I thought that I need to vent. Did few complex code violation bids and they bounce one bid to another vendor. Received sec bid request for same property one months later..... So, now, can someone help me out, wasn't it easier if some one would try to work with us first time? Or they got concerned about high numbers and just dump it on the other vendor who btw has no clue how to work with violations.... and I am carious to see what would be an outcome if the work would be approved as that bid was missing more than half of the violations...... Just carious.... There are market standards on the pricing and we follow them, ok, I do however understand that it's hard to read city violations and it's even harder to compare bid to the list(s) to make sure that everything is being done right and then make sure that pricing is appropriate. I completely understand that dumping bid around with the hope that someone will do it for 10 K instead of 30K is wonderful, but does it work when you basically redo exterior including roofs on couple of the buildings? What I wish was happening that they would have some sort of structure, people who has professional approach and knowledge and this would save frustration, time, money and result in more work. Sigh......
