I agree completely — never paint over wallpaper! My house is very old and the original owners had wallpaper (layer upon layer) in every room in the house — even the bathrooms. Then the last owner painted over the wallpaper. Yikes! What a mess. So glad most of it is gone but it was a chore. Thanks for the great tips to painting the house. Quality tools are key (and patience). Skylar Mitchell February 25, 2015
Paint supplies like tape, masking paper, drop sheets, rollers, paint brushes, buckets, grids, plastic, test patch color samples add approximately 20% to the calculated paint gallon cost. Also, if you don’t have sanding pads, scrapers, drywall compound, or other prep materials, add another 10% to the above cost. .
What’s more, we offer the most extensive service quality guarantee in the entire painting industry.
Some say brush is better than spray, and others say spraying is better than brushing. Either one is just as good as the other if applied properly. Spraying is a more frugal way of painting, not spending near as much time painting exterior, where time is money, and money is time, but still applying same amount of paint either way.

Location is also a major price factor as those in rural or remote areas do pay cheaper prices. Charging by the hour costs about $25 for labor on basic jobs and up to $50 for large painting jobs; excluding materials. Getting materials like brushes, tarps, paint, and rollers generally cost extra. Prepare to pay about $20 to $75 for a gallon of paint, based on the paint quality. The common paint brands for home use include Benjamin Moore and Sherwin Williams.
Straight exteriors on a box-shaped house make painting work easier as compared to irregularly shaped homes with two or more stories. This means that if you were to undertake the work of painting your sophisticated home, you would need more than a ladder to access high nooks and crannies.
