My guys just finished this interior painting project in Clearwater Florida Today.We had 4 guys here for 2 weeks. A ton of prep work!
I don't think a single nail was set or anything caulked in the whole house. Home owners love it.They found us on Angie's list and are going to add to our list of great reviews.

Another great job Aaron! I really liked the audio commentary. Too bad you did not get before pics, sounds like it was a mess before!

you billed for 320 hours? 40hrs per man, per week?

40hrs X 4 men = 160hrs X 2 = 320 billed hours

For a repaint?!:blink:

No,I do not provide proposals by the hour This job was not done by the hour.99% of all our projects are by the job except for T & M on additional work.
And yes there are allot of hours on many of our repaints.This is nothing new for us.:thumbsup:

I wasn't really asking if you billed T and M.

but was asking if thats how many man hours you had in it. Still seems like a crazy amount of time for a 3 bed house. I know there were alot of stuff beyond just painting. I'm probably not taking it all in and I didn't see how bad it was to begin with.

How can you make blanket statements of what it would take when you have no idea the scope of work?
I'm just giving you crap.

I said previously that I'm probably overlooking stuff that you mentioned. You said you had wallpaper removal, textured a wall and of course all the trim with nail setting and caulk.

And there were no before pictures to have a sense of the overall scope.

Plus the quality looks wonderful which does take more time than a blow and go.

Looks great btw:thumbsup:

Depends on the quality of work. A 10-15K complete interior repaint (w/o cabinets) is not uncommon around here. Now of course as anywhere else there are always going to be guys who will come in waaaay lower. Ironically, none of those guys ever last long. And those prices would be without all the extra work mentioned in the video. Removing popcorn? Retexturing? Settiing nails? That type of work takes time.
