FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

To address as many questions as possible on our site, here are some of our most Frequently Asked Questions..

We believe that a “shop rate” is a very poor indicator of what your unit price will be.  At best, a shop rate is an attempt to bundle all associated costs into a average hourly rate.   Even if you compare unit prices from two shops with the same shop rate, you will most likely get disparate prices from them due to differences in efficiency, machine technology, etc.

For that reason we have taken the approach of systematically breaking down our true cost for each resource and applying those costs, as applicable, to each project that we quote.  We quote our projects with a high degree of confidence that we are giving our customers an accurate “best” price.
