Frequently Asked Questions
How can I send my plans to you?
We have made this process easy for our clients by allowing you to upload directly. Just click on the Send Plans button on the Estimating Services page and complete the online form.
What information do I need to send for my estimate?
The following is recommended as a minimum to complete a detailed estimate:
How long does it take to get my estimate back?
How do I know the estimate will be the right price?
This will depend on the level of information that we receive about the job, we will need your help for this as well! Remember we will be part of your extended team and clear communication is important to us. We help this process by giving you direct access to our estimating notes while we are estimating, that way you can comment and add requirements for us to include as we go.
How much does it cost for you to complete my estimate?
Can you use my price lists whilst estimating?
Absolutely we can, in fact we encourage you to provide as much pricing and quotes as possible! It is important to ensure that you have a competitive quote, so we make sure that the pricing is as accurate as possible and relates directly to your business.
What do I get when you have finished my estimate?
Do you provide a fixed priced quote for completing the estimate?
Estimates are charged on a percentage basis as per our Fee Structure and Item 3 of our Terms & Conditions of Trade.
How do I know when you will commence my estimate?
Estimates will not be started until confirmation is received by you advising that the scheduled date that we have given you is suitable to your business, and all relevant plans and information is received by us.
What happens if another Builder submits plans for the same job?
We will only complete one estimate per job and preference will be given to the first Builder who submits the job.......so first in, best dressed!!
