Why do I need more than one painter and decorator quote?

When you have a painting or decorating task to undertake and you are needing to find a skilled painter and decorator to carry out the work for you in your home, it is always advisable to ‘shop around’ for quotes and get at least three quotes before deciding on which tradesperson to choose. It is vital that you describe the work needed, exactly the same to all of the tradespeople so that when you sit down to compare the quotes you are comparing ‘like for like’. This is a good time to see what extra’s each painter and decorator might offer you, e.g. one may ask you to remove furniture from a room before they start and another may include taking radiators off the wall before painting whereas someone else might insist you get an engineer to do that prior to the painter and decorators arrival.

Sourcing multiple quotes puts you in touch with the current market value of painter and decorator labour charges as well as giving you a feel for material costs that they might provide (especially if you end up deciding to do the project yourself then you would need to purchase additional’s like furniture covers which they usually provide as standard). Meeting face to face with the different painters gives you a chance to see if your personalities clash or gel, after all this is someone you might have in your home for weeks and need to be able to relate with them and speak to them about your likes and dislikes as the project commences.

What should I make sure my painter and decorator quote includes?

To avoid being misquoted, before you start your journey of finding the perfect painter and decorator for your home project, really take the time to consider what work you would like completed in your home, e.g. if you are after a lounge makeover, consider whether this means just a repaint or whether you would like a feature wall, and is your feature wall to have wall paper or paint with a special paint technique for a distressed or marble style look? Would the lounge benefit from having a cornice on the ceiling? Is there any Artex that needs removing? Consider the painting and whether you want the woodwork (skirting boards, doors…) painted as well as walls and if so in eggshell, satin or matt. Write down all the details you can think of so that when the different painters and decorators arrive you are giving them detailed job descriptions to quote you on.

Ask questions like how many painters will be working in your home, what will they provide (e.g. furniture coverings, bring their own ladders) and what do you need to provide (e.g. the tins of paint). It is always worth asking if they can provide two quotes; 1) you provide the paint 2) them purchasing the paint… as they might be able to get better trade prices on the materials.

Scan the quote to see if you still need to include VAT and if the quote mentions a certain number of workdays, ask what happens if the project runs on longer than expected. At this stage there should also be some mention of whether they will have insurance while working in your home and see if with the quote there are any endorsements from trade associations that they might belong to.

Is a verbal quote enough or should I request having my quote emailed?

To keep yourself protected from any disputes it is always safer to insist on having any estimate sent to you in writing. Nowadays with almost everyone having a smart phone and access to email at their fingertips, there should not be an excuse not to be able to quickly email you over a quote. Having a quote in writing is especially important if there is a time lag between quoting and your job start date because with the time that has passed remembering conversations of promises can innocently be forgotten. At least having the quote in writing gives you both something to refer back to and covers you and the painter and decorator making sure there is no ill will after the job and all agreements have been met.

Waiting for the quote to come through to you in writing, gives you a chance to sit with it and absorb the costs and what will be included without feeling you have to agree to anything on the spot.
