A simple exercise to find out how much
it will cost to hire a professional
decorator is.. Wait till you see a
painter working on a property down your
street. Ask him if he does private
work!! I know painters and this will
be music to his ears. Tell him what
you want done, and where you live. The
beauty about this way to hire a
great painter is it won't cost a
penny in advertising or phone calls and it cuts
out that expensive middle man.

The common mistake of the owner of a
painting company is that I am a
master painter and decorator that is all
that matters, the business side will take
care of itself. The fact is most
successful painting contractors wear a suit and
not overalls, they never pick up a brush
and if they did they would in all
probability be useless. The companies money is
largely made by tendering and winning profitable
job estimates.

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.

Prospective customers very often get several painters to
tender estimates. They shop around. A painter
would of course find it useful to
know the competitions bids, but should not
base his price on theirs because their
overheads are bound to be different from his.
Don't be afraid to tender a high price
if the job warrants it. If your
company has a good reputation customers will
take that into account.

How do you arrive at the best price
for a particular paint job? Do you charge
the so called going rate. Who sets this
fictional going rate? Is it a trade
journal, a painter or maybe a rival
painting contractor. The answer is none of
the above. It is you or someone who
has access to you business accounts showing
your overheads that dictate how much you
must charge per hour to make a profit.

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.

I am sure the big companies that make the
top brands of paint have their slow times
of year when sales are not so buoyant,
but can you imagine the top two paint
brands, Crown and Dulux getting involved in a
price war and paint prices plummeting downwards.
Not on your life!! Its the same with
all painting materials they creep-up year
after year. The painting contractor must pass
these increases on, or lose money.
