Why do you need a Billdr estimate?
Failing to define your scope of work from the start will cost you time and money later.
Traditional contractor quotes lack details
Contractors focus their efforts on confirmed projects, with little time for detailing work on unsigned contracts. Their quotes can be free as those require less details.
Change orders can often arise during construction
Without a detailed review of the project scope ahead of construction, you run a greater risk of encountering surprises during construction that will result in additional cost.
Contractor quotes are hard to compare
Without a standardized bidding process, contractors quotes can vary greatly in format since each contractor has their own way of interpreting a renovation project.
Proceeding to the design phase without a clear scope will cause delays and costly changes.
Final designs may exceed allotted budget
Architects and engineers are not contractors and cannot provide accurate construction prices. Many owners are forced to modify the plans once the bids have been received to adjust them to their budget.
Difficulty in making key decisions
Many homewoners lack proper guidance and support in making critical decisions during the design process. This can lead to costly design changes and delays during construction.
