The Construction Triangle
When you are looking at getting estimates for your upcoming kitchen remodel, bathroom remodel, home remodel, or home improvement project in San Francisco, Oakland, Walnut Creek, or San Jose you need to consider what I call the construction triangle.
The construction triangle consists of three points, cost, quality, and time. With these three points you can only choose two of them. You can have cost and quality which will take a little bit longer. You can have quality and a shorter time to complete the remodel which will cost more or you can have cost and time which will usually end up in poor quality and frustration.
Within these three points, there are three types of contractors that meet two points each.
First, you have the cheap contractor he will save you on your cost and your time but will not have good quality. These are the contractors we all have heard nightmares about, they've either taking forever to complete a project or they've completed their project in a timely manner with poor quality, or even worse they took your down payment and you've never heard from him or seen them again. These are the contractors we all want to avoid.
Then there's the expensive contractor this contractor completes your projects in a timely manner with good quality, however, he tends to cost an arm and a leg charging high dollar amount such as $35,000 for a bathroom model or $45,000 for a kitchen remodel. these are the contractors we all want to have but just can't always afford to have on our projects.
Then there's the middle ground contractor, this is where S&C Construction always aims to shoot for. These are the types of contractors that are few and far in-between as they tend to hit almost all of the three points. They have good communication before and during the remodel, they complete your project with good quality and in a timely fashion. They are just slightly more expensive than the cheap contractor but much less expensive than the high-end contractor. These are the contractors that once you get ahold of you never want to let go because they're so hard to find.
So remember when choosing a general contractor near you in San Francisco, Oakland, Walnut Creek, or San Jose for your Kitchen Remodel, Bathroom Remodel, or Custom Home always consider which two of the three points on the construction triangle are the most important to you and what you want to accomplish with your new space.
