While some contractors may initially deliver low bids only to elevate your costs little by little as the job progresses, we at VT Contracting believe our clients deserve an accurate estimation of the entire job cost — from start to finish — with no surprises along the way.
By taking the time to analyze blueprints, discuss your lifestyle to determine your needs, and even help you select your finishes and trims, we ensure our bid is as precise as possible so you can rest easy knowing the job will finish within your budget. All of this is accomplished through the three-part consultation process we initiate for every potential client.
The decision of who will build your home is an important one. We understand our potential clients want to do their due diligence in vetting and selecting a contractor, and we strive to make that process as easy as possible through the initial consultation.
During this meeting, we will look over your plans together, assessing and discussing your wants and needs. We pride ourselves on asking the right questions to understand your life on both a big picture scale and down to the details, which allows us to customize your home so that it anticipates your needs and reflects your stylistic tastes.
Through this open dialogue, we will together establish your budget and set mutual expectations for achieving your vision.
Delivering An Accurate Estimate
After the initial consultation, our VT Contracting team will get to work to deliver you the fairest and most accurate bid possible, as soon as possible.
As 2nd generation contractors with more than 10 years of experience building custom homes in Lake Charles and the surrounding areas, we have devoted our careers to developing strong relationships with vendors and subcontractors to provide you with the best available materials and labor at fair and reasonable prices.
We will consult these trusted partners regarding the plans outlined in the initial meeting, establish anticipated costs for each aspect of your build, and schedule a second meeting to review with you a detailed estimate and bid for your specific project.
During this second meeting, we will break down the estimate in detail, illuminating where and how funds have been allotted to ensure your build encompasses everything you have requested while still meeting your budgetary guidelines. Our goal in this meeting is to make it clear what it will cost to complete your build and why you can trust our estimate is accurate and fair.
Second Meeting: Question & Answer
Now we go over and through the bid and answer all of your questions. We’ll break it down in detail so you can see where the money is being spent.
Client Review Period
Reviewing an estimate for a custom home is no small task, which is why even after a thorough review of the document together, we encourage you to take some time to consider all the information that has been presented. Call us during this period with any questions or concerns you may have or to schedule another meeting if you like — we are here for you.
Once you have decided on VT Contracting for your build, the real fun begins. Together we will make your dream house a reality, and we will strive to ensure you enjoy every part of the journey to living in your new home.
