How to avoid the seven traps of home decoration qu

  • Detail

Home decoration is something that every family has to experience. If you can find a good decoration company or construction team, it will naturally save you a lot of worry. However, if you don't meet the standard decoration company and construction personnel, only you can experience the twists and turns and worry in each one. Among them, the decoration quotation trap is relatively common. Increasing money in the decoration process will inevitably make people uncomfortable. Then, how to avoid these price decoration traps

trap 1: the trick of changing measurement units secretly

is generally the most difficult for owners to see through, because owners rarely pay attention to the units on the quotation, and not knowing different units means that the quotation figures deviate greatly. For example, if you order a shoe cabinet, the quotation says that the main material is 8mm glass shelf + 1cm tempered glass + mirror + accessories, unit: item, quantity: 1&hellip& hellip; It seems reasonable. In fact, there is no explanation about the size of the shoe cabinet, leaving an opportunity to exploit the loopholes

method: the owner should require to calculate according to the actual area, such as wardrobe, shoe cabinet, etc., and try not to take items as the unit, so as to avoid errors in the decoration process

trap 2: some main materials for hard decoration are omitted.

some main materials are deliberately omitted from the decoration quotation. The owner is attracted by this kind of quotation with reasonable overall price and signs up readily, but in the next decoration process, the owner will continue to add money for these malicious forgetfulness of the decoration company

method: to resolve this risk, the owner must require the decoration company to write clearly all main materials in the decoration contract or agreement, and indicate whether the buyer is the decoration company or the owner himself

trap 3: fuzzy quality, level, specification

this is a common trick used by non-standard decoration companies. Although it clearly states that some materials are needed and the quantity of materials is indicated, it does not indicate what quality, brand and specification materials are selected

method: the owner shall require each item of the quotation to specify various elements of the material as much as possible. During decoration, pay attention to check whether relevant materials are purchased according to the specified requirements

trap 4: lower the price of a single item

owners usually ask their friends who have been decorated in advance, or go to the market to understand the price of a certain material, but the information they know is often one-sided. For example, the owner knows the current unit price of floors and tiles, but does not necessarily know the labor cost of floor installation and tiling, so he cut down the price of floors and tiles, but suffered a loss in labor cost

method: when looking at the decoration quotation, the owner should not only focus on the single price of a project, but also integrate the costs of labor, loss and other aspects as well as the costs of other projects

trap 5: the construction process is ambiguous

it is a common mistake for most owners to look at the figures without looking at the text instructions when looking at the quotation. They always feel that a digital error will cause losses, and the text instructions must be useless, which is not the case. Whether it is wall coating construction, floor construction or sewer construction, they all have their own construction process requirements. If a process is omitted in the middle, it may cause you a lot of trouble in future life. Problems such as paint falling off the wall and water seepage in the toilet are mostly caused by the poor decoration construction process

method: the owner had better learn more about decoration, try to understand the construction process standards of various projects about indoor decoration, and go to the decoration site regularly to understand the process, which has a certain preventive effect
