Service Provider ResponseSorry for this misunderstanding. I did not intend to come across as insulting to his house nor did I want to suggest condemning his house. I really actually enjoy old houses and the character and the history they keep and display in Nashville. He asked for a firm estimate on what it would take to complete the replacement siding work on his 1930'[Member Information Removed] house. This was high work involving ladders and possibly scaffolding. There were at least two layers of shingles to be removed before siding could be installed but we did not know just how many layers of shingles there were or what the condition of the wall would be in once they were removed. Again, this house is around 80 years old. Knowing that it is an older home I explained to him the difficulties in giving a firm price as we really do not know what we will find once we remove the shingled siding. What is okay for shingles used as siding may not be fine for hardi-siding. Asphalt shingles can bend and flex and hide certain blemishes/problems that hardi-siding may not be able to do so easily. The house boards may be loose or may need to be replaced. There may have been water damage. The trim around the windows may have needed work before the siding was installed. Bottom line is that it is really difficult to give a firm price on this type of work unless you inflate the estimate for the unknown. Both in person and in emails I expressed to him my hope that he would be able to find a less expensive company to perform the work. I am aware that we are not always the best price. A problem with all the building going on in Nashville is that specific siding subcontractors that I have used in the past and are less expensive are so busy with new construction that it is hard to get them out to work on a smaller siding job. I did not see the quote from the other contractor so I cannot do a side-by-side comparison but I am glad he was able to get the work done without problems.
Service Provider ResponseI am really sorry for the confusion of this phone call. I did not mean to come across as dismissive. Your husband called during the lunch hour as I was writing out a check for one of my employees. He described wanting built-in shelving unit across a wall 20-25' long x normal ceiling height which I guessed to be around 8' tall. A built in unit typically will stretch from floor to ceiling but he said that it did not need to go all the way to the ceiling so I figured on a unit 7' high. I expressed the fact that this is a long length of wall for a built-in unit and quickly calculated a rough cost based on other projects to be close to $12,000 but said it could possibly drop as low as the $10,000. He said this was more than what he thought you guys would want to spend. I mentioned to him that buying furniture for that wall that is built in a factory could be cheaper and the possibility of shrinking the size of the unit and just building something in the center of the wall. Neither of these two options seemed to be what you guys wanted. He mentioned that the shelving could be really simple. So I asked him if he was searching for something closer to $5,000 and he said that this figure would be much closer to what he thought you guys wanted to spend. ( I never heard an actual budget but tossed this number out for conversation purposes.) I expressed to him the difficulty in having custom work done in his home (even simple shelving) and painted in this price range and again mentioned that something smaller could work. I then gave him a couple of possibly less expensive options and mentioned IKEA or Discount Cabinets but told him I was not confident that you guys would get exactly what you want with these other two options. He said that he would discuss these options with you and get back to me. The total conversation lasted over 8 minutes. I tried to listen thoroughly to what he described and to give thoughtful advice as to how to proceed. Again, sorry for the misunderstanding. glen Update: I called this morning and spoke again with your husband and apologized to him for the misunderstanding. He was very nice and explained to me his perspective on the situation. I certainly do not want to make enemies and it really troubles me that I came across the wrong way to you guys. If you would like for me to come out to look at the space then please let me know. Thank you for your understanding, glen
