An uncle of mine, for whom I used to work for, once asked me if I knew any painters and decorators for his rental property?
I knew straightway he was looking for an a budget decorator. I said to him the guys I know ask for around £150.00 per day.
He paused for a moment, then said to me he has a guy who can decorate a whole room for £25.00.
I immediately thought WOW! That is cheap.
He said for £25.00 he will paint the walls, the ceiling, the skirting, the whole door and doorframe, the window, the table, the carpet, the sofas, the light switch and sockets and the TV.
Oh no! That doesn’t sound that cheap afterall.
My uncle said he cost him about £900.00 at the end for one room.
I really respected and admired my uncle and still think of him to this day for the many lessons he taught me. No such thing as cheap!
