Getting Bids for Your Finished Basement, Part I

Using a bid sheet template is a great way to save money and time on construction projects.  In this video, we will discuss how you go about getting bids from subcontractors with our standardized bid sheet template. We review the process an owner builder should go through to send out bid packages to a minimum of three subcontractors per building activity. We discuss the role of the bid sheet template and how it saves you time and money on your new finished basement project.

Whether you are building a new home from scratch or finishing your basement, the bidding process is the most critical step.  Similar to your search for the best deal on a new car, bidding out your project properly will help you feel confident you got the best deal possible.  And since we are talking about thousands of dollars here, you might as well take the time to do it right.
