When I bid on my jobs, the price is the price no matter if I'm spraying or rolling. I never charge more or less on how I do things. My customers want perfection and that's what they get in the end.

My question was simple and had nothing to do with how I should bid on this particular job.


Thanks.

After enough years...this will become "that's not what it says in the contract"

BTW...
Never put the word "perfection" in your contracts, people.

..unless it's talking about payment "I will receive draws and final payment with prompt perfection"

When I hear the word "perfect" during an initial client meeting, it makes my alarm bells ring. I know we're dealing with potential trouble and proceed with caution.

Perfection is an unobtainable goal, at least in our world. Strive for excellence.

Thanks.
I would go out of business if I charged the same for spray as brush and roll
