The question proposed generally has too many variables and is not specific enough to provide the specific response suggested for all project types and surface preparations. The answer to the proposed question depends type of repainting project and on the level of surface preparation specified and If it includes time to design, install and remove containments. In general a range of 30-40% time is typically spent on most full or zone recoating projects for surface preparation and provided required preliminary SP -1 requirements are specified and performed for all project types and surface preparations. Other type projects spot painting and overcoating projects surface preparation time is generally less than 30-40% of the time spent.
