Estimating time for preparation work can be very
tricky and requires special consideration If a
room has wallpaper that needs stripping it may
take you 20 minutes to remove or all day.
There may be several papers on the wall
and some could be washable which will
require a steam stripper which you may
have to hire. When the paper is
removed the walls could need a lot of
filling and sanding down. Conclusion you should
estimate wall paper stripping at 8 hours
per medium sized room.

Perceived value is everything, from beginning to end.
Think for a while and step back and
put yourself in the clients shoes. If
you have two sandwich shops, one that you
have used before, the other is new to
you. The one you know charges 50 pence
extra for your favorite sandwich. The other
shop is cheaper by 50 pence, Would you
gamble on an unknown to save 1 pound?
or would you rather go with something you know
is good for the sake of a pound.
You will pay more for something that
you believe in. Painting customers are no
different they usually stay with people who
have done good work for them in
the past.

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?

Painting contractors place their own heads in a
vice, most of them firmly believe the
only way to be competitive is to lower
their estimates and be the cheapest in
town or they will not get work.
These lower prices are always some other
painting contractors fault. They do damage to
their businesses because they are adamant lower
prices are the only logical answer. Which
is stupid!! People who buy services buy
on a mixture of reasons.

The cost that you will be charged to
paint a room all depends on who you
hire to do the work, but I will
endeavor to give you a reasonable Idea.
Average cost in London.
Paint ceiling 2 coats of white emulsion.
Paint walls 2 coats of wall color.
Undercoat and gloss all woodwork in room.
Room Sizes (L/W/H Metres).
Average Labor only Cost by a professional painter.
3x3x3=450 pounds
4x5x3=600 pounds
4x6x3.5=875 pounds
Add to the above the cost of materials, which
I can only estimate at about 150 pounds a
room depending on size. The much cheaper
option if you are at all handy is
to put on some overalls and do
it yourself!! saving the labor cost which
accounts for about 80-90% of the price.

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.

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.
