How do I know your quote is accurate?
We’ve invested heavily in our quoting process. Every quote is checked against thousands of similar projects so you know you aren’t overpaying. If you’d feel more comfortable getting multiple quotes, we can also help to facilitate that process and do an apples-to-apples comparison of each quote to help you make the most educated decision possible.
Can you quote by phone?
In some cases, we can save you from having to meet an estimator in-person if your project is relatively simple and you can provide photos.
How long does it take to get a quote?
We pride ourselves in having one of the fastest quote turnaround times in the industry. However, it can vary by type of project and time of year. Please give us a call at 800-597-4776 and we can give you an approximate quote turnaround time based on the specifics of your project.

What is a Pre-estimate?
On our homepage, we offer a self-service cost research tool that can help you generate a “Pre-estimate” for your project. A Pre-estimate is a reliable labor cost range based on data from thousands of home projects, deep statistical modeling, input from domain experts, and continuous improvements based on customer feedback. A Pre-estimate is NOT a quote but can give you a reasonable idea of what to expect if you have a well-defined project.
Are materials included?
Pre-estimates only include labor costs. This gives you the flexibility to decide how much you want to spend on materials. In many cases, the final project cost will vary greatly depending on your selection of materials.
What could make my project’s final labor cost higher than the Pre-estimate?
Your final labor cost may be higher if your project has special circumstances. We call these circumstances “exclusions” and have defined many of them in the details section for each item on your Pre-estimate.
Many projects are difficult for homeowners to fully define before speaking with a professional. In those cases, an in-person or phone estimate is recommended to give you a realistic quote.
What if I couldn't find my project?
We recommend giving us a call at 800-597-4776 and scheduling an estimate appointment.
