Our verbal estimates are free within 20 miles of 77346 zip code. Outside of this area, we charge $50 to $250 travel fee depending on the area we are traveling to. We visit your home or business, make a list of items on your project list, material choices if you have them already, your budget and time frame needed. We will take snapshots of all areas we are estimating. We may also need to take a video of the project area should it be more detailed. If the project is simple with material choices and pricing are already known, we can give you a verbal estimate within minutes, hours or maybe a day or two. If it's a more detailed project, it may take a little more time but you will receive your 'free verbal' estimate typically within two hours to three days after the first visit.
CANCELLATIONS once scheduled:
NHC reserves the right to charge a cancellation fee from $25 to $2000 (depending on job/scope of work) if client does not offer at least a 48 hour cancellation notice for 'handy man' size jobs and a minimum 3 days notice for larger remodels and renovations. Fee range depends on size of job and loss to NHC for other lost jobs due to scheduling of said cancelled job. Cancellation will be taken from down payment or if no down payment was rendered, will be charged to client via email, text, verbally or regular mail, and due immediately.
***ALL CANCELLATIONS MUST BE VIA EMAIL OR TEXT "AS WELL AS" VERBAL TO NHC***
Should you decide you like our FREE VERBAL estimate and decide to go with NHC for your project, we then will create a contract for you on our computer generated form. This will be a more cost clear proposal and will be detailed and explained in full at our second meeting with you at the project site for referencing line items and explaining why and how we do the work. NailHead Contractors does not deliver form proposals via email or text but only in a second in person meeting.
NHC also offers professional generated estimates on paper for a fee (depending on your location and scope of work to be done) ranging from $125 to $1200 (for many commercial projects) and that fee must be paid up front, and should you decide then to use NHC, (only for residential estimates), we deduct that amount out of the final payment for completed project.
FOR RESIDENTIAL MAJOR RENOVATIONS: NHC CHARGES $250 MINIMUM FOR FIRST QUOTE DEPENDING ON SIZE OF PROJECT AND PHASES TO BE DONE. Any revisions to quote once estimating has begun, will be an additional fee per revision. Additional necessary trips to project site due to revisions are also additional fees. Extensive bidding and modifications for same project will incur additional estimate costs.to cover costs to NHC for time, trips and administrative submissions required to client.
NHC prefers to do all potential client visits for estimates during the week (preferably Monday-Tuesday) however we understand schedules and work hours sometimes do not permit this, so we will work with you for a weekend appointment if necessary.
