I’m a small residential builder/remodelor in a rural town in GA. I am helping oversee the renovation of my church. We are looking at close to $ 3 million for the renovation and repairs to existing structures.
The commercial outfit that we are considering have priced the job considerably higher than our budget. I know that this is always the case with pretty much any job. It always cost more than you think.
I would like to have someway to tell how reasonable their prices are. I intend to get a few bids myself for some portions of the work to compare to their prices.
What should I expect as a normal and acceptable markup for a commercial contractor? The contractor is not local, so per diems are part of the price as well.
Thanks for any help or advice.
