I’m trying to figure a price on exterior paint job. The job is apartment buildings; 48 decks, windows, 4 staircases, 55 posts and 80 exterior doors? How can I figure a good honest price for such a job?

Simply put… you can Piece it out… ie how much per door, window etc… but the best way is figure out how much 1 man can get done in say 6-7 hrs (1 day) then figure out the total # of days required and decide on how much you want to charge for a day for 1 man and multiply it by the total… add cost of paint and materials plus say 5% overhead and submit your bid…
