Thanks for the welcome everyone. I'm very used to the pulling and tuging. I'm usually a moderator amidst Painting Contractors, GC'c, Architects, Designers and Property Managers. Many times all of the above involved in the same project, at the same time.

Welcome Vandi and Scott!  :D

Try to stick around here guys. There are some great people here and a HUGE WEALTH OF INFORMATION from people who really know their sh**

Plus they're pretty cool to boot, so anyway, again, welcome to the board.

Cheers!

Hi guys and gals, I'm a full time professional painter and decorator from Kent, England. I've been working for myself now for about four and a half years and do pretty much every kind of work from small domestic to large commercial and construction site work. I came across this forum recently while asking around for good advice regarding spraying technique, I got myself an airless machine in september last year but finding other users is pretty rare this side of the pond so I was told the best people to ask were you happy fellows!

Looking forward to picking your brains,

Richard

Welcome Richard. Hope we can help you out any way we can. I don't spray so I can't help you out there.

Welcome new members!

Vandi - I too look forward to picking your brain from time to time.

Richard - I lived in Chatham many years ago (one town down the Medway from Rochester).  Whereabouts are you within Kent?

Good morning,
New to the site so I thought I would check in.  Painting in Ventura for 25 years now.  Homes, businesses and customs mostly.

Good afternoon,

Recently I got the idea of doing repaint jobs for property managers. I figured this would be a good way of inducting myself into the world of a contract painting while doing a good job but not having the exptectations of being perfect one would expect in new home construction.

I've been a web designer now since 2001 and it does not provide me with the same satisfaction it used to. The bonus is that I can market myself with a kick-ass website which is something few local painters have done and I can get myself on the first page of Google for my city pretty easily with my knowlege.

I'm glad I found this website - I've got a lot to learn!

Yes , yes you do. Painting is nothing like web design.  If you really want to pursue painting , find someone who is good at it and work for them. It used to be called apprenticeship.
  Pants and a brush do not make a painter.
 JMO,  YMMV.
