We don’t offer a 100% completion guarantee (also known as a fixed-price contract) because in our experience, no matter how thoroughly you plan, costs and schedules almost never stay fixed for the duration of a project; there are always at least one or two variables that create delays or cost increases — and you simply can’t predict them.
It could be that a subcontractor’s tradesperson is sidelined for days with the stomach flu, or breaks their leg playing beer league hockey. Or the flatbed truck carrying a necessary piece of equipment breaks down on the highway. Or perhaps a difficult installation requires some additional labour or materials that you just couldn’t foresee until you actually started the job. It’s often a bunch of small delays or cost increases that add up to more than a 100% guarantee can cover.
However, when an estimate has been thoroughly and expertly prepared based on the right information, we can keep these unexpected costs to a minimum. That’s why we can stand confidently behind our 5% Guarantee.
