I have an idea for this next year and wanted to get some feedback from the pro's.

Do you as a painting contractor offer crown moulding installation to your clients?

If yes, how does this program work for you?
If no, why? It seems that in the right circumstance it would be a good service to offer to your customer.

Happy New Year!

I do it quite a bit, and have two other guys who are proficient at it also. All I can say is you better know what you're doing and can do it in a timely fashion. Sometimes it's best to sub certain things out to individuals.

Since your profile says you're a trim guy.

Go ahead and ask your painter to offer crown and have him sub it out to you.

That is what you're asking isn't it?

Just do it!

Sounds like a painter would be a good source for trim referrals.

You may have to spend some time teaching the painter how to measure and bid a simple trim job.
Running all over to bid little one room jobs would cost you more than you could earn IMO.

If the painter is smart enough to make the price right for you (and leave something for his pocket) it might work.


Both of the painters that I use regularly seem to have rotten skills at qualifying a customer.
---Shame really-----Most of their leads are bottom feeders .
Fine painters both of them--Just can't tell a skinflint from a good customer.
