So I need a painter

To hit a rental after the 1st.


And I forgot painter protocol. :gary:


Dry gin goes with interior latex? Yep. When you answer the phone regarding a painting job I have for you, try not to burp your beer into the mouthpiece when you slur your words about how good of a painter you've become. You don't know more about painting than I do, trust me. Stick to what you know best fella, which is I don't know... asking the DMV for forgiveness with your last DUI so you can legally transport your drunk ass to work.


What is it about painters that goes hand in hand with drunkenness? Chemical exposure? Hot temperatures? Mindless labor? Your daddy was a painter when he hit you over the head with a whiskey bottle?

FK.

My painter/drywall/tile/handyman drives 45 min each way home for lunch everyday. I'm thinking I should just find him a dealer on my side of town


He looked at my bathroom tile and told me I did a really good job on it. I reminded him he did it a year earlier

Mindless goons like the OP saying "Missed a spot, har har har" 27 times a day.

That's what makes us drink.

If I had to get up every morning and go paint something, I'd paint the walls with my brain matter. Prior to that choice though, I'm sure heavy alcohol use would be attempted.

roofers too.

took me 4 months to find someone to climb onto my mother in laws roof and redo the flashing around the chimney.
some showed up, looked, never contacted again, most didn't show. The ones that did show looked awfully methy.


ended up hiring a foreigner. nice guy, from hungary, had experience with copper flashing and slate roofs. about the only one I found.

I know, he's here stealing american jobs that they don't want to do.

My first job in the trades when I was 17, was floating walls and painting them. I know better than to sit on the shoulders of any fucking painter. You're going to have to remit excuse no 2 as soon as your done with your Stella.

I found a guy fresh from Mexico to paint my ceilings. Half the price of anyone else. Did it all with his wife. I couldn't wait to hire him for my new house and apparently everyone else discovered him and he's booked 3 months out and doubled his prices.

I hired a guy several years ago to do stone on a fireplace. Decent work, but the first day was his last because reasons. Reasons being not showing up for day 2 or any other...

I asked him if he knew anyone that could float 2 walls in the den for me. It was built adjacent to a garage (exterior stucco, Santa Barbara style that was wavy) and he told me of a guy that's good at it. I said great, have him show up tmrw. He showed up (stone guy did not) and as soon as I handed him a 24" blade, 14" blade, and an 8" knife with corresponding trays, he looked at me with a quizzical glance and said "show me how to do it"

I showed him, he didn't last 2 hrs before he said he couldn't do it.


Next.

edit; these people (white folk) save me money. I finished the stone fireplace and floated the walls my own self. Bastids.

Many years ago I figured out it was cheaper (and more enjoyable) to drink while doing those dumb jobs instead of hiring out

Painters, drywallers, and roofers, seem to be jobs you can do drunk or stoned.

Every drywaller I've hired has been a drunk or stoner, every painter has been a drunk, stoner, or crazy. Roofers just seems to be mostly drunks. But they all seem to do passable work, so whatever.

Try spending three days staining and lacquering a set of cabinets, only to have the lowers wiped out because the neanderthal wood butchers couldn't be bothered to take off their tool belts while installing the pulls.

Ditto doorways.

People walking up and sticking their hand into the wet paint then asking "Is this wet?"

Being the only trade responsible for fixing other peoples messes - Electricians who decide to change the fluids in their truck, then install finish trims.

And my personal favorite, trade stackers. GC - "Hey, I know I told you the house is yours, but do you mind if the tile guy and trim crew set up cut stations in the rooms you just painted?"


Hows that, hefe?

I'm generally game for everything

but climbing onto a reasonably steep (8:12ish) clay tile roof and repairing a chimney seemed like a real bad idea. plus the roof flashing has already been hackfucked by the people previously hired a few years ago. Tons of silicon, some wierd ass cap they built from the ridge down to the chimney in aluminum. Just a mess I didn't want to deal with.

dude wasn't cheap, but he fixed the chimney, repaired every broken tile, used nothing but copper and copper nails. shit should last another 100 years with proper maintenance.

Not bad, not bad at all. I've been in those positions, but with a slight alteration on the theme. Those cabinet indentations from chisels in a pouch, the chopsaw bench in a freshly painted room, and the greasy paw prints on trim? Were all from yours truly because I work on everything at once.


Cuts down on boredom and physical fatigue. I've learned how to compensate for using every skill I have at once, whenever I can. Mistakes happen though.


I will spray satin poly only on cabinets anymore. Danish oil rub as well. No thank you on lacquer gigs. I don't envy you.

Because like drywalling and roofing, its not a career, it's a fallback for when you're not in jail, or doing shit you should be in jail for. Nature of the trade.

What shape is the siding in?

How many colors?

Caulk just the freeze blocks or entire overhang?

Bullshit. We clean up everybody's mess, painters included. The paint huffers that wash their shit out in freshly mulched beds drive me nuts. They can see it's finished, and make a mess anyway.

More on topic, I will not paint my own stuff sober and the good painters I know smoke in the morning and drink in the afternoon. We used to stop for gas every morning next to a Sherwin Williams store. Every painter was buying a 12 pack every day. It baffles me why the amigos like Bud Light so much.
