"They did an excellent job of prepping before and clean-up afterwards. I purchased the Angie's Deal so I could try out his services. And so glad I did! He is" providing an estimate for more work.

"
has been wonderful every step of the way. We met him back in September when he came out to give us a bid on painting our entire house. " We ended up going with someone else (a mistake on our part), but kept his contact information. We ended up asking the other company NOT to do our front door, and hired
to come take care of that for us. He is super responsive to phone calls and e-mails, he answered questions along the way, was very punctual, and an all around nice guy. He and his foreman were friendly, cleaned up every bit of mess that was made during the project, and the door and sidelights look amazing! Thank you for giving me back the beautiful front door I've been missing!

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.

is far more than I expected. Very professional, courteous, helped move furniture as well as put it back in place-witch I did not expect him to do. He made no mess, cleaned up after painting, and helped me put the rooms back together. It was an experience beyond what I expected as I have always done my own painting. Without hesitation I would use

I contacted several Angieslist-rated painting companies to solicited bids on painting the exterior of my home and repairing or replacing my gutters.
Tunkhannock Exterior Painters Provider Name Locked
and Gutters was one of the companies contacted. I had used
Tunkhannock Exterior Painters Provider Name Locked
in the past to do the same exterior work and was most pleased with the work.

I made an appointment for a representative to come out and assess what needed to be done and provide a quote.
Tunkhannock Exterior Painters Provider Name Locked
was assigned and showed up right on time.
Tunkhannock Exterior Painters Provider Name Locked
did a great job of assessing what needed to be done and offering me some alternatives which he priced out. The cost estimates were most exacting which I greatly appreciated. To get
Tunkhannock Exterior Painters Provider Name Locked
's standard 3-year warranty I would have to go with the most expensive alternative which involved the replacement of a lot of wood. Admittedly the fascia and soffits were in bad shape and could warrant replacing but I was not ready to go that direction and felt that a lot of scraping and priming would provide an adequate job. I opted not to go this route. The alternative of just scraping, priming and painting the exterior which was my preferred choice was also expensive compared to other bids I received. Similarly, the bid to replace the gutters (which was
Tunkhannock Exterior Painters Provider Name Locked
's recommendation) was also higher than other bids I received so I did not choose
Tunkhannock Exterior Painters Provider Name Locked
for this work either. I am still convinced that
Tunkhannock Exterior Painters Provider Name Locked
would do a top notch job on exterior painting or gutter work but it comes with a significant cost. There are other alternatives that do just as good of work at a lower cost.

was great. When he came by to take a look at my house he provided some really good advice about colors to use. He made me rethink a couple of things and I am glad I did. His crew was fantastic. They were in my house for 6 days and were very professional and courteous. I even changed my mind about a color late on a Friday night and they were there first thing Saturday morning with the right color. I am extremely happy with the end result and will definitely call

assured me he would be present through the entire job and he stayed true to his word. Despite intermittently rainy weather during the painting job he still managed to finish on schedule without sacrificing quality. His crew was professional and courteousy and did a wonderful job. After the painting was completed we all did a walk-around of the house and
