Estimating Practices

Estimating Practices
Estimating a faux finish job is extremely difficult without seeing the room. There are many variables that make the artisan’s job easier or more difficult. For instance, high ceilings require climbing a ladder or installing scaffolding and will increase the price. The artisan needs to see the project in order to provide an accurate price. Beware the faux finisher who rattles off a price over the telephone. A “general estimate” over the phone may be acceptable.  The Artisian must be able to view the project to give accurate quote. Even if you provide the dimensions of the room, the artisan needs to see the job site. A price quoted on a job unseen will invariably increase as the job progresses because of unknown variables.
