• Do the estimates you receive from contractors really cover all your project needs?
  • Do contractor’s estimates present a real picture or what they want you to see?

Free estimates will not reflect all the information you need to evaluate when deciding on your project, furthermore free estimate may serve the contractor more than you if the information presented is lacking or not completely accurate.

Gathering 3 estimates is what most people do and probably will stop at when taking on a home remodel or ADU construction project, there is much more then price estimates to consider when you are about to take on a home improvement project.

You should take into account and research about the steps that need to happen before construction will begin such as:

  • regulations and codes
  • design
  • plans and permits
  • selecting materials
  • creating scope of work
  • what are the steps of qualifying contractors and their estimates
  • time frames and budgets

Once you have tackled all those you should be ready to gather estimates and make a selection on your contractor.
