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.

The cost that you will be charged to
paint a room all depends on who you
hire to do the work, but I will
endeavor to give you a reasonable Idea.
Average cost in London.
Paint ceiling 2 coats of white emulsion.
Paint walls 2 coats of wall color.
Undercoat and gloss all woodwork in room.
Room Sizes (L/W/H Metres).
Average Labor only Cost by a professional painter.
3x3x3=450 pounds
4x5x3=600 pounds
4x6x3.5=875 pounds
Add to the above the cost of materials, which
I can only estimate at about 150 pounds a
room depending on size. The much cheaper
option if you are at all handy is
to put on some overalls and do
it yourself!! saving the labor cost which
accounts for about 80-90% of the price.

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.

Some would be clients that ring me up, ask
how much do you charge to paint my
(front room)(bathroom)(staircase) or exterior of home.
I say to them I do not know
without actually seeing it. To which they
reply.. well it's this big, It's got
three widows, only one door though, it will
only need one coat, It's in good
condition even though my husband used to smoke
a lot in that room, How much do
you think then? I repeat I will have
to see the job!! Oh alright then,
here's the address, come round a 4 tomorrow,
hope you like cats I have ten.
Never give a written quote for an
unseen job, if you don't want a
nasty surprise.

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.

I would advise when making your estimate to
allow plenty of time for work that is
not actually painting. The hard part of
any painting work is clearing up when you
are finished. Getting all materials of the
premises and giving the property a thorough
clean up. If you leave a mess the
whole job will be judged on that.

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.
