The common mistake of the owner of a
painting company is that I am a
master painter and decorator that is all
that matters, the business side will take
care of itself. The fact is most
successful painting contractors wear a suit and
not overalls, they never pick up a brush
and if they did they would in all
probability be useless. The companies money is
largely made by tendering and winning profitable
job estimates.

Painters will encounter some customers who judge a
painting contractor on the price of the
estimate he submits for the work. They
seem to think there is a great
difference in ability from a cheap painter
and one that charges the proper rate.
A painter is no different from any
other profession. How do you start to
compare the difference between a guy who
promises the world takes a deposit and
vanishes into thin air for two or
three weeks, with one that never seems
to stop work until the job is completed
to your complete satisfaction.

Lots of painters do not charge on their
estimate for replacing door, window and wall
furniture but this is a necessary part of
the job. You can hardly do a clean
job without removing these items. I have
seen painters leave a finished job with
fittings smothered in paint!! It might you say
only take about a hour or so but,
at the end of a year it will add
up to several hundreds of pounds, money
that you have worked hard for.

Your estimate may be lower than your competitor
but he gets the work. Everyone has their own
priorities and the cost of the work may
not be top of the list for some.
Tidy work, good time keeping, references from former
clients, insurance, a nice clean vehicle and your
appearance, do you look trustworthy?

Lots of times mainly on exterior work preparation
can cost way more than the painting itself.
A house exterior that needs very little preparation
could be painted in a day. A
property with rotten woodwork and flaky masonry
will take much longer and must be estimated
for repairs, materials, extra paint and
clean-up time.

Its nigh on impossible to carry out decorating
and not make some mess. Rubbing down
walls and woodwork causes dust, that's acceptable
but clean it up and spend plenty
of time doing it. This end of job
cleaning is often overlooked when submitting you
estimate and must be factored in. If
the room takes a day to paint
charge 1 day for cleaning-up.

Leaving items off of a estimate when calculating
the price will cost you money. Over a year this
will amount to a large sum of wasted
money. Money which would have given you and
your family some nice holidays in the sun.
If a client ask for a complete job
charge for a complete job.
