What is included in a construction quote?
In construction, a quote is a document that has a detailed breakdown of the expected costs that are associated with a proposed project. This includes facets like labor cost, material costs, and quantities. The reason that quotes can expire is that the costs of materials and labor demands can fluctuate over time.

How do you write a concrete quote?
Estimates are usually free for small, simple jobs like painting a bathroom. A contractor will charge for an estimate for complicated, big projects that involve detailed designs and multiple plan revisions, such as building an addition to your home.
Estimates, generally, must be professionally reasonable. A 10-20% overage might be considered reasonable, especially if the contractor discovered issues along the way that he couldn't have been aware of initially (for example, mold or flooding).
