How Long Is An Installation Quote Good For?

When planning a home renovation project, getting an accurate and reliable installation quote is essential. A quote estimates how much you’ll be spending on your project and helps you plan your budget accordingly. It’s important to know that installation quotes come with an expiration date.

At Mid-Coast Energy Systems, we know our clients have busy schedules, and sometimes it takes a while to decide to proceed with a project. That’s why our installation quotes are good for 15 days.

 After that period, we may need to re-evaluate the cost of services based on any changes that may have occurred since the quote was issued. These changes could be due to various factors, such as material price fluctuations or unexpected project scope changes.

But why do installation quotes come with an expiration date? There are several reasons for this:

  • Material prices can fluctuate.

One of the main reasons why installation quotes have an expiration date is that material prices can fluctuate. The cost of raw materials like wood, steel, and concrete can vary depending on market conditions, supply and demand, and weather conditions. Therefore, the price of a project can change if the cost of materials increases.

  • Labor costs can change.

Another factor that can cause changes in the cost of a project is labor costs. Wages and salaries for tradespeople can change, especially if there are changes to labor laws. Additionally, if a project is delayed, labor costs can also increase.

  • Project scope can change.

The scope of a project can change for various reasons, such as a change in the design or the addition of new features. When the project scope changes, the installation quote may no longer be accurate, and the project cost may need to be adjusted.

What should you do if your installation quote has expired and you still want to proceed with your project?
