Protecting surfaces from paint overspray

Every growing painting contractor’s nightmare is not having enough work to keep your precious painters employed.  What’s even more scary is not being able to hire enough painters to complete the projects that you have promised customers you will complete.  Proper planning and hiring forecasting will ensure that projects are completed and your sales goals are reached.  In order to use the spreadsheet below you will need to gather your previous year sales data.  Download the spreadsheet to see how many employees you will need to reach your sales goals for next year.

To get the most from this spreadsheet remove the outliers from your previous year sales history.  This means if your average house is 5k and you do a 100k commercial job, do not include this project in your total sales.
