Why should I hire a painting contractor versus just painting myself?  
Painting takes time -- and money.  Most people would agree that time is money too.  So lots of missteps happen for various reasons when you try to do it yourself (DIY)  For instance, choosing a paint that doesn't fit the proper painting application can lead to a big loss of time and money.  Or even if you use the correct paint, the way it is applied to the walls or trims may be done incorrectly and this often times can lead to higher cost and mistakes that take inordinate amounts of time to fix, undo, or redo.  Just get it done right the first time to avoid any complications the typical DIY folks most of the time.

When should you prime walls before wallpapering?
 By far, this is the most common question with many variations like: Should I prime on plaster?, Should I prime on new sheet rock? or,  Do I need to prime when the wall is already painted? Priming is the most important step in any wallpaper job-- whether it is a professional or amateur job. There are instances where priming the wall is not necessary but those instances are rare. It really takes the experience of a professional paperhanger to know when to prime and when not to prime. If you want to know more about this subject in depth click here.

Do you have limits on the size of the projects you take on?
We paint all types of homes and businesses.  The size, age, and type of structure is not important with regard to whether or not we will take on a project.  We are experts at painting and refinishing all types of residential and commercial buildings using a variety of techniques.  If, for whatever reason we can not (or do not want) to take on your project, we will have a good reason for doing so.  And we will make sure to point you in the right direction so you can find the proper company who will paint your dwelling, structure, or building.

How much will my painting project cost, and can League Painting give me a quick estimate over the phone?
There are many factors to consider when determining painting costs.  Condition of surface, size of project, and the complexity of the refinishing itself all factor into the price of the project.  For this reason, we do not give estimates over the phone.  It is not a fair practice to quote a project we have not scene in person.  Scott League, owner and operator, will come out personally to advice you on the best course of action, and along with the free inspection, a bid/estimate will be given.  You can feel confident when you deal with League Painting, you will get a fair offer reflective of what the market is bearing at the time you are planning your project.

How do you determine the amount you will charge for my painting project?
There are many things to consider including the condition of your paint surfaces, the extent and cost of the painting and refinishing required, and how fast you need the project completed.  A rough house painting estimate is hard to do without seeing it.  Read more on our

How long will it take to paint my house?
The process can take as little as 3-4 days from the time we connect with you.  However, it can take longer depending on the condition of your surfaces, the type of work required, and weather conditions if the project involves exterior work.  During our consultation with you, we will evaluate your situation and let you know how long we think it will take to complete your painting project.

Can I use Wallpaper if I have textured or uneven walls? 
Yes. There are three alternative solutions which would allow you to hang wallpaper over surfaces as rough as cinderblock, stucco or paneling. 1. A fabric-backed vinyl 2. Commercial liner 3. Expanded and paintable wallpaper.  We offer wallpaper installation / wallpaper hanging services in St Louis, and we also offer wallpaper removal in St Louis and surrounding areas as well.
