Stop Defending Why You Charge for Estimates

from Qualified Remodeler

There is definitely a difference in opinion about charging and paying for estimates. Some remodelers say it’s not fair to do so; others say, as professionals, they deserve to be paid. Some consumers are OK paying for them, while others will tell you you’re a crook for charging because “every other contractor does them for free.” I actually believe estimates should be free — because they are typically worthless. An estimate is a guess and should not be confused with a fixed price proposal. Our industry needs to correct that misconception and misuse of the term.

If you are tired of being insulted simply because you expect to get paid for your expertise and time, read on for some help. more
