Quotes for house painting

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.

A good professional appearance goes a long
way to gaining the clients confidence and
securing the work. Is the painting contractor
clean looking? It's important to understand people
hire workmen on their appearance, never mind about
the saying 'never judge a book by
it's cover' most people do!

When a painter has been in the decorating
trade for a while, he soon realizes that
writing a perfect estimate no way guarantee's
winning the contract. I have noticed this
when I have been awarded jobs even
though I submitted the highest tender. You
should always submit a thorough estimate, It's
part of the total impression the prospective
customer uses to choose one contractor from the others.

Quotes for house painting

A painting company may have an abundance
of work with all the men working
full time, many even working weekends, but
the contractor quickly notices looking over the
accounts, they are not making enough money!
The answer is do less jobs but charge a
higher profitable rate for them, even if
it means trimming back the work force.

Quotes for house painting

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.

Lots of times mainly on exterior work preparation
can cost way more than the painting itself.
A house exterior that needs very little preparation
could be painted in a day. A
property with rotten woodwork and flaky masonry
will take much longer and must be estimated
for repairs, materials, extra paint and
clean-up time.

Quotes for house painting

When making your estimate for exterior work take a
sharp object with you such as a screw driver
and dig it in around the window sills and
door frames to see if there is any
rotten timber that need major filling or
even replacing. If you miss fail to add
this work to your estimate you may
end up doing the repairs for nothing!!
