In a prior article, this blog addressed the false conception held by some individuals in the Victorville region that a job that promises speed sacrifices quality. A good construction contractor like Murphy Construction can easily deliver both factors to a client’s satisfaction. Let’s delve a little more into the costs of construction factored into construction quotes.
Communication with Contractors
A good contractor will be in communications about this added cost ahead of time or have an agreement in place with a budget for unexpected costs that a crew can use for immediate problem solving on a job site. It’s easier to maintain a schedule with a little flexibility and planning built in for unexpected situations.
Itemized Markups & Materials List
In the last instance, the contractor will provide an itemized markup and materials list to the client with an agreed upon mark up between the two parties to reimburse the contractor. It is a normal and fair practice. Additionally, if a contractor has to store materials over a long time for the client, it is also fair that a client may receive a bill for storage costs.
