There is always more to an estimate than just the painting, if you give a price to paint 6 doors, 5 windows and 1200 sq ft of gwb remember the,

SURRPTUCU and the travel time, pets , kids , other trades in your way, bushes, roof pitch, staging etc....

The pdca estimating guide will tell ya to add at least 20-25% to your bid after all the prep and painting to CYA.....

SURRPTUCU is taken from Estimating Paint Costs by Dan Gleason printed in 1989 by Craftsman Book Co. one of the best books written on running a paint business.
