Painter's Credo

- Tools and equipment make the trade. Buy the best you can afford

- Prep time pays for itself and more… don’t rush to start

- Always buy enough paint (and especially wallpaper) to see you through the job

- Maintain a clean working environment free from dust and debris

- Take time to protect owner's property such as floors, rugs and furniture

- Follow manufacturer’s recommendations and allow enough time to dry between coats

- Compare and match colors under non-reflecting natural light

- When preparing quotes, be sure to allow adequately for move-in/out, surface prep and/or repair, furniture handling, leftover material and adverse working conditions

- Do not underbid just to be competitive. That is a recipe for failure in the long run

- Create a fair (standard) cost estimate of the job, then apply a discount (or surcharge) if you have
