Hello everyone, i am new to this kind of thing and just wanted to check it out, I am a painting contractor (28) years and have had it with Florida! Been here all my life and its getting too expensive to live here.I am considering a move to Warner robins area Ga.I dont know anyone there but i have checked it out and the cost of living is much, much less than here in Fl and i can get much more house for the money.My main question is what is the painting industry like there? I do 60% repaints and 40% new construction.I am fully licensed & insured here but does a sole propiorter have to carry comp there if he works alone?..Anywhere i have ever lived i always seemed to get hooked up with the right people and things just take off from there for me.So i am lucky that way,once people see the effort & quality i offer them at there home the referrals just start coming in,.but can anyone offer any suggestions for a fellow painter just getting started in a new area? I have read a lot of the posts and you guys all seem like pros, so any help you can offer i would be thankful for,Elastoman

Wow, i didnt realize that 2000 was considered big, most of the homes that i paint are 3000-6000 sq. ft. and they are for what i would consider well off people.I guess the taxes must be really high up north,

That sounds like a good size house with really low taxes and even lower insurance. I wont even tell you what we pay in NC
