a little apprehensive when inviting a tradesman
or women to call around to your home
and give an estimate for decorating, that
is why some try to get an
estimate over the phone. There is no
way this can be done, the work
has to be seen. If you feel uneasy
about people calling have someone else in
the property for moral support and company.

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

painter may ask if he can do it
on a day-work rate. This is not

is no telling what the eventual cost
will be. Insist on a price for
the whole job. Get an estimate from
another painter and compare the two.

or "going rate" They think because another
company is charging say £50 per hour
that is the set rate and they blindly
stick with it regardless of the different
overheads of the other company the other
company may have low overheads, and will
make a profit at £50 per hour.
you might have much higher overheads and if
you copy this £50 per hour rate will lose
money. Calculate you own profitable hourly rate.
