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.

Over the years i have seen many painters
that i have worked with, fail in this
business, and I used to feel sorry for
them, but not any more. They choose
not to educate themselves and learn new skills.
Yes it's true years ago being a good
craftsman was all you had to be to
make a good living, not any more! To days
competition is much more intense, don't stand
still sitting on your butt bathing in
your pride of craftsmanship.

Estimating time for preparation work can be very
tricky and requires special consideration If a
room has wallpaper that needs stripping it may
take you 20 minutes to remove or all day.
There may be several papers on the wall
and some could be washable which will
require a steam stripper which you may
have to hire. When the paper is
removed the walls could need a lot of
filling and sanding down. Conclusion you should
estimate wall paper stripping at 8 hours
per medium sized room.

There are plenty of folk who think their
time is very important but could not care
less about wasting yours. So it could be
a good idea to charge for a written
estimate on your headed stationary. Most people
who want an estimate already have someone else
in mind for the work anyway. They want
to compare prices. Charge for your estimate
and refund it if you get the job.
Yes I know everyone states free estimates but
you must be paid for your time and
not let people waste it.

When the painter looks at your job and
cannot decide on a price and says he
will do the work on a daily rate,
say no! you want a price for the
whole job. What one painter can do
in 10 hours another may labor to do
it in 20 due to lack of
experience or may not be a painter
at all.

Painting contractors very early in the life
of tier new business get a good
picture in regards to cash flow. They
will almost certainly experience that sinking feeling
when they lose money on a job.
That is unless he has been handed a
ready made profitable company by his parents
which he has been learning the trade
with since he was very young.

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.
