Painter charging by hour or by job?
We had a quote and it was a per hour price, said it would take 3-4 days. Do painters generally charge by the hour or by the whole job?
I can see it both ways. If it is by the hour, we can ask him to do other things along the way, fixing a wall, etc; but per job, it is just "what the contract says."
Is charging per hour risky because we really don't know how long it will take? I have no reason to think that he would work slower. He did give a range of 3-4 days. Thanks!
