Amongst all the reasons a contractor is selected, pricing can be a deciding factor. Even our natural sense/intuition of making the right selection, having a contractor that is right in front of you with a great reputation, can still come in second place. When it comes to making the right choice, I can’t touch basis on anything more important.
Often a lower estimate is appealing when finding someone to do the work. Like most consumers, we may get more than one estimate of which have different price ranges. In some cases, there may be a larger than normal price range from one to the other. You may not understand why, so a comparison of “apples to apples” should be taken. Often estimates are based on your contractor’s overhead expenses. In order to operate in a legitimate, productive, efficient, responsible business manner, it entails reasonable and proper operational expenses. These operational expenses are important to service clients with our best ability, and function in a manner that is safe. Insurances, proper income for our employees, and other current California laws are huge variables. I’d like to touch on one of the most common and extremely necessary insurances that protect you as a consumer, and protect our employees.
