The basis of price is important and should be evaluated very carefully! Do not hire a contractor with the lowest estimate. Examine and breakdown each estimate. Are materials the same quality? Is the standard of the workmanship the same? Did they miss something on the estimate? Weigh all the factors--price, references, and professionalism in making a decision that will affect the biggest asset you have.
