Default New Guy!

Hey all. I've been checking out your forum and I'm amazed at how much knowledge there is here. I've been on others and so far haven't found any that compare. Although, I have seen a few of you on the other forums.

Anyway, I'm from the Springfield, MO area. I have been a remodeler for over 20 years in this area and in that time I've done everything from concrete all the way up to roofing. Last year I wanted to narrow my scope. I've always enjoyed painting interiors and I'm pretty good at it. I don't know everything about it, due to mainly doing residential, but I'm a fast learner. I strive for quality over speed and I won't do anything I'm unsure of until I'm sure of it.

So, to be honest, I'm not a full-fledged painting contractor yet. But I do know enough to understand what I can do and what I can't. I hope that you guys can help in the "what I can't" category. For the "what I can" category, I'll jump right in and help those who are asking questions.

I'm pleased to meet all of you and I hope you feel the same about me.

Thanks guys! Looks like there are a couple of Missourians here.

I don't do exteriors. I'm starting out with residential and a few commercial repaints. Once the business gets off the ground (if it does), I'll move into exteriors. Plus, right now it's too damn cold to get out there!!! LOL

Yeah, it's been crappy here as well. I thought my toes were going to fall off yesterday. I was running all over town meeting accountants and bankers and clients trying to get this business off the ground. In and out of my 'ol truck was making me COLD!
