CHOOSING US AS YOUR CONTRACTOR
As no important job interview begins by negotiating a salary, hiring a contractor should not be any different. We encourage you to first evaluate us a qualified builder and proper fit for your project. Ask any question you like and take the time to speak with our previous clients. Your choice here is very important as it will reflect in your experience of the day to day building process and your anticipated finished result.
We depend on our outstanding reputation to serve our customers and take pride in offering excellent service and value. We solicit performance assessments after completing a project to improve our services and provide you with a direct resource for evaluating our performance and delivery as a company.
After all, we are all about service.
GETTING A FAIR PRICE
We hold the responsibility to run an efficient business so that we can pass on a fair price to our customers.
Every professional contractor marks up it's costs a certain percentage to cover overhead and profit. Our company overhead and profit rates are competitive and are within the industry standards for our business.
We offer great value, exceptional service, and professional expertise combined with a fair price.
Before we begin the cost planning of your project we will share our current contractual rates with you for your evaluation.
Many of our suppliers offer us “trade discounts” we pass this savings on to you.
There are no “hidden costs” or “bidding strategies” applied as we work to build your project.
Our cost planning approach replaces the traditional bidding approach by assuring that choices of quality verses price will be made by you. We “lay the cards on the table” and work together as a team, openly sharing the costs of building your project. We are building a relationship of trust and confidence before construction even begins!
Our job for you is to assemble a summarized spread sheet costing of every aspect of the project from planning through completion. We work together to make any modifications and/or adjustments as needed for alignment to your budget. Our finished product results in a viable working budget to contract and build the project with fiscal responsibility.
The fee we collect for cost planning is fully credited upon commencement of a construction contract.
ESTIMATING AND BUDGETING
We consider cost estimating to be a valuable service and integral part of the project planning and development process and devote substantial time and resources to developing realistic budgets during the beginning stages of a project.
A contractor who engages in the competitive bidding process incurs the expense of estimating as well; and, because that contractor usually has to bid a number of jobs in hopes of landing one construction contract, he has to work that expense into his pricing on contracted projects to recover costs.
Because we view estimating and budget-planning as an essential part of our project development services, we bill that cost directly rather than augment the costs of projects we build with the costs expended on competitively bid projects that we’re not awarded.
In essence you don’t pay us for “other jobs” that we bid on but were not awarded as in the case of the competitive bidding contractor.
