Bid management is part of Essential Key #3 and we take it very seriously.
Your bid is only as good as the specifications you give your contractor to build their bid on. When obtaining multiple bids, you want to be able to compare and contrast them to maximize your project. Bid management is the key.
The only way to accurately compare bids is to use an apples-to-apples approach – and this type of bid management approach only works for you if each bid is crafted and detailed in the same manner. As a homeowner, you can ensure this will be the case by providing each contractor the exact same detailed remodel specifications.
Once you are comparing apples-to-apples the power of decision making is in your hands. You will be able to focus on all aspects of selecting a great contractor – cost, referrals, scheduling, quality, craftsmanship and personality compatibility.
