We always talk about how important it is to plan your home remodeling project before you start it. What materials to choose, which remodeling company to hire, how to choose the design style, and more tips to help you with planning your project. On this article we’d like to focus on the free estimate alone and talk about its importance, how it’s done and what you should ask during the meeting.
Why It Is Important to Get a Free Estimate Meeting?
First of all, a free estimate means that you get it before committing yourself to anything, not to a certain company, not to the project. Second, it allows you to understand what to expect for the project, in terms of budget and time. Third, it allows you to understand what the remodeling company offers before you choose the best company for your project. Forth, it allows you to ask all the questions you may have about the project, materials, ideas and more.
What Should the Professional Do As Part Of the Estimate Meeting?
There are some things that are important to know in order to make sure you’re getting a good solid price quote. First, the estimate meeting must be conducted at the place you wish to remodel – be it your house, your shop, your office, etc. The professional should take real measurements – the kitchen’s counters, the size of the room, the bathroom, etc. – otherwise, the price quote won’t be accurate. The professional should also detail what the price quote includes and what it doesn’t. And that’s where you should ask your questions.
What Should You Ask On the Free Estimate Meeting?
The more questions you’ll ask the more information you’ll have about your project. Now, you probably have in mind the questions you want to ask, but just to make sure you don’t forget anything – here’s a short list of questions to ask on the estimate meeting:
- What does the price quote includes?
- Which materials do you recommend for my project (counters, cabinets, flooring, faucets, sinks, lighting)?
- What are the prices of the materials (which are more expensive, which are more of a high standard…)?
- When can you start my remodeling project and when will it be completed?
These are only the basic question to ask. Should you’re debating about the design style, colors choices and such, you can consult with the professional about that too.
