How can I get the best deal for home renovations in Atlanta Georgia?

Finding a good contractor in Atlanta can be a real nightmare. The other day a prospective customer called said he and his wife felt they could trust Schantz Home Improvement more than the other companies they met with. He wanted to choose the Schantz team, but had received one quote about the same, and one significantly lower, more than 20% less. He asked if we could match.

Significant price gaps in proposals should be a big red flag. Much like buying a car, if the specifications are exactly the same, the price differences shouldn’t be that significant from contractor to contractor. Sure, there will be some variances, but 20% is unlikely, especially on a larger project.

The prospective customer gladly faxed a copy of the proposal. The contract was one page which said simply, “replace roof” and ” 5-year guarantee”. Other than that, it was simply the contractor information and the customer address. It doesn’t matter who the contractor is or how long the company has been in business. If you ever see anything like this RUN! The entire project is left completely to verbal communication and the homeowner has no recourse if unhappy with any aspect of the work.

Most homeowners will tell you a key reason they choose Schantz Home Improvement is because of our proposal detail. This establishes a high level of trust and eliminates misunderstandings after the project is underway. Some contractors won’t put in detail “because the homeowner won’t understand it anyway.” Our philosophy is to educate homeowners, making them aware of quality differences between materials so they can make knowledgable choices.

So the next time you’re looking for a great deal, make sure you compare the details. The project scope and materials should be clearly outlined, right down to the nails being used in the project.
