Springtime Again…

It wont be long before its spring, and summer in Central Florida where everyday is the same routine. One of the reasons I started painting when I was a young man was I loved working outside. I loved the sun and heat. As long as there was plenty to drink and a hose around to cool down.

It will be any day we will be up in the 90 degree and above range and it will rain everyday at the same time. I can write that into the contract it is so regular.

And it is the time of year that homeowners decide to paint! We are constantly busy and behind schedule. and I just have to hope homeowners understand that the weather is out of my control! I have had a few that have become so tired of the delays caused by the weather they would become angry with me.

After 35 years of doing this I am happy to have job security. And when it’s busy theoretically I can choose the projects I want to work on and the ones that challenge me. Having a smaller more dependable crew certainly reduces the stress of being responsible for many employees and their family’s when things don’t go as planned.

Things have certainly changed a lot in that regard over the past 35 years. But I still look forward to this time of year when it’s always fun to be outside and close to the water.
