Hourly rate vs Day rate vs Price for the job

Hourly rates

This is useful for smaller jobs or difficult to estimate due to time e.g. fault finding.
I would always confirm this before work commences in a written format, so both parties know where they stand. Please be aware materials will be added as extra as well.

Day rate

Day rate is very similar to hourly rate. It enables the tradesmen not to rush and do a very professional job, which they should be doing anyway.
I do worry on price when a tight quote is accepted some tradesmen might cut corners.
This is good for both large and smaller jobs.
Trust is important that work is done but you can’t hide when you inspect at the end of the day. Again materials will be added as an extra.
I would always confirm this before work commences in a written format, so both parties know where they stand.

Price for the job

This is good for large and smaller jobs. It allows you to budget for the work being done. This will include all materials and labour specified to complete the job.
Any extras outside of the quotation should always be confirmed with the client before work commences. You can’t expect an addition to the bill when work that hasn’t been confirmed with the client.
Always get a few quotations to compare and remember the lowest its always the best. Ask yourself why they are so cheap. I would always look towards the low to mid range.
Its always to get quotes in advance to prevent an rush. This allows you to book the work in for each trade in a organised manner, and get a few quotes for comparison.
I would always confirm this before work commences in a written format, so both parties know where they stand.
