There is no ready made price that fits
every job why!! Because in all my
years of pricing work I have never
come across two jobs that one estimate
would be the same for. The main
reason for this is the size, shape,
condition, location, labor and materials cost for
different rooms and buildings. Painting estimates should be
be customized for each job.

Did you up your estimate price or did
you just forget about the price increases
and absorb the loss? If your business
doesn't stay current with the latest price
increases when doing their estimates, you are
bound to lose cash. Pass on price
increases now don't wait till the end of
the year. Why pay throughout the year
for your customers jobs.

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.

Estimating time for preparation work can be very
tricky and requires special consideration If a
room has wallpaper that needs stripping it may
take you 20 minutes to remove or all day.
There may be several papers on the wall
and some could be washable which will
require a steam stripper which you may
have to hire. When the paper is
removed the walls could need a lot of
filling and sanding down. Conclusion you should
estimate wall paper stripping at 8 hours
per medium sized room.

If you have a good idea how long it
takes you to do the actual painting job,
and how many total hours it takes.
A quick and reasonably accurate system for estimating
the whole job is to multiply by.1 or.2
or what you think is the average time
it will take you to: Set up
the job, clean up when finished.

Business after Christmas is always slow. No one
it seem wants any work done till the
Spring time. So what is the answer?
Do you take advantage of this lull to
learn the skills of a paint estimator or
fall back on the only sales tactic
you know, they drop their prices!! This to
them is a master stroke. What happens
next is their competitors do the same to
try and secure the same contract at
a much lower loss making price.

answer that question you need to know how to
estimate work. Before we can come up with a
good estimate, how long will it take
your men to paint individual items, such
as ceilings, walls, windows, door frames and
doors, skirting. Add all the times it
takes to paint these items together.
