We’re going to try something here. A few weeks ago I decided that our dumpsters were looking a little shabby and were all in need of new paint and signs just to spruce them up a little. Well, here’s the deal, while I was working this morning (before the heat got too bad) that we should hold a contest to see who could get the closest to guessing how many hours it takes a Raleigh Remodeler to paint a dumpster.
1. Power wash dumpster complete inside and out
2. Chip, grind, sand and otherwise prepare the surfaces to be painted (inside and out but not the underside)
3. Spot prime all the rusty areas
4. Paint two coats of Rustoleum on everything
5. Clean up

I don’t know the actual number yet, because I haven’t finished the project. I did a preliminary estimate of the hours and was not very good at anticipating either – I’m already over the estimate and still have to paint the inside two coats and the outside one coat.
