How to get a fixed price from a builder
Most Clients, no matter the size of their construction project, want a fixed price for their works.
This is because 1) they want to be sure they can afford the works before starting and 2) they don’t want the stress of arguing over money during the project.
Requesting and agreeing a fixed price from a builder is a difficult process and must be approached with caution.
The simplest analogy I can give you is this: you walk by a restaurant and see a sign outside saying ‘three course meal £9.99 per person’. You walk in with your partner and one meal later pay £50.00 for your meal. How did the price go from £20.00 to £50.00? Well, its because the meal did not include for drinks which the restaurant knew you would also order. And then one of you ordered an extra side and you included a 10% tip. The point is this — if you do not have a realistic fixed price from a builder then the costs will rise.
