I give it at cost.

I separated my Supplies from my Paints on estimates, in case the customer wants to buy their own. (My supplies section covers all consumable items, gas, some OH items or whatever else I may need specific for that job). My labour and Paint are pretty much a competitive constant in the market that I serve.

My paint store gives me cool shirts, sweatshirts, etc for the business and they dont seem to mind that im buying discounted paint. 15 gallons a week max...
Making money on paint is silly talk Well I must be silly cause I do it on every job I sell... silly me

You know, you can actually start anew thread. It's really not hard.

Anyway here you go, no more information needed and certainly don't listen to anyone who try's to sell you on a steamer

When I bid any job I figure the amount of paint , and every man hour (including time behind the wheel) that it will take to complete job , then add 10% on top of overall ! It seems to work out good and I still get the job most of the time! All of my work is word of mouth so people who call Me know before hand what I charge , and Im usually within 5 hours and 1 gallon of most of my bigger jobs . Small jobs Im usually right on target ! But adding 10% will take care of any unseen things or that extra gallon or 2 that you may have missed while bidding !
