Default Introduction

Hey everyone, I just found this site, I'm the third generation of painter in my family, grandpa started out in Ontario, dads had two company's one in Ontario and one ( currently ) in BC and I've worked for my old man since I was 12 during summer breaks etc, spent 10 years in the oilfields as a welder but every time things would slow down or I wanted a break painting was always there waiting for me so now I've ditched the welding and committed to painting and learning the business side of the job as I've been brushing and rolling for a long time but am new to marketing and estimating.
Dad learned from grandpa and is very old school so it's been refreshing to read about new techniques and being able to read reviews about products I'm interested in.
