Estimating Work

Do you all have any good recommendations on places to learn how much certain kinds of remodeling will cost? Without getting actual quotes?

When my hubby and I look at houses I often know what I would want done to the property if we were to buy it, but I have no idea how intensive and/or expensive the work would be. For instance, several houses have decks that are looking pretty rough. We know it would need to be fixed and can roughly gauge redo from resanded and weather proofed. But how much either of those would cost? No idea.

Anything beyond basic fixes, we would probably hire someone, but we don't know anyone. I don't know if a contractor would be willing to do that for a potential client that they've never worked with.

True. I guess we will have to wait until we have a short list of houses though. Ideally we would already have this information and could use that determination to know which houses to short list. *shrugs*

Thank you for the site recommendation! I always get nervous hiring people. I'm always afraid they are going to be untrustworthy or unreliable. : /
