"From bid to completion all went superbly. Price was far below competitors but quality of paint was the same and I can't imagine how the quality of the work" could have been better. The crews were friendly and genuinely seemed to enjoy their work.

"At first I was apprehensive at using Angie's List for hiring a painting crew, we all know that online services can promise everything and deliver nothing. With" that said, I wholeheartedly endorse and will only use
. for any property in the future. I called the listed number and instantly a real-live person picked up and said the owner, Mr.
, could be at my house to give an estimate within the hour. I later learned that they have 16 independent crews, and for the owner to show up within the hour is unheard of. He is very prompt and professional, and while he may not be the cheapest painter in town, it will come back to you in spades. We worked with one of his sixteen crew leaders,
, and in the end we just want to take them all out to dinner and say thanks. In the past we have had very shady painting crews execute extremely poor results. Mr.
quoted us one flat rate (on the same day he visited our home). At first we thought it was a bit pricey, but we didn't expect was that within this rate, no matter what calamities may occur, he will help. These are the main reason why YOU should hire
: 1. TRUSTWORTHY- we have many valuable objects in our house and a dog. From day one, we felt extremely comfortable with the crew and even gave
a key to access our house when needed. 2. ATTENTION TO DETAIL: Their's is something we have never seen after painting this house four times. 3. COMMUNICATION- The crew was always there when needed and always unobtrusive. They even took their own trash and threw it away somewhere else, they never used our bathroom and never complained about lack of parking. Every time they entered our house, they removed their shoes (even the owner) and placed surgical booties on to make sure they didn't track any dirt in our home. 4. ABOVE AND BEYOND- We hired them to paint our house on the exterior. They took the ball and ran with it. They would go to Home Depot and get new paint samples if we requested, fixed our leaking faucets, were at our house to guide the plumbers, mold inspectors, and even AC repair men when we weren't even there.
even entertained our dog while we were at work. Furthermore,
would come back, unpaid, to make sure the quality of the OTHER hired contractor's work was up to snuff. 5. OVERALL- There is a reason why Angie's List rates
. as NUMBER 1 in Los
. You will feel confident that this is the best paint job you will ever witness . DISCLAIMER- I never have reviewed anyone on Angie's List on a contractor's quality of service. I took the time to review not only on Angie's but Yelp and wrote a personal thank you letter (Mr.
will show you many laminated handwritten testimonials from the powerful and wealthy in Los
). If you need a reference, we were not hired to write this review, email us, and we can chat as we believe service of this caliber is rare. Well done, Mr.
,
and crew.

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. 
?
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!

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.

?
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!

As soon as I purchased the coupon deal on Angies List,
North Exterior Painters Provider Name Locked
was in touch with me to set up the painting date. I was able to use two colors of my choice of premium

paint for the body and trim. The painters arrived early in the morning on the date chosen and got to work. They were both very friendly and in my opinion extremely talented painters. I had hoped that they would patch the major holes and cracks in the stucco, but they did even more than that, priming the severely weathered wood trim and patching the cracks on the foundation of the house. They also moved the furniture off my patio and put it back when they were done. The

They did a great job and pointed out trouble spots I needed to attend to. I hadn't thought of painting metal railings in front of house, but was needed and they pointed that out. They were willing to replace some wood on deck stairs so I wouldn't have to try to find someone else. I felt the price was reasonable for all they did.
