Horst Warns Owners to Beware of Change Orders
Horst Construction considers it their job—and responsibility—to educate and inform the buyer. The way they do this is by asking questions that help to clarify the grey areas of a specification document or offer alternatives, when their experience dictates a better approach.
All qualified bidders want to win your job—it’s how they go about that process that is cause for alert. Many contractors shy away from asking questions because, many times, it adds scope and increased cost, which may become a disadvantage competitively. Asking questions may also reveal imperfect work or impractical design elements in the architect’s drawings, making the contractor look like the bad guy.
