He's talking all new. Your blending in at the top of your existing wall is the time consuming part that you obviously don't quite comprehend. There is a huge difference between new and redo. For crying out loud! Like trying to match a floor from an existing room to a new area. Easy as pie, isn't it?

BTW, this fellows first post was to ask how much to bid this, like we're supposed to get out our calculator and figure a bid for him. My/our standard answer should be 20k if it's 350 sheets or 10,000.
