Exterior Paint Quotes

How much will a paint job cost? To
answer that question you need to know how to
estimate work. Before we can come up with a
good estimate, how long will it take
your men to paint individual items, such
as ceilings, walls, windows, door frames and
doors, skirting. Add all the times it
takes to paint these items together.
multiply by 2, whatever you day work rate is.
To this you must add preparation and
clean-up time.

Did you up your estimate price or did
you just forget about the price increases
and absorb the loss? If your business
doesn't stay current with the latest price
increases when doing their estimates, you are
bound to lose cash. Pass on price
increases now don't wait till the end of
the year. Why pay throughout the year
for your customers jobs.

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.

Exterior Paint Quotes

Business after Christmas is always slow. No one
it seem wants any work done till the
Spring time. So what is the answer?
Do you take advantage of this lull to
learn the skills of a paint estimator or
fall back on the only sales tactic
you know, they drop their prices!! This to
them is a master stroke. What happens
next is their competitors do the same to
try and secure the same contract at
a much lower loss making price.

I have met many painters who work six
and seven days a week,twelve hours a
day bank holidays throughout the year you
name it. They are literally work themselves
into an early grave. These painters complain,
yes I have plenty of work, but I
still do not have enough money after I
pay all my costs there is just a
small amount to save me from going under.
This is a sure sign he is
under-pricing his work and would be better
off charging more and working far less.

Exterior Paint Quotes

It is only natural for folk to feel
a little apprehensive when inviting a tradesman
or women to call around to your home
and give an estimate for decorating, that
is why some try to get an
estimate over the phone. There is no
way this can be done, the work
has to be seen. If you feel uneasy
about people calling have someone else in
the property for moral support and company.
