to mine by the next morning and have that work completed within the timeframe I had. I was so happy with their work and professionalism that I decided to add all the rest of my rooms. What a big difference. I had chosen 2 colors and when I saw an example of them together I hated it.
Old Forge Exterior Painters Provider Name Locked
guided me with new color choices and was patient with me and my mistake. He helped me pick a contrasting color which I am so please with. All I can say is
Old Forge Exterior Painters Provider Name Locked
was a joy to work with, is very conscientious, and a perfectionist at his work. I was astounded at how low his price was. I mistakenly chosen the cheapest quote and the guy just quit.
Old Forge Exterior Painters Provider Name Locked
came in and fixed everything. Just goes to show you get what you pay for!! I would recommend
Old Forge Exterior Painters Provider Name Locked
to anyone wanting quality service at extraordinary prices.

We purchased a 4-hour painting offer for $99. I specifically asked
Old Forge Exterior Painters Provider Name Locked
to start of the top on my 3-story home and work his way down as we did not have access to a tall ladder. When I returned home, I saw that he did not start at the top as requested and did a very spotty job at best. When I asked him the next day why the job was not completed as requested, he replied that he did not have a ladder tall enough. He also stated when he ran out of his four hours of time, he left the project. I was out of town for part of the day when he was painting, but accessible by phone to discuss any issues that he may have been having. When asked what I should do to get the project completed, he told me to get a tall ladder and finish it.
He was extremely unprofessional in the way he responded to my obvious disappointment with the project. A little communication and professionalism could have saved this project. I have found someone else to complete the job.
As the photo shows, the project was a real eyesore.
