Howdy from Memphis.

Not slow over here. Our company just recently started doing remodel to rents. Since they previously only employed winterizers and lock changers, I'm slammed. Not cool with the way they are doing business though. I recently bid a job at 8000 for interior paint and carpet change (2000sqft) which is already less than what I know the work is worth (lots of railing ,crown, chair, vaulted ceiling, smoke damage through out). the guy comes back with if you can go 6 we got it. I say tell em 7 and I'll start tomorrow. A week later he calls back we got it im sending it over to you now. I assume 7.(We had a long conversation about why I couldn't take 6) We get the W.O. and we have initial sales clean (bid at $55!!! their pricing guide says $75) 4cyd debris (more like 7) and the instructions say to use flat satin and semi paint, paint all ceilings and stainblock 200 ft of water damage (guess the person who initially bid this job before me cant tell the difference between smoke and water ) and must use 25oz FHA carpet with new 6lb pad. But wait here's more-So not only did they add some extra task I didn't agree to... After starting on the work, for two days I ask for a net to contractor breakdown. When I finally get it $5600!! The carpet was 3300 and they alotted 3000!! WTF. Welcome to property pres. I guess. Anyway is there anything I can do about this. Or is it just the nature of the work. Also the garage is all kinds of busted up and the texture is falling off the ceiling. My WO says "paint interior" the garage isn't interior right

You can say no you are not doing it. Unless I purposefully bid it high to begin with knowing that they were going to cut it, I wouldn't take the cut from $8k to $5600.

They probably took your original $8k bid, tacked $2k on for them, and are now trying to come talk you back down to raise their margin.

Slightly confused, why did you start on the work before you had any sort of price?

RULE #1 in this industry(or any) - Don't do any work without a price in writing.

To clarify....

I assumed.... We had a conversation about what I needed and what I was going to do. I assumed this counted as an agreement.

I guess I just feel like in any other situation that wouldn't be acceptable. Think if you took your car to the shop to get some new tires and when you went to pick it up the mechanic was like " I decided you needed
a new starter and a water pump so I just put them on you owe me an extra $300"
