Let’s say you’ve decided to remodel your home. You’ve chosen a couple of remodeling companies to bid on your project. The bids come back, but the prices are all very different. You might find yourself tempted to hire the company with the lowest price. However, choosing a project based solely on price does have its disadvantages.
With every remodeling project there are three elements to consider – PRICE, QUALITY and SERVICE. You, the homeowner are in charge of picking two of these elements. In other words if quality and service are important to you, you should expect to pay a fair price for the quality and service. If price is your main consideration, quality and service may not be perfect. In fact, many homeowners that chose a contractor because of their low price come to realize, after their project is complete, that they should have chosen the quality-minded contractor.
Are inferior products being used to save money?Here are some questions you should ask yourself when considering bids?
- Was something left out of the bid that will cost me money later?
- Will the project be managed professionally?
- Will Lead-Safe work practices be followed?
- Will the company stay on time and budget?
- Will I be happy with the finished result?
- Will the renovation look good long after the project is complete?
