Default Hello from nw Illinois

I've been in business 31 years , located in northwest Illinois, currently employ 4 others full time. One of the reasons I joined here was to check what others pay for material, in talking to other local contractors, I'm always surprised how much difference Sherwin Williams charges for certain products from one painter to another.
Do your rules here allow discussing paint prices? Thanks all, looks to be a great site.

Welcome to PT, most talk about paint prices turn into a pissing match but give it a shot it may not turn out that way. Also look at older posts about paint prices.

Sherwin Williams has always been all over the place with their pricing. I got my pricing code from our rep and tell the stores when I order.

Thanks for all the welcomes, I checked out some of the threads on pricing. Very helpful. So you guys ever get together and tell war stories over bad bottles of whiskey?
