Nigel notes that there are two very important reasons why you want a detailed proposal. The first, as described above, is so you can make an informed decision about what exactly you will be getting for your money. The second is because the proposal will act as a road map for the project, to which not only you, but also the crew, can refer. For example, at the end of each day Nigel’s designated foreperson checked in with me to review the progress. He or she was able to tell me that this area was going faster or slower than the bid indicated and ask me if/how we wanted to adjust. In other words the bids served as a point of reference that facilitated mutual expectations and clear communication throughout the entire project. Above: Shiny painted floors at The Rose Hotel Deal.

This was a really thorough and great post! Thanks for taking the time to share with us. Now I want to get to painting… amy February 25, 2015
We prepped the house by pressure washing. I found this affordable pressure washer on Amazon and it worked great! We sprayed the brick with just water to clean it. The vinyl was sprayed with a small amount of outdoor cleaner added to really loosen the grime. We worked from top to bottom and used a ladder with ladder stabilizer, making sure not to spray upward on the siding (this would cause water to run behind the siding which can be very bad). Once this was done, we let the siding completely dry before the next steps.

Nothing beats this cheapest, easiest and most dramatic way to improve your house inside and out.
Use fine-grit sandpaper to remove the gloss from the surface you’re painting. You want to use sandpaper to remove just the glossy part, not all the old paint.
Ceilings may require just as much prep as the walls depending on the situation. Water damage and fixing cracks in ceilings is often a costly necessity. The added cost is due to the difficulty of performing prep work like sanding, patching, and priming an overhead surface and safe ladder work.
However, White Dove (OC-17) is still regarded as a warm soft off-white. As an exterior paint color, you can use White Dove on your home’s siding or trim. Similar to alabaster, this trending color is best used to brighten up shaded houses. The color really pops when surrounded by greenery and contrasted with black shutters or slate-toned windows.
When you hire a professional to paint your exterior walls, you may want to have them paint other parts of the house, too. You could save money by bundling all your painting jobs together instead of hiring a separate contractor for each one.
How much you pay your painter is dependent on the skill level of your hired painting team and the scope of work needed to be done. An Apprentice painter typically charges between $25 and $40, and Journeyman painter will charge between $45 and $70, and a Master painter will charge between $60 and $100. While it is not expected or required, you should also consider tipping your painters after a job well done.
Our painters most commonly use Sherwin-Williams paint, but we are happy to discuss alternatives if you have another preferred brand. When possible, we recommend low- or zero-VOC paints for our projects which produce less odor and are less toxic.
