The most successful painting contractors tend to
never stop learning about all aspects of
the building industry not just painting alone.
Some of them start out as painters
then graduate to general building contractors. From
the very beginning some will be thinking
about starting their own company armed with the
valuable knowledge about estimating jobs, sales principles
and crucially estimating jobs that will show
a profit from their early days.

Some domestic quotes I have been asked to
give have been for rooms that were
full right up to the ceiling lights
with personal effects and furniture. I had
great difficulty in seeing what had to be
decorated!! In some cases the painter is
required to empty the room before work
can commence, and when the decorating is
finished put it all back again.
Personally for me this is not a
problem as I charge for this service
an extra two days money.

When a painter has been in the decorating
trade for a while, he soon realizes that
writing a perfect estimate no way guarantee's
winning the contract. I have noticed this
when I have been awarded jobs even
though I submitted the highest tender. You
should always submit a thorough estimate, It's
part of the total impression the prospective
customer uses to choose one contractor from the others.

A word about this fictional going rate for a
painter. compare these two painters.
(A)
The local handyman cum painter he says he
can do anything, but gas and electric.
He has a dirty old van and
arrives for work in a blue, paint
splattered pair of overalls. He does a
passable job. Now his overheads are zilch
so he can afford to work for a
cheap price. because of this and not is
ability he gets plenty of work.
(B)
A medium sized painting company which employs
20 painters and 10 non painting personnel
which included the following: The boss, his
son, 2 supervisors, a sales rep, a
wages clerk, cleaner, a driver, carpenter and
a yard man.

Do you think (B) can charge the
same GOING RATE as (A) and stay
in business. Eventually (B) could not due
to high staff overheads and went bankrupt
(A) is still in business.

There is no easy short-cut that you
can do in minutes what an experienced
decorating estimator will often take hours to
put together. Experienced judgment is required when
estimating complex paint jobs. It's your responsibility
alone to decide what makes this job that
you are estimating similar or different to
other jobs. When all the conditions may not be
the same. This is were you use your
experience and judgment to arrive at a
realistic proposal. Even then there is a
good chance your efforts will be unsuccessful,
but you win some you lose some!

A word of warning be very clear
when requesting a full cost estimate. State
exactly what tasks you desire the painter do
for a complete job. Do not miss
anything out make sure everything is written
down on paper. This will avoid any
misunderstanding as the work progresses and
any claims from the painter for extra's.

It makes no difference if you are tons of
money cheaper than the other guys, if the
client gets a whiff of alcohol on
your breath, they will take this as a
warning sign you could be sloppy,unreliable
or dishonest. Would you allow a person
into your home to work amongst your family
and valuables with this persona, NO. It's a
fact there are of plenty of painters
who firmly believe, that all there is to
the painting and decorating business is knowing
how to paint! The savvy contractor knows
that image is the most important thing.
