That depends on a couple of things. If it is a referral and you are comfortable and he has met all of the above criteria one estimate is probably good. If it is not a referral then I would get three. Those three estimates need to be on the same scope of work so you can compare apples to apples.

I got three estimates and they are all different in price… by a lot, why is that

There could be several reasons for this:

  • Scope of work is not the same
  • Insurance verses no insurance
  • Type of materials used
  • Attention to detail
