Cost of Painting House

When a painter has been in the decorating
trade for a while, he soon realizes that
writing a perfect estimate no way guarantee's
winning the contract. I have noticed this
when I have been awarded jobs even
though I submitted the highest tender. You
should always submit a thorough estimate, It's
part of the total impression the prospective
customer uses to choose one contractor from the others.

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?

There is no ready made price that fits
every job why!! Because in all my
years of pricing work I have never
come across two jobs that one estimate
would be the same for. The main
reason for this is the size, shape,
condition, location, labor and materials cost for
different rooms and buildings. Painting estimates should be
be customized for each job.

Picking up your paint brush and decorating a
room is not the whole job, there are
other things that are part of the work
and must go into the jobs final estimate.
Travel time, loading and unloading plant and materials.
Preparing a room for painting involves, removing
furniture and sheeting up. When the job is
finished clean up time. This could take as
long as the painting itself!!

Its nigh on impossible to carry out decorating
and not make some mess. Rubbing down
walls and woodwork causes dust, that's acceptable
but clean it up and spend plenty
of time doing it. This end of job
cleaning is often overlooked when submitting you
estimate and must be factored in. If
the room takes a day to paint
charge 1 day for cleaning-up.

Don't give an estimate if the client
refuses to make an appointment to see you,
to run through the details of your
finished proposal. You may have spent 3 hours
working on the estimate then the client
says I'm busy or going out of
town, email of fax it would you.
Insist on a appointment when you first call.

Your best paint estimate should be a one
of a kind for that particular job.
It must take into account your companies present
productivity, price of materials, labor, profits and
overheads. There is no book or software
that can take into account all the
wildly different conditions found in paint estimating
work. Use you judgment which will increase
over time.

The common mistake of the owner of a
painting company is that I am a
master painter and decorator that is all
that matters, the business side will take
care of itself. The fact is most
successful painting contractors wear a suit and
not overalls, they never pick up a brush
and if they did they would in all
probability be useless. The companies money is
largely made by tendering and winning profitable
job estimates.
