I just had several contractors bid a remodel at my home. Why is Bott's construction so high? Is there work really worth thousands of dollars more than anyone else? The youngest son, Spencer I think, told me that they were higher because of the quality of the work they do. Anybody out there have any advice? I want it done right, but are there other contractors that can do good work for a fair price? Bott's wasn't even in the ballpark of any other contractors. 5k higher to be exact. Are they full of bs or is their work really that good? Thanks....

Yea you better be carefull there. They all should be close to each other is my opinion.

My opinion is to go to the next best contractor and quote them the cheapest price you got... If Bott's is not willing to at least work with the price then they probably think that you don't know what the heck you are talking about... Any good business would at lease lower their price, some will even go lower than the lowest quoted price. Hope this helps =]

Why are you on topix. Be a man take the bid or pass and shut up. Everyone knows they do quality work.

They probably use some of the same "WORKERS" as some of the other contractors

Botts is higher because they do things the right way, both from the work standpoint as well as taxes, permits, workers comp on employees, etc.

That's right Cupcake, they follow the rules and use quality materials & don't cut corners. That's why they are higher. BTW, they don't use "the same workers" they have their own crews. They only outsource things that would take specialized skills, such as granite, cabinets,etc. They do work and maintenance for some of the finest citizens of this town/county. And not just because those people have more money, because they can be trusted.

Bott's is a rip off. That's why they are doing very little business right now. Place has gone to crap ever since dumb and dumber took over. They have always been high and they used to do good work. Now you get the high price but not the quality. My opinion...not worth it. I've dealt with them before. There are several good contractors out there. Just call a local lumber yard and get references, then ask around for opinions. Talk to homeowners that are satisfied and asked who did the work.

there still shouldnt be five thousand dollars difference. i would go with the less bid. five thousand dollars for the same service is too much.if the others where all in line with each other that should tell you something.

Well I asked if they could come down some and explained that all of the other contractors were much lower. They wouldn't budge and even downgraded other contractors. That sealed the deal for me. Not very professional to bad mouth others while they are not present. I think I found a good contractor. I asked around and got some references. Case closed. Thanks.

Botts Construction added on to my house a couple of years ago & I am totally satisfied with their workmanship & professionalism. They stand by their work, use skilled employees and do what they say they say they are going to do. Very nice and honest people to do business with. I just thought I would share my experience.

Too high and by all means too arrogant.

Bott's = slow, high priced, and mediocre. Wealthy people hire them because they don't know anything about construction or painting. Bott's is good at fooling people with money into thinking that higher is always better. Don't waste your time. There are much better builders and painters out there.

Great when the truth comes out about their arrogant attitude and over pricing. Some of there auctions are literally a laughing stock. Can I say dis organized would probably be a compliment. Would not let them do an auction for me if there was no commission.Don't help his country club lifestyle when you can get much better for cheaper and people that appreciate you and don't try to act like they are doing you a favor.

Botts truly is a crooked and very underhand operation. Not to mention all of the good Contracts they have put out of work because of their names and the B.S. they use with their customers. And we can't even get started on the "Botts Boys", especially Joey who is much more crooked than Spencer who is just more arrogant. In essence they all pretty well suck. Everyone should avoid them at all cost.Good Luck

Jerry Botts acts like and thinks his shi! Don't stink. He brags about his financial status constantly. Witnessed a single parent come to mr money bags once for help with housing. He not only refused to help, he gossiped, made fun of and bragged about it. The single parent ended up going to another man who could buy ole Jerry and Spencer out and still have change. Told him, they needed a home and to just be given a chance. This guy, who does by the way do good with the blessings he's been given, helped them out without hesitation. JERRY BOTTS IS GREEDY!

That's what I'm talking about people who have a LITTLE and won't help the less fortunate are assholes. And your right about Mr. B or as a lot of people know him (BETTER THAN YOU) His company has ripped a lot of people and yes he does make fun of people.
