- What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?Each and every job is different. There is no set pricing when it comes to this kind of work. Here's an example. We're going to look at two houses that want vinyl siding done. The Jones' home is a one story ranch house, with 1200 sq. ft. that need to be covered. There are no bushes or trees that will get into our way when we are working, we can reach all of the walls without so much as stepping onto a ladder. Their neighbors, the Doe's have the same house, except that one wall of their house is on the edge of a 40 ft. drop off. Even though the Jones' and the Doe's have essentially the same job, one is much more difficult and time consuming than the other, and more expensive. There are a lot of factors that go into effectively pricing a job.
- What advice would you give a customer looking to hire a provider in your area of work?Insurance, Registration, and Warranty. Insurance, Registration, and Warranty. I can't stress the importance of these enough. These are the three biggest things a contractor can offer in order to protect the homeowner. Anybody thinking about having a home improvement done should get multiple bids. The recommended amount is three bids but more is better, especially once you throw the lowest one away. There is a reason that the lowest bid is the lowest bid, and that reason is that there is only so cheap a job can be done correctly for. The next thing to do is examine the highest bid. Ask questions. Why is this the highest bid? Does this persons work and reputation warrant their price? Nine times out of ten you will find that one of the middle bidders will do work just as good as the highest bidder.
