Free estimate: how to do it right

We receive many requests to evaluate the work on this or that object. After analyzing the orders, we decided to tell you how to order a free estimate correctly.

It should be remembered that we appreciate not only our time, but also the time of each client. If the customer when addressing in detail describes the features of the future repair, then the assessment can be made faster.

Before a free estimate answer the questions

First, let's show one of the good examples. We were contacted by Ina C .:

The woman asked herself questions and immediately responded to them. At the same time, she wants to paint only one bathroom. In this case, we can only name the price. It's nice to deal with such customers!

Therefore, our advice to those who want to make repairs. Before ordering a free evaluation, answer a few questions. Examples of questions you already have.

Many contractors have a contact form. We also use the contact form. In one of the latest reports there was a very interesting solution:


I'm just looking for a quote on painting the inside of our apartment. We are moving into a new place and looking to get rid of the green walls. The panelling at the bottom would stay the same. You can see photos and details of the apartment at this link


Free estimate

The client decided not to waste time talking, and all photographed and posted on the Internet. It is very convenient to look at the object in this way.
