M&P15T Posted December 4, 2018 Share Posted December 4, 2018 ....asks me for a "quote", "estimate" or "bid" on their kitchen or bath project, I will have blood on my hands. I am so friggin' sick and tired of those coming in here that don't understand a single thing about remodeling, other than what they see on T.V. Let me all drop some knowledge on you; there is no such thing as a quote, estimate or bid that is worth the piece of paper it's printed on. That stuff is all crap, and usually represents about 1/2 of what the final cost will be. Don't do business with anyone that has "allowances" in their contract, everything should be spelled out 100% in detail, with detailed costs and descriptions. And figuring out exactly what the true cost will be, is a lot of time, effort and energy on the home owner's part. You have to choose the products and materials, work the design out in all it's possible variations, and then help with determining the scope of the labor. This is real work, and takes time, effort and energy. Jesus.....I don't know if these friggin' TV shows help or hurt us in the long run. They give people such grossly incorrect perceptions and attitudes about how projects go, it's just frustrating beyond belief. Rant off. 1 Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
