There are five critical mistakes that remodeling contractors commonly make when developing a project estimate. So reports Remodeling.

Understanding how to avoid them can generate a sale and help prevent contract-related disputes down the road.

  • First: try to avoid using square-footage estimates across projects. In remodeling projects, conditions that are sometimes hidden until a project is started, and accessibility can affect actual cost.
  • Second: communicate clearly with subcontractors and allow them to do the job they have the expert training for.
  • Third: write a detailed plan for the home owner. Review the scope of the plan and make sure they are as clear as you are on the work to be performed.
  • Fourth: save money by planning the work and sticking to the work plan. Remodeling contractors can lose money due to delays in deliveries, insufficient staffing, and poor communication with crews.
  • Fifth: don’t overlook the small stuff. Think about the completed job ahead of time, what cosmetic details might be needed once work is complete?
