TIPS & TRICKS

Best KNEE PADS for Painters

I used to play volleyball when I was in High School.

So a few weeks ago, I was sorting through old boxes and found these volleyball pads that hadn't been used in years (even decades lol).

So I asked Gino if he'd want them since I knew his wife still plays on occasion.

But when he took them, it wasn't to give to his wife (since she already had a pair)... Gino had something else in mind.

The following day Gino tested those volleyball pads to see if they'd work well as knee pads for painting.

After a few tests, here's what Gino discovered...

When you wear them directly on your skin (which is how those pads were designed to be worn), you get a few benefits:

  • They do not move up or down when you bend your legs and move around
  • You can't see them since they end up being under your pants
  • And because they are under your pants, the pants are free to naturally move which makes it very comfortable to wear for long periods of time
  • And of course, it makes painting baseboards and...

The price TRIPLED because of the Colors...

Years ago, I remember being hired to repaint the offices at this local radio station.

The original price came at around $4000 and we were hired to do the work...  HOWEVER

Once the Interior Decorator finished the Color Consultation, the end result was that they had choosen to go with 22 DIFFERENT COLORS... and most of those colors were yellows, oranges and bright reds.

Let's just say that this changed EVERYTHING!

So what's the lesson?

If you're a PAINTER... you need to make sure your quote specifies the number of coats... and the number of colors that are allowed for the price given.

If you're a HOMEOWNER... you need to be aware of this possibility and make sure to check with your Painting Contractor to see if the Colors that are being considered will have an impact on the price.

And if you're a COLOR CONSULTANT... you need to be aware of this possibility as well and work with the Painting Contractor so that together you can help your...
