I'm interested in acquiring a maintenance painting account or two.

Perhaps a hospital, school, or even the local pub.

Any advice or info on the subject would be appreciated.

Thanks in advance.

A plumber i knew had service contract with hospital got 50k a year just to be on 24hr call. I imagine other trades would get similar contracts.

Tom, in my neck of the woods, most of the larger facilities you mentioned have in-house maintenance staff that takes care of the painting. Only thing I've seen being bid is specialized type coatings, such as floor epoxies, wallcovering, etc.

I had a couple deals several years ago with property managers of strip malls, doctors/dentist offices, etc. Profit margin wasn't the best, but the volume would keep 2-3 guys pretty steady when nothing else was hitting. We parted ways after they started looking for lower prices.
