Or, hire a good painter to do the job. Hiring a painting company is one of the better values with contractors. Let them move stuff, climb ladders, clean up and most do a really good job. Search on here for painting contractors and two or three really stand out as doing a great job.
To hire someone to do the painting job for you is great if you’re not able to do it. But from my experience on finding somebody to do the work for you, personally they’ll rip you off & charge you way more than the job is worth. But again if you can afford they’re prices to rip off the senior citizens go ahead. TV handymen really have a racket going.

I'm sorry you feel that way. But if you do your homework, request references, (LOOK AT THEIR INSURANCE POLICY) check TOTV and ask neighbors you should be OK. Investment Painting didn't last 53 Years by ripping people off. Hire a painter to "Paint" hire a handy man to fix things. Len the retired half of Investment Painting Contractors.

I painted the entire interior of our home 3 years ago. I used Behr Ultra paint w/primer included from Home Depot. One coat was enough for a nice looking finish. I agree with other posters regarding using eggshell finish. I spent a Long time cutting the line from wall to ceiling. Trim and sills and cabinet edges I used blue painters tape.

Our interior walls painted with Sherwin Williams, had the perfect roller with the correct Knapp and the taping was evidently perfect since we had no overlap or bleeding. The correct brush was used for the cut in and there is no evidence of paint on the ceiling where it was cut in. The ceiling was not painted. One final hint to our success.....Benny and Marie painting and home decor.....I think I forgot to mention that

Sorry, but I was just talking about a few bad experiences that I had. My neighbor had about 10 new very little bushes planted & he needed them moved about 1 1/2 ft. closer to the house so he called a contractor to see if he could move them. Now mind you the soil in TV is sand & very easy to dig a hole, this person wanted $1,200. to do an hr. & a half job. My neighbor did it himself in about an hr. & a half. To me that’s not a fair price Now that’s just my opinion!

Great idea using Satin for the garages, easier to clean. We haven't done ours yet and I'm so used to doing "eggshell" for everything. Thanks!

Yes, I agree. Two yard guys charged us $400 for four hours work trimming the shrubs. Carpet cleaner wanted $400 to bring his steam cleaner over to just run it over the tile...no grout cleaning or furniture moving required.

Hire a painter and save yourself a lot of aggravation. There are some wonderful painters in TV and they are not expensive. I used Steve Kling and my home looks beautiful. I am going to get him to do inside soon. Is it worth falling off a ladder and ruining your retirement to save a few $$$? I especially hate painting ceilings. HAPPY THANKSGIVING!
