Default intro

hello all. new to this site, (not to painting tho). i had 2 older brothers who were ptg contractors, so i started summers & weekends around 1968. i've worked for others and learned from some of the best. back then at least one of the crew was an 'old master', usually from Europe. started my own biz in 1977. lived on long island till 2004 - moved to OR for a year, then to everett,WA. i can't believe how different ptg is 'out west'! for instance - texture! 35 yrs exp and i have to start learning something new. and spraying indoors on a high end residential repaint? is that normal?
oh well!, long intro, i'll end. - rick

Welcome to the forum. There are some regional differences when it comes to application and products for sure! I am out west too and we spray indoors.
