Leaving items off of a estimate when calculating
the price will cost you money. Over a year this
will amount to a large sum of wasted
money. Money which would have given you and
your family some nice holidays in the sun.
If a client ask for a complete job
charge for a complete job.

Your best paint estimate should be a one
of a kind for that particular job.
It must take into account your companies present
productivity, price of materials, labor, profits and
overheads. There is no book or software
that can take into account all the
wildly different conditions found in paint estimating
work. Use you judgment which will increase
over time.

The owner of a painting company must learn
business practices to be successful. It is
not enough to be a great painter,
you can teach anyone within reason to paint.
Many painting contractors go out of business
within their first five years of trading, sadly
due to money problems, brought about by
not charging enough for their services.

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.

Every year there is a mad rush to
get decorating work finished for the Christmas
holidays. November brings a mad rush and
painters are usually very busy, and they
should take full advantage of this because
after Christmas we enter the dreaded KIPPER SEASON,
meaning everybody seems to go to sleep
and work can be very thin on the ground.

Lots of times mainly on exterior work preparation
can cost way more than the painting itself.
A house exterior that needs very little preparation
could be painted in a day. A
property with rotten woodwork and flaky masonry
will take much longer and must be estimated
for repairs, materials, extra paint and
clean-up time.

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.
