    Thinking of adding line painting to my current sealcoating business and was wondering if there is a forum for this anywhere? I was just wondering about pricing , such as how much people were charging per foot and small lots?
    Thanks for amy input if any of you out there can help out with this.

    I don't understand why people won't talk about it? what's the big deal, we know approx prices for sealcoating, so why not line painting? Any advice on Water based vs. Oil Paint? Thanks for your input Shep, checked out that site quickly as I didn't have much time but seems like a pretty good site, I'll have a better look today.

    For me, I only use latex on freshly sealed lots. Oil base on all others. In the cold, Latex takes a long time to dry, we don't like to wait for paint to dry ( like to cross a line, etc) so I mostly use Oil. My pricing is per foot, but then is determined by the line size, as a 6" line uses more paint then a 4" line. Stencils are by the stencil, based on time. Hope this helps, ask away if you need more info. THere is a good info area, there @ PLP, on the main page.
