Painting a house cost

Last week I got talking to a fellow
painting business owner. We talked about prices.
I inquired what was his hourly rate. I was
half expecting him to say a low
figure, but what he said shuck me!!
his hourly rate was so low, but he
defended this by saying he did not want
to lose work. I told him stop robbing
himself and to raise his rate by at
least 50% and he would still get work.

If a painter is cheaper than others who
survey their home, it will mean nothing if he
turns up smelling of booze, because the
client will associate this with being unprofessional
and sloppy, not matter how good a
painter they may be. They would far
sooner choose a more expensive painter that
presents themselves in a clean business like manner.
Painting exterior windows at ground level is
much quicker and easier than working off a
ladder 2 or 3 floors higher. It takes
a lot of extra time to position your
ladder safely and keep going up and
down different materials, It may even be a
2 man job. You must charge at
least twice the rate for high ladder work.

A painting contractor should never stop learning if
he wants his business to grow and it
can only grow not only if it gets
more work but makes a profit on
every man who it employs. He must
learn business principals, Read books on sales
techniques, go to seminars. Education in your
chosen business has everything to do with
your continuing success.

Painters usually have their own way of
estimating the overall price to charge for a
job. Large commercial jobs where rates are
calculated on floor square footage is the
work for a professional quantity surveyor with
vital experience in this type of work.
Pricing residential work is much easier and
should be no problem for a able tradesman.

Painting contractors place their own heads in a
vice, most of them firmly believe the
only way to be competitive is to lower
their estimates and be the cheapest in
town or they will not get work.
These lower prices are always some other
painting contractors fault. They do damage to
their businesses because they are adamant lower
prices are the only logical answer. Which
is stupid!! People who buy services buy
on a mixture of reasons.

Prices for interior estimates can vary widely from
painter to painter, so obtain 2-3 to get
the average cost. In general a price for
the whole job is better than a day-work
rate as you know what the final cost will
be, and you don't have to watch
the painters time-keeping.
