Painting and decoration works do not have fixed costs and much of it depends on where you stay and the painter you choose. For example, the cost of hiring a painter and decorator in London might be almost four times higher than hiring one in other places.An effective tip is to decide the amount of money you would lose when you take out time to do the work by yourself and then compare the cost of hiring a painter.

When searching for a good painter and decorator in London, make sure you ask about the costs that need to be paid for the services offered. On this basis, you are not encouraging him to avoid paying the tax, rather you offer to pay cash for the work to be done.
However if the painter works for a specific brand, then they will provide you a quote which is 20% inexpensive than the quote obtained from a big painting company. Depending on your type of work, painters and decorators are happy to perform small jobs in order to keep themselves engaged and usually quote an affordable price for the customers.
Another place where you can save money is by purchasing materials on your own or informing that you will pay for the materials separately and require copies of all the receipts from your painter.
It is not unethical for painters and decorators to include 20% to the cost of materials used for covering the price to purchase them. Also, they do not want to bear the risk if not getting paid on time at the end of the job. Make sure you pay for all the materials purchased which will make the painter and decorator happy and satisfied.
You will find that there is much more involved in painting and decorating works than knowing how to use the paintbrush or roller. We want you to be confident when you ask a painter to provide you a quote for painting your property. You can recognise from their answers what they are exactly talking about. You can also ask for free quotes and compare between them to choose painters and decorators for your need.
