House Paint Quotes

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.

Exterior painting usually has a lot of weather
damage, especially if it has not been painted for
a few years. Get up a ladder and check
all the woodwork for rot. Pay a lot
of attention to the sashes. Interiors are
different with not much prep work needed
before painting can commence.

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.

House Paint Quotes

We have all had to listen to painters bragging
about jobs they have done and the money
they have made. How they only have to
look at a clients job for a few
seconds and wallop a price for it comes
into their head as if by magic from nowhere.
Personally I do not like their style of
estimating a job as I know from experience
that they very often end badly.

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.

House Paint Quotes

If when pricing for a painting contract you
knew the tender price of the opposition
and you was to put in a lower
estimate to get the work, you could
be on a loser before a brush
was used. Why? because your overheads, workforce
and productivity are unlikely to be the
same as the other company. Their overheads
might be very low and can afford
a cheap price, can you!!
