An alternative to using the airless for all your spraying needs is an HVLP fine finishes sprayer. Painting contractors are likely to be the ones to benefit from this fine finish technology because to have the right setup it takes some money, but more importantly you need experience to be able to get the desired results because of the diversity of machines, and the settings on each gun is different and you need to know how to adjust air, material & fan to achieve perfection. But once you do have this ability it is a great way to paint many things with factory-like results.

I have tried to get a setup for fine finishes that will spray just about any coating quckly and perfectly. The ability to spray trim easily and avoid brush marks is definitely something professional painting contractors can use to sell their work. But the right rig can be elusive.The turbine is essential because that is the heart of your HVLP spraying capabilities. The one I just acquired is 4 stage, which is capable of pushing thicker paint like latex without having to thin too much thereby negating the fine finish look you are going for. It can also swith to using just 2 of the stages when spraying solvent based products so overspray is lessened. It does not matter that you have bought a gun marked HVLP if you do not have the right turbine. High

Volume Low Pressure(HVLP) is specifically for less overspray. If you are hooking up a HVLP gun to a conventional air compressor it is not HVLP. The wider hose on a turbine sends more volume of air with less pressure. That in turn lessens overspray and increases the transfer efficiency rate. (Bigger number the better because it means that is how much of the paint that you are spraying is attaching to the surface you are spraying, and not bouncing off!)

With this spraying technology we can bring the control over making factory finishes

Responsibilities & Ethics as Painting Contractors

Featured

Painting Contractor Ethics

In any profession, there are many issues to be faced. This is especially true in the case of responsibilities & ethics as a contractor, both legally and personally. Each state has its own contractor agency, which specifically spells out the legal ramifications of such a profession.

//www.ethics.state.fl.us/

Laws state that a person in this profession must not only follow all applicable laws, standards, and regulations, but perform their work in good faith, as well. They must be properly licensed and have the required liability and workers compensation insurance.

Contractors are also responsible for the conduct and abilities of any employees or sub-contractors under their supervision and must secure all permits, authorizations, or licenses required. They are obligated to keep confidential restricted information, plans, drawings, documents, and data.

The ethical standards of contractors refers to personal actions and involves their moral judgment, which can cover a wide ground. Many things can be done that are ‘under the table’ and illegal, always with a risk of being caught. This would be things like bribing officials, adding on hours not worked, adding on extra cost of materials, hiring underage workers and so forth.

On a personal basis, how contractors treat a client, on something such as a residence, also involves ethics. It is very simple to take advantage of a homeowner who is unfamiliar with contacting people to do remodeling and other such work.

An honest person will quote reasonable prices and not use inferior materials. They will not only guarantee their work but also be proud of the finished product.

The responsibilities & ethics of a contractor depend on the character of the person involved. Fortunately, the majority of people in this business are well aware of their responsibilities and are reliable as well as honest. Those who are not will soon find themselves out of the contracting business.

Finding The Right Employees

 

Finding The Right Employees

A subject near and dear to my heart is the ongoing search finding the right employees for the elusive employee with a work ethic. There are certainly as many reasons someone does not fit correctly with the company as there are applicants. In fact I think someone is still making a list of reasons and constantly updating it and uploading it for perspective employees to use for reasons it won’t work out.

Finding the right employees painting in Port Orange

After working for myself and with myself for the better part of my life it seemed to be that it should be just as easy finding the right employees/ painters that like to work at least as much as myself but to my dismay it seems this elusive employee who will always do what he says he/ she is going to do is an endangered species.

Comically, come on! There arent any people who actually ‘like’ to work anymore? There is no finding the right employees?

Seriously, this is a problem that can easily make or break a business and for my dime my money is on break after trying to find any responsible help that cares at least half as much as I do about my business. I had an opportunity about ten years ago to go from my one man business to running a business with employees to make the business model a successful one.

There are about as many reasons for this as people you ask, but I didn’t think I had to make 50.00hr to be paid what you’re worth, like most career painters. No matter how little they actually know about what it truly takes to run a legal, profitable business. The ‘opportunity’ I had was when the internet, my experience and work ethic became stronger than my will to evade responsibility. When all the work I’d put into what started out as my one page website turned into a 200 page website that was ranked toward the top of the rankings of searches made by perspective customers.

And this came at the time when after the housing market crashed no one including myself had ANY work for an extended period. It made me finally in a position to show many more people how good my painting skills really were. And if it took going the extra mile then I would go the extra ten miles. Even jobs that I do from time to time that can actually cost me money to do have worth in word of mouth advertising. Nothing works better than just having a happy customer when I leave.

This worked so well I could hire 6, or 12 people to paint with all the work that was out there. Well the point is after close to ten years of trying to find good help I have concluded that it is easier and more profitable to do the work myself. And in my case two others that do actually want to work with me towards the same end. As much as anyone is in this for the money I’d say look elsewhere for that job. But if you love the work itself, and I do so much more than running a business, then you can be very proud of what you’ve learned over the years, And sleep well at night without a handful of ambien.
