Every painting job is different, but some painting
contractors new to the industry think there must
be some fantastic software that they can use
and bingo!! plug it in and they will
always win the job, with a great estimate
regardless of them knowing absolutely nothing about
the estimating process.

A painting company may have an abundance
of work with all the men working
full time, many even working weekends, but
the contractor quickly notices looking over the
accounts, they are not making enough money!
The answer is do less jobs but charge a
higher profitable rate for them, even if
it means trimming back the work force.

There are many on-line decorating companies that
have sprung up over the years. What
they are really are employment agency, where
painters for a fee, get work. The
painters bid against each other for work.
Then the clients give them a reference or
rates them. This could be a good way
to find a local painter, but some
of them seem to be rather new to
the profession.

Its no surprise to me to see a recent
trade news article about painting estimates, to
discover the deciding reasons for preferring one
painting contractor over another. It seems the
clients top priority was not surprisingly, honesty
and trustworthiness followed closely by cleanliness.
The price for the work came next
down the list just above good tradesmen,
time keeping and manners.

It's a common problem that new painting
business managers often struggle with pricing the
painting jobs that they survey. Finding the
right price to tender is what makes
or breaks the companies business and determines
whether you win or lose jobs. Getting
your prices right is not always an easy
matter, better to go in to high than
low. Don't give a low estimate to win
the job.

Over the years i have seen many painters
that i have worked with, fail in this
business, and I used to feel sorry for
them, but not any more. They choose
not to educate themselves and learn new skills.
Yes it's true years ago being a good
craftsman was all you had to be to
make a good living, not any more! To days
competition is much more intense, don't stand
still sitting on your butt bathing in
your pride of craftsmanship.
