Hey, Just thought about a great idea....why not have a sub-section for stripers under the Professional Painters Section? Just an idea. Think I'll go find a curb to paint today so I can add it to my list of proficiencies and become a true, well rounded professional.

....question - does the guy who sits on the back of a Hwy/Roads truck spraying lines qualify as a professional painter?....or is he a maintenance worker? How about the kids who go around and paint house numbers on curbs during the summer?

And aren't some of those curbs older than 1978? Are they certified renovators?

Default Tough Crowd...

Fellas,

I post on two forums. Painttalk.com and Parking Lot planet.

I am here to talk about paint and procedures.

SEO is a tool that is used to promote your business and attract potential customers.

Trade forums are very good for exchanging information.

Our SEO campaign involves Google ad clicks, Craigslist, Merchant Circle, Hot Frog, Kijiji, Facebook, and Twitter.

We're not here to cause problems...

Thanks for your time,

Tom

We've all seen your awesome vehicles, your awesome pumps, and your awesome CFO in an awesome mood.
I am guessing that instead of using this place as an informative coatings forum where we all come together like one big dysfunctional family to share info, you are playing "show and tell".
I hope you can understand why our attitudes aren't more, awesome...

Why does this thread feel so dysfunctional? Tom and Skip from We Do Lines are two different members and have the same rights to post here as any of us do. They may have come in the door to gain some SEO but they may decide they like the place and post more. I for one hope that they will contribute a bit more in the marketing section as they look to have a successful business model.

Yes they are paint contractors in my opinion and by Nathan's definition of who is paint talk for...

I ban a lot of people before they even get a chance to ask a DIY question.
I think that they have handled themselves well with all the comments that have being made against their business and have not reacted to the flaming.

Lets give them a chance to enjoy PT.

Welcome to the forum / community. Are y'all purely commercial?

I agree with Work, just cuz you are not residential / drywall painters doesn't make you any less of a professional. It just makes your company a different type of professional. How long you been around?

WDL,
We are currently using Coriom Acryilc Traffic paint for our striping. Is this considered a good quality traffic paint, and what do you recommend?

Also, there has been talk of polymer shortages that may have a significant impact on traffic paint. Have you heard of this?

Thanks

Default Thanks for your question...

CApainter,

We have not used Coriom. Our guys prefer to spray SW Hotline and Franklin Hydrophast, both latex.

There is a polymer shortage. We stock about a months worth of SW. Franklin we're out of, and our Rep has told me latex will be available after June 4.

If the shortage continues we will start spraying CR (clorinated rubber) which is available and not effected by the shortage.

Almost all of our jobs are private commercial parking lots. Occasionaly we paint residential basketball courts. The courts are fun because you always have the neighborhood kids watching you. Kinda like the Sandlot. Every 5 minutes they say (with bball in hand) " Hey Mister is the paint dry yet? It's fun, we enjoy it.

Community playgrounds we do for free. ie hopscotch, kickball, and 4 square.

We started the company in 2008 after we called 13 Stripers in CT. to do our own lot. Only two companies called us back. One guy said he only did roads and the other guy said Ridgefield was to far away from his shop (about one hour). We immediately formed an alliance with SW, Graco, and Franklin.

In 2009 we expanded to Florida, This year we expanded into Ohio.

Thanks for your question.
