It can be hard to estimate a painting project if you are the one who needs the service but did you know that it is just as hard to estimate it when you are the one providing the service?  


To painters who are just making their way into the painting business, this may be a good guide to help you. 

  1. Invest time in visiting the site

Going to the site where the job will take place will ensure that you can is unlike the bigger picture and estimate of the job. There are many factors that goes into a painting job. It may seem like a painting project alone however other considerations like the condition of the surface that needs painting should be highly considered.  

Dark painted walls will need more amount of paint and a project aiming for accented walls will definitely carve out more time to finish.  

In this step, you can try and go the extra mile in aiming for more task to finish so that you can profit more in the process. You can start by asking if the owner needs more painting job done. If the homeowner’s primary concern are the walls, asking if he or she needs to include the ceiling will be a good idea to provide more of the painting service while also gaining profit. 

  1. Estimate paint costs

In a painting job, paint is the primary need. This will help in gaining more insight on the work’s profit thus aiming for the right quality of paint while taking price into account will be a good priority to start with.  

Gaining a discounted price for your paint needs is a very good deal. You can transparently ask the supplier of your paint if there is a discount that he or she can offer. If you are going to purchase more paint or regularly purchasing paint, then getting a discount is easy.  

  1. Estimate other material’s costs

Painting involves more than just paint. You will need a primer, tape or masking paper, caulking, and masking plastic. The materials I have mentioned relatively rely on how big of a house you are owing to paint on or how many windows or glass and corners the house has. Through this, you can better estimate how many rolls of tapes you will need and how many primers or caulking the walls of the house needs. 

  1. Labor Cost

The amount given for labor or service can be quite tricky. The usual amount of labor when its ones to panting is 20 dollars for every hour for every person. However, even when considering this, other considerations must take into place. You can encounter problems with our paint needs or the possibility of getting paint into more difficult surfaces can arise. These things should also be considered.
