"Overall, the project when well. There were some weather issues that had to be worked around.
was very easy to work with when rescheduling." In Oct/Nov the weather starts to get cold and the paint doesn't stick to the siding very well. I thought 3 guys painting for 8 hours each would be able to paint a house, but they got the house painted and painted the trim around the 2nd story windows. I was able to finish the rest of the trim myself. The house looks great!

-T T.

"We had windows and stucco repaired on the front of our house and needed areas that had been disturbed to be painted but also wanted the entire house to be caulked," repaired and painted instead of just some areas so we don't have to worry about it later. Our home is a rather large 2 story with a walkout basement.
came out to give us a quote, he looked over our house and was very honest on what he felt we needed and most importantly didn't need to do. Our home had been painted in the fairly recent past and wasn't really needing a full paint job as it was still in good shape and
did suggest to save money just doing the areas of concern or that needed it. I really appreciated him not trying to up-sell us on anything that we didn't need. He gave us several paint options at different price points as well. He called a week later to follow up and see if we had any more questions. They were not the cheapest but they were not far off and I felt they were the best choice. We scheduled the job knowing that we were having some more windows done prior to needing to have the house painted, they were flexible on the scheduling. They originally put us on their books later in the Summer to hold the spot but moved us up once they knew we were ready. The crew was wonderful. The guys were friendly, respectful not only of us and our property and almost every day we walked around to see if there were any concerns or questions. They corrected any and all concerns we had. They stayed late and arrived early to get the job done in the time we were told to expect them to have the job done. If we need any other painting they will get our business for sure!

Life seems to pass by more quickly these days. It feels like every time I turn around, I find something that needs to be fixed, maintained or replaced.

Quality materials and proper application can make all the difference when it comes so staining your fence.

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.


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.

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! 
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! 

House Painting reviews in Gatlinburg



The same two painters did the entire job over a one week period. They were polite and explained everything in advance. They were the more expensive of the quotes I received and I chose them because a) the home I bought had been neglected on the exterior and was damaged from the elements, b) the owner went above my expectations and took an interest in making sure the job was done right, & c) this company gives back to the communitiy, nationally and internationally, which seems to be a rare thing these days.

checked with me on how it was going and encouraged feedback. My painters,
Gatlinburg Exterior Painters Provider Name Locked
Gatlinburg Exterior Painters Provider Name Locked
, were always happy to redo something, discuss options, anything they could do to make me happy.While they were quite young for experienced painters, i was pleased in the end with their work. My windows are very old and some debatingly ready for replacement; they put ALOT of time and effort working on them. When I wasn't entirely pleased with the results, they kept coming back until I was happy. Always gracious and pleasant. They cleaned up every day, watched the weather constantly to make sure they weren't painting just before the rain hit. My home is in MUCH better shape now and well protected from the elements that had damaged it before I bought it. One window was too damaged and repaired too many times; they pointed that out as I would not have recognized that. I felt comfortable leaving my home open and unlocked when I needed to leave as I felt they were trustworthy. I also found the paint color assistance before the job was started very helpful; I sent
Gatlinburg Exterior Painters Provider Name Locked
pictures of my home and color combinations I was considering, and she would promptly send back images of what those details would look like on my home. My home turned out better than I could have hoped and the paint colors were exactly what I had dreamed of.
- Kathleen M.

I have been using
Gatlinburg Exterior Painters Provider Name Locked
for years. Bill and his crew are amazing and I am always thrilled with their work. This was a smaller project-- just one room-- and they did some minor plaster repair and two coats of paint in one day. They are meticulous about prepping and cleaning up and are a pleasure to have around. I will continue to use them as long as they're around!
** I gave them a "B" for price because I'm sure I could find someone who charges less, but I find the price to be perfectly justified by the quality of their work.
- Justine S.

Awful. Owner of company left the job half finished. Promised three times to call back with a date to finish job. He returned none of these calls. His tile work was not well done. Now we have to start over.
- Garold G.

My husband and were totally impressed with
Gatlinburg Exterior Painters Provider Name Locked
professionalism and the quality of their work. Although they were not the least expensive estimate we received, their attention to our needs and the promptness of their response was excellent so we went with them.
Our house looks great. The colors are perfect. The workers were on time, neat and did a great clean up job.
I would definitely recommend

and will plan on using them for interior work in the future.

Since they never returned second call or gave me bid after acting
like the wanted job I assume they are having financial issues or management
Issues,since the partners were arguing.
I have a lovely, charming cottage home that 3 other respectable
paint company's are anxious to paint.These 3 companies have awards

The crew that

gave me a fair estimate and agreed to use a particular brand of paint. The crew showed up on time, patched certain areas, and repainted the entire house. Everyone was professional and did a great job with both the prep work, painting, and clean up afterwards. They did such a great job, I referred my neighbor to
