Operating as usual

[08/17/21]   Client- “ how much to paint inside of my house?”

Me- “how many sqft?”

Client- “2100 sqft, about 1700sqft actual living space”

Me- “walls and ceilings?”

Client- “yes!”

Me- “Since we are painting walls and ceilings and everything 2 coats, as if it were raw Sheetrock, I’ll just charge a regular sqft price minus the extra for prime coat. Also we use sherwin Williams product and stand behind this product. If you have a preference on a different product that’s is fine. We just will not warranty any paint unless it’s sherwin Williams product. That’s if you have us supply paint.”

Client- “That sounds good on pricing and no I use Valspar from Lowe’s, because it only requires one coat. I’ll buy the material. With it only using one coat will that affect your price?”

Me- “No cause we always apply two coats per manufacture warranty. Which means the manufacturing company will not warranty the paint if you do not apply two coats and do the required surface prep.”

Client- “So I’m going to pay you to paint something twice even if it doesn’t need it? That does not make sense and sounds like a gimmick, for you to not have to fix mistakes in the job at the end?!!”

Me- “No, it actually protects you and me! For one if the paint is messed up and doesn’t dry or the color fades quicker than normal etc,,, if we apply the two coats and do everything asked of us while using the product then it will be under warranty from the manufacturer. Meaning they will reimburse/ give you more paint to fix the problem without you paying anymore money. Also this protects me, to where as long as I do my job correctly, I will get paid. So I can’t get blamed and be responsible for something not my fault.

Client- “Don’t understand the big deal, it’s just paint. So how much are you going to charge me? Can you just do a price for one coat and then a price for two? I’ll take responsibility of any mess up cause by the paint, I am supplying!”

Me- “Of course, it’s going to be $3400 for two coats, on walls and ceilings. Which is $2sqft. Now for the price of just applying the one coat.......will be....the same exact amount of $3400 and that is $2sqft! Either way I’m going to do things right cause I’ve been talked into cutting corners and it’s always cost me money and ended up being my fault. While doing exactly what I am told I end up losing and coming out of my pocket.” I charge a fare price and do the job from start to finish the correct way. I’ll do whatever is asked of me but I will do it the right way.” Also that price I gave you include us supplying the paint from sherwin Williams. If you want to supply your own paint that is fine. My price will remain $2sqft. I encourage you to get other estimates.”

Client- “Very confused and don’t understand at all, why you can’t just use my paint and apply one coat and give me a discount. So I’m going to use someone else, thank you”

FIVE MONTHS LATER......TO THE PRESENT DAY!!! LITERALLY TODAY!!!

Client- “ Hey Jake, I understand if you don’t wanna message me back, but I found someone else to do the job. Well they did exactly what I asked and used the paint I bought. They only charged $1500, well basically the paint is peeling off everywhere and is starting to fade. I picked out the wrong paint. Lowe’s isn’t working with me at all cause he didn’t use two coats nor did he prep anything out properly. Can we start over and I’ll pay you what you asked and you get the paint this time?”

Me- (After I doing the money dance) “ Sorry but I’ll have to charge extra at this point cause now I’m going to have to scrap and prime everything at this point. Now I’m gonna have to charge $3sqft cause I’m gonna have to buy primer and also it’ll take a extra day or two of prepping.”

Client- “Do what you have to, to get it done right!”

MORAL OF THE STORY IS DO THE JOB CORRECTLY AND LISTEN TO THE PROFESSIONALS. YEA I KNOW EVERYONE WANTS A DEAL BUT WHEN IT COMES TO YOUR HOME DONT CHEAT!!! IT WILL COST YOU THIUSANDS MORE FOR A SIMPLE LITTLE CHEAT!!!!!!!

We used an oil base stain here to protect the new wood on this deck! If you are building a deck or have one, you should put some type of waterproof coating to insure you have no rot!
