Whenever you consider hiring a professional to work on any part of your project, it is helpful to get several estimates for the work. This will give you a clear sense of the range of costs of the work and enable you to weed out estimates that are either exceptionally high or exceptionally low. Letting the professionals who are providing estimates know that you are considering several estimates will encourage them to give you an accurate estimate. Construction cost estimating is something you can do yourself, at least to obtain a ballpark estimate by using our calculator. It is very important to use an estimate form with each person providing an estimate on the cost of certain work. You cannot compare the estimates until you know the estimates are based on the same work, the same quality of materials, and the same schedule. For examples of estimate forms, check our website at www.remodelestimates.com.
