helping out a friend--painting tipsokay, i sold a house to a nice lady in spr2007, and she put 70k into fixing it up... yes 70k into a home she will be selling for 300k, goes to show what HGTV did for the housing market too, anyone can flip:P anyway, so the house was a 1968 and it was painted 3 times, white, green(very bright green) and white again. on the north wall of the exterior the paint was already peeling up alot. i dont know whether or not she powerwashed it but i guerentee that tere was no scrape/scubbing because: shocker of shockers, the fresh month old coat of exterior paint is already bubbling and peeling up in places. my question is 2 fold, 1 how much more complicated is taking off the new paint(how much did she screw up) and what is the best way for her to fix her mistakes... FSBO means on the cheap, but even i know that you cant paint over peeling paint, grr...April 05 2008 - US00YesReport a ProblemProblemSelect oneOffensive contentIrrelevant contentSpam (pure self-promotion)OtherDetailsYour emailPlease enter a valid email address.Submit CancelContent flaggedWe will review this content.
