Default Hi from BC

Hi,
I am Norbert.
I am a Painter-Master from germany.I am 55 years old and bin in painting since 1973. I left germany 2007 and worked for a painting company in Kamloops, BC,CA.
Last year my boss closed his company.I have now my own business lycense.But i still can,t figure out what a ggod painting company charged for one hour here in Canada.My Customers often tell me after i am finished: You are very good and also so cheap.But I don,t want to be cheap, better reliable.
So, can you help me?
Thanks and have a nice day,
Norbert

Welcome Norbert, I myself am new to this forum and from Abbotsford, BC, not too far away! It sounds like you have a lot of experience painting, and as owner of your own business, for quality work I think it's pretty reasonable to ask between $35-$45/hr for your personal work.

At least, that's pretty typical around here...
