Gave my painter 3 Gals of Rosco Black TV Paint (900 SF of coverage) for him to paint the ceiling and soffits (~ 535 SF). He calls me to tell me he ran out of paint and still needs to do the bottom of the soffits (~160 SF). I know I should have stayed home...
Despite his claims of 30 years experience.....He didn't even bother reading the instructions in the can.....and didn't dilute the paint at all. I see some of you are diluting up to 1:1. Instructions call for up to 10% water. He went all in with a spray gun
Don't get me wrong....the ceiling looks fantastic. But it seems like this was the equivalent of 3 coats if he had rolled it... Had to order 3 more gallons just in case.....For 535 SF, we are going to go through 5 Gallons of paint.....is it just me or this seems a little ridiculous?
