Blog Getting project estimates Dec 12, 2023

Are you planning to give your home a fresh coat of paint? Or perhaps you're in the process of renovating a space and need some professional painting services? Whatever your painting needs may be, one thing is for sure – you'll want to get accurate and reliable project estimates.

At Akins Trade Services, we understand the importance of transparency and providing our customers with detailed estimates that reflect the true cost of their painting project. In this blog post, we'll guide you through the process of getting project estimates and why it matters.

1. Requesting an Estimate The first step in getting a project estimate is reaching out to our team at Akins Trade Services. You can give us a call, fill out a contact form on our website, or email us with your project details. The more information you provide, the more accurate our estimate can be. Include specifics such as the size of the area to be painted, the number of rooms, any specific painting techniques or finishes you have in mind, and any additional services you may require, like wallpaper removal or drywall repairs.

2. On-Site Assessment To provide you with the most accurate estimate possible, we'll schedule an on-site assessment. One of our experienced painters will visit your property to evaluate the project scope, take measurements, and assess any additional factors that may affect the cost or timeline. This assessment allows us to provide an estimate tailored to your specific needs.

3. Detailed Estimate After the on-site assessment, our team will create a detailed estimate for your painting project. This estimate will outline all the services included, the type and quantity of paint required, the labor involved, and any additional charges or discounts. We pride ourselves on being transparent with our customers, so you can trust that our estimate reflects the true cost of your project.

4. Comparing Estimates If you're considering multiple painting service companies, it's essential to compare their estimates. Keep in mind that the lowest price doesn't always mean the best value. Look for companies that provide detailed estimates, use quality materials, and have positive customer reviews. Akins Trade Services aims to provide competitive pricing without compromising on quality or customer satisfaction.

5. Getting Expert Advice If you receive an estimate that seems considerably lower than others you've received, it's a good idea to seek expert advice or clarification. Sometimes, companies may omit essential services or quality materials from their estimates to lower the cost. At Akins Trade Services, we're always happy to answer any questions or concerns you may have about our estimates, so you can make an informed decision.

Remember, getting accurate project estimates is crucial to avoid surprises or unexpected costs. Akins Trade Services is committed to providing our customers with transparent and reliable estimates for their painting projects.
