Best Way to Repaint Oil-Based Surfaces
My first 9 years (as a professional painter) I painted in California for my Dad. It was very rare for us to use oil on anything as just about every home we did was already latex and there are so many restrictions on oil based-paints and primers there. 3 years ago I moved to Louisville, KY with my fiancee and started up my own business... One of my biggest learning curves was almost every house here is painted with oil! It took me forever to master using it, figure out the pricing for how long it takes (because it applies so slowly) and how expensive it gets having to throw away my brushes after because it takes too long to clean! Not to mention it smells. It's sticky, messy and takes FOREVER to dry. Just an all around pain. I finally got smart and joined paint groups online and did research for alternatives. I was very lucky to find your company! I was skeptical and did many tests on old furniture before trying it on a client's home. It passed every test and has continued to do so! Thank you so much for an incredible product that saves me so much time, money and hassle! I am about to re-order right now to have it on hand for the next time I need it, which will be soon."
