"We had some difficulty scheduling due to our work schedules and some unexpected snow days, and we did have to chat on the phone with the owner after a little confusion" over email. When they came to do the work, it was done very well. The worker was very friendly and made sure to use protective plastic and fabric around all the areas and cleaned up after himself. Any supplies that we didn't have he purchased and they added that to the bill, no upcharge. You can't even see any variations and it blends perfectly, even though we didn't know if we had the right ceiling paint color. We paid a very fair price and really appreciated that he stayed late to finish the job that same day. We would definitely use them again, really appreciated the quality of work.

"Ed was very punctual, communicative and professional. He did a great job and was efficient and detail-oriented. I would definitely have him do work in my house again. Great job.

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.

Plastering, Painting - Interior

Dear Angie: How important is it to repair plaster before repainting? Our ceilings have peeling paint that we’re pretty sure was caused by past water damage. Since the water problem is no longer an issue, can we simply repaint the ceilings or should we first repair any underlying plaster damage? – Sara S., Elgin, Illinois

Have you ever looked around your home and felt it was just too dark and dreary? A dark room can definitely make you feel down, especially during the winter months. Check out these 5 tips to bring new life to the darkest of rooms.

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!

showed up exactly on time with his painter. He made sure everything was set up for the painter for the day. I had one painter for 2 days (16 hours). He did a beautiful job. His work was excellent. He was kind and considerate and professional. He left my house clean and picked up of all his materials. I have more painting to be done at my house and plan on using Mr.

They were quick to return my call. One of the brothers came out shortly thereafter and gave me an estimate, They arrived promptly at 8 a.m. on the designated day to begin all the prep. There were several young men taping and sealing off the area so they were able to get to work very quickly. The job required two days to complete which was reasonable for all the mudding and patching required. They are very polite. They removed all the debris and help me to replace the furniture at the end of the job. They did an excellent job. I already have plans to have additional rooms to be painted since this job went so well.

Went very well. Very courteous, conscience and excellent job. I have had others that came in and did not do as good of a job. He did take a bit more time, but worth it. Did a quality job. I would use him again.

Two very well dressed men came to the door, offered their card for identification and were on the job within a few minutes. They were fast workers and very neat. They covered my furnishings, etc. with a plastic cover. The lead man was very skilled and personable. When I need to paint again, I would like to have this team. I highly recommend this company, The owner also worked with me on getting it scheduled at my convenience.
So far I'm very impressed with Angie's list people.

is so trustworthy; he arrived when he said he would and worked diligently during the time he was here with just a short break for lunch each day; he was very professional but also easy to communicate with; I thought him a very fine man.
He was true to his estimates for inside and outside the house; he informed us about the the paint he was using and was overall informative about each paint he used. I would use him for all paint jobs bar none and would highly recommend him. It is so wonderful to have someone you can fully trust to keep their word in your home.
Both myself and my husband like him very much and appreciate his outstanding work and the fine man he proved himself to be.

I was contacted almost immediately by

through

email and the date I requested for service was accepted. The Work - I had two places in my home that needed repair. One spot was a hole in my basement ceiling, roughly 16 inches x 16 inches. The other was a crack in my upstairs ceiling where another contractor had almost put his foot through the ceiling while working on my HVAC. The hole required a new piece of drywall (which I had on-hand) and the other was a patch job. The Result -

was alone on this job and arrived at the agreed upon time. He took an appropriate amount of time to setup the area, dropping clothes to cover anything nearby. The hole that was patched in my basement with new drywall turned out beautifully. It was an A++++ job and nearly impossible to detect any seams. The patch job upstairs was also very good work. Keys to success were having the drywall on-hand and easy access to the areas being repaired. About

is very nice and professional.
We scheduled a day and the men showed up right on time ready to work. They were extremely careful and covered everything up, including the floors, handrail on my stairs, countertops etc. You can tell that they knew what they were doing. They were very polite. The whole job took 2 days. It is a large house. I could not be happier with the results. I didnt know he did construction too, so I hired him to do some work in the house because we were so pleased with the painting. I was very happy with that as well. You will not be sorry if you hire them. I cannot say enough good things. Now I am going to save up to get my bathroom remodeled and will for sure use him.Thank you
