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.

When making an estimate for exterior work take
a close look at the condition of the property.
Sometimes the sashes and other woodwork are in
such a state it is not a paint job
but repair work and will take far
longer than the actual painting. It might be
wiser to walk away!!

If a painting contractor lowers is prices when
times are slow, and the price of
materials rises, this has a bad effect
on his profits. Does he ever calculate how
much money he is losing. The painters
costs or overheads are higher this year,
but at the same time the painting
contract prices are lower. Avoid lowering your
job estimates not all clients make cost
their top priority.

Who gives the estimate has a huge bearing
on the cost. A self employed painter
who may be temporally out of work will be
very happy to do your private work,
His outgoings are low and he is
able to paint a simple room without
complex trim for about £130 - £195. If
you hire a proper contractor with their
high overheads - you will pay 3-4
times that amount.

Theres a painting franchise that states they
decorate a complete house or flat in a
day. At 8.am. a gang of painters
arrive with a lorry load of equipment
and painters. Every room is occupied by
3-4 workers. By 4.am the jobs finished the
whole house gleaming. The workmen clean-up
and leave but the supervisor waits for
the occupants to arrive home. He jumps out
of a cupboard with a beaming smile
he hands them a lovely bunch of flowers.
I think they must be telling porkies!!

When the painter looks at your job and
cannot decide on a price and says he
will do the work on a daily rate,
say no! you want a price for the
whole job. What one painter can do
in 10 hours another may labor to do
it in 20 due to lack of
experience or may not be a painter
at all.
