"They came out to look at and give a price within 48 hours of initial contact. Called them back to schedule two days latter and they came out the following week as another job had been" approved prior to us approving. We had others giving bids as well and needed to get with someone that had used their service before I gave them the business. They showed up on time for the two days it took them to prime new drywall and then to apply two coats of paint onto all surfaces. They were quick and courteous and left the job site clean. Paint took a little longer than it should have to become un-tacky when an object was leaned against the wall(5-10 days) but this did not cause issue as flooring and cabinets still had to go in and that ended up being pushed back due to floor manufacturing issues, so all worked out. The paint job looks real nice as well as the color that my wife chose and I would use again. The address I have on my invoicing is slightly different then what you have noted under their name. My invoice has a physical number of 3605 versus 3726 but phone number and street name match up.

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.

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!

Yes - absolutely!  Refinishing is THE VERY BEST way to go to avoid tearing out a perfectly good bathtub that just LOOKS bad after years of use.  Go to the link below for some before and after refinishing pictures of acrylic tubs.

I called three painters for bids on painting an office building in Rockledge. One never returned our call and two came out and gave us a bid for the work. The price was close with the two but the details and the amount of work that
Elkview Exterior Painters Provider Name Locked
painting was doing in their quote was more detailed and better quality of materials. They came out to do the bid when they said.
Elkview Exterior Painters Provider Name Locked
communicated timely and effectively with our bid and scheduling the job. They showed up when they said, they did exactly the work they put in the bid and did it within the amount of time they indicated. The work is very detailed and they cleaned up the site. You can tell by looking at the paint job that the quality is top notch. Materials and workmanship both are top notch.
I would definitely hire them again to do work and would recommend them to anyone that was interested.

(owner) came out with

and gave me a precise quote to have my children's bedrooms painted and one of their closets. I also had them remount a door frame and paint along with a very large loft ledge that needed to be painted to match my trim work. Many of my neighbors had recommended and several in my real estate office had mentioned they do superior work at a great price. The work was done in two days with a crew of five people. I paid the same amount I was estimated at which also included the paint.

treated our place like his and paid attention to the details. He is a very conscientious worker. We have had

do several things with our trailer and he has always worked professionally and reasonably on what we wanted done. I never hesitate to call him when we have things to work on at our trailer. It is also nice to have someone close to the area to look in on the trailer and check to see if everything is good.

They've been very busy of late, but once we got connected all went very well. The owner,
Elkview Exterior Painters Provider Name Locked
, is very professional and the quality of the work is excellent. Besides our kitchen, they painted the entire exterior of our house a few years back. I have a lot of confidence in them and didn't bother to get any other estimates. I will certainly use them again and I highly recommend them to others.

Elkview Exterior Painters Provider Name Locked
never wrote any review in my life, but I feel like I need to share my experience with Transformation Painting, especially the owner
Elkview Exterior Painters Provider Name Locked
. I hope this helps someone from having to run into the same bad experience like I did.
Anyway long story short, I interviewed 4 painters.
Elkview Exterior Painters Provider Name Locked
who is the owner of Transformation Painting was the 4th one that came to my house to do the estimate. I selected
Elkview Exterior Painters Provider Name Locked
to do the job based on the following reasons.
1.
Elkview Exterior Painters Provider Name Locked
told me he was going to use SW Emerald paint
2. Will do 3 (yes, THREE) coats on the West and South side of the home because those sides are beat up very bad due to direct sun light
3. Indicated that he will spend a good amount of time to prep including scraping, sanding, caulking, fixing rot wood, etc., and strongly emphasized that good prep work is the key factor in any painting job (it even says so in his business card, and along the sides of his van).
4. Could start the job right away
5. Price was lowest (though not too far off from the other ones, and this was not the
main reason I select him)
6. Didn’t appear professional, but confident, and convincing
Everything was good until he started the work (of course after insisted me to give him 50%, and I gave him ~35% instead). He spent total of about 3 days working on my house (3200 SF two story home), but took him 1 month to finish. He came one day and said would come back the next day, but never shown up for a week. The worse thing was that he did not call to inform me. He had to call him and left a few messages before he called back around noon and said “I am not feeling well today” (Later I was told he was not sick,
but rather worked on different houses instead). This pattern repeated three times. When he was at the house, he was constantly on phone with potential customers.
The quality of his work is terrible. At the initial estimate, he was all about great prep work but what he did (after getting the deposit) was totally different. No proper prep work was done. He painted over those old paint which almost came off. He did OK the lower part of the house, but the upper part (perhaps he thought it was harder to see), he painted only one thin coat. The two guys who worked for him, and walked off because they couldn’t work with
Elkview Exterior Painters Provider Name Locked
told me this. They also told me that the reason they didn’t want to work with
Elkview Exterior Painters Provider Name Locked
because
Elkview Exterior Painters Provider Name Locked
forced them to “just get done fast”, and that was just against their moral, so they walked off.
Elkview Exterior Painters Provider Name Locked
left all by himself and NEVER finished the job (even I went and help him for a few hours) and had to deduct some amounts of money from the agreed amount.
After the house was painted, all of our family and friends who came and visited our house couldn’t believe the house was just painted. I called in a different painter soon after that, and he looked at it and told me the same thing (all of the upper part around the house has only one coat, and that absolutely no prep, the lower part had two THIN coat). I had to spend extra money to hire another contractor to put another coat of paint around the house, as well as replacing some rodent wood, and caulking.
All in all,
Elkview Exterior Painters Provider Name Locked
was very disguising. He said all the good things, but his work was completely the opposite. I would not recommend
Elkview Exterior Painters Provider Name Locked
from Transformation Painting at all.
Elkview Exterior Painters Provider Name Locked
will try to get you hooked, collect your money, and won't care about the job. He probably guess he won't be around painting your house a second time any way.

Considering intermittent weather delays due to cold wet weather the exterior paint project was completed without a hitch.
Elkview Exterior Painters Provider Name Locked
and his partner
Elkview Exterior Painters Provider Name Locked
were on hand every morning to oversee the progress of their crew that ranged from 2 to 4 men. The
Elkview Exterior Painters Provider Name Locked
crew were all super guys. They worked so quietly I hardly knew when they had left at day's end. As weather delays cropped up, I received a call each time.

's crew moved all exterior fixtures and outdoor furniture with care and consideration to place everything in a convenient, out of the way location. And, when the job was complete, everything was put back in their exactly correct place. The wood repair, prep, all materials and painting were 100% satisfactory. It was enjoyable to receive
Elkview Exterior Painters Provider Name Locked
