I live next door to this house and I just wanted to say a big “Thank you!” The pictures do not do justice to how terrible the house looked before ABM purchased it. You all have done so much to add value to the house and also our neighborhood. Thank you so much! I can’t wait to meet the family that eventually moves in! Margaret Annie Williamson March 03, 2015 .
Actively listen to your needs and thoughtfully consider the situation before proposing a solution
Whether you’ve just moved and are daunted by tackling paint projects that haven’t been touched in decades or have lived in your home for a while and need a color update, these next few tips will help make your older home painting project more manageable. Read on for our best old house painting tips and ideas.
Old homes really need the expertise of a professional to get the best painted finish. Professional painters and painting companies not only understand the challenges of painting in older homes, they also understand how to problem solve when they are—inevitably—surprised by something they just haven’t seen before.
Don’t overlook humidity that isn’t related to the weather, either. Need to paint a bathroom? Avoid using the shower or tub too soon before or after you paint.
If you do decide to make it a full-time business, the sky’s the limit. The house flipper/contractor that I worked for billed clients $35 per hour for painting, and paid his best painters perhaps half of that, so there is room for some profit there. Consider the case of Matt Shoup, who started with $100 and went door-to-door, asking neighbors if they needed some painting done, then built a painting business that earns $2.5 million per year!
Painters charge $1 to $3 per square foot to paint a room or interior of a house. The average cost to paint a room is $350 to $850, and the cost to paint a home interior is $1,200 to $3,900. Labor costs alone account for 70% to 85% of your total paint job.

Paint Fact! Flat white is the most popular color for ceilings. You can expect to see an immediate brightening of the room by about 20% when you paint over sun yellowing, and cooking and candle smoke stains.
A wrong paint color scheme, on the other hand, can really cheapen and distract from your very expensive kitchen, date your brand new flooring, or make even the most elaborate Victorian exterior look boring, bland and blah.
Kelly Brothers did an incredible job with our interior paint job as well as stripping and staining some large indoor wood beams. The wood beams is something that other painters would not even attempt to do and Kelly Brothers did it really well. Their prices were better than the competition and we are very happy with the results.
Not all paints are created equal though- different types of paints have different drying times. For oil based paints, let the walls dry for at least 24-hours before re-applying. However, if you are using a latex based paint you can begin your second coat in 4-6 hours.
Great work, had them paint two decks! Communication with their office prior to work being done all the way until work was completed was excellent!
Latex paint typically costs $20 to $63 per gallon, depending on the paint color and quality.
Alexandria, you are a brave soul to tackle the popcorn ceilings. Good luck on the rest of your reno!
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.
