I’m just gonna go with the cheapest guy
Any time you pick the cheapest anything, how does that turn out for you? A cheap hotel, cheap meal, cheap shoes. You would never say I’m just going to go with the cheapest doctor. While budgets are real and you want to stay with what you can afford, you want to go with the person who is going to be the best partner for you throughout the project. You want to go with someone you can trust, someone who has a good eye and knows good work, some who is patient and a true expert. There are a lot of moving parts in a construction project and you want to make sure you hire the right person for you, not necessarily the cheapest. This is your home, important stuff. Cost should be assessed among your choices but I would not recommend it is your deciding factor. You know those contractors that ‘run out on people’ – most of the time they ran out of money and didn’t charge enough for the project. It is usually true you get what you pay for.
