Another famous Wulin expert also has one fear, that is, he is afraid of being plotted by others. It is the so-called "it is easy to hide the open gun, but difficult to defend the hidden arrow". Home decoration companies often use the owners' ignorance or carelessness to give you a "gentle knife" when making budgets. The following are some "skills" commonly used by decoration companies when making budgets: breaking down items (project name) breaks a project into several items, and the unit price comes down, but the total price goes up.

another famous Wulin expert also has one fear, that is, he is afraid of being plotted by others. It is the so-called "it is easy to hide the open gun, but difficult to defend the hidden arrow". Home decoration companies often use the owners' ignorance or carelessness to give you a "gentle knife" when making budgets

the following are some "skills" commonly used by decoration companies when making budgets:

split items (project name)

split a project into several projects, and the unit price is down, but the total price is up

example: dismantle the wall tiles into two items: wall base treatment and wall tiles; The triangle valve and metal hose in the toilet installation project are separately listed as two projects, and the hydropower project is detailed and dissected to calculate by meter and by person. It seems cheap, and the final settlement cost is so high that you can't believe it

unit transformation

change the items that should be quoted by square meters to quoted by meters

example: generally, decoration companies quote price per door pocket, but some decoration companies quote price per meter, so a door pocket becomes 5 meters, and the unit price goes down, but the total price goes up

play tricks on the quantities

many companies are making an issue of the quantities in order to obtain higher profits

example: latex paint does not deduct the area of door and window openings. The wall and floor tiles of kitchen and bathroom are calculated according to the full paving, but when they are pasted, they are only pasted where the eyes can see, and the back of the cabinet is not pasted; Some of them deliberately miscalculated and overstated the quantities, and when they were found, they dealt with them with "budgetary errors"

the unit price of main materials is playing tricks. Instead of famous brand products with clear prices, they are replaced by unknown products, so that consumers do not know the price. The prices of main materials and auxiliary materials are not reported separately, giving the decoration company the opportunity to fish in troubled waters

for example: the floor is 200 yuan/square meter, including auxiliary materials, so the decoration company may only use the products of 150 yuan/square meter. It's also called that it hasn't calculated your auxiliary material price yet. However, if you don't want the decoration company to buy main materials, the decoration company will estimate the main materials at a very low price, which will eventually lead to a significant overspending of the customer's budget. You should also be careful

double counting

hinges have been included in door installation, floor nails have been included in floor installation, and then a project "hardware" has been added at the end, which is 3000 yuan. When the budgeter asked what materials it was, he didn't know why. Designers add items only to get more commission

some designers deliberately increase decoration projects in order to get more commission from the company after receiving the order, regardless of the actual situation of consumers' homes, such as adding a partition where there is no need to make a partition, and requiring a ceiling where there is no need for a ceiling, etc. after a "design", the decoration quotation is significantly higher than the original budget. Of course, at this time, the Commission of designers will also increase significantly

countermeasures: how much longer than him

Sun Tzu's art of war says: know yourself and know your enemy, and you will be invincible in a hundred battles. Knowing what "fraud" decoration companies usually make, we can formulate countermeasures accordingly

1. Carefully check the budget and drawings. See whether the materials indicated in the drawing are the same as those in the budget, whether the quantity is the same, whether you have listed all the things you need to do in the budget, whether there is an understatement of a door or the omission of kitchen and bathroom waterproofing and the skirting line in the bedroom, etc. these items must be done in the construction, and if they are omitted, some procedures and a sum of expenses will inevitably be added later

2. It is required to indicate the material and brand in the remarks column. For example, "Nippon Paint on the wall is 45 yuan/square meter", which is easy to cause disputes, because "Nippon" is only a paint brand, it has many series of products, and the price of each paint is different

3. If you think that the decoration company has fraud and there are errors in the calculation of quantities and decoration costs, you can ask the decoration company to re quote, or you can directly apply to the relevant government departments for fair calculation and measurement

4. Please review by experts

master the basic principles of budget

● when the selection object is basically determined in mind, negotiate the price with the other party to strive for the maximum discount and profit. However, the bargaining should be based on the unit price of various decoration projects obtained in the early consultation stage. It is enough to leave a certain profit space for the other party, so as not to ultimately affect the construction quality

● spend money on the cutting edge, and determine which areas are bright spots that need more money, and which areas can be discarded or weakened. Most of the materials and practices are cheap and simple, and a few of the finishing touches are high-priced items, which will appear to have a higher style. For example, if the price of floor tiles with good confidentiality and wear resistance is higher, the price of wall tiles can be relatively low. Emulsion paint only needs to be bought. For example, if the price of floor tiles with good confidentiality and wear resistance is higher, the price of wall tiles can be relatively low. Emulsion paint only needs to buy ordinary goods of famous brands

● during the construction process, be aware of the design of the home, and do not change or add items at will. If changes are needed, they should be adjusted flexibly according to the actual situation
