"I really wanted to use you, but I found another company who can do the work for half the price!"
I recently did an estimate for a couple in La Jolla who had never used us but had heard good things about our company. They wanted us to look at some detailed painting inside their home and also look at a complete exterior paint job. The interior estimate ended up being acceptable, but when I asked about the exterior estimate I sent them, they said they could not afford us and signed with another company. I was a little surprised and asked her a few things to see if I or the other company missed something. My question was, "How long did the other estimator say it would take to complete your project?" They replied, "The guy said he would put two painters on it to start and then add a third guy and try to get it done in a week." It was at that point, I knew that the other paint company's job would not last long!
The home I looked at had not been painted for many years. It had lots of detail, doors, windows, and trim and needed a lot of prep that could not be done thoroughly in 1 week with 2-3 painters. Our estimate specified 3 painters for a full two weeks using very high quality exterior finishes that would last and would help solve some of the peeling and mildew issues on the home. This other company is very well known and had a decent reputation but also was not very detailed in the preparation on exterior paint jobs. I knew this because our company had just repainted the exterior trim of a home in La Jolla that was painted less than 3 years before by this paint outfit. The surfaces were not thoroughly prepared before applying paint in our opinion. So, when I heard how long the job was going to take and that the price was half, I knew that in the long run, the COST (not the price) would be more! By estimating the job with a quality preparation and product, I know our job would take twice as long but last quite a bit longer.
