took care of everything. He purchased the paint in the colors that I chose, stripped the wallpaper and prepped the walls for painting. " All of the wall imperfections were fixed and the painting looked marvelous. He finished ahead of schedule. I am very pleased with all aspects of the service and will definitely hire him again.

"It was quite a job as the house hadn't been painted in at least 20 years. Lots of peeling paint in the soffits, carport and add on laundry shed. They did" a great job scraping, treating it, priming and painting. It looks like new. They were very patient and helpful with my indecision in picking the color. They also left it all very neat and clean. I highly recommend them

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!

' team had a fair quote, and did very clean work. Their team showed up on time, and followed the plan agreed to, although we had to remind them about the trenching around the house. The painting performed looks better than we expected. We have had several complements on the job! I wouldn't hesitate to use

In September, 2014, we contracted with Reliable to make some repairs to the living room and kitchen ceiling and also to do some minor remodeling of the kitchen including all new recessed lighting. We are very pleased with the results. The workers did wonderful work in all aspects of the total job. They were courteous, cooperative, and hard working. They finished the job in a timely and professional manner. During the estimate phase we found
Burns Exterior Painters Provider Name Locked
to be very patient and listened carefully with our concerns. We did not feel rushed and we felt we received a fair estimate. In fact we said we would shop around after his estimate and he said no problem and waited patiently for us to get back to him which was a couple of weeks. We would definitely hire the company again for other projects around our home.

I thought that

Just prior to him completing the job, the paint started bubbling. He and his employee didn’t quite understand why this was happening and neither did we so he took his lunch and came back and attempted to scrape and re-prime the bubbled areas. There were only isolated bubbled areas. 95% of the house was just fine but these bubbles surfaced in approximate four (4) relatively small area. 78% of the house has cracks where the boards join together.
In the spring, it appeared that the caulking or whatever he used to seal the joints on the house exterior cracked open. We called
Burns Exterior Painters Provider Name Locked
and asked him to come and give us an estimate on painting our decks and at the same time he could repair the bubbled areas and fix the cracks. He came and provided the estimate and from that point on he would never answer our calls and refused our return receipt mail.

It went really well!
Burns Exterior Painters Provider Name Locked
helped us pick out a couple different color options and we loved what we ended up with! Also, work was done REALLY fast and price was pretty comparable to other quotes we received. We also have them lined up to do our entire exterior this spring. Price for that was very reasonable compared to other quotes we received with the Angie's List discount!

has a great eye for color and what will look good. They also let you see a couple samples up first before you decide on one, which is really nice for indecisive people like myself. They cleaned up and never left a mess inside our house while the job was going on.

This was one of the best experiences I have ever had with a contractor.
Burns Exterior Painters Provider Name Locked
discussed thoroughly what needed to be done. He made a wonderful suggestion to replace the front columns with fiberglass to get rid of wood rot permanently. He quoted a fair price and the invoice was exactly the same as the quote. His crews (both carpentry & painting) were courteous and very professional. They completed the work in a timely fashion, which was no small challenge with the inclement weather we have had. Their clean up was impeccable as well. I highly recommend
