YOU GET WHAT YOU PAY FOR WITH FREE ESTIMATES / by Keith Moehle

When homeowners are ready to start their remodeling project, they begin by searching for a great contractor. The remodeling industry typically gives estimates before you start a project, but KM BUILDERS knows you're wasting your time if you receive a free estimate.

This may seem like a bold statement since remodeling and free estimates seem to go hand-in-hand, but what we are trying to explain is that the phrase "you get what you pay for" applies to remodeling estimates as well.

The phrase "free estimate" is really a "guesstimate." It gives the homeowner no idea of what the price of the project will actually cost them.

So when a potential contractor advertises that he gives out free estimates, he isn't leading you to a truthful path. Whatever number he comes up with will probably be attractive in price because it isn't reality. He hasn't taken exact measurements, done an in-depth evaluation of your home, or sat down to crunch the numbers to get a proper understanding of the cost. This means that you can end of paying 15%, 30%, or more by the time the project ends.

For this reason, why we NEVER give out free estimates. We offer potential clients an exact quote with a small investment so that they know exactly what they are getting in to. When you sign with KM BUILDERS you will know precisely how your money is being used and how much you will pay at the end of the day; something that you would not know if you choose a general contractor with a free estimate.
