When Can I Expect My Estimate?



When can I expect to see my paint estimate?
At Painting Oregon we strive to deliver your estimate within 24 hours of your paint estimate appointment. Many times your project will have many different factors that need to be researched prior to providing a total cost of your project. Our estimators usually have four to five estimate appointments per day. Depending on the complexity of your painting project, each estimate can take up to two hours to complete. We take the time to assure that all recommendations, services, products, and your preferences are all accounted for.
A simple project that does not require a lot of paint prep prior to painting can very well be delivered within hours or even on the spot. On the other hand an early 1900’s home with many layers of failing paint and a five paint color scheme can take many hours to complete. If you request for multiple line items for your project the time to break individual costs add a lot of time on our spreadsheets. We have worked hard to create a process to capture your project measurement information as efficiently as possible, but every project is different so it’s more of an art than a science.
We understand that waiting for the cost of maintenance on your home can be frustrating and exciting at the same time. This is why we have created our PRICING page to give you a good idea of how much your interior or exterior painting project can cost. We base our painting quotes on a combination of labor hours to complete the project, paint and materials cost, and a set overhead cost. If your project is outside of Portland city center, gas and travel time for our house painters to arrive at your project will be calculated into your quote. These are just some of the items that are factored into your quote before we present it to you. We hope that this post helps you understand the time that it takes to create your professional house painting quote.
