When making your estimate for exterior work take a
sharp object with you such as a screw driver
and dig it in around the window sills and
door frames to see if there is any
rotten timber that need major filling or
even replacing. If you miss fail to add
this work to your estimate you may
end up doing the repairs for nothing!!

Painting exterior windows at ground level is
much quicker and easier than working off a
ladder 2 or 3 floors higher. It takes
a lot of extra time to position your
ladder safely and keep going up and
down different materials, It may even be a
2 man job. You must charge at
least twice the rate for high ladder work.

On a perfectly prepared surface, painting is
the quick and easy part, almost anyone
could do it. It's the preparation that makes
the difference between a good job and a
bad one. Preparation which includes, scraping down
filling and sanding takes up most of
the time. This preparation time must account
for most of the cost of your estimate.
When the painting contractor arrives to tender
his estimate follow these guidelines. Explain clearly
how you want the decorating done,leaving
nothing out. Your choice of colors and materials,
does he supply them or you. Which option
is the cheapest? Tell the painter you require
a price for the whole job, no
day-work basis. Get 2 more estimates

Every year there is a mad rush to
get decorating work finished for the Christmas
holidays. November brings a mad rush and
painters are usually very busy, and they
should take full advantage of this because
after Christmas we enter the dreaded KIPPER SEASON,
meaning everybody seems to go to sleep
and work can be very thin on the ground. If a painter is cheaper than others who
survey their home, it will mean nothing if he
turns up smelling of booze, because the
client will associate this with being unprofessional
and sloppy, not matter how good a
painter they may be. They would far
sooner choose a more expensive painter that
presents themselves in a clean business like manner.
Painters when asked to give a price
for painting, will estimate how long from
experience the work will take to complete.
Say they envisage a room will take
three days, they multiply this by their
day work charge, plus materials Then they
may add One day for cleaning and
clearing everything off the job. The total
might typically be 4 days x 120
pounds = 480 pounds, without materials.
