Default Hello from Louisville KY

Hey folks,
I'm glad I found this site and it is long overdue that I should join a pro painting forum. I'm 42 years old and have been painting my whole life. I started going with my dad during the summers when I was just 7 years old. He was basically just "babysitting" me but he would give me a brush and tell me to paint something. It would take me all day to paint a lamp post or something, but he would give me 5 dollars a day and I thought I was rich, ha ha. Anyway, before long I was climbing a 28 foot extension and actually getting some real work done. When I was 17 I started about a decade or so of working with other painting contractors. 3 or 4 of those guys turned out to be reputable and knowledgeable, the rest were flakes. Over the years I've seen and done just about everything. Interior, exterior, residential, union type crews, new constuction to fence painting and everything in between. Now my work has evolved into mostly residential interior repaint, with some new constuction and light remodel work scattered in. I focus on above average quality work, more high end type clientele. I would say I'm "old school" for the most part, which can probably be summed up by saying that I don't pull out my airless unless it REALLY IS the best way to approach a project, lol. Hope I can offer a lot AND learn a lot here.

Troy
