Estimating a paint job is very time-consuming
and you will only win a percentage of
the work you bid for. If you
don't get the work that you are
giving a price for, at the rate your
company demands it is better than going
in low and winning the contract because
you will be setting a standard for
future low priced work that can only
lead to poor work along with wages
for your men. Low prices can often leads
to bankruptcy.

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?

The owner of a painting company must learn
business practices to be successful. It is
not enough to be a great painter,

Many painting contractors go out of business
within their first five years of trading, sadly
due to money problems, brought about by
not charging enough for their services.

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.

When making an estimate for exterior work take
a close look at the condition of the property.
Sometimes the sashes and other woodwork are in
such a state it is not a paint job
but repair work and will take far
longer than the actual painting. It might be
wiser to walk away!!

Painting contractors very early in the life
of thier new business get a good
picture in regards to cash flow. They
will almost certainly experience that sinking feeling
when they lose money on a job.
That is unless he has been handed a
ready made profitable company by his parents
which he has been learning the trade
with since he was very young.

I have met many painters who work six
and seven days a week,twelve hours a
day bank holidays throughout the year you
name it. They are literally work themselves
into an early grave. These painters complain,
yes I have plenty of work, but I
still do not have enough money after I
pay all my costs there is just a
small amount to save me from going under.
This is a sure sign he is
under-pricing his work and would be better
off charging more and working far less.
