Interpreting sq ft discrepency on two different quotes
Hi! I received one quote for the perimeter which listed 61 sq feet and another which listed it at 66 sq ft. Should I just look at the bottom line to compare? I also have cost per sq foot however, one company took the approach of adding a bunch of line items and giving a discount at the end and the other just left out certain extras. They both come out to about the same
I'm worried that the guy with the smaller sq ft listed might not have allowed for enough and will either try to charge me more after the job is done, saying it took more sq ft or he will end up skimping on the counter. They are standard 24" with a 1" overhang, right? Do you think he missed a small piece on the wall that had the stove and refrigerator which is probably 4 sq ft? Or is it the guy with the larger # just giving himself a larger margin of error? The sq ft cost is high so I'm wondering how to handle these #s?
