The answer is simple, it takes a lot more time, thinking and research to compile an itemized proposal compared to a free simple quote. We believe that a highly itemized quote is absolutely essencial if you are attempting a complex bathroom renovation with twice the amount of items in the scope of work compared to an average renovation. There is no magic formula when it comes to producing the quote for complex projects. Every project is different and has to be custom tailored and carefully thought out.
An itemized and written proposal will act as insurance for you and also for us. It will prevent things like "I think it was included in the price" or "I remember I was mentioning it to you" coming from the client and "I wasn’t charging you for this" or "This wasn’t included in the price" coming from the us. It will allow you not to get overcharged with extras at a later stage of the project (known trick for contractors) and have much smoother and less stressful renovation experience. You will know exactly what’s being done to your bathroom and what’s not. In the event where there is a dispute or suddenly arising extras you can refer back to your document and see if this particular element was listed or not.
The reality is that a free quote is merely a gimmick to get people into your house and try to sell you their services or products and try to prove to you that they’re better than their competitors. So what you get from the "free in home quote" is usually mostly a presentation at best and with the occasionally selling techniques and very BASIC written quote or a verbal quote consisting of a price range which is not doing you any good. What you actually need is an ITEMIZED proposal broken down by each specific step that must be taken to SUCCESSFULLY complete your project and also by corresponding pricing so you can understand where the total price is coming from.
Our approach is a different. We believe that our work and multiple successful projects and reviews speak for themselves and we don’t need to convince you to go with us. However, to come up with a professional quote takes time, knowledge, additional research, and experience. We believe this time has to be compensated if at the end you’re not going with our company. However, if you do decide to go with us – great, we’ll gladly refund this charge towards your security deposit.
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 up to one hour 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 up to 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.
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 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.
