What to expect from Contractors

It is the generally accepted to not pay more than 50% as deposit or the minimum “cost of products” on larger projects with the remainder on completion. Phased labour payments or Item completion payments are normally used on lager projects. Never pay the full amount upfront, ever. Its just not how its done.

Insist on an Itemized quote!

A good Quotation will lay out the steps of progress with prices attached.
Be careful of a “one overall” price as you simply do not know what you are paying for. As the say “If it is not on the estimate, it was not listed for delivery.  

We have great trust in our contractors, We call them Trusted Tradespeople.
