Cost to Paint House Exterior

A good professional appearance goes a long
way to gaining the clients confidence and
securing the work. Is the painting contractor
clean looking? It's important to understand people
hire workmen on their appearance, never mind about
the saying 'never judge a book by
it's cover' most people do!

Prospective customers very often get several painters to
tender estimates. They shop around. A painter
would of course find it useful to
know the competitions bids, but should not
base his price on theirs because their
overheads are bound to be different from his.
Don't be afraid to tender a high price
if the job warrants it. If your
company has a good reputation customers will
take that into account.

Lots of times mainly on exterior work preparation
can cost way more than the painting itself.
A house exterior that needs very little preparation
could be painted in a day. A
property with rotten woodwork and flaky masonry
will take much longer and must be estimated
for repairs, materials, extra paint and
clean-up time.

When you arrive to make an estimate for
painting, what is your appearance, do you
look like a professional or a chancer
who is decked-out-in old paint
stained overalls. Do you have a notepad and
pen handy and start measuring or just guess.
Are you friendly do you smile. Are you
early or late for the appointment. Have you
a nice clean vehicle. All these things
make an important first impression.

To hire a professional decorator can vary
greatly in cost, usually the more skilled
the painter the the higher the cost.
On line painting sites are at the top end
of the scale, and are no more
skilled than a painter you could hire off
of a notice board in your own
high street. Local free newspaper have plenty of
good decorators looking for your custom, get
one or two to come round and give
you an estimate. You could do far worse!
