Sept,Oct,and Nov is when you want to start getting your winter schedule booked. If ya have some knowledge repairing pipes and drywall, we are getting lots of calls for frozen pipe repair and of course drywall repair leading to painting the complete room. Also, freezing gutters leads to inside ceiling and wall repair. You may wanna become friends with a roofer and plumber, networking goes a long way:yes:dose any one know what to do durring winter to get some good inside jobs
So how many folks a week did you disconnect a week to make $2000 a week?In words as eloquent as Beavis or Butthead could cite.. Winter sucks.
I gave up chasing winter work. When two of my guys that were union painters moved on my days of offering interior painting left with them. If you have ladders and a truck, which I assume are the bare essentials for a painter, look into subcontracting for a cable company doing collections/disconnects. I did it my first year in residential (I had a bucket truck) and was making between $1300-$2000 per week.
