We got an old house exterior to paint. All the condition is every well, owner just wanna to refresh the house looking.
First problem, you want to do a good job, but how good? Sand all the timber deeply or slightly? Swap the dust? Or use press washing machine to wash the whole house? The house is already looks good , how to make it more fresh? And owner wants the same color.
Somebody say, it depends on the price I quote. That’s true. We quoted a not bad price, even enough for sand them all over and apply undercoat on it.
But is that necessary? The house was painted 10 years ago, everything is in good condition, no peeling, no cracking, and even no fade.

Is it a good deal to give one more coat and go away, or start from sanding and pretend the house is a new house?
Sometime I stuck there, good chance to make money? Or good chance to ask your conscience?
