The California State Licensing Board also states,
“Do not automatically accept the lowest bid. In fact, you should beware of any bid that is substantially lower than the others. It probably indicates that the contractor made a mistake or is not including all the work quoted by his or her competitors. You may be headed for a dispute with your contractor if you accept an abnormally low bid. It is also possible that this contractor will cut corners or do substandard work in order to make a profit on the job.”
Proper licensing, insurances, training, quality materials, etc. are essential to doing the job right. Unfortunately, these are the common areas that contractors typically take shortcuts on to reduce costs. This is why organizations such as the FTC and the CSLB warn homeowners against the lowest bids. Here’s where the adage, “you get what you pay for” holds absolutely true.
