Tips in Interior House Painting Estimate in Highland Park
Painters have been around for a long time, so interior house painting estimate in Highland Park is not "rocket surgery".
So, let's say estimate painting one hundred square feet of smooth wall surface at the rate of.667 hours. In other words if I charge $25/hour would probably say to go to work at the post office instead, because you are not making $25 after expenses, but let's pursue this. One hundred square feet of wall in a re-paint, not new construction, because painting new construction is a much lower rate per square foot because a painter can go much faster. Setting up, protection, preparation and cleanup are almost zero. So when you painters talk to each other, make sure that you are talking apples to apples.
Where do we estimate prep, cleanup, replacing plate covers, traveling to buy paint, break time (nobody works 8 hours in an 8 hour day unless you are superman), cleanup, dealing with the customer.
You may go faster or slower than me so you have to time yourself and /or your crew. And then use your job times not mine. Each house may have different rates. Your crew is faster or slower.
2) What if it takes you 3 hours to drive to the job?
Start your painting estimate with YOUR historical time to paint a room or door or window.
