If you’re a homeowner in the Treasure Valley area, it’s likely at some point that you’ll want to improve your home. Whether it’s a new patio cover, siding, roof, windows, or doors, there are a wide variety of ways to add value and boost the curb appeal. While you might be tempted to aim for the cheapest quote you can get when it comes to any of these projects, there are several reasons why this could end up costing you more money in the long run. That’s why the Boise contractor at Pacific Home & Patio would like to provide you with the following reasons why a cheap home improvement project can cost you more money.
One of the problems with getting the lowest quote possible on a project is that the Boise contractor you hire might not be willing or able to complete the job for the price they are charging you. This can mean that you end up with a home improvement job that isn’t complete or a change in orders because they didn’t disclose any potential issues they might run into during the project.
In addition, cheap home improvement quotes often result in the use of lower-quality materials. These companies tend to use the cheapest material possible so they can make the most profit from your project.
The Boise contractor at Pacific Home & Patio does a job completely and doesn’t compromise on quality to make a quick buck. Cheap contractors, on the other hand, tend to cut corners to increase their profits, which can lower the value of your home while costing you thousand of dollars down the road. Even worse, they can end up compromising the safety of your family through substandard work.
Cheap contractors tend to be poorly qualified compared to professionals. Simply put, they don’t have the skills that it takes to get the job done right. This is often because they are not committed to quality or maintaining a good reputation as a professional home improvement contractor, or they never bothered to learn the right way of doing things.
The most expensive home improvement project is the one you have to repair or replace again and again. If you go the cheapest route, this is almost guaranteed. Home improvement companies that offer cut-rate pricing also cut corners, and get away with it because problems often take years to develop. By the time you notice any issues, any warranty they offer will probably have expired.
Finally, cheap home improvement contractors may not offer a warranty after the project has been completed or they do but they don’t plan on honoring it. In fact, many may not offer any sort of customer service after a completed project because they don’t plan on being in business for very long. It’s a sad reality that many home improvement companies close down only to reopen under a different name to avoid honoring warranties.
The Bottom Line
The bottom line is that you want a home improvement project that costs the least, you shouldn’t go with the lowest quote you get. Instead, you should opt for a Boise contractor that will give you the most value for your money, including high-quality materials, the right skills and certification, and a reputation you can trust. While hiring a cheap contractor costs less initially, the work they provide will become more troublesome and expensive down the road.
