HOME IMPROVEMENT: THE LOWEST PRICE IS THE BEST OPTION – OR NOT
A MISCONCEPTION ABOUT HIRING A REMODELING CONTRACTOR
Choosing the lowest price saves you money.
This is not always true! Although a low price seems tempting, you must ask yourself what is the contractor omitting or what shortcut is the contractor taking?
A True Story:
One roofer’s price on a job was $300 lower than the other price estimates. The homeowner wanted to save money and accepted his proposal. After the roofer installed the new roof covering, all the old shingles, tarpaper and nails were lying all the way around the house in the shrubs, trees, and grass. When the homeowner saw the debris strewn throughout his yard, he was enraged! The contractor told him that cleanup was not a part of his proposal and that was how he could do the job for less money than the other contractors could.
Signs of Trouble
One of the most common signs of trouble ahead is someone offering to do work for less money than others do. Like anything else, you cannot get something for nothing. Be careful of choosing your home remodeling / general contractor based upon the lowest price.
