Our Good Better Best Remodeling Estimate

Good Better Best Estimate


What is a Good Better Best Remodeling Estimate?

Good better best estimating gives you more control over your selections budget. It’s simple to create, we offer 3 budget categories for each selection: A budget friendly “Good” option, a middle of the road “Better Option and a “Best” option. As you move through the estimate you can choose the selections that best meet your needs and your budget. For example, you might choose the “Good” backsplash tile (subway tile for example) but opt for the “Best” kitchen sink (an Idea Station 5 perhaps?)

Once all your selections are made we will have the ideal estimate for your project that balances your budget needs and project priorities.

Advantages of Good Better Best

Everyone has different priorities for their remodeling project. Some people want really nice tile and appliances. Other focus on cabinetry and lighting. Good better best allows you to see multiple options for each estimate and make personalized choices based on your priorities.

It also allows to you to see how each selection will affect your budget.

After our initial visit to your home, we will create your good better best estimate. Then we will invite you to the showroom to review the estimate with you in detail and help you make your good better best selections. One those selections are made we will create your final estimate.


Good better best selections don’t apply to everything, however. For example, dump fees and installation costs often are the same regardless of the materials you select. When appropriate though we will include fees and labor costs as part of the good better best budget as well.
