Something to consider regarding pricing:

It is easy, especially when confronted with a choice between contractors offering disparate pricing, to be tempted to jump at the lower price. But renovation projects are often a REAL INVESTMENT, and one should ask about the return on that investment, considering the annualized cost of the project.

Cost vs. Value

This becomes more crystallized with an example:
Let us say that Contractor A offers a price for a bathroom renovation of 9,000. Contractor B’s quotation is $15,000. Bearing in mind that local labor costs (assuming we are discussing legitimate licensed businesses) are pretty similar in the region, obviously contractor A will be forced to do the job in fewer hours to still make a profit, so he is forced to be expedient or even sloppy and cut corners wherever possible. Likewise, he will have to shave material costs, and use the cheapest construction materials.

Contractor A’s cheaper initial price resulted in a 50% larger overall project cost!

THIS is more the rule than the exception!

Contractor A
Initial project cost: $9,000
Cost of re-work and touch-ups needed after 5 years: $1,800
Cost of damage from leaks $900
Expected lifespan 10 years
Annualized project cost (per year): $1,170
 
Contractor B
Initial project cost: $15,000
Cost of re-work and touch-ups needed after 5 years: $0
Expected lifespan 20 years
Annualized project cost (per year): $750
 

FOOD FOR THOUGHT

"It’s unwise to pay too much, but it’s unwise to pay too little. When you pay too much you lose a little money, that is all. When you pay too little, you sometimes lose everything, because the product you purchased was incapable of satisfying the requirement for which you bought it.

The common law of business balance prohibits paying a little and getting a lot. It can’t be done. If you deal with the lowest bidder, it’s well to add something for the risk you run. And if you do that, you will have enough to pay for something better… "
