Gatlinburg Exterior Painters from people just like you.

"Price quote was within my budget and given over a few phone calls and a few iterations. Once the date was fixed, the crew came on time and worked non-stop to prep" and paint the house. They recommended changing the size of gutters for better drainage. I ended up replacing it. The price was fair. The exterior paint job was finished nicely. The site was left clean. Overall happy with the selection.

"They did an awesome job, very detailed, gave color advice when we asked, very clean, timely, great communicators. Couldn't believe they found water damage" and reported it to us. We have had painters in the past just paint over the damage and not say a word. They also provided expert water damage repairs at a very fair price. The house and outbuilding look great. Very impressed with their attention to detail and use of time. Highly recommend the brothers! We will use them again. Thank you !

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


Excellent work! Advised me well regarding needed carpentry repairs. Reviewed all work in detail with every punch list item. Did not quit until I was totally satisfied.
- Robert G.

Once the original job was done, the owner , offered the extra work
on the doors for free, because he felt that it would make the final
result even better than expected. I was very impressed! and his staff do excellent,
high quality work! It was a pleasure to do business with him ...More and his
employees. They are all very professional and really care about doing a
good job. It was very nice also, that they were always ten minutes
early!! I look forward to doing business with again!!
- Mark H.

This is clearly a case of you get what you pay for. The work he and his crew do is poor to average at best, there was a lot of stuff that needed to be redone since it wasn't done right the first time. He claims he has a crew of up to 10 guys but the majority of the time it appears to be only him. From his own mouth he informed us that he has 8 ...More other guys working other jobs that they started months ago so he would be the one doing most of the work himself. Even though he stipulates that at a minimum he has 3 guys every day. The other thing he stipulates but doesn't stand by is 50% of the money at start and 50% at finish. He texted me many times asking for more money because of one or another in his life. He won't hesitate to bring his kids into the mix as well and make it your problem when asking for more money. I made the grave mistake of paying him the remaining balance before the job was 100% done. He assured me he would be back the next day and finish everything up. Surprise, surprise he has a million excuses for not coming back and now contact has completely stopped. I'm in the process of filing a suit in small claims court. He has no business acumen or morals at all, he will rip you off and/or do poor work.
- Jason E.

It went very well. came and gave us a price for the job, which was reasonable. Had a discount coupon for Angie's list members. A follow up call from us and a contract was made. His team of painters ( , , and ) were excellent. The house looks fantastic. ...More We will be using them in the future for painting of the pool deck and then the interior of the house. We are very pleased with the skill and professionalism of all the painters. was also very professional. The job took a total of five work days.
the deserve the highest evaluation possible on Angie's list.
- Carol M.

was fabulous. So professional, courteous and respectful of my personal belongings. I am more than pleased with the quality of work performed. I am very picky when it comes to lines (where ceiling and walls meet) and these were perfect! Thanks ! I love my sunny yellow bedroom!
- Dana M.

Contacted a week ago and asked for a price to paint the 10 shutters in the front of my house.
replied the same day with a price.
Since it is November, we anticipated that we would get this done in the spring, but called on Friday and said he can do it on Monday.
The ...More painters covered everything in the front of the house to avoid any potential of staining my driveway or walkway. The painters were very careful when working against the house. They applied two coats of the paint and did the job in about three hours.
I think they did an outstanding job and would use them or recommend them again with no hesitation.
- Robert N.

the work was done in a timely manner
The quality was very satisfactory
The attitude of the owner and the man performing the work was very professional
I would recommend them highly
- Pamela V.

Not only was incredibly responsive to my request for a bid (he emailed me back within 24 hours and was at my house within 2 days), but his team did an awesome job repainting our home. The work was flawless, and it only took them 4 hours to perform. He also was able to get me on the books within 1 week of checking out my home. ...More I definitely plan to hire this team for any future painting needs and will definitely refer them to all my family and friends!
