    Default Need a house painter

    I have a 2 story, and got a very expensive quote. Double what I was thinking it would/should be.
    I'll get a few more but do we have someone on the forum who does this? May as well give a brother the business.

    Yeah, painting ain't cheap. We had our house done last year in combination with having some more windows upgraded. I probably could have shopped around for better pricing, but I ended up using a company (Vivax) that did work for a bunch of neighbors and they were pretty happy with them . . . and they also did the windows, so I had one neck to choke with any issues.

    There just wasn't any way I was going to DIY the paint with the size of the house and the lack of free time I have with work and stuff. There's something to be said for having a crew come out with the experience and the right equipment and resources and knocking the whole thing out in a few days. I can't imagine how long it would have taken me to do all of that.

    We used Vivax pro painters, they were awesome!

    It's crazy what the cost has went up to lately. If you plan on staying in your home use Benjamin Moore paint, seriously it's the best I've ever used and Lord knows I flung a lot of the stuff.

    PM sent anyway

    Zombie thread revival!

    I'm looking for a house painter to tackle your standard two story in the centennial area.
