Thank you as well Gina and family 😊
Mike was able to provide a same day estimate and started the job within a few days. Our property was vacant and during an extreme heatwave but he finished on time and the paint was perfect. Looking forward to working with him again!Aug 4, 2019Verified"The Paint Guy"'s reply

- What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?My painting service total estimate is based on how many hours I believe it will take to complete the project, plus a few varying factors, which include: • Location/size/ and scope • Type of job (interior versus exterior). • Painter's experience. Thumbtack for 3yrs. Professionally painting for 26 years. • Season (Exterior painting is preferred in late March to October. Estimates are always free; large or small. To give a reasonable and fair accurate quote of your painting project(s) I need to meet the customer in person to do a schedule walk-through.
- What is your typical process for working with a new customer?For starters, I make sure that me and the customer are on the same page when it comes to the expectation of the job. Making sure I have a solid understanding of the project. What are the customer's specific goals and outcomes, and will they give me a fair evaluation. Agreeing on a work schedule with the customer. A start date, and when does the customer need to know you're accepting the project. Discuss salary and terms of payment.
