Default Anyone Interested?

If you are interested and capable then pm me - if you want to bid painting the fire escapes in the pics. Location: central ohio.

We are unable to do this work at this time. This guy is eager to get it done and has been ignored by the last few painting contractors that he contacted.

Too bad you couldn't just plastic the building off and pour dumpster sized buckets down the damn things. That is a LOT of metal to paint

I would rather do some section 8 housing and make some big bucks than work on that thing.

Never argue with a fool - they will drag you down to their level, then beat you with experience.

IDK about the pita factor or the not willingness to pay. I am thinkin they are more then willing to pay for a professional service, So far, they haven't found one....

well, that job looks like a def pita to me. Its probably all rusted and shoulda been worked on 10 yrs ago sooner. You see how high up that is? Then you gotta deal with pedestrians underneath. Beyond that, it would be difficult to spray it because of traffic concerns and over spray, so your left with brush/roll on all that, which would be very time consuming. Lastly, after all that work is done and liability risk taken, who knows when that rust will come back up thru the coating cuz there's no guarantee that it wont, depending on its current condition. Just my opinion.

I wonder what complications there would be for a canadian flying down to ohio to do a paint job would have.

If the price is worth it.... lol

I can tell you what a PITA doing a 50' catwalk 2 stories up was. I can only imagine doing those. Would have to media blast it, prime whole thing, and topcoat with epoxy or some type of system.. that is some bux. Have you priced a new unit yet? It should be nearly as much if not more than a new unit.
