We had several major cracks in our walls and ceilings, the Kelly Bros team has done an amazing job repairing the cracks and blending. Texturing looks perfect and the paint crew will be in next. I’ll follow up later with the painting work, we’re having walls, ceilings, and cabinets painted. The Kelly Bros customer service has been absolutely fantastic, from estimate to the work being done, totally top notch.
I hired a painting company to paint my house and garage. Price was about $5,000.Sherwin Williams paint T-1000. When he was questioned about the paint peeling two days after he painted the garage he quit even with a contract not a very professional person. So,now I have to find someone else to paint my house.After 3 weeks of them trying to paint around the rain. The original time frame was 3-4 days.Yes 3 weeks and all that got done was a small two car garage that could have been done in two days.I know he did not prep correctly and properly I will end up having to redo the garage. I went to Sherwin Williams and got the colors.So beware even with a contract and good references.

Learn to “dial back” a strong color like the pros. Many of our customers initially say they are eager to infuse their homes with color, but lose their confidence mid-way through the selection process. They fear that even warm, inviting colors like pumpkin-coral or meadow green will overpower a wall and fall back on a “safe choice” in the off-white/beige/deep ivory family. This is fine – unless it leaves you yearning for the warmer color you sought in the first place. In this case, try confining a splash of color to one wall – the dominant wall – or choosing a lighter shade (or two) of the same color.
When pricing out your interior paint job, you need to first determine exactly how much wall space is going to be covered. How much of it is going to be touched up? How many walls need a complete redo? Most importantly, does your potential painting contractor offer touch-ups?
When we think of interior painting, it’s easy to assume your home improvement project should be done in the spring or summer months. But did you know there are benefits to interior painting in the winter months? Because there is less humidity, your paint will dry noticeably faster and better in the colder months, winter is the best time for painting the exterior or the home’s interior.

Painting interior doors properly is much tougher than most people think, especially if you want a professional finish. Interior doors are mostly painted in a higher gloss or semi-gloss finish which is less forgiving than the eggshell paint used for walls.
To ensure better adhesion of paint, increase durability and protection for walls.
Create the best first impression for customers by repainting your building’s exterior.
As an example, the hourly rate for a painter in Chicago is nearly 30% higher when compared to a smaller city like St. Louis.
Mr Paritosh, I am not sure about actual application of PVC in this case. I have seen people using acrylic panels on wall ,not PVC. I am not sure what material & application you are talking about. Please talk to some expert, I think you should apply coat of primer or some chemical on brick wall before covering it with finish material directly. This is not proven option, so you will need to experiment & see how it goes. Between idea sounds interesting – save on plastering & paneling. We did one room where client wanted one wall to remain as brick wall. We did primer on it, it was left as highlighter. Such experimental ideas are risk prone. In most cases they do not last for years. Either they dont stay functional or you stop liking it.
One more thing to keep in mind is that the lowest estimate is rarely the best deal. That's because the quality of materials and workmanship is generally inferior. A competent, responsible contractor will never sacrifice quality for cost savings.
Detailed and fabulous post Josh! Thank you, and what a fab job you are doing with that house…erm, can we hire you to fly down and paint our beach house in Jamaica? 🙂 paul July 14, 2017 Laura Hager February 25, 2015

Blend your roller work into the previously cut-in areas, and do not stop until the entire ceiling has been painted.
Though low-quality paint does offer some cost savings, the reduced cost is really only deferred. Cheaper paints are not designed to last, meaning fading, chipping, and damage can occur in a minimal amount of time, necessitating the house being painted again.
