Remodeling tip: Should painting or flooring come first?

Angie Hicks responds to a member who wants to know whether interior painting should come before or after the installation of hardwood flooring.

Interior Painting

Professional decorators say painting is one of the easiest and least expensive ways to dramatically change the look of a room. It's also one of the more accessible do-it-yourself projects for the homeowner, though a professional interior painting company will likely do a better and more long-lasting job.

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!

This company was selected due to the attention to details including repair of stucco, joints in wood trim and doors, scraping of peeling paint surfaces, patch repairs of concrete and power washing. The exterior was sprayed and then back rolled. The work was done timely and at the end of the day area was always cleaned. Windows were covered and protected and once the job was finished all windows were washed. We were very happy with the results and our home looks great. We would definitely hire this company again and plan to have then do some interior painting.

DO NOT HIRE THIS MAN UNLESS YOU WANT NOTHING BUT HEADACHES! It was a nightmare from the start. He came out on a Sunday and removed 3 out of 4 of our countertops and took out our kitchen sink. He said he would be back the next day with the new countertops (we provided him with the plywood, laminate, and contact cement). Six days later, he still had not been back to install them. I could write a book with all the excuses he had. On Friday, he finally came with 2 other guys and removed the 4th countertop and dropped off the countertops he made. When I got home from work and saw the new countertops, I was extremely upset. They were very poor quality - ragged edges, crooked lines, seams in FRONT on all countertops, a big crack on one. I did not want him to come back and install these in my kitchen. On Saturday, we fired him and are now left with no countertops in our kitchen and the sink was not put back. We spent $900.00 on this project and have nothing to show for up except a kitchen that's all torn up. Now, we have to hire a carpenter to replace the wood he broke around the sink and all the trim he broke before we can even get someone else to install countertops for us. He will sweet talk you but do you use this man unless you want to be out a lot of money and have an unfinished project on your hands.

Can't say enough about

and crew. Everyone extremely professional and excellent craftsmen. I was not prepared for everything they did on my painting project(four room and hallways). I thought two guys would come and paint. Be ready for a construction project. 2 days for prepping walls, dents, holes and everything else that needed fixing. Then the painting comes. Beautiful work. We are extremely satisfied. Price? Worth it to me. You get what you pay for.

was great! He was accommodating and came to give me an estimate within a few days of contacting him. His estimate was more competitive than other painters and he stayed true to budget. He worked around our tight time-frame, working on the weekend to get all the painting done for our move-in date, and communicating updates via text. When I thought there was a problem with the paint color,

came by for the estimate, took extensive notes of the work to be done, and delivered a detailed quote for the work when he promised. He was flexible about starting the work to meet our schedule. And handled a few last minute changes to wall colors, and including closets which we originally were going to skip, without a problem. His crews always arrived on schedule, and made the deadlines we established without compromising the quality of their work. In the end we noticed some unsightly phone

we wished we had asked to be removed and patched over, his crew handle one, and after they finished the work and left, we realized there was another one, and he handled it himself on the spot, he even repaired a ding the movers left, we really appreciated it. Quality work throughout and they did a great job matching a specific color we had wanted.
All in all very happy with the work, and would recommend

The painters did a good job and a site supervisor checked on the progress at least once daily. Payment is due after the work is done (no down payment) and 12 month same-as-cash financing is available, so payment was easy. The site supervisor made a complete walk-around with us at the end to make sure everything was satisfactory. The work is warrantied for a year, and they will come back to touch up any spots we discover during that time. We will use them again.

(the owner) and his crew are always professional and meticulous. Their work is impeccable, really upper echelon caliber. I really cannot be more highly of this company. If someone were to ask me if I knew a good painter, I would tell 'em "you're crazy" if you don't use Universal. If you're in the

The crew showed up right on time. They were skeptical whether they would be able to complete the job within the four hour Angie's List "deal" but got to work and managed to finish well within the time frame of the deal.
