Colour problems

Having a nightmare at the moment with indecisive customers that aren’t happy with the render colour they chose from the samples. In fact it’s happened a lot. Mono and thin coat. What more can you possibly do than show them a f’in sample?! Another thin coat job finished and I get a text saying they’re not sure about the colour now. Can I go over it!
Back to bagged mortar for me. Let the indecisive ***** piss B&Q about over colours.
Rant over:coffe:

had that before. just say you have to expect a difference in colour from a sample and different lights..

if they want to pay for you to physically make a fresh sample on site then theres not much more you can do

Nightmare mate. I’ve come to dread doing it now.

I always get a bag of mono or sample of thin coat to go on the wall first, square metre, get them to confirm, sometimes I charge sometimes I don't, just depends on size of project then there's no contentious issues down the line.

Thin coat you can use 311 paint over but it will close it in a bit, mono is a bit more challenging, it's stabalizer but it's a different apperence.

Might price a paint but it’s 1mm so like you say it could definitely look different.

I would say a good 90% my customers ask for for off whites I give them a list of local houses I've done,
Double coating primer can make a big difference to colour shade

Even when You did what you was told.. usually it is this the right colour we choose
Them samples in reality never looks the same

As in it’s closer to the samples?
They get to see it in on a project it makes them feel a lot more comfortable than choosing off a sample, and they can't turn around afterwards and say they don't like the colour.

I had the same with a Jub thin coat job, two adjacent wall 90 degrees to one another and the same batch number but no, the bitch was adamant it was two shades!

Pointed out the sun is on one bleeding wall the other is in the twatting shade and buggered off.

Never work for single women there is a reason why they are not married.
