    Ok lads - post your biggest regular job and how long it takes you! If you want to you can say how much £ you get for it, but that's obviously your prerogative :D

    I do a 55ft high - literally all glass building and it's a quarterly job that takes me on my own 2 whole days 9am - 5pm. I do it using a Gardiners Super Max and a super lite extreme wide brush. Bloody hard work I tell ya ;)

    My biggest domestic job takes about 4-5 hours, absolutely massive pre victorian house, each panel needs hand finishing because the paint work is slightly flakey. Not declaring how much I take for it ;)
