Default Level 5 drywall and high expectations

Customers expect perfect walls but don't realize that GWB needs alot of work to be smooth. Most painters are tired of having to explain wall perfects cannot be covered with "another coat of paint" basically if they want perfect they need to request a level 5. I have made a video to briefly explain this to owners. Please feel free to in-bed this video on your website; send me an email and I will send the html. level 5 video

The person who should get the drywall to a level 5 is the one who is smart enough to talk the customer into it who is able to deliver on the promise.

Never argue with a fool - they will drag you down to their level, then beat you with experience.
