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!

There are two sides to this and everyone will have an opinion.  I can tell you that from a contractor's point of view a customer that is up front with me is much easier to work with and the entire experience is much more pleasurable to all parties involved.  If you treat your contractor like there's always something to hide from him expect the same in return.  A good contractor is going to take your budget into consideration and make recommendations based on that budget.  When possible, he's going to estimate the work 10-20% under your target to leave room for the unexpected.  With any remodeling work, there's always the possibility and likelihood that there will be surprises that will have to be added such as mold damage, improper existing framing, etc.  The cushion allows room for the project cost to grow without going over your budget.  If no problems are found and you decide to spend that money some of the final finishes can be upgraded or other projects added.

Another good arguement for disclosing your budget to your contractor is to save you both some time and aggrevation.  You may have a $10,000 budget and want $30,000 worth of work.  Wouldn't you like to know your desires aren't possible before you get your hopes up or spend money on design fees for plans you can't afford?  Likewise, the contractor doesn't want to put in the hours of calculating the estimate only to find out it was all for nothing or that he has to refigure for a much lower cost after pricing what you specified.

Be fair and honest with your contractor if you expect the same respect in return.  You'll get a lot more out of it with the right contractor.

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.

You should always get a set of print and pull a permit when remodeling you home. It is a good thing that you want to be involved in your project. I do have some reservation about the electrical work. There is a lot at risk with doing the work yourself. If the house burns down you will never get the insurance money, unless your a certified electrician. Now of days 90% of home fires are blamed on electrical problems because the insurance company is to lazy and cheap to investigate the true problem. Also find out if the city you live in will allow you to perform the work. Make sure you coordinate your subs to have the proper time and space to perform their job. You don't want people working on top of each other. If you order all you materials make sure everything is there before you start your project. Have your subs check for proper and full items to be installed. Make sure every sub has a working set of prints. Make sure you have all the demo done before your subs show up to work. Schedule your plumber first, do any final framing or electrical work while you wait for inspection. Electrical inspection next followed by framing, insulation, and wallboard. All subs must get a final inspection on the job before you (the GC) can call in your final inspection.

Horrible Experience.
Their poor work caused 3 MAJOR leaks. The first was DURING construction where one of the workers accidentally turned on the water while working on the bathroom. The caused water to run down to our second floor, causing damage to the ceiling.
2 years after the project, the same bathroom leaked water down to our dining area, causing damage to the ceiling over our
Coldspring Remodeling Contractors Provider Name Locked
table. We called them to fix it and they came, did a little caulking and said they fixed the problem, refused to do anything else, didn't fix our damaged ceiling. Good thing my dad could help us fix the leaky pipe and re-do our ceiling.
3 years after the project, we have water damage in the ceiling of our master bedroom. Water was leaking from the roof that THEY did. We didn't want to call them but they should be held accountable. It took a few weeks because they said they couldn't come work on the roof due to frigid temps. fine. When they finally came, they said they re-seamed the part of the roof near the chimney. The communication was poor. Only asking them to please explain what caused the problem and what they did to fix it, did they explain. If you don't explain, how do we even know you even did any work? They refuse to fix our damaged ceiling.
VERY poor work. I would never use them again nor would I recommend them to anyone.

... , We had a kitchen upgrade including new counters, floor, painting, plus installation of new sink, garbage disposer, cook-top, & range hood. Work was begun 3 weeks later than promised & the project manager, who assured he'd be here to supervise, was out of the country the whole time that the work was in progress. During that time, the counter top had to be re-done, since it wasn't right the first time, plus debris from the demolition plugged the drain & we had to call in a private plumber. The electric cook-top was the last item to be installed, & we wound up ordering 3 different ones, as they said the first 2 were defective. Finally, on the 3rd one, they sent an electrician, & he discovered that the problem was in the electrical system of the house. The whole process took 3 months, during which time I had only a microwave with which to cook. This is without putting in new cabinets! We signed the contract on 9/10/14 & work finished on 12/31/14.

We used

Door for a bathroom/living room remodel.
They finished with the work last week, and I could not be happier with how it turned out.
They were able to give us a beautiful new bathroom, and turned a wall in our living room into a pony wall
with a granite bar on top. All of their guys knew their stuff and paid attention to detail. They were on time. They listened to our ideas and suggested some of their own when we asked. I am very pleased that I decided to let them do this work on my house, and in a few years, I will probably call them back for the kitchen.

All in all it went very well. The work spanned the holidays so there was some expected delays. When the tile in the bathroom was first installed there were some problems with the subfloor not being level. The contractor pulled up the tiles, re-leveled the floor and reinstalled new tile no problem. Workers arrived as scheduled and worked hard to complete the job. Some delay in getting the correct plumbing for the claw foot tub but they were able to side track another order that was not urgent and get us the required parts sooner than expected. That was great because it was the only thing left for them to do. We have been enjoying our new bathroom very much! The General Contractor (

remodeled both of the bathrooms in 2012. I was happy about the job. I am more impressed that they
still stop by to fix the bath door issue, without any charge! To me, the service after job done is more important.
