How To Hire The Cheapest Remodeling Contractor

The best way to find a cheap contractor is to call as many of them as you can and ask them to come over to your house to give you an estimate. If you're only interested in hiring the cheapest contractor, I would like to give you a few pointers on how you can find them.

It's going to take you a while to find the cheapest one, because you really won't know which one is the cheapest one, until you have went through all of them. You might need to go through 50, 60 or even a hundred contractors, before you find the ultimate cheapest one for your remodeling project.

I shouldn't give this information away, because you could actually use it against me as a licensed general contractor. It doesn't really matter to me, because I have my own methods of weeding out certain homeowners and I can usually do it over the phone or through my e-mail. It doesn't work all the time and every once in a while I go to someone's home and get caught up in them telling me how wonderful I am, only to be disappointed, as I tell myself that I won't ever do that again.

That's it, that's the secret of finding the cheapest contractor. Start calling them and don't stop until you find the cheapest one. They might not speak your language and your family might not want to have anything to do with them, but they will be the cheapest.

The cheapest contractor also might not have the ability to complete your project or use the correct materials. This shouldn't matter to you, because you're only interested in finding the cheapest one and nothing else.

Seriously, if you're trying to find the cheapest contractor, but you would like a good job, have as many contractors as you can, look at your remodeling project. I don't suggest that you go with the cheapest contractor or someone that doesn't speak your language or even someone that doesn't have enough experience.

If you only call two contractors, you're only going to have two prices. If you call 15 contractors, there's a good chance that your efforts will pay off, but make sure that they have the experience.

The most important thing here to remember is that some contractors charge $50 an hour, some contractors charge $25 an hour and I have seen contractors work for less than $10 an hour. The materials are probably going to cost the same, but if you're looking for the cheapest contractor, ask them what their hourly rates are, before they even come over to your home.
