Instead of giving you a "guesstimate"
over the phone, we take the time to see the property ourselves
and listen to your needs. When you consider the variables of
building, you can see how a square foot price cannot be quoted
over the phone or given without specifics. Here are just a few
things that can affect the pricing of your bid:
- Do you have a slope on your property?
Drainage could be a problem, even on a property that is seemingly
- What type of soil do you have? This
determines what kind of preparation will be necessary before
building on it.
- Will your lot need blasting? Excavation
is something many don't consider in their original budgeting-be
sure to include it in yours if necessary.
- Will the lot need compaction? Some
soil will require alternative methods to prep it for a quality
foundation and sufficient drainage.
- Will you need well water on the property?
If so, consider how deep you will need to drill.
Assumptions on your part--or worse,
the person quoting your project--is where most of the "horror"
stories of building come from. That's why we make sure to consider
every detail when bidding a project so that you can get an accurate,
fair estimation of the money you'll be investing in your project.
Communication is what your project
needs . . . not assumptions.
