When you start to plan a project, one of the first things on your to-do list is to start to gather information on your project. This information gathering process not only is visualizing the end result, but what steps are involved into achieving these results. We at Kruse Lumber understand this process better than anyone. Our years of experience with a variety of projects ensures you that we understand what you are going through. With that understanding, we know that our commitment to you is providing you with all of the necessary information to make sound decisions. One of the critical steps is putting together an honest and thorough estimate. With so many variables in construction, options available in doors, windows, trim, stair parts, siding and hardware, it is our firm belief that you, our customer, deserves an accurate estimate for making those extensive decisions. We don't believe in shorting lists, minimizing quantities, putting in unrealistic allowances, only to try to buy the job. Will our lists appear high compared to someone else's? Are the lists really apples to apples? Our experience has shown, as John Ruskin once said, "It's unwise to pay too much but it's worse 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 thing you bought was incapable of doing the thing it was bought to do." We at Kruse Lumber, would rather be honest and up front about your estimated costs.
