Painters usually have their own way of
estimating the overall price to charge for a
job. Large commercial jobs where rates are
calculated on floor square footage is the
work for a professional quantity surveyor with
vital experience in this type of work.
Pricing residential work is much easier and
should be no problem for a able tradesman.

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.

Pricing a painting job that actually makes a
good profit is not an easy thing for
someone without practical experience of actually painting
rooms or exterior work. A painter will
know within reason how long it takes
to re-decorate a straight forward room, when
I say re-decorate it simply means paint
walls and ceiling undercoat and gloss woodwork,
with little preparation such as filling and
rubbing down. All the painter has to do
in this case is charge 3-4 days
money at his day work rate.

If a painter is cheaper than others who
survey their home, it will mean nothing if he
turns up smelling of booze, because the
client will associate this with being unprofessional
and sloppy, not matter how good a
painter they may be. They would far
sooner choose a more expensive painter that
presents themselves in a clean business like manner.

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.

Painting contractors place their own heads in a
vice, most of them firmly believe the
only way to be competitive is to lower
their estimates and be the cheapest in
town or they will not get work.
These lower prices are always some other
painting contractors fault. They do damage to
their businesses because they are adamant lower
prices are the only logical answer. Which
is stupid!! People who buy services buy
on a mixture of reasons.

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.
