How to Choose the Right Company’s Estimate. I’ve heard a lot or people a lot of times tell me their methods of choosing a contractor.The most common:
(1) Pick the Middle priced bid, because it’s most fair. If only life were so just. It’s always best to compare apples to apples. Outline the differences between your estimates in scope of work and costs. Compare what is actually going to be done to assess the value of the total project before making a decision.
(2) Pick the Lowest priced estimate because it’s the cheapest. While, it’s true that you often-times get what you pay for, sometimes you really can stumble onto a deal. Use good judgement, check into the company on BBB or other review based business like google or yelp. Ask for a portfolio to see past projects, consider overhead costs of that company. And, if still in doubt, ask if payment can be submitted on completion of the project. We do not collect a down payment on many of our projects.
(3) Pick the Highest price quote, because that means they’ll do better. The same can be said as above. You get what you pay for but sometimes you might just be getting ripped off. This is why getting multiple estimates is usually the way to go.
The bottom line: Always compare services, quality and costs to understand the value of what you’re getting. Ask questions, as many as you can. If the contractor is put off or doesnt have answers, you will probably not want to work with them anyhow.
