Porches and Sunrooms

Porches and sunrooms can add space and character to any home. From helping to create a unique look to the many benefits that they offer to the homeowner, these structures have the ability to add visual appeal and extra living space to any home when properly constructed.

Todd said it best.

An itemized list / cost breakdown, more often than not is used against the contractor when it is shared with other builders who will then beat it.

Good contractors use good people, and good people cost more.  Just the cost of having the appropriate insurance / bond can be the difference between winning a job or losing it ot a 'lower bid'.

It is the rule of three; there is Good, Cheap and Fast.  You can have any two:  Good and Cheap, won't be Fast; Good and Fast, won't be Cheap;  Cheap and Fast, won't be Good!

When comparing bids, it isn't the cheapest or the 'nicest' person you should select.   You should understand why there is a large price difference (it shows there are gaps in your design program or what you have asked for specifically, which means there may be arguments later).  If most of the bids are in line, and one is way high or way low,  you want to know why before dismissing or selecting them.

A price-only decision almost always costs more in the long run. 

Good luck!

No.  Heck no.  Here's a good example.  We very recently needed to find someone to install about 500 square feet of exotic wood flooring (we already have the materials).  We contacted about 12-15 top-rated Angieslist contractors.  Out of the few who did get back to us, we got 5 quotes, 2 of them were literally just over the phone.  They "didn't feel it would be necessary to even see the space". 

 

Here were the bids: 

$4000 (sight unseen), $2800 (sight unseen), $2500, $1500, $1450

 

We didn't "share our budget for this".  Why would we?  We asked them to bid the job.  That's it.  All of them should be well-qualified and they are all highly rated.  We were interested in how THEY value their time/resources - for an apples/apples job. 

 

Do you still think that you should tell them about your budget?  Your choice.  From my standpoint it isn't their business.  I'm asking them to bid on a project.  Invariably I'll get some very high bids, medium bids and a few more reasonable ones - ALL from "highly rated contractors".

For this type of job, you need plans and specs from an Architectural/Engineering firm before thinking about contractors - and to get a building permit. Ben's method would work and done incrementally could cost well over $100,000 plus as he says, but this not really the most economic way to approach this big a job. A House Mover or Foundation Underpinning specialty company can usually slide your house onto a whole new foundation, or jack it up on steel beams and hold it there while a basement is dug underneath it, without any intermediate piers. The jacking/move cost would probably be on the order of $30-40,000, and a new basement probably about $40-50,000 - rough ballpark, though I have been involved in some 1000-1500SF single story jobs that went for under $70,000 total. I have been involved in a fair number of these type jobs - and the way the numbers come out, if there is room on the property to move the house, it is almost always nearly as cheap or cheaper to build an equivalent square footage (basement plus ground level) addition rather than add a basement under the house, and that way your new footage is half above ground so worth more on resale, plus you do not lose use of the house for a month or two. Second cheapest is usually sliding house to a new foundation, if property is large enough to do this - though house is totally cut off from utilities for a week to three. Most expensive, and usually only done in tight city environments or with full 2 story or higher houses, is adding the foundation in place, though your utility interruptions should be on the order of hours at a time rather than days or weeks. Talk to an architect - I think you will quickly lean towards the addition option rather than adding a basement - it is just too expensive to deepen foundations in most cases, plus you WILL get cracking in the house and possible water and sewer pipe problems in a move/underpinning job, which is not the case with an addition. This become more likely the case since you want to add 8 feet off the back of the home anyway - so why not just enlarge the addition and do it all that way - MUCH simpler, and MUCH less disruption of your life, and you get much higher resale return on your investment.

Herlonginc's answer stated that it is not the contractor's job to pay for materials and labor to do the job. I say baloney - a reputable, established contractor has the funds (or a business operations line of credit) to "carry" the job between interim or partial payments, each of which should be keyed to completion of distinct easily measured mileposts in the job, and for a homeowner I would say should be in not more than 20% increments for jobs exceeding a week or so. For shorter jobs, then an initial payment, 50% completion, and completion would be normal. His cost of carry funds is part of his cost of doing business, and is figured as part of his overhead.Bear in mind when he is buying materials and paying labor, his materials he typically pays for on a 10-30 day invoice, and his labor typically a week or two after they work, so he is not really "fronting" that much money if you are giving him weekly or biweekly interim payments, on a typical residential job.

If he does not have the funds to buy materials (excepting possibly deposit on special-order or luxury items, which still typically are 10-30 day invoiceable to him) and hire personnel then he is a fly-by-night operation, and he should not be bidding that size job. You should never (other than MAYBE an earnest deposit of not more than the LESSER of 10% or $5000) let the payments get ahead of the approved/inspected work progress - typically payment should be 10-20% BEHIND the progress, with at least 10% retained at the effective end of work until final inspections and completion of the final "punchlist".

That promotes rapid continuation of the work, discourages the all-too common nightmare of contractors taking on more work than they can handle so they leave your job for weeks or months to go work on someone else's job (frequently to start that someone else's new job so he can get the job), and does not leave you out a tremendous amount of cash if he does not finish and you have to hire another contractor to finish the job. Remember, if you have to hire a new contractor to finish the job, he will charge you a lot more than the original bid to finish someone else's unfinished mess.

This may seem cynical, but having started in the construction business about 50 years ago and seeing the shenanigans that a lot of contractors pull you cannot be too safe. You have to remember contractors are like any other people - I would say maybe 10% are outright crooks, another 25% or so will pull a fast one or overcharge if the opportunity presents itself, maybe 30% will do the work but not any better than they are forced to, about 25% are good conscientious reputable workmen, and the last 10% or so are really spectacular - conscientious, fair, and efficient craftsmen. This top 35% are the only ones you should have bidding in the first place. Therefore, only get bids from long-term reputable firms (so you shake out the marginal short-timers with less experience and also generally less ability to finish the job on budget and schedule), only those that have good RECENT references, and preferably with excellent word-of-mouth recommendation from people you know and trust. That way, you are starting right off with the cream of the crop, so hopefully whichever one bids low should be a good choice.

NEVER start with bids, then check the references of the low bidder - why even consider a vendor or contractor who you do not have faith in from the start ? Get references and short-list you possibles BEFORE you ask for bids.

Low bids - that is another matter - commonly the low bidder is NOT who you want, especially if he is significantly lower than several others, which might mean he is desperate for work, made a math error, or did not correctly figure the entire scope of work. You want a reasonable bid with someone you connect with and trust - that is worth a lot more in the success of the job than the absolute lowest bid.

My husband and I built our home in 2010 and as our family has grown, so did our need for more living space. We desperately needed a bonus room to use as another family room and have enough space for the kids' toys and for entertaining. We were EXTREMELY hesitant about hiring a contractor however, because our original home-builders were not trustworthy ...More and had poor workmanship. Our home is only 3 years old and we have had too many problems to list here concerning repairs we have had to make due to shoddy and careless workmanship. Our original plan was to sell and buy another home, but we like the area we live in so we decided to find a contractor, but this time we were committed to finding just the right company. My husband called about 20 different local general contractors and out of those 20 called, about 15 actually responded. Out of those 15, with was one of two companies that promptly returned phone calls and emails. His quotes were easy to read, straightforward, and within our budget. Another plus for me, was that everything was SPELLED correctly in the quote! The first impression gives upon meeting him is that he is friendly, trustworthy, diligent, precise, and honest. It felt as if he was almost too good to be true! But, it WAS true! The budget and time frame he gave us were accurate. He was here every day with a tool belt on, directing his team and making sure everything was done correctly. In the middle of our job, had to go out of town, but before he left, he and his crew worked 2 - twelve hour days and 1- fourteen hour day to get the job to a certain point to stay on time and budget. Now, that's commitment to excellence y'all! Every single person brought onto the job site was courteous, diligent, and performed excellent workmanship. You didn't see a crew standing around smoking every 10 minutes or constantly knocking on the door asking for anything. They came here prepared to work and work they did. I am at home during the day with my children and some days, I didn't even know they were here! You won't hear loud music or loud mouths. also keeps a CLEAN job site. Every day, the work area was swept and materials stacked neatly in piles. The painter that works with him is amazingly precise with his work. I am a perfectionist and I couldn't find one mistake by the painters. 's communication is excellent! If he sees an issue, he is going to let you know and then work with you to get it resolved. If something is off by a centimeter, he is going to start over until it's correct. Anytime my husband or I had a question, he was never too busy to talk it out. His manner is very calming and cheerful. He was never defensive when asked a zillion questions. He was here on our job for a total of 8 weeks and now when he knocks on the door, my youngest son who is 15 months old runs to meet when he sees him and reaches up to be held. will just scoop him right up and play with him. As a mother, that gives me great peace of mind that my children are so comfortable with him. They trust him and so do my husband and I. I can't begin to describe the peace of mind that has given us concerning our addition. We know beyond a shadow of a doubt that this job was done properly and according to code. It's beyond refreshing to meet someone who takes pride in their workmanship and goes above and beyond what is required to do the job well. I feel like we've made a new friend in and his wife, who works with him. He is someone we trust and our trust is not easy to earn. Thank you for making this the best experience we've ever had with construction!

I used & a couple of years ago and they're actually coming back out in about a month. I was very pleased. They were on time, finished the job in their estimate, their cost was reasonable compared to others that I had quoted and the quality was excellent. I recently called them out for the hail ...More damage so they'll be coming out to re place it.
