Decoration quotation alert to price trap

  • Detail

Decoration friends know that many owners attach great importance to the quotation, thinking that taking this quotation will give them a plan to grasp the decoration price. In fact, in the process of decoration, there are many places that we can't imagine having to change, or there are better decoration cases that make you more excited. At this time, the quotations provided by the home decoration company for you are actually changing unconsciously. To be frank, your money is increasing day by day unconsciously. Of course, this will cause the price after decoration to be inconsistent with the price previously quoted by the decoration company or the quotation in your hand. So, as a friend of the owners who are not so familiar with the decoration industry, how should we fight with wits to understand the price traps and avoidance methods when making quotations

1. Omit some main materials for hard decoration

some main materials are deliberately omitted from the decoration quotation. The owner is attracted by this quotation with reasonable overall price and signs up readily, but in the next decoration process, the owner will continue to add money for these malicious forgetfulness of the decoration company. To resolve this risk, the owner must require the decoration company to clearly write all the main materials in the decoration contract or agreement, and indicate whether the buyer is the decoration company or the owner himself

2. The trick of changing measurement units secretly

is generally the most difficult for owners to see through, because owners rarely pay attention to the units on the quotation, and not knowing different units means that the quotation figures deviate greatly. For example, if you order a shoe cabinet, the quotation says that the main material is 8mm glass shelf + 1cm tempered glass + mirror + accessories, unit: item, quantity: 1&hellip& hellip; It seems reasonable. In fact, there is no explanation about the size of the shoe cabinet, leaving an opportunity to exploit the loopholes. The owner shall require to calculate according to the actual area, such as wardrobe, shoe cabinet, etc., and try not to take items as the unit, so as to avoid errors in the decoration process

3. Blurring quality, level and specification

this is a common trick used by non-standard decoration companies. Although it states that some materials are required and the quantity of materials is indicated, it does not state what quality, brand and specification materials are selected. The owner shall require each item of the quotation to describe the elements of the material in as much detail as possible. During decoration, pay attention to check whether relevant materials are purchased according to the specified requirements

4. Lower the price of a single item

owners usually ask for advice from friends who have been decorated in advance, or go to the market to understand the price of a certain material, but the information they know is often one-sided. For example, the owner knows the current unit price of floors and tiles, but does not necessarily know the labor cost of floor installation and tiling, so he cut down the price of floors and tiles, but suffered a loss in labor cost. Therefore, when looking at the decoration quotation, the owner should not only focus on the single price of a project, but also integrate the costs of labor, loss and other aspects as well as the costs of other projects

5. The construction process is ambiguous

it is a common fault for most owners to look at the figures without looking at the text instructions when looking at the quotation. They always feel that a digital error will cause losses, and the text instructions must be useless, which is not the case. Whether it is wall coating construction, floor construction or sewer construction, they all have their own construction process requirements. If a process is omitted in the middle, it may cause you a lot of trouble in future life. Problems such as paint falling off the wall and water seepage in the toilet are mostly caused by the poor decoration construction process. Therefore, the owner had better learn more about decoration, try to understand the construction process standards of various projects about indoor decoration, and regularly go to the decoration site to understand the process, which has a certain preventive effect
