Yet another newbie, this time from New Zealand.
Let me first say thank you to the fathers of this forum, and the rest of you good old boys and girls for an intelligent conversation pit for all of us who ultimately end up polishing other people's view of their lives.
I mostly do industrial coatings site work as a troubleshooter, but why not waterproof
and elastomerics, plus the usual suspects of commercial and residential where you can spray & walk away. Better still, splash & dash.
Our paint has it's merits, but I do like Yankee at this level because you can still brush & roll and come away with a perfect surface. So apart from C&W, that's another good thing that's come out of the States. Just kidding (before you load the 12guage).
So greetings and salutations, keep looking for that seamless cutline and may God bless us all in these difficult times.
Talk soon
Al

Maybe it's the accent, but I didn't understand a single thing you just said.

Regardless, welcome anyways.

First time I got to read your intro riskend. Welcome!

I'm also an industrial maintenance painter who started in residential and light commercial. It wasn't until I began working in oil refineries and other critical infrastructures, that I began to realize the importance of coatings and their restrictions and compatibilities with various substrates. It sure made my job more interesting!

And as far as Paint Talk is concerned, I really enjoy the business perspective offered by members. The scale of BMP or Best Management Practices, ranges from very poor to excellent. I hope I'm managing my paint shop somewhere at least a little above average.

People keep on employing me for giving them a perfect surface. You know, old school trade practice, bold school application, new school hybrid. Price it accordingly and word of mouth brings more work than you can handle. Suddenly we are into nurturing the best and saying farewell to the rest. Although in truth the worst of them probably cost us an easy retirement because some-one has to care.
I have just realised that my somewhat purist approach to these matters has fitted me into at least 7 years of infrastructural engagement. now I have to work out how I finagle it so I, like the Leningrad Cowboys, can go America, see the boys.
Put a Go-pro on the sundries list for starters.
I posted elsewhere about maverick territory and industrial coatings is the worst of it.
So far 9/11 has given us a global wake-up call, and it costs less ultimately to do a proper job than it does to cut corners and find your nuts in the vice just when you thought it was ancient history.
Thanks for the personal detail buddy
Al
