Many homeowners don't understand some of tricks of home decorating. Whether it's a home decorating company or a water cat team, it doesn't matter if they don't understand home decorating or budgeting. Be optimistic about these nine pitfalls and make a comprehensive comparison. Don't be fooled by low prices and verbal promises. Once you get in, problems behind are really obscure!
Trap 1: Divide it into parts: this is obviously a project, but it will be divided into many smaller projects for you. Such outdoor projects will look low, such as latex paint, how much is one square meter, note. later what little design crafts it includes. And some companies began to dig holes, and painting price was lower than many companies. After contract was signed, there were also wall cladding, wall fixing, interface agent, etc., which increased in total.
Trap 2: Big data tabloid: it's actually size of area. It is believed that area of the project is underestimated, and total cost of the budget will be lower.
Trap 3: Nothing is reported in report: some elements are omitted, meaning some elements are visible at a glance and will not be included in report in first place. For example, for underfloor heating, some prices are below market price, but underfloor heating owners do not know that backfilling, bending or extinguishing will cost extra.
Trap 4: Intentionally providing false information. Some project reforms use old-fashioned methods of communicating with owner, knowing that owner disagrees and then expressing some of their own ideas, after which owner agrees to ask for a high price.
Trap 5: Double Counting: The most common are walls and water and electricity, and demolished walls also count for several times longer in paint area calculation.
Trap 6: Don't show details. Many owners look only at quotes and pay attention only to numbers and not to workmanship. How many coats of primer, how many coats of top coat? Can it be covered? What brand of paint?
Trap 7. General quote. For simple home improvement projects, many owners like one-time purchase price. No matter how high price of a one-time purchase, it must be included in contract, otherwise people will say: not included in price of jewelry that we talked about at beginning, are you sure you bought it yourself? how do you do it There is also a list of products at price of "buy it yourself"! ! !
Trap 8. Correction of process. Speaking of this, we should talk about subcontracting projects. Many intermediary decorating companies do not have their own project managers and workers. They don't have a set of building process standards and site management is a mess too, cutting corners is crazy. Choose a clearance company to go to construction site, see more, see process standards mentioned and whether management is same on site.
Trap 9. Deception. Many decorating companies appreciate some items that some owners want to make cheap. This is market value, and if you don't see clearly, you will suffer. You must beware of these nine traps!
