After 30 years in construction and working for other company's I decided to start my own residential remodeling company. I always do a lot of research first before leaning on others but I find myself struggling with something and the answer is alluding me. Specifically on full bathroom remodels and what I call the big three. Vanity/top, plumbing fixtures and toilet. How do I get these into the bid accurately when the customer has not picked them out yet but I want to get the deal sealed. I also see these as "personal" to each customer so even letting them buy them on their own seems to be a area of friction because then they say " so this is the price and I still have to get the vanity/toilet and fixtures? I am not in a position to put a catalog in front of them because I don't deal with a distributor so it seems impossible to give them a total bid. Also I cant just assume $***x amount then have them pick out a vanity that costs twice as much. Also I am missing out on some markup by having them go buy their own materials. I don't want the best of both worlds I am just throwing out there what's on my mind. I don't feel as professional as I should be when I have to exclude these items from my bid. Man I hope this makes sense to you guys.
