Why do you need to Plan and Design?

Many Contractors will give you a price for their work within seconds of viewing the job site. This is a terrible approach. Here's why... This method may ignore key design elements of your project, and details of materials and installation methods. These estimates also typically underestimate actual project costs. 

  • contractors need extremely specific details from you to provide an accurate bid, details that often require planning and design
  • they rarely include everything, and will ultimately lead to changes and change orders that will raise the ultimate price you pay
  • planning without setting a budget is the single biggest mistake a homeowner can make concerning their renovation
  • major decisions left till after renovations are started can cause delays, and problems for the homeowner, contractor and trades
  • to effectively compare quotations, the scope of work must be extremely well defined

Remember, most qualified and reputable contractors reject competitive bidding because a detailed and comprehensive estimate involves an incredible amount of time and effort. Investing in this process, only to lose the job to a lower and less thorough bid, does not make sense.
