I am working with a vendor and am having some trouble understanding their estimate. I've only ever done work for homeowners and never messed with vendors, but I figured I'd give it a try. Over the phone, the guy told me he wants me to demo and install kitchen cabinets, remove old vinyl flooring and install new, remove the old carpet (but he said someone else will be installing it), some drywall, and painting. He said he wants me to take a look at it on Monday to tell him how much everything would be for my services. So I received the work order in an email and it has the jobs listed that we talked about, but also has other things on there like removing the refrigerator, replacing the garbage disposal, and a bunch of other things. None of these line items have any dollar amount beside them, except at the bottom, it says $1,535.15. So I'm confused. Is that amount what he is planning on paying me for my portion of the labor? I don't understand why he would have said to come out and let him know how much it would cost if there's a dollar amount at the bottom of the work order. Does anyone know what he could be meaning by all of this?
