It's very simple: If you want to expand your business, you need to know all about measuring painting works from drawings and how to calculate all-in painting rates.
Without these skills, you will always be held back, relying on either pricing by guesstimating the number of days or a Principal Contractor Q.S. produced bill of quantities.
The problem with guesstimating is that the larger, more complex the project, the more likely it is that you will get the price wrong.
The problem with Principal Contract Q.S. bill of quantities is that either it is subject to re-measure upon completion of the project, or the contractor will as you to sign up to a lump sum contract, so that you have to trust that the bill of quantities is accurate.
So what do you do?
In just the same way that you would invest in a new van or new sprayer, you need to invest in estimating training and estimating software.
The only place to go for this is panddonline, the only UK painting estimating company who offer estimating services, estimating training and estimating software for commercial painting contractors.
