You need to get a full, complete bid for your project. What this means is, you need to know exactly what you’re paying for with this contractor. You want to know if labor is included, what materials are included, what permits are included, what your expenses will be in total. This will limit you from having surprises at the end or even during your project. It also allows for you to adjust your project accordingly to reduce some of those costs. If you need to make changes to the original quote, make sure those changes are documented and signed. There should also be information on any warranties or guarantees that the company offers. Hold onto your agreement until after your warranty has expired just in case you need to seek legal action against the contractor. Also clarify if you’re getting an estimate or a quote. An estimate, is literally just an estimate. It’s a guess on what things are gonna cost. You might end up paying more than what you had expected. A quote is fixed, and there is no guessing. If the company doesn’t want to give you a fixed quote don’t hire them. If you’re considering doing business with Dry Guys and would like to ask us any of these questions or even more, our system designers will be more than happy to answer them when we come out to your home to inspect it and give you a free quote if you’re the homeowner.
