“Having a good contractor that can deliver your project far outweighs the apparent cost savings of a cheap bid up front.” — Jeffrey VefferWhether you’re planning to hire a contractor soon or in the far-off future, bookmark this guide. The most important thing to remember when tempted by the cheapest bid is that you get what you pay for.Full story: What to Consider Before Starting Construction

A Bid Is Not the Whole PictureAlthough on paper competitive bidding seems to be a foolproof way to get what you want at the lowest price, there are challenges with that approach in real life. If contractors were bidding on something they understood 100 percent, and there were no differences on how they delivered the finished product, then competitive bidding could be a good solution. But just as the same meal turns out different when prepared by three different chefs, the same set of drawings is interpreted differently by different contractors. We have had clients insist on choosing the lowest bid on a job without considering other critical factors, such as experience, reputation and trustworthiness. On a recent custom house, we actually had to fire the contractor from a jobsite when it became apparent the contractor was not building what was actually in the drawings. We had to find and bring in another crew to finish. This is not what you want as a client when you are trying to finish your house. Worst of all, that client now has to pay the second contractor extra to fix up all the mistakes caused by the first one, to the tune of more than $30,000. Not to mention, there’s the time and hassle of having to find and fix all the problems. All of this basically wiped out any savings over a more expensive contractor. Choosing a contractor should never be based on bid prices alone, but a whole host of other factors that your design team will help you with to pick the best contractor for your specific job.Learn the Lingo of Construction Project Costs

In winter, the low-hanging sun naturally heats the recycled concrete slab on the ground floor, which then gradually releases heat in the evening.Photo by Alen Lin
