Budget is still a major piece to the puzzle when you are considering a remodel, no matter if you are looking for high-end luxury or minimalist. Being more trouble than it is worth when you are looking for a contractor, it is not necessarily optimal, in fact opting for the cheaper contractors is commonly regrettably. Bearing this in mind, we at CA Green Attic & Construction would like to share why the cheaper bid from your contractor is not always the best option.
1) Inferior Quality. Thinking you may have scored a great deal does not mean you will get the fine craftsmanship to go with it. The contractor with the lowest bid will commonly deliver shoddy work where the results lead to costly repairs down the road. In many instances, homeowners will have to hire a new contractor to repair the mess and give you the remodel you wanted.
2) Duration of Construction Project. The project takes far more time than it should. Projects that run behind schedule and take months longer than they should, which are not only a major inconvenience but costly. By opting to use the reputable contractor, who may have a higher bid, the experienced crews with a number of quality assets can, in the long run, end up saving you time with the job getting completed.
3) Stress & Frustration. Increase in stress and unneeded frustration. Having a dependable remodeling company, even if their bid was a little more, can help you better enjoy the experience with the stress-free remodeling projects. Though saving money is always a welcomed option, dealing with the stress and anxiety of using a concerning contractor will leave a bad taste in your mouth which will cause you to stay clear of future projects. Even if the bid is a bit higher, having the peace of mind is well worth the investment.
4) Cost of Remodeling. The bill will be far higher than initially planned. More often than not, the unrealistically low prices for your project is something to be wary about, as by the end of the project, you have excessive charges and fees assessed at the final bill. There are too many times when homeowners have shared that they ended up paying hundreds of thousands of dollars more in unexpected charges by the conclusion of their remodel. You deserve to know the upfront cost, that do not come with surprise hidden charges. Find out the contractor’s policy on Change Orders, so that you don’t receive any unexpected bills and you can predict any changes that might occur on your project.
When it comes to remodeling, the old adage “You get what you pay for,” certainly applies. As opposed to focusing on the lowest bidding price, consider the bigger picture of your entire remodeling adventure. In the end, you want to ensure you hire a dependable contractor who will deliver quality and efficiency. For your next home remodeling project, call CA Green Attic & Construction.
