Just wondering if you guys run it the same as when I worked for student painters over 20 years ago. Basically you the main guy would do the estimating, if you get the job you would tell the crew they have so many hours to complete the job, if they go over they get minimum wage for those hours, if they come under they get the extra hours added on. You would make the guys do door to door two nights a week for free.

Just wondering if its run the same way now as it was years ago? also If I remember right all warranties are performed the next summer? If someones house peels in November from a done the prior month, you don't have to fix it till next summer.

Welcome to PT

Pat

You say you are on your forth year, could you offer me some marketing tips?

What kind of marketing have you used for painting?

Most franchisees do pay piece work...I personally do not.
Im not one for door to door sales as I hate having people bother me at my own house! I use several other marketing tactics that are more succesful.

The warranty work does take time as their is paperwork for it to be approved etc.
