The Least Expensive Contractor is Often the Most Costly

Picking the right contractor for your project can be wonderful, but picking the wrong one is a costly mistake.

Generally speaking, there are two types of contractors…those that want to GET the job and those that want to DO the job.

Those that want to get the job often make unrealistically low bids, only to jack up the price later while construction is underway. They take you hostage, knowing that it can be prohibitively expensive for you to fire them and start anew.

Those that want to do the job make realistic estimates that don’t sacrifice quality or service OR leave something out just to beat another company’s price.

Remember, you get what you pay for.  Hiring the lowest bidder sets you up for cheap materials and shoddy workmanship, with you ultimately having to pay MORE to get quality materials and the work corrected.

Contractors that want to do the job are really not more expensive than contractors that want to get the job because they provide you with build quality and real value…a project done right, on time and on budget.
