So, close to Montgomery. How has work been for you? You do mostly repaints?
Mostly new construction, some repaints, and recently commericial, just finished my first job at Maxwell last week and signed contracts on 2 more jobs on base this week. So its picking up and getting better. Thru hard times I went from 18 employees to 4, but now I am back up to 9. How about you, things looking up.

Name comes from Indians. We are on the Alabama River and have just in the past few years started watching the gambling and its effects grow in our small town. But its thier river, right.

I do the same kind of work a lot of NC and some repaints with the occasional small commercial thing comming my way.
I have always been small used to have a couple guys and these days just me and another. Work is picking back up and before long we will all be complaining about not having enough time off.

No final cleaning. A crew goes in and cleans the house, floors, windows, cleaning up all the dust, mud, PAINT, ect. getting it ready to move into.

I am waiting for those days. Racing takes money, and in my world paint means money.

No need to say your sorry, without fun could we really make it thru each day in the life of paint. So far I think all of you are pretty neat.

Default Explain to me

A couple of years ago one of the builders I paint for hired a man from out west area as a super. and he could not believe the way we painted in the south, he said that where he come from there was no cutting in and rolling walls and ceiling, that everything was sprayed. Could someone explain this it me. How does it work if the ceilings are textured, or walls and ceilings are different color. He said that there were prep people that done all the taping off and then a spray man, and no coming back for the dry wall man to touch up after the prime coat went on. If anyone can tell me how this works. Please

We do a lot of NC and spray it all. It requires a lot of plastic and planning, but can easily be done.
