Frequently Asked Questions

Frequently Asked Questions
What are change orders and do you have them?

We’ve all heard the horror stories of a contractor charging for work and items that were never disclosed in the original contract. We’ve heard the stories of a contractor removing a wall to discover a myriad of plumbing surprises, not accounted for in the initial proposal. This is not how we do business at Essential. Earning your trust is important to us, so we never charge for change-orders, unless you add work not detailed in the initial proposal.
