MEET AND GREET
Having met with the owner and project manager is a serious step towards moving forward on your new renovation. By providing a quote beforehand without first evaluating the customer’s needs in some cases is needed but it should be taken with caution. With so many styles of pricing jobs it’s a dangerous route when one is not properly assessed. In order to be accurate give yourself and the contractor some time to evaluate the entire project scope. Many contractors will need to stop by and visit the location to fully grasp what is needed. There are many steps towards a finalized quote.
