Customize Your Construction Needs and Save Money

Posted on August 26, 2008. Filed under: Hiring Home Repair General Contractors | Tags: , , , , , , , , , , , |

Looking for the right general contractor is a tough chore. It always seems like you start with one price, then end up ten times higher than originally agreed at the end. And what can you do, argue and chance the contractor ceasing operations in the middle of a project? They always seem to offer an estimate that low balls the overall cost, and when it comes down to it they seem to increase the cost of supplies and materials to make up a little extra cash. So why not invest in all of the materials yourself, and just hire someone to put it up? Well, good luck finding a contractor that will agree to those terms.

So instead of the traditional search for a contractor that suits your needs, try MiNeeds, a place where professionals seek to bid on the services you need. Here, a customer from Auburn posted their need for a contractor to build a deck. They had already purchased the materials, and wanted a hired hand to install it correctly. In response to their posted need, general contractors in the customer’s area were invited to offer their services to the customer through a competitive bidding process. After receiving eleven proposals, the customer had plenty of offers to choose from and were able to find a contractor who would allow them to use their already purchased materials, enabling them to save as much money as possible. They only had to figure out labor costs and minor incidentals, which is harder to manipulate in the end result.

This customer also had a big savings on time, and were able to enjoy the comfort of choosing who they felt fit their qualifications without any unnecessary pressure. By having MiNeeds bring all of the interested parties to your doorstep, you inherit more time to be as picky or research as thorough as you want.

Now is the time to save as much cash as possible, and if it means scraping off some of the costs of a construction project by doing it on your own terms, than so be it. You can find more than enough potential professional providers when you browse through the Seattle home repair contractors. And then after you look them over, post your need and get your project underway.

Homeowners should always get at least 3 bids from different contractors (don’t forget to check their references and prior completed projects). If the homeowner provides sufficient detail of what needs to be done, you should be able to easily compare the bids. If there are major differences, find out the reasons. Then, get the bid in writing and spelled out in the contract. The cost cannot change unless you make changes after signing the contract. Be aware that these late changes can be very expensive. You can find more information at my website.
