Cost of Painting a Room

Prices for interior estimates can vary widely from
painter to painter, so obtain 2-3 to get
the average cost. In general a price for
the whole job is better than a day-work
rate as you know what the final cost will
be, and you don't have to watch
the painters time-keeping.

Most self employed painters fail to charge
the same rates that big building companies charge.
They estimate jobs on the rates they would
receive working direct for a builder. The builder
has to charges double to cover high overheads
and then adds VAT Write your estimates like
a big builder not a one man band!!

Visitors to this site request more information
about job estimating than any other subject.
I think the reason for this is
painters new to the trade believe I can
tell them about a system that will
eliminate all the hard, time consuming work
the goes into estimating paint jobs. What
makes painting estimates a little difficult is
no two jobs are the same so the
costs are always different.

The cost that you will be charged to
paint a room all depends on who you
hire to do the work, but I will
endeavor to give you a reasonable Idea.
Average cost in London.
Paint ceiling 2 coats of white emulsion.
Paint walls 2 coats of wall color.
Undercoat and gloss all woodwork in room.
Room Sizes (L/W/H Metres).
Average Labor only Cost by a professional painter.
3x3x3=450 pounds
4x5x3=600 pounds
4x6x3.5=875 pounds
Add to the above the cost of materials, which
I can only estimate at about 150 pounds a
room depending on size. The much cheaper
option if you are at all handy is
to put on some overalls and do
it yourself!! saving the labor cost which
accounts for about 80-90% of the price.

Cost of Painting a 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.

A word of warning be very clear
when requesting a full cost estimate. State
exactly what tasks you desire the painter do
for a complete job. Do not miss
anything out make sure everything is written
down on paper. This will avoid any
misunderstanding as the work progresses and
any claims from the painter for extra's.

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.
