It's a common problem that new painting
business managers often struggle with pricing the
painting jobs that they survey. Finding the
right price to tender is what makes
or breaks the companies business and determines
whether you win or lose jobs. Getting
your prices right is not always an easy
matter, better to go in to high than
low. Don't give a low estimate to win
the job.

The US Department of Labor statistics says
that 80% of all small businesses fail within the
first five years. Of the remaining, 80% of
them go out of business in the next
5 years. So at the end of ten
years only 4% are still in business.
Sadly to say most painting contractors fall
into this statistic.

Decorating clients have of course very different
priorities. A percentage of them will view the
cost as their deciding factor. Some decorators
don't give them a estimate because they
see them as a headache and more
trouble than they are worth. On the
other hand there is the clients who
associate a low estimate with unqualified decorators
or poor quality of workmanship.

Some would be clients that ring me up, ask
how much do you charge to paint my
(front room)(bathroom)(staircase) or exterior of home.
I say to them I do not know
without actually seeing it. To which they
reply.. well it's this big, It's got
three widows, only one door though, it will
only need one coat, It's in good
condition even though my husband used to smoke
a lot in that room, How much do
you think then? I repeat I will have
to see the job!! Oh alright then,
here's the address, come round a 4 tomorrow,
hope you like cats I have ten.
Never give a written quote for an
unseen job, if you don't want a
nasty surprise.

On a perfectly prepared surface, painting is
the quick and easy part, almost anyone
could do it. It's the preparation that makes
the difference between a good job and a
bad one. Preparation which includes, scraping down
filling and sanding takes up most of
the time. This preparation time must account
for most of the cost of your estimate.

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.

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.
