What is a typical Overhead & Profit (O&P) percentage to add to a painting bid? I am negotiating pricing for the complete int. & ext. painting of a new 2800 sq ft house. Thanks for your input.
hmmm, "LeeCoburn" ??? I always thought they looked alike - Lee Marvin & James Coburn
I don't got much to add. Just saw the thread and thought I could advise, but PWG and Brian already said what we all know to be true.
If you don't know your numbers yet, start by sharpening your pencil and figuring out all those costs that incur just by running a business. Vehicle expenses, office help (that's YOU if you are a one man shop), phone, insurance, equipment wear and tear, and so on. I have to assume that you are just getting going in the business and don't have these numbers built up for a long period, so all you can do now is take an educated guess.
But as you progress down this path and save all those figures, you can come up with an intelligent determination. And don't worry, you will always be fine tuning.
