Regardless of the cost of a project, a written construction proposal protects all parties involved. A well-written proposal helps the contractor to win work if it helps both parties have a meeting of the minds in a trust relationship.

A written construction proposal that clearly details and “paints a picture” of what you are promising to do. Details in this proposal include specific materials, payment schedule, and costs. A professional and well-written proposal not only portrays you in a professional light but protects you and your client from misunderstandings and conflict.

A construction proposal should always be specific with regard to the scope of work. This protects you from having to do work you had no original intention of doing. You know what I mean that dreaded “I assumed you were also going to do X, Y and Z?” or even worse “ I thought that was included.”
