Potential pitfalls that could result from getting a free quote from a contractor

Making mistake in the estimation after you’ve had your free quote

When you get a free visit from a contractor it is only natural for a contractor to make a mistake in the estimating. Think of it this way, It could take between one and two hours to create an estimate for your bathroom renovation, this is excluding the visit and driving time to your house. So in total it could take more then 2.5 hrs from start to finish to prepare you the quote. It is a lot of time for a busy professional contractors for which he does not get paid. That’s why many contractors don’t spend enough time to think about your project and that’s why many of them make a mistake in estimating and as a result in the final pricing.

Not Charging enough: when a contractor realises he’s made a mistake in the price not in his favour, the first thing he will do is try to recoup the losses. There are many ways to do that. The most common ones are creating extras out of thin air, skipping work to do another projects – could last for weeks, rushing the job, skipping construction steps, using the cheapest materials. If you notice some of this behaviours it could be a sign contractor made a mistake in the estimating.

A lot of people are attracted by the lower price simply because they think why to pay more when I can pay less after all both companies will do the same (install tiles, install vanity etc..) READ MORE ABOUT DIFFERENCE IN QUALITY and OUR PROSESS

Overcharging: a lot of times a contractor marks up by much more than required to avoid making a financial mistake. He wants to give himself a piece of mind by adding some percentage to the price so that he doesn’t have to spend time thinking about the scope of work for your project as required. This will result in you overpaying for the job. Sometimes it could be by as much as 50%.

So what is better undercharging or overpaying? Neither but overpaying will probably make you project go smoother and with a better quality then underpaying.
