How much paint to order for a commercial painting job can be a bit art and guesswork. Of course, this can lead to actual cost to the painter being more than expected if either too much paint is ordered or another batch must be made.
That is why many professional painters are turning to PlanSwift to help with estimating needs. Because PlanSwift can handle how much paint will be needed plus other calculations like crown molding, tools, and labor it is a great way to accurately estimate for any painting job.
By using original drawing or plans in just about any format paint estimating can be done on screen from anywhere it is convenient. Simply load the drawing into a new PlanSwift job and start marking up the areas to be painted. After that, all that is needed is to drag and drop a pre-built assembly onto the area and the estimating software will do the rest. In seconds, you will know how much paint you need in whatever size you want, gallon, 5 gallons, litters, or any other measure.
The best way to see what PlanSwift can do for you is to take it for a trial, which is why PlanSwift is offering you their PlanSwift Pro 9.0, the latest version, free for 14 days.
