Interior Paint Quote

Some painters estimate a room by square footage
of the floor. Others simply multiply by 3
the value of paint and materials to
arrive at a price. Then their is
painters who have not a clue who charge,
Time and material. Knowing how long it takes
your workforce to paint, ceilings walls, woodwork etc.
and then multiplying be the companies day
rate is a simple method. An example would
be: 2 hour to paint a window,
2 coats = 2 hours x £15 Total £30.

It's help full to keep track of your
competitors in the painting business, even if
you do not intend to base your estimate
prices on market rates. Do a bit of
detective work, what is the hourly rate
they are charging,get some quotes. Paint
suppliers know a lot about the work
situation have a chat with them.

There are plenty of folk who think their
time is very important but could not care
less about wasting yours. So it could be
a good idea to charge for a written
estimate on your headed stationary. Most people
who want an estimate already have someone else
in mind for the work anyway. They want
to compare prices. Charge for your estimate
and refund it if you get the job.
Yes I know everyone states free estimates but
you must be paid for your time and
not let people waste it.

How do you arrive at the best price
for a particular paint job? Do you charge
the so called going rate. Who sets this
fictional going rate? Is it a trade
journal, a painter or maybe a rival
painting contractor. The answer is none of
the above. It is you or someone who
has access to you business accounts showing
your overheads that dictate how much you
must charge per hour to make a profit.

Interior Paint Quote

Estimate a job as though you are an
accountant doing your inventory, Don't miss anything
out however small and unimportant it may seem.
I like to have a ready made list
that covers every item that is a part
of the work and must go into
estimating the complete job. It's a simple
matter when I am going over the
work with the client to tick relevant
sections. With my list, I have several
for different rooms I breeze through a
thorough estimate without missing an item.

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.

Every painting job is different, but some painting
contractors new to the industry think there must
be some fantastic software that they can use
and bingo!! plug it in and they will
always win the job, with a great estimate
regardless of them knowing absolutely nothing about
the estimating process.
