In this article, we wish to talk about the most regular questions asked by prospective consumers that often cause conflict between a consumer and a professional.
I. Expense of work:
Really typically one may come across clients' problems about the total cost for the repair work that appears to be pretty higher than originally anticipated. Let us clarify this. We require to say that we would disregard the scenario (that regrettably occurs) when chasing after client, the professional purposefully provides ignored numbers and when the customer is on the hook anything can be done.
Let us view the standard scenario. You decided to do fix, choose numerous businesses, and inquire to prepare a cost price quote. Instantly many concerns occur e.g. "Is it possible to prepare a cost price quote accurate to a gulden?" In general, it is possible. For this, you would need a comprehensive design with the drawings, specs, list of materials, and so on. It would take numerous months and more to do this sort of expense quote and 2-3% of costs would be designated for contingencies.
Let us be reasonable. Over eight years of experience in handling the business, we had an opportunity to deal with such jobs several times. In the very best case, the style ends up at the stage of basic illustrations with additional stage-by-stage delivery of in-depth drawings.
In some cases we receive basic investments, rough style lays out, etc. However, the most regular scenario is as follows: absolutely nothing is offered or "please do for me what you see in this publication". Can you define what exactly you desire? Who understands? Can you propose something as a professional? Over several minutes of discussion with you the estimator needs to guess what your taste is and propose to you some options in addition to make your dreams, desires, unclear lays out and all that you believed throughout long evenings come to life in the form of concrete numbers. Actually cost price quote is the plan for the repair work of your apartment or condo with connectivity to concrete materials (for example in the bedroom painted wallpaper and in the children's space plain wallpaper will be used) with showing average prices for them.
In our opinion to make this expense quote maximum near-real cost you would need to do the following:
Work with the designers as possible. The costs you incur for the design work will be generously repaid. The cost of redesign on paper is not so high.
2). While preparing a cost price quote it is required to make a list of work and make some decisions (e.g. here laminate and their glaze-tile will be set up etc). It is also necessary to discuss what quality and cost of materials will be used in the expense quote.
3). A client ought to make sure that it is difficult to imagine everything in this document.
Even for the detailed cost estimate, a customer should envision a reserve of a minimum of 0-15%. The higher amount and range of work as well as material prices, the higher cost of work.
Undoubtedly any repair relates to inconvenience and any client would wish to finish it as soon as possible. Let us not become heroes of popular TV shows that describe how brave contractors over one day glue the wallpaper, put the glazed tiles, install the wiring, and even eventually clean everything with the vacuum cleaner.
One should realize that there are some activities that can not be done in rush. Violation of the technology and required terms will lead to additional customer costs.
III. Quality of work.
To a great extent, the quality of work depends on the quality of materials. We all want to save money but you should avoid the absurd situations when you assign work with high-cost materials to people earning pences.
IV. "If I pay, do what I want"
Without special measures, one can not make aperture work or remove a load-bearing wall no matter whether someone wants it. A good professional who values his work would explain why your desires sometimes can not be satisfied and would rather refuse to do the job than do something wrong.
Hope that this short article will help you to discover an excellent professional.
