cost - popcorn ceiling removal and paint
Just had a painting contractor over. Need to get the popcorn off my ceilings, prep and paint them. Using his estimate ($7500) for about 1400 square foot of ceiling area (living and dining are vaulted 14 foot - rest is flat 8 foot ceilings), that works out to over $5 a square foot. seems really high.
I have calls in to others, but not had much luck getting any call backs. I already work over 80 hours a week, and dont have time to do it myself (did the master bedroom myself last year).
Anyone else have this done? what did you wind up paying for it? I also posted this in remodeling forum. wasnt sure which it applied to more. Thanks!
