Most painting contractors play "follow the leader"
or "going rate" They think because another
company is charging say £50 per hour
that is the set rate and they blindly
stick with it regardless of the different
overheads of the other company the other
company may have low overheads, and will
make a profit at £50 per hour.
you might have much higher overheads and if
you copy this £50 per hour rate will lose
money. Calculate you own profitable hourly rate.

Perceived value is everything, from beginning to end.
Think for a while and step back and
put yourself in the clients shoes. If
you have two sandwich shops, one that you
have used before, the other is new to
you. The one you know charges 50 pence
extra for your favorite sandwich. The other
shop is cheaper by 50 pence, Would you
gamble on an unknown to save 1 pound?
or would you rather go with something you know
is good for the sake of a pound.
You will pay more for something that
you believe in. Painting customers are no
different they usually stay with people who
have done good work for them in
the past.

Paint prices always go up, have you noticed
how dear top brands of paint are nowadays.
If you can get quality paint at a
discount, good for you, but do not
pass on this good fortune to your customers.
I always make money when I supply
the materials! I know painters who ignore
price increases then complain of the cost.

A word about this fictional going rate for a
painter. compare these two painters.
(A)
The local handyman cum painter he says he
can do anything, but gas and electric.
He has a dirty old van and
arrives for work in a blue, paint
splattered pair of overalls. He does a
passable job. Now his overheads are zilch
so he can afford to work for a
cheap price. because of this and not is
ability he gets plenty of work.
(B)
A medium sized painting company which employs
20 painters and 10 non painting personnel
which included the following: The boss, his
son, 2 supervisors, a sales rep, a
wages clerk, cleaner, a driver, carpenter and
a yard man.

Do you think (B) can charge the
same GOING RATE as (A) and stay
in business. Eventually (B) could not due
to high staff overheads and went bankrupt
(A) is still in business.

When the painter looks at your job and
cannot decide on a price and says he
will do the work on a daily rate,
say no! you want a price for the
whole job. What one painter can do
in 10 hours another may labor to do
it in 20 due to lack of
experience or may not be a painter
at all.

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.

on the cost. A self employed painter
who may be temporally out of work will be
very happy to do your private work,

able to paint a simple room without
complex trim for about £130 - £195. If
you hire a proper contractor with their
high overheads - you will pay 3-4
