Tile Pricing Shock
I was just going through one of the change orders our "investor" sent over as we are about to write the check. We are enclosing the shower in the master bathroom and he said we need 105 sf more of tile to do so. I was then looking at his price per sf- and we have not selected the tile yet, so it is still the "classic series" basic, basic tile from our spec list- and the charge is $8/sf for the additional tile in the master bathroom. We are also changing it from a tub to a glass door in the shower and that is also an additional 70 sf at $8/sf for a very, very basic tile. Is this correct? It seems extremely high. Our upgrades are supposed to be price + 15%. I don't trust the investor, who seems to keep himself in the mix rather than letting the builder do the job, so any input on pricing is appreciated.
