We have all had to listen to painters bragging
about jobs they have done and the money
they have made. How they only have to
look at a clients job for a few
seconds and wallop a price for it comes
into their head as if by magic from nowhere.
Personally I do not like their style of
estimating a job as I know from experience
that they very often end badly.

Every year there is a mad rush to
get decorating work finished for the Christmas
holidays. November brings a mad rush and
painters are usually very busy, and they
should take full advantage of this because
after Christmas we enter the dreaded KIPPER SEASON,
meaning everybody seems to go to sleep
and work can be very thin on the ground.

How about a painters professional appearance?
Is the painting contractor clean looking?
clients hire workmen on emotion. Do they
like us? If so, then why? Do
they trust us in their homes just
because we are cheaper than another painter?
They hire us because they like and
trust us more than the other guys
that submits his estimate.

Painting exterior windows at ground level is
much quicker and easier than working off a
ladder 2 or 3 floors higher. It takes
a lot of extra time to position your
ladder safely and keep going up and
down different materials, It may even be a
2 man job. You must charge at
least twice the rate for high ladder work.

Your best paint estimate should be a one
of a kind for that particular job.
It must take into account your companies present
productivity, price of materials, labor, profits and
overheads. There is no book or software
that can take into account all the
wildly different conditions found in paint estimating
work. Use you judgment which will increase
over time.

If you have a good idea how long it
takes you to do the actual painting job,
and how many total hours it takes.
A quick and reasonably accurate system for estimating
the whole job is to multiply by.1 or.2
or what you think is the average time
it will take you to: Set up
the job, clean up when finished.

Ultimately, the client, tends to when making a
buying decision go by first impressions of the
salesman, that is you the painting contractor.
Do you look trustworthy, clean, cheerful. Did you
give a clear picture of the work you
have estimated for. Did you arrive on time.
Are you going to do the work
personally and not use subcontractors. Can you supply
good references. Have you liability insurance cover.
