If the paint job is complicated the
painter may ask if he can do it
on a day-work rate. This is not
a good deal for the householder as there
is no telling what the eventual cost
will be. Insist on a price for
the whole job. Get an estimate from
another painter and compare the two.
They may differ greatly.

Theres a painting franchise that states they
decorate a complete house or flat in a
day. At 8.am. a gang of painters
arrive with a lorry load of equipment
and painters. Every room is occupied by
3-4 workers. By 4.am the jobs finished the
whole house gleaming. The workmen clean-up
and leave but the supervisor waits for
the occupants to arrive home. He jumps out
of a cupboard with a beaming smile
he hands them a lovely bunch of flowers.
I think they must be telling porkies!!

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.

I have met many painters who work six
and seven days a week,twelve hours a
day bank holidays throughout the year you
name it. They are literally work themselves
into an early grave. These painters complain,
yes I have plenty of work, but I
still do not have enough money after I
pay all my costs there is just a
small amount to save me from going under.
This is a sure sign he is
under-pricing his work and would be better
off charging more and working far less.

I went to a house to estimate some
rooms. I was met by the husband
and wife. I asked what had to be
done, then inquired was anyone else giving
them a estimate if so how many.
She replied six other painters were going to
give her written job estimate. I said i
was not going to waste time writing out
a estimate and walked out the door. It
would take me 3-4 hours unpaid work
and then the odds would be 8-1
against me!! no thanks.

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.

Painters when asked to give a price
for painting, will estimate how long from
experience the work will take to complete.
Say they envisage a room will take
three days, they multiply this by their
day work charge, plus materials Then they
may add One day for cleaning and
clearing everything off the job. The total
might typically be 4 days x 120
pounds = 480 pounds, without materials.
