How long will it take and how much will it cost?
This really depends upon the size and scope of your project. Specialty materials and subcontractors can impact the timeline. However, we always want to have a schedule of work determined before project inception so that both client and contractor have realistic expectations. Determining a scope of work, scheduling materials and subcontractors and making material selections ahead can make the project run more smoothly and provide you with an accurate bid.
Is my job too small?
We do a variety of projects from kitchen and bath remodels and tenant improvements to new homes and major renovations. Please contact us so we can learn more about your project goals and determine if we are a good fit.
What happens after I give you a call or submit an inquiry on your website?
We will take this initial contact, whether by phone or web inquiry, as an opportunity to gather some basic information about you and your project. From there one of our project managers will receive this information and reach out to you to further discuss and schedule a site visit. If you are ready to continue moving forward after the site visit we will discuss the next steps in detail with you which include gathering more detailed information so that we can provide you with an estimate.
What is the difference between a bid, an estimate and a budget?
These terms are often used interchangeably, but there are significant differences. We believe a budget is an idea of what a project could cost. This might be used prior to any plans or specifications being developed. Typically, an estimate is a cost developed using historical figures from previous projects. A bid is a formalized version of the estimate where the labor, specific materials and subcontractors are queried and a bottom-line number is determined.
