The Difference Between a Consultation and an Estimate

Proudly serving:

If you’re interested in remodeling your home, you’ll likely come across two starting points as you search for the perfect general contracting company in Southeastern North Carolina — consultations and estimates. An estimate is a quote on how much your project will likely cost, while a consultation consists of an estimate and a detailed discussion of your project. At Your Dream Home Improvements, we believe a consultation is the better option. Keep reading to learn why, then contact us to schedule your consultation.

Allows Clients To Share Their Vision

A consultation is a discussion between the homeowner and the contractor to help clarify their goals and vision for the project. During a consultation with Your Dream Home Improvements, you can discuss what you want to achieve, your budget, your timeline, and additional concerns or questions you may have. It’s an opportunity to ensure that we understand your needs and preferences.

Provides a Detailed Quote

Because a consultation is a more detailed conversation than an estimate, you’ll receive more specific pricing for your project. When you meet with Your Dream Home Improvements, we’ll discuss what your remodel will entail, so we can provide you with a close estimate of labor and material costs.
