I don't know, a video like that would be as boring as watching paint dry... literally.

Or, it could be a new idea for a show on TLC: "Painting Wars". Two crews of four, two house of similar size and layout, and a time limit to get the complete interiors done. Same color and paint brand (Behr of course) for both houses but each outfit could choose how to do the work. Riveting!!!

I'd put my money on the Mexicans.

I'm being facetious. Don't ban me please. I'll be needing this site during my six week recovery.

I just watched your "how to roll a ceiling super fast".

The noise it made when you loaded your roller cracked me up every time

I had a good laugh out of that video too. Its better to watch it the way it is vs normal speed. The pattern is easier to follow in faster playback.

That's a great price to land, I've been doing 2 coats and prep of walls at $0.85/bd ft with Aura. Of course, the way Super Spec flows so slow off a brush I'd have to charge more to work with it too.

Probably the only job he'll land at that price, unless it does cover in one coat, or he does the second coat at no additional charge and gets a lot of recommendations from the homeowner.
