Default When will they learn

Took the kiddos to go bananas today and as soon as I walked in this is what I saw.



Isn't it cheaper to do it right the first time?

That's pretty bad. How old do you think that paint job is?

A similar thing happened here near my store. I stopped a few days ago to talk to some painters who were setting up to paint the exterior of a local department store. Of course they were from "out of town" and didn't use anything but SW. But that's ok! Because they did almost no prep whatsoever on a pealing cinder block building that hasn't been painted in at least 20 years. The old paint was falling off the block and had almost 1/8" of efflorescent salts on the chunks. They scraped around the pealing areas, put a quick coat of an ALKYD primer on the bare spots and sprayed the whole building without even cutting in and of course no backroll whatsoever. This morning I drove around the building and noticed that there is an area that didn't get any paint sprayed on it at all. I figured that area was at least two car lengths long and by counting blocks I estimate it at twenty feet tall.

Thanks for not using me guys! I wouldn't want to be the guy getting stuck with that complaint! And since they were from "out of town" who do you think the building owners would have gone after!
