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.

Decorating clients have of course very different
priorities. A percentage of them will view the
cost as their deciding factor. Some decorators
don't give them a estimate because they
see them as a headache and more
trouble than they are worth. On the
other hand there is the clients who
associate a low estimate with unqualified decorators
or poor quality of workmanship.

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.

On a perfectly prepared surface, painting is
the quick and easy part, almost anyone
could do it. It's the preparation that makes
the difference between a good job and a
bad one. Preparation which includes, scraping down
filling and sanding takes up most of
the time. This preparation time must account
for most of the cost of your estimate.

Pricing painting work does involve a mixture
of intuition and experience which can only
be acquired by actually doing painting work for
a few years. A painter instinctively knows
how long it takes to do certain
stages of painting, and will base his
estimate on this. Some painters can just
quickly look at a job and will
instantly give a quote. I advise against
this, think the work over for a
while, make sure nothing has been overlooked,
then submit your written estimate.

The most successful painting contractors tend to
never stop learning about all aspects of
the building industry not just painting alone.
Some of them start out as painters
then graduate to general building contractors. From
the very beginning some will be thinking
about starting their own company armed with the
valuable knowledge about estimating jobs, sales principles
and crucially estimating jobs that will show
a profit from their early days.

Its no surprise to me to see a recent
trade news article about painting estimates, to
discover the deciding reasons for preferring one
painting contractor over another. It seems the
clients top priority was not surprisingly, honesty
and trustworthiness followed closely by cleanliness.
The price for the work came next
down the list just above good tradesmen,
time keeping and manners.
