At Licensed Reclads, we pride ourselves in providing our clients with professional, detailed and competitive quotes.
Once your architectural drawings are complete you are now in the position to get your quote (not estimate). At this point everything your architect has specified on the plans is broken down and priced for the tender process.
Most items are fixed costs, however, there are some unknown costs and these will be listed as provisional sums. Your quote will be a mix of fixed costs and provisional sums which together will make up your total cost.
Unknown costs include items such as timber remediation and the replacement of interior wall linings/stopping. This is because the extent of timber decay is not truly known until the cladding is removed. At Licensed reclads, whilst we cannot give you a fixed price for timber remediation, we have removed the cladding from so many plaster homes that we have a very good idea of the amount of timber remediation that will be involved just by looking at the design features of your property. We use this experience to provide provisional sums that are as accurate as possible.
At Licensed reclads we believe in providing accurate provisional sums to make up our quotes. These are listed as an open book system with scheduled rates applied. We do not believe in providing unrealistically low provisional sums as this could affect your project funding. Please remember when comparing provisional sums that they should always be accompanied with agreed rates. Please also remember that provisional sums are exactly that, they work both ways. If less timber remediation is required than expected then you pay less, this is why agreed rates are so important.
If you have already had architectural plans drawn for you project, please get in contact and we can provide you with a detailed quote.
