Allow your first coat of paint to dry completely. According to Behr, you’ll need to wait at least two hours in between coats. Don’t be tempted to reuse paint-covered brushes or rollers. Start fresh to ensure your second coat goes on as smoothly as the first.
Sprayers themselves haven’t changed much in the last 10 years but the tips they use have. Tips are now excellent at atomizing the paint (making a very fine mist) and delivering the paint to the painted surface reliably. We use Graco paint sprayers and they are high tech, very expensive machines specifically designed to do what we’re doing as professional painters. Spraying produces the nicest looking finish, the most uniform coating, and when used by a professional painter gives the customer the highest quality product most efficiently. In the hands of experienced painters, 1 pass with a sprayer over a properly prepared surface will produce a better coating than multiple passes with a brush and roller. .

Couldn't have been happier....They are very1. Very professional and polite2. Honest and fair3. Kept to their word on the beginning of the project and end date.

Workers showed up on time and work was finished as promised. Very courteous. I would use Rubens painting in the future for other projects.
If you’ve decided to purchase the paint yourself, follow these guidelines to find out how much paint you’ll need.
Latex paint typically costs $20 to $63 per gallon, depending on the paint color and quality.
PPG exterior paints range in price from $38 to $78 per gallon, depending on the finish you choose for your exterior. The brand has over 135 years of experience and is a global supplier of premium exterior paints. PPG paints are useful for painting older homes as they can easily cover up blemishes and imperfections depending on the finish. They offer a variety of colors, metallics, and wood stain colors, too.
If you decide to paint your ranch house, you will pay between $5,950 and $17,000. If you look at a ranch house from the top, it should look like an "L" or "U" shape. They're a common sight in suburban environments. They were prevalent in the subdivisions built in the 1950s and after the close of World War II. Design experts recommend a neutral exterior color with a bright and complementary accent color when painting your ranch house.
The other thing you will definitely want to do before you paint your exterior is to sand or scrape off all chipped paint from the surface.
Less furniture means less time spent moving and covering items in your rooms. Accordingly, this means a cost savings of a few hundred dollars per floor you choose to paint.
Note: These costs cover average repairs and preparation plus painting the house. Significant house repairs such as replacing siding boards or panels before painting are a separate expense. Permits, Inspection, Related Costs and Installation Time Permits and Inspection Cost $0 | Since painting a home is a non-structural alteration, no permit is needed
Painting the inside of your house can be a great way to spruce up your home and give it a brand new and polished look.
You can also save money by shopping around for painters and getting bids from different service providers. Start with recommendations from friends, neighbors and trusted websites and from there get quotes for how much the paint job will cost. If you go with the first price you’re quoted, you might miss out on a bargain. And if you rent your home, be sure to check with your landlord to make sure painting your space is allowed.
Wondering the price/bid that it would take to get this job finished. The home is around 1600 Sf with a garage with two stories and an unknown Sf. I don't want to empty the guys wallet, but also don't want to undercut myself if it turns out to be more work then originally planed.

If that price is more than what you wanted to pay, there are ways to cut down on the cost. Hire a painting team to paint the trim only. An average of 500 feet of finished trim will cost around $750 to $1,800 for labor and materials. Tack on the front door and shutters. Painting the front door will only cost $100, getting your shutters painted will be around $60 to $80. These will all improve your home's curb appeal and help to increase its resale value.
Once all the walls were patched, repaired, dry, and sanded it was time to spray on the primer. Using the sprayer took some getting used to. If you do have a big project ahead of you and decide to buy or rent a sprayer, here are a few tips I (as an amateur) would pass on to you when it comes to using a sprayer:
