Default Hello from Texas

Hi, glad to be here. I read about PT on CT and decided to stop by. I am not a painter, but I am a paint "contractor" by default in a way. I am a GC, and we own a paint company that we use strictly for our work, which often is paint work and custom cabinet finishes, and we have some pros on staff. My dad and I are partners, and he is a great painter, although he has been ot of the field for some time, I guess I should of taken advantage of his knowledge when I had the chance. Two of our painters have worked for him for 19 years, since I was 8. I usually found other work when there was painting to be done, and all my time in the trades was as a carpenter and welder.

Now I have come to believe painting is the most important part of the building process, since it is what people see, and what sells my new work!

I have a lot to learn, and hope to pick up some tips and good info from the pros. Thanks in advance, JAW

I'm not sure these guys would agree with that statement.
