2014 National Painting Cost Estimator

Complete Guide to Estimating Painting Costs for Residential, Commercial or Industrial Jobs

By Dennis D. Gleason, CPE

2014 National Painting Cost Estimator is a complete guide to estimating 2014 painting costs for just about any type of residential, commercial, or industrial painting, whether by brush, spray, or roller. Shows typical costs and bid prices for fast, medium, and slow work, including material costs per gallon; square feet covered per gallon; square feet covered per manhour; labor, material, overhead, and taxes per 100 square feet; and how much to add for profit.

2014 National Painting Cost Estimator Contains:

Includes cost estimating software with an electronic version of the book with National Estimator, a stand-alone Windows estimating program, plus an interactive multimedia video that shows how to use the disk to compile construction cost estimates.

Cost Estimates and Bid Prices for Surface Prep and Painting on Any Job - Brush, Roll or Spray

2014 National Painting Cost Estimator is the most complete, authoritative and reliable unit cost guide ever made available to paint estimators. No matter what types of work you estimate, no matter what your costs are, this book will help you produce consistently reliable painting estimates in dollars and cents.

Craftsman National Painting Cost Estimator provides the most accurate paint estimates for a particular job. That's because no single material cost, no man hour estimate, no pricing system fits all work and all bidders. Your estimates have to be based on your actual productivity rate, your material costs, labor costs, overhead percentage and profit expectations. More National Cost Estimators are available on our Cost Guides page.

National Painting Cost Estimator provides accurate estimates for coating any common surface with any type of paint, whether application is by brush, spray, roller or mitt:

  • Manhours per 100 square feet or 100 linear feet whether the job is new construction or custom repaint.
  • Material coverage rates that apply whether the job is new construction or custom repainting.
  • Material costs that reflect the discount you expect to receive.
  • The labor cost per 100 square feet or linear feet, no matter what hourly wage you pay and no matter what your overhead percentage.
  • The profit margin to include (based on your own profit goals).

This book isn't a substitute for judgment. It's not a simple way to do in minutes what an experienced paint estimator might not be able to do in hours. But this book is the best guide you'll ever find if you have to estimate any type of painting, whether residential, industrial, commercial or institutional.

Dennis D. Gleason brings 15 years of painting business experience to this manual, having worked as a painter, field superintendent, estimator, contract administrator, project manager and director of marketing. After earning the title Certified Professional Estimator from the ASPE (American Society of Professional Estimators), he taught estimating for the Associated Builders & Contractors and lectured at San Diego State University, where he earned his degree.
