Re: painting aint easy


When tape pulls off paint it can be bad prep, cheap paint, old paint, paint not fully cured, and/or you are using the wrong tape and it has too much grip. We are doing a job now that has damaged edges because someone decided to tape off the walls and then do the trim. Most of the house was done in flat paint 12 years ago and it couldn't handle tape. It took a lot of time to fix.

Re: painting aint easy


Nothing like walking a mile in another man's shoes to get a better perspective. I've been in this paint slinging business for close to 40 years and I appreciate Ryansdad's tip of the hat. Having been in the trades this long, I still marvel watching the skills of the other trades. Carpenters, drywallers, plumbers, etc. The good ones make it seem easy and effortless until you try it yourself.

And @chrisn , I tried paperhanging once in my own house about 35 years ago.
Never again, man. Never.

Agreed. I just painted my new kitchen cabinets, whatever is charged for a good job probably isn't enough.

My dh and I can do many things in the home ourselves. Mostly because we research the heck out of them before starting and having a general skill set to start with and we don't do anything quickly. Your comments made me laugh because of his recent experience at the permit office. We have taken about 5 years to complete our kitchen. He needed to extend our recent permit. All the women in the office looked at him smiled and asked if he was still married. He has already informed me I am coming along next time he has to go. We each have our diy jobs. He is the carpenter and plumber, I paint and other misc.

I have the utmost respect for all the trades in knowing what it takes to do a job properly.
