Cost of a Good Painter

Prospective customers very often get several painters to
tender estimates. They shop around. A painter
would of course find it useful to
know the competitions bids, but should not
base his price on theirs because their
overheads are bound to be different from his.
Don't be afraid to tender a high price
if the job warrants it. If your
company has a good reputation customers will
take that into account.

Your best paint estimate should be a one
of a kind for that particular job.
It must take into account your companies present
productivity, price of materials, labor, profits and
overheads. There is no book or software
that can take into account all the
wildly different conditions found in paint estimating
work. Use you judgment which will increase
over time.

A simple exercise to find out how much
it will cost to hire a professional
decorator is.. Wait till you see a
painter working on a property down your
street. Ask him if he does private
work!! I know painters and this will
be music to his ears. Tell him what
you want done, and where you live. The
beauty about this way to hire a
great painter is it won't cost a
penny in advertising or phone calls and it cuts
out that expensive middle man.

If the paint job is complicated the
painter may ask if he can do it
on a day-work rate. This is not
a good deal for the householder as there
is no telling what the eventual cost
will be. Insist on a price for
the whole job. Get an estimate from
another painter and compare the two.
They may differ greatly.

Cost of a Good Painter

It is only natural for folk to feel
a little apprehensive when inviting a tradesman
or women to call around to your home
and give an estimate for decorating, that
is why some try to get an
estimate over the phone. There is no
way this can be done, the work
has to be seen. If you feel uneasy
about people calling have someone else in
the property for moral support and company.

Who gives the estimate has a huge bearing
on the cost. A self employed painter
who may be temporally out of work will be
very happy to do your private work,
His outgoings are low and he is
able to paint a simple room without
complex trim for about £130 - £195. If
you hire a proper contractor with their
high overheads - you will pay 3-4
times that amount.

The US Department of Labor statistics says
that 80% of all small businesses fail within the
first five years. Of the remaining, 80% of
them go out of business in the next
5 years. So at the end of ten
years only 4% are still in business.
Sadly to say most painting contractors fall
into this statistic.
