Only 67.6% of homeowners surveyed by Qualified Remodeler Magazine felt they were treated fairly with regards to cost.
The most common thing I hear when speaking with potential clients about budget is that the remodelers that they have spoken with simply say, “We can do the installation for X Dollars. Just let me know when you’ve figured out what you want and buy your product and we can get started.” There are so many challenges with that statement that I don’t even know where to begin.
Here is what typically happens:
The homeowner signs a contract for labor only or labor and “some” of the materials. Once the materials are finally selected, the remodeler exclaims, “Oh! That cabinet, tile or fixture is MUCH more difficult to install and so… we’ll have to charge you an extra $1,000.”
The homeowner makes assumptions about what products cost and once the final list is put together, the total significantly exceeds the amount expected.
An unclear scope with significant lack of detail is created and once into the project, the remodeler claims these details were “excluded” from the original budget.
The key to managing a budget is to know exactly what you’re getting BEFORE you sign. The challenge is that most remodelers don’t work through selections with you.
