The following is a testimonial from an owner/builder, Murray Haseler in Queensland.
I found the estimate an effective way of evaluating and negotiating quotes by builders - it put us on a more even level and saved them some work. Handy when one has little background in construction.
I am now moving away from quotes and hope to now do a cost plus arrangement to see the costs directly. The estimate will make sure we both have a clearer view of the likely costs to come - and a clear basis on which to discuss differences.
