Well here's one that will last awhile!(2-3 months) Two 5 story apartment buildings.We are painting all the hallways,baseboards,doors & door frames. Literally miles.Then we are painting all the offices,lounge,work out areas,rec areas & common bathrooms.
We will have completed 2 floors in two weeks.Colors alternate about every 100 feet with a metalic faux expressions at the end of each hall.
There are six hallways, the link of the ones in the picture, per floor. 680 doors:thumbsup:

Do you just have one guy working for 3 months in there? He should be able to wrap up the doors and frames by then no? Lol.

Nice gig, Pricing a 14 story building myself right now. Corridors, fire doors and frames.

1 of my supervisor was at Sherwin William's and heard the project manager asking the guy at the counter about good painters he could call. He followed him outside and gave him a card. He called that day.
I met with him 2 days later,gave him our proposal that night,had the job the next day.
He said he had 3 other guys out a week before me that had not even submitted a proposal yet so that pretty much sealed the deal.

They are remodeling all the offices,rec room,gym,etc..as well. Just got confirmation on that additional $30,000

Are these apartments or condos?

It's rare to get worthwhile leads from property managers, yet I found one.

It helps if you have cheap labor.

Did you give your supervisor a bonus?

My guys are always upselling and keeping an ear to the ground for opportunities
I think it is great for your companys moral to offer them bonus' on such great leads, and upselling. You can't always be around to take care of additional work you otherwise might not get, so why not reward loyal employees with a bonus for looking out for the companies best interest!
