Hey guys. Thanks for your advice on the hat banding.
I have been painting for the last two years, doing some quality work compared to what I have seen. I have been following standards and not cutting corners. I have happy customers but because of the extra time I am taking my profit margins are not where I would like them to be. How can I improve this, any suggestions?
For some of you guys out there this is old hat but here are some of the frustrating issues I am experiencing: :wallbash:
-How do you price out a closet or house full of items? Do you let the customer know you will not move their items and risk them going with another company?
-What if you scratch the customers floor while moving a piece of furniture for example or damage the furniture, who is responsible?
-I had to remove window treatments, Hunter Douglas Luminents "very sensitive" for a re-paint and when I went back to insall them they would not function properly.
-When I did some drywall repair I had to remount a glass shelf, the bracket didn't hold and the shelf broke. It was pretty costly to replace
-I have a pretty decent handle on estimating my production rates but when it comes time to put-back and clean up, i.e. outlet covers, air vents, shelves etc. that's when it starts eating into my profits. Any advice?
