Finished a Rental Unit in Erlanger Ky. A 3 Bedroom townhome that one of My Painters has been working on this week.
In the middle of Decemebr we slow down a bit because Of Christmas. And so apartment painting and or painting work from real estate investors is welcome.
I did not take any pictures because apartment turnover painting before and after pictures are really not that impressive. Unless the unit is INSANELY bad.
Basically your just putting walls back the same color they were. And so the end results are never anything that will blow you away
It is more just covering up things that you really can't see in pictures. Like finger prints and marks on the walls.
Property Management firms will stick with one color scheme for decades or longer. Reason being it creates a situation that helps them get a better price for paint , because they can buy it in bulk from a supplier and there is no surprises it's always the same exact order basically. This cuts down on the cost passed down to them from paint companies.
Also they stay with the same color scheme to keep their units easy to turn .... it's way easier to paint walls the same color than it is to change them. This gets them really low price points from painters. Also often if a unit is not that bad, they can save money and have a maintenance tech blend out dirty spots or a painter do it. If they have a good relationship with a longterm painter.
I did snap a very short video of ceiling painting that i did myself , in one apartment that we recently painted . This particular rental unit we missed a few spots when we painted the ceilings.
So they called and asked if we could come and touch up the missed spots. ( only 2)
I went out and repainted all the ceilings in the apartment again.
And I feel that all apartment managers and owners and even real estate investors want out of a painting contractor , someone who will do a decent job and if they miss something or do something wrong , for them to come back out and remedy that mistake quickly.
This type of work will not bring you huge profit margins, but it's great to have a few places like this because its steady money for a painter.
When they get a move out, they call and give you the keys and you paint it. In between those times when they dont need help your doing your higher paying RESIDENTIAL work. If things slow down. You can usually count on a couple units a month from a apartment complex to ensure you dont go completely bust.
Just dont ever back burner them. Is a big key to as well. They need their units turned quickly so they are not sitting vacant.

The Dreaded ugly ‘ Unfinished Basement Ceiling’. Many Homeowners and Business Owners alike have had to face the decision and weigh the options available to finish these eye soars. And the options to finish these are endless, there exist so many ceiling systems out there _ It is almost a endless supply of options. Traditional Finishing with drywall and then painting is without a doubt the most common way to get the job done. Then you also have drop ceilings with a variety of materials from ugly foam tiles to elaborate silver and gold plated tiles and everything in between. Don't forget about all the Specialty hybrid and miracle solutions sold by various Companies and Contractors Nationwide. ✳✳✳✳🔼🔼🔼🔼✳✳✳✳✳🔼🔼🔼🔼✳✳✳ In this Blog Post I'm Going to tell you about a option you may not be considering. And probably should! I'll admit I may be a bit biased being a professional painter. However I feel I can make a strong Case for this Option. Im t
Today I finished the Bathroom ceiling REPLACEMENT And Painting job in Union, Kentucky. Here is a Picture of the final product. Tough day, unfortunately the homeowners were in a hurry to leave for the evening and I forgot to take pictures of the bathroom that I completely repainted as well. 🎨🙄 This was additional work from my "Liquid Ceiling" basement painting project. So this was just kind of a small add on project. 💎💎❗❗❗💎💎💎❗❗💎💎❗❗💎❗💎💎 Lets talk about why I had to refinish this ceiling anyways... Mildew Growth....... If this is your first time on my blog and you didnt read the post directly before this. Then this blog post will maybe not make sense too you. Go read it - Here .......... MILDEW Growth had overtaken this bathroom ceiling. So badly that it was abated. (Removed) This is not uncommon. Although it is possible to clean and remove and or safely cover mildew. For whatever reason th
If your deck boards have a bunch of goo and what looks like sap coming out of them . Your not alone❗ I want you to know that it is called "pitch" - your deck boards have "pitch". The goo or " pitch " is usually generically called by most people in my kneck of the woods - "sap". "Sap" comes from a live tree. The difference is - "pitch" is the correct terminology to use once the wood is dead. The reason for this- I did not dig that deep into the subject if I'm being honest ❗😁 I can however shed some light on why it happens. Typically premium lumber is sent through a process that solidifies this goo down inside the board and that solidification keeps it from ever coming to the surface . In fact this is one of the major reasons we treat our lumber. But just like in every industry and every production process. You will have a few that get through with less than stellar treatment. If they catch them , maybe
