Homeowners Present for an Estimate Appointment

Why do Home Improvement Companies ask for Both Homeowners to be Present for an Estimate Appointment?

This question is frequently asked by homeowners and understandably so.  This question is not meant to offend anyone in any way.  The reasoning behind it is quite simple and sensible.  When scheduled, a good contractor or sales representative will come out to your home, do a presentation, show samples and talk about pricing.  If there is only one homeowner or significant other present during this vast discussion, all of this pertinent information will then have to be translated from one homeowner to the other.

There are many details that go into choosing the right windows, doors, siding or roofing.  One homeowner may want grids on the windows when the other does not.  One homeowner may be interested in 16′ vinyl siding panels when the other homeowner likes the look of 25′ panels.  These specifications need to be explored and will reflect in the overall price of the project.  Avoid future confusion by fitting this initial meeting into your schedule.  Make it a point to be present!

The Better Business Bureau suggests that all homeowners and/or significant others be present at the time of the initial home improvement estimate appointment.  Their records show that if this collaboration occurs, there are generally less complaints overall.  Everyone is on the same page from day one.  Opinions have been heard and questions have been answered.  The BBB has seen this to be the most efficient way to start the renovation process.

Owning a home is not only expensive, but also time consuming.  Sometimes we need to take the time to be there.  We all have busy lives and can relate to the “there isn’t enough time in the day” mentality.  It seems like we can’t fit one more thing on our never ending To Do Lists.  However, any type of home improvement renovation is relevant and important to involve all homeowners, significant others and decision makers.
