I worked for Service Painting in Fort Myers before throwing in the towel, 100+ painters on payroll.
I was doing great untile Cape Coral folded, Sanibel Island was cooling down, and Naples was locked in.
If they are seeking painters outside of Florida, it's because they've burned every painter IN Florida.
Imho.

I know a guy, a union painter, went down there and opened up a outfit and went on to fame and fortune by all accounts.

then I know another guy that went down and came back broke.

Nothing like mixing business and family with a sprinkle of terrible Florida economy...

I realize that it's a personal deal, but imho that's even more reason to keep it away from business.

Personally I hope you score the "hail Mary" contract that sees you through the winter where you are now.
Florida is a siren...she'll sing to you...then kill you.

I left n. Michigan to paint out the winter there, seems as though nothing has changed since 2005...

HI EVERYONE! ..new to the forum here! Been reading through some threads this morning. I liked the 'show off your lines' thread. ... I am also an excellent freehand painter, no tape needed! And we have lots of rough stucco and knockdown here! Bullnose accent walls, no problem. .. heck, if a customer wanted pin-stipes on their stucco, I could even do that freehand, too.

If you're very skilled. .. it is terrible to be underpaid!
lots of talk with no pics is just lots of talk

Yep, I know what you mean. Everyone says they can paint.

... but there are some pics. Yes, I can prove that. They are in the "SHOW OFF YOUR LINES" thread.


PT is so much fun & Painting is Awesome!
