I am curious about how much time it takes for you and your crew to complete a interior repaint.

Repaint this house:

-2000 sq ft average house.

-Walls and avg. millwork package

Thx

Give us more information:

- One tint on all surfaces?
- Number of color schemes?
- Number of rooms?
- Number of doors? Types?
- Type of windows?
- Vacant home?
- Flooring being replaced?

Too many variables!!!

....and there is definitely no "average millwork" !!!

Have you ever seen the preprimed stuff? They might as well NOT prime it at all after all the time you have to go through fixing their crappy wood/prime work

Thanks Nu. If I put myself up against what you listed I would half as fast or twice as slow. I am a one guy operation and like to see how I stack up.

To the kidde pool; last one in is a rotten egg. Come on the water is fine, a little warm but fine. Hey, it's a kidde pool.

Doors have been getting worse and worse for that also, we used to pretty much be able to prime and sand the edges & spray two finish coats and call them done, now we re prime the whole door, sand 100% of it, then 2 finish coats.

Cheers
