I use an excellent local painter, actually a father and his 2 sons. They work very well, fast, are clean, and mainly: 100% honest. One son is out of work for 2 months now, and has a family to support. If you can use him, you would help a needy person too. He can do the fine work, like repairs, and "enduido" prior to the painting itself. They know how to work in masonry as well, for any other types of repairs, fixes, touch-ups, etc. They were 3 guys one weekend, and touched-up my whole big house in only 2 full days! It looked as if it had been entirely painted in full.
You can get him on a fixed, per-day rate. I pay him $120, from 8am-4pm, with a 30min sandwich break. But if you give him several days of work, you can arrange a deal. If he takes a helper (ayudante), that would be anywhere from $90 to $100 more. That´s because they can´t do the delicate work.
If they need to work beyond 4pm, then you should give them $15 per hour overtime, each guy.
I´ll pass along his cellular plus my phone and mail, in case you want more info.

Hope this helps.
Anyone else needing excellent paint work, please feel free to call him, or call me for more references. They can also do "presupuestos" for an entire job.
