You said at 8:50 that you got there on the 'prep day' at about 5 o'clock, and it took about 3 hours.
is this AM or PM? what is the standard hours for a painter in Idaho?

Is there any way to get the Didsto Sketch program to output the area of the enclosed and sketched area?
Also, just crunch numbers. Measuring roofs, interior and exteriors for, ceiling, wall and roof painting would be a breeze if this was possible.

I can't reply to an individual person on this video. However,@Mark Turner, if you want to go over previously painted, wash thoroughly with Sodium Hypochlorite, Trisodium Phosphate, and soap jetted through a pressure washer, and rinse. Apply a primer depending on what paint is existing. RockCote Acrybond would be great. Go over with something like Dulux AcraTex Sponge Fine or RockCote Poly White. Paint with two coats of Dulux 955 or Weathershield, or RC Armour or Ecostyle.
Dulux and RockCote are the two best renders I have used, both bagged and acrylic.

Be careful using acrylic outside if you are inexperienced, in summer you have maximum of maybe 10minutes some days to trowel it on and float it off. Start on small walls and build up.
Acrylic render, pretty much as a rule, you can't patch it. It you have a defect, generally you will have to re-skimcoat the whole wall. Bagged render patches beautifully.

Be careful painting acrylic render too. Depending on the finish, it may have a texture and top coat similar to maybe an AeroBar, or pumice stone. Picture framing can happen really quickly and easily if you are not careful.
Painting cementitious render is easy and picture framing is rare, even on havy textures like bagging and lambs wool mitt textures.

What spray gun is that in the video, a HVLP? We usually paint our doors standing up, zig zagged tied with binders across the top and raised on 1"x1" on the base off the ground. We then spray both sides at once with a 312 RacX tip comes up quite nice, however it is a lot of time to set up the airless for a few doors. I have been looking at HVLP, however I already have conventional suction feed pot guns.
How do you find HVLP vs conventional suction feed pot guns?

Why did you use oil rather than exterior acrylic.
Properly primed, exterior acrylic will bond to metal just as good as oil. And it dries quicker.

Did you mean to write "metal has started to oxidize"? Or did you mean to write "paint" instead? That is a serious question; I'm not being smart. Thanks. I like your channel.

lol, mainly beacue I want to drive up the popularity of Google +. While me by myself wont make much of a difference. It is still a start. Also, Google is the monolithic monster of choice over Apple, Microsoft, and Facebook.

Damn text books are expensive, significantly cheaper from overseas though, even with rather hefty postage.

Highly authentic Thai food. Arguably the best Thai in the whole Redlands area.
