Sawgrass Plantation Enterprises is a Florida state certified general contractor that has served Volusia County, Florida for over thirty years. We here at Sawgrass think it is important that you understand how to read an estimate from a contractor. Most contractors will list what their fees are in writing when presenting you with an estimate. The estimate should spell out the scope of work in detail; you may be presented with other documents such as drawings and photographs. It is important to read all the documentation carefully. Some contractors will have hidden fees and even hidden contracts built into their estimates. For your own protection, before you begin a construction project take a little time to learn about Florida construction laws. Remember: the less expensive estimate may end up costing you a lot more.
