Definitions and terms
A reasonable evaluation of what a particular job will cost based on known factors, materials and past experience. It is close, but is rarely exact and may be lower or higher according to the variables encountered, is typically the most fair and cost effective way of doing a job.
The preferred method for ours and any business really, as it is the least time consuming and therefore most economical to the customer.
A quote is a fixed price based on an estimate. Worst case scenario situations are added to that to come up with the cost for the “quote”. This typically will be more, since the contractor will need to ensure that he will not lose money on the job. A lesser preferred method for many businesses, since it less accurate and sounds more expensive.
