Denver Interior Painters from people just like you.

was amazing from start to finish. Her prices were the best quote I had and she worked hard the whole time.

-Laura S.

, the youngest member of this family owned business, came in originally to repaint a horrible job from the original painter we hired. He" did a superlative job fixing all of the boo
left by the first painter and so we hired him to repaint the entire upstairs of our house.
was quite meticulous about preparing each room for painting, which was appreciated given that we'd just refinished the floors in the rooms he was painting. He's not the speediest painter, but the extra day or two that he spent was well worth it because the final job was outstanding. We are planning to hire
to paint the outside of our house come spring and we would recommend him enthusiastically. Another bonus -
was very neat and cleaned up well beyond what we expected at the end of each day. And, he was a very nice guy, too, and very professional.

-Joseph A.

guy repairing plaster ceiling
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

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! 

Interior Painting reviews in Denver


He was professional when he was providing the estimate and said that he would be able to begin work on the 5th of November. When I contacted him on the 31st of October to verify he would be able to begin on the 5th of November he said he would be able to start. However when I called him on the 4th of November to finalize details he did not answer my call nor did he return my calls. On the 5th of November he did not show up, he did not answer the phone nor did he return calls. If he had simply told me he wasn't interested in doing the work I would have found a different

contractor and painter. He caused over a week long delay in my remodel process. From the photos of his previous work it appears that he does good work, however as other reviewers have noted he can be extremely flaky.
- Nathan D.

I purchased the deal which was for 16 man hours of painting. The owner,

and his crew were punctual and had all the supplies to start work immediately. They had to tape a lot in the bathrooms and bedroom and they look just as I had hoped they would look...maybe better! They fit me in over a weekend and finished on time before movers came. Every room is just perfect..... They left with no

- Mike W.

They responded immediately to my email to set up a time to get an estimate. He showed up on time for that appointment. They accommodated my time frame to complete the painting before I moved in which required scheduling for the next week. They arrived on time on the start day, before I needed to leave for work. They stayed late and worked through the night on the last night so that the job would be completed. To top it all off, the quality of the job was excellent. Incredibly clean lines. The best paint job I have ever seen. I would not hesitate to hire them again.
- Deborah H.

I called and Rich was very responsive. I had a really tight deadline to have my newly renovated basement painted before the flooring went in. He came to do the estimate at my convenience and was prompt to the appointment.
He had

showed up by 8am or earlier each day and worked until 6 or 7pm each night for 3 days. He was extremely clean and detailed.
At the end the of the job there were a couple minor details missed. Rich and

had them banged out very soon after and we are extremely happy with the final product.

My experience with
Denver Interior Painters Provider Name Locked
was great!
Denver Interior Painters Provider Name Locked
(the owner) was very fast to answer and respond to my phone calls. I got an estimate just a few days after he came by and saw my old kitchen. His ideas were great and really got me excited to get the project going. As soon as i signed the contract, he sent me to his design center where i picked out the tile floors, granite for the counters, and tile for the back splash. After a day of guys coming to measure for granite, tile, appliances etc. work was underway. I was worried about being inconvenienced by the mess and not having a kitchen for some time, but

and his crew were very clean, prompt and did not waste anytime. They worked well around my busy family and dogs, and aside from the occasional bang, were almost unnoticeable. The installment payments were very manageable (3 payments, 1 upon start, 2 after cabinets were hung, and the third when my kitchen was done and I was happy.

was around for the entire project making sure everyone including me and my family knew what was going on and when things would be getting done. At the end of each day

cleaned up the mess from that day, as well as gave me progress reports. The quality of the work is amazing, and it is hard to believe that it is already done, and was so reasonably priced!!!

It went very well. The carpenter was excellent and provided quality craftsmanship. The painter did a good job. I'm really happy with the outcome and I feel fortunate that I found
