Our quotations are specific, detailed and based precisely on what we have discussed and what you have asked for when
we came to give you a free consultation at your home.
What Is An Estimate?
An estimate is just that- it is simply a rough guide (usually verbal) to give a householder a rough guide to the
cost of a job. We advise not to accept estimates as the basis for jobs and never accept verbal estimate or verbal quotations.
What is a Quotation?
A Quotation is something far different: In our case it is a written detailed list (what we call "A Schedule
of Works") of all the items that are to be included in the job, and the type of materials to be used, and the price.
We only supply a written quotation and never a verbal estimate or quotation. Our quotation is dated, lists name
and address, and refers exactly to the notes that were made on site with you when we came to visit to discuss your needs for
our Quotation will include the following:
1. Price (and whether it is labour and material or labour only)
3. Schedule of works: this is a detailed list of all the items which we discussed with you about what you wanted
done. we ask you to check this list carefully to ensure that everything that you wanted is included.
4. Timing: An approximate start and finish date.
: It will also outline (a) matetials to be used (b) type of finish (eg matt or silk etc) and
(c)colours. (please also see the page: The Materials We Use )
