    I know that prep time is not included in the thirty minutes. i am never organized when painting. lots of good tips here. thanks

    Yes! I have always felt like one heavy coat is as good as two, and his point is with getting the prepping out of the way, there is no reason it needs to take two to three days to paint a room!

      Multiple coats provide a much better bonding situation and a slightly quicker cure. Also, people(homeowners or renters) that are Not painting for a living will run into "thick" paint issues, that is, runs etc. Slows down the job. Instead of just "roll & go" you put in extra labor time continually looking back and going back to fix the issues you create.
