No. When the job was first viewed we looked at 2 large cream classroom that needed minor repair and 2 coats of paint. I sent my quote to the contractor who passed his quote then on to the school. We then viewed the classrooms again nearer the time and they showed me 2 smaller green classrooms and another large blue classroom. The blue room had water damage on one wall which needed stripping and sealing. I applied 3 coats of emulsion to this room to cover the blue and 4 coats to the green rooms.
Verbally after the walk around the contractor was saying he wished he had added 20% on rather than 10% so anything I could do to save on costs would be appreciated. I just said I would see what I could do. Nothing else was exchanged.
Added to this and this was verbal too - I said I would need a tower for the work. He said not to worry as he was thinking of buying one. One the first day of he job I asked after this and he said he couldn't find one so I sourced this through the hire company I have an account with. I invoiced for this at the end too and he said it was included in the quote. The quote doesn't specify either way on this just gives a price for 2 classrooms with 2 coats of paint.
Am out for the morning now but will respond as soon as I can to your next email.
thank you. Does it cost me anything to take action? win or lose? By all accounts my price was very competitive. What if the quotes are both above what I have asked? Who would get the other quotes. If me, he would claim I know them and vice versa.... thanks again
