Default Like sanding?

A few walls to sand and paint this week.
It builds muscle, right?

Usually the drywaller is responsible for the sanding.

Painter's paint, drywall guys tape and sand.

Depends how you get paid and who it is for.
They need it done in 4 days.
You get your painters dusty and move on to painting.

Only 14 feet up gets sanded by the way.

I just cannot believe you had someone ask you why you painted grids and dots on the wall.

"Grids and dots"

Yah, that was incredibly funny.

I hope people like that realize it's a specialty and costs more than painting one solid color.

Sometimes knowledge, experience and insight can become a curse. I've been working on trying to become more ignorant & oblivious myself, but it's harder than it looks!!
In all seriousness this is obviously a commercial job and George knows what he's doing, but when I got involved in this business back in the '70's we NEVER sanded new drywall and neither did the tapers. It was all done with knives and polish coats. Now the system seems to be put in on and sand it off(sanding the paper face of the rock in the process)-I don't know when it actually happened, but it has become standard practice in this area. There was never even any dust to dust off the walls, now it's knee deep!! WE used to just prime/highlight a few imperfections and finish coat. Now if the painter doesn't sand he's a hack! I know-I'm a cranky caveman-I'm trying
