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.

Some painters estimate a room by square footage
of the floor. Others simply multiply by 3
the value of paint and materials to
arrive at a price. Then their is
painters who have not a clue who charge,
Time and material. Knowing how long it takes
your workforce to paint, ceilings walls, woodwork etc.
and then multiplying be the companies day
rate is a simple method. An example would
be: 2 hour to paint a window,
2 coats = 2 hours x £15 Total £30.

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.

Your estimate may be lower than your competitor
but he gets the work. Everyone has their own
priorities and the cost of the work may
not be top of the list for some.
Tidy work, good time keeping, references from former
clients, insurance, a nice clean vehicle and your
appearance, do you look trustworthy?

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.

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.

Did you up your estimate price or did
you just forget about the price increases
and absorb the loss? If your business
doesn't stay current with the latest price
increases when doing their estimates, you are
bound to lose cash. Pass on price
increases now don't wait till the end of
the year. Why pay throughout the year
for your customers jobs.
