Why not accept the lowest price bid for my paint project?
While it’s very tempting to take the low bid, it may not be the best idea. Most paint estimators base their price on the cost of materials plus the cost of labor with overhead and profit. If you go with the lowest bid, then you are paying less for the materials and/or you are paying for less labor. That means the low bidder may be taking short cuts to cut costs, such as not prepping adequately or using lesser quality products. As in almost everything else, when it comes to your paint project, you’ll get what you pay for.
