When the painting contractor arrives to tender
his estimate follow these guidelines. Explain clearly
how you want the decorating done,leaving
nothing out. Your choice of colors and materials,
does he supply them or you. Which option
is the cheapest? Tell the painter you require
a price for the whole job, no
day-work basis. Get 2 more estimates
from different painters.

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.

If the paint job is complicated the
painter may ask if he can do it
on a day-work rate. This is not
a good deal for the householder as there
is no telling what the eventual cost
will be. Insist on a price for
the whole job. Get an estimate from
another painter and compare the two.
They may differ greatly.

Who gives the estimate has a huge bearing
on the cost. A self employed painter
who may be temporally out of work will be
very happy to do your private work,
His outgoings are low and he is
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
times that amount.

If you estimate work in a desperate attempt to
get it at a much lower price than
your competitors you will still have to do
a good job or be known has a bodger
or tosher. Word will spread that you work
for peanuts and will do for any future
jobs, you will have set your own cheap
rates condemning yourself to be forever working but,
always poor.

Every item in a room that we decorate
takes time out of your working day and
must be accounted for in your estimate.
Door handles, window catches finger plates,light
switches, wall furniture such as pictures must
be reinstated. When first taking off make
certain you keep everything together and don't
lose any screws, keep them altogether in
a box.

You can make a good living being a
painting contractor. I have found over the
years painting can be very rewarding, not
that the trade does not suffer from any
drawbacks, you are bound to come across
difficult jobs and people. It's how you
handle them that matters. As soon as you
set yourself up in business, plan to do
everything by the book and strictly legal.
Keep on top of taxes, liability insurances,
employee's wages and so on. Treat your
business professionally.
