Default Hello All

I have been a lurker for a while. I had my own painting and paperhanging business for several years. In 1999 I started a wallpaper removal businesses. I did that till I became ill - depression and was hospitalized. Had to give up the business. I went into another field of business and recently retired
Looking to getting back into the business.
Appreciate all the post.Just want everyone on the forum I am not a hack - just wanting to learn the business once again. Seems everything has changed - ie paint and primer in one.
Keep the post going. Thanks - a Brother of the Brush.

Welcome to the group.

Paint and primer in one is a subject for the DIY forum.

Welcome to the forum. Wallpaper removal business. Ugh. To me that would be like dying and going to hell.

At least it isn't a popcorn removal business.

Welcome!

If you were good at logistics back when you owned your business, it'll be no problem for you today.

As far as materials, everything is geared towards low VOC, which can have their own nuances, good and bad. Then there's the primer finishes, including DTM's that help expedite economical projects.

This trade forum offers a lot of interesting ideas along with some off topic stuff.

And lots of off-color humor.

Hello rubberducky!

Glad to have you and so happy to hear the you won the war against depression. It takes a helleva man/woman to be honest about their bouts with depression, thank you for your transparency. Happy to have you here and enjoy!
