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.

Most painting contractors play "follow the leader"
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.

Pricing painting work does involve a mixture
of intuition and experience which can only
be acquired by actually doing painting work for
a few years. A painter instinctively knows
how long it takes to do certain
stages of painting, and will base his
estimate on this. Some painters can just
quickly look at a job and will
instantly give a quote. I advise against
this, think the work over for a
while, make sure nothing has been overlooked,
then submit your written estimate.

Painters will encounter some customers who judge a
painting contractor on the price of the
estimate he submits for the work. They
seem to think there is a great
difference in ability from a cheap painter
and one that charges the proper rate.
A painter is no different from any
other profession. How do you start to
compare the difference between a guy who
promises the world takes a deposit and
vanishes into thin air for two or
three weeks, with one that never seems
to stop work until the job is completed
to your complete satisfaction.
