Default Hi everyone! New Painter from the St. Louis area

Hi everyone

I'm just starting up an LLC (partnership) painting company and stumbled on this site when I was looking for help giving a bid on a large house (exterior) with intricate trim, difficult areas to reach, etc. The site looks like a great resource especially for us new businessmen haha. I have been doing odd jobs/ residential painting as a side job with a friend for the past 3 years. The majority of our jobs have been staining decks and fences, but we have experience with interior and exterior painting in general. However, I and my partner are not comfortabe with bidding large/difficult projects...we don't want to lose our shorts, but we also need to get a large percentage of our bids at first atleast.
We decided to legitemize our business and we're trying to make it big, with a short term goal of developing a specialty service (possibly cabinet refinishing) and a long term goal of commercial jobs. Glad I found this site, looks like a big helper!
