Why is there a big difference in decoration quotation?
the cost of decoration has always been one of the most concerned issues for consumers. At present, there are many home decoration companies in the market, and there are often great differences in quotation. Many consumers have encountered such confusion: in the same home decoration market, there is also a new house with an area of 120 square meters. The quotation of one company is 48000 yuan, while the quotation of another company next to it is only 32000 yuan. The price difference of almost the same decoration content is tens of thousands of yuan. Why is there such a big difference in decoration quotation
industry experts pointed out that in terms of price management of home decoration, due to regional differences, there is no unified quotation standard in the country at present, and some home decoration markets only list guide prices for consumers' reference. However, as the number of decoration projects and quantities is a direct factor affecting the whole decoration cost, and the scale, qualification, grade and management system of decoration companies are different, their charging standards are also different. Generally speaking, the expenses in decoration should include: design fee, main material fee, auxiliary material fee, labor fee, management fee and tax. However, it is necessary to remind consumers not to choose home decoration enterprises simply by price. Because so far, there is still a phenomenon that decoration companies are using consumers' inexperience to play "flower work" in quotation
then, what aspects should we start with when reviewing the quotation of the decoration company? Pay attention to the "addition" in the decoration quotation. Although some home decoration companies offer very low prices at the initial stage, there are often many additional items after signing home decoration contracts with consumers, and some even designers deliberately lose or omit items. For example, the content was originally negotiated with the designer, but it was not specified in the contract, and the consumer did not notice it. In this way, although the price was not high when the contract was signed, when the project was completed, a lot of content was added, and the cost increased accordingly. The most common "addition content" includes: before signing the contract, the decoration company does not quote the price of clean water and circuit transformation, which is not clear about hidden pipes, but the highest price is calculated in the final settlement; Or in the construction of water and circuit reconstruction, the length of water and circuit pipelines is intentionally extended, so consumers suffer additional losses
pay attention to verifying the "subtraction" in the decoration project. Consumers generally pay more attention to and supervise the "visible and touchable" conventional engineering projects such as carpentry, bricklaying and oilmen, but they know little about concealed works and some details. For example, it is difficult to see how well the water renovation, waterproof and leak proof projects, strong and weak current renovation, air conditioning pipelines and other projects are done in the short term, and it is impossible to study them in depth. Many construction personnel often make articles here. Another example is that some companies stipulate that the interior wall should be painted three times, but the construction team only painted once. On the surface, there is no difference, but in fact, the process standard is reduced. For the time being, the problem will be exposed over time
pay attention to the "itemized calculation" in the decoration quotation. These companies are quite formal on the surface, breaking a single project into multiple sub items at will, and quoting prices respectively according to each sub item. Consumers usually feel that choosing such companies is to understand consumption, but they don't know the "tricky": for example, making door covers, taking hardware such as door leaves, door covers, hinges and so on as separate items, they often raise some itemized prices by a small part, which is not easy for consumers to notice, and the overall price has increased a lot unconsciously. What's more, the labor cost of installation and painting is also taken as a charging content to let consumers pay again. Due to the limitation of professional knowledge, consumers often can't identify the secret, and can't tell the reason why this quotation is unreasonable, so they have to pay. In fact, this itemized pricing is easy to repeat billing, making most consumers "slaughtered" and do not know why. Especially if the decoration company will give you a 20% discount or even lower for a decoration project, you must be careful. In the process of construction, the decoration company will slowly add projects and earn back its losses. Finally, the accounting, not only did not save money, is likely to spend more decoration costs
