Last week I received an email requesting a free estimate for a basement finish. I went over to the house and evaluated the project and within 48 hours had sent over a bid to the homeowner. A few days later I got an email asking if I could complete the project for $13,000. This is a 900 sq ft basement finish with 10 foot ceilings. I did not respond to this request. The next day I received a phone call from the homeowner asking me if I could do any better on the estimate and to let him know by the end of the day. He told me he was getting estimates from all over the place and would like to see if this was my best price. YES! That is why I took the time to put the bid together. This guy is taking advantage of the amount of people that are out of work right now. I can't help but think that his project, will not turn out well.
