HAMILTON HOUSE PAINTERS

PRICING SCHEDULE

OUR PAINTING PRICE SCHEDULE:


Hamilton House Painters wants you, our valued customer, to get the best possible painting work performed, at the best possible price. It is our goal to make you happy with your choice of us as your painters; we NEVER want anyone to regret having hired us. By working with us, we will not only save you time and money, but, we hope to offer you "peace of mind" as well.


Here are some tips to reduce your costs , and "speed up" your painting experience:


1. If possible, make sure the areas we are painting are empty of furnishings. This will allow us to paint the area properly, without having to spend time moving and covering furniture, etc...

"Time is money," as they say, and the more time you save us, the more money you save. Of course, if you would like us to do this, we are happy to do so.


2. If you cannot remove the furnishings, but, are able to move them within the room yourself, place all large items in the center of the room prior to our arrival.


PLEASE NOTE: we require FOUR FEET (1.2 METERS) of CLEAR WORK SPACE AS AN ABSOLUTE MINIMUM for each wall we are painting.


Cover all of the furniture or other items with "poly" (plastic sheets) and, seal everything off with masking tape. To save even more, cover all of your flooring with "poly" sheets as well. "Prepping" the area(s) to be painted takes most of the time and labour, so doing even this much will save you $$$$. Again, if you need us to do this for you, it is not a problem, however, we bill this service out at $45.00 per hour, with a minimum one-hour billing. Hours are billed in 15-minute increments after the first hour.


3. If you are painting your entire home, and you wish for it to be done all at once, it is highly advisable to either "go on vacation" (if you can) or stay elsewhere until the painting is complete; this is particularly true if we are to paint or stain staircases. This will allow us to properly "seal everything up" prior to painting, which protects your belongings and speeds up our clean-up at the very end. And, of course, this saves you money! Again, if everything is sealed and protected, the home will be largely "unusable" or "unlivable" for a few days. And, if we are spraying, you really cannot be in the home in any case.


Why not take the money you save, and pay for part of a "getaway" for you and your family!




We employ hourly labour rates, "square footage" labour rates, standing labour rates, and/or a combination of the three methods to calculate your pricing:


We are so confident that that we offer competitive pricing, and more importantly SUPERIOR VALUE with our services, that we are willing to POST OUR PRICES ONLINE... check around... NOBODY DOES THAT! We are not worried about what "competitors" may do. We KNOW we charge FAIR rates, in line with prevailing market conditions. We are a "VALUE PROPOSITION" for our customers; we may not always be the "lowest" price, but, we always aim to provide the very best overall VALUE... we stand by our work, and, even warranty our labour and installation services. And, we know that when compared "apples to apples" we normally come out ahead - and so do you!

We firmly believe in hiring and sending out the very best, most experienced, and most productive painters and other tradespeople we can find. Quality staff deserve superior pay; and this is why we are not the "cheapest" company around. And, please consider: do you really want to to hire someone to work on your MOST VALUABLE possession, based on them being the "cheapest" as their only selling point. Enough said.
