Eco-friendly home building and remodeling needs a different approach compared to traditional, established method of building. Typically, the homeowner, you, approaches a designer who designs the house, according to your descriptions, ideas, dreams and desires. The finished design will be given to several contractors for bid.
The overall contractor consequently contacts his/her green business to obtain bids from their store for framing, roofing, plumbing, heating, ac, excavating and foundation work, landscaping, interior finishes.
The bid prices derive from the interpretation from the sketches by each contractor. Rarely perform the subcontractors speak with one another throughout the bid process. Rarely may be the architect contacted with questions. Rarely may be the homeowner, you, contacted. The contractors’ final bids usually include a summary of exceptions and/or perhaps a contingency allowance, that might not be used, but is compensated for on your part anyway.
Homeowners most frequently accept the cheapest bid. Why don’t you? Unless of course you understand and be aware of construction business, be aware of contractor’s quality of labor, the other criteria would you apply?
The process outlined above frequently leads to considerable construction cost increases, dissatisfied homeowners and often lawsuits.
Huge sources are now being neglected and missed when homes are remodeled and built the standard way: Experience and trade-specific expertise, which can save you time, money and headaches.
