How to estimate painting jobs with confidence.

Learn everything you need to know about the “time-based method.”

Pricing painting projects accurately and fairly is an incredibly time-consuming and difficult task for business owners. You have to calculate price quantities, space, cost of labour, the time it will take to complete a project in more.

Time-based methods of estimation, however, cut straight through that.

We’ve put together a completely free guide to help you understand how time-based estimation works, and how you can apply it in your business today to start increasing your profits and significantly reducing your busywork.
