Paint Cost Estimate

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.

Its most important that a job estimates is
correct and nothing is left overlooked or missing from
the paperwork. this protects both the client and
the contractor and does not end in a
dispute once the work is in progress. A poorly
rushed estimate with items of work overlooked that
the client wants decorating could mean the contractor
is losing a lot of money before he
picks up his tools.

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.

When you arrive to make an estimate for
painting, what is your appearance, do you
look like a professional or a chancer
who is decked-out-in old paint
stained overalls. Do you have a notepad and
pen handy and start measuring or just guess.
Are you friendly do you smile. Are you
early or late for the appointment. Have you
a nice clean vehicle. All these things
make an important first impression.
