What’s the Difference Between a Virtual Estimate and an At-Home Consultation?

Philana Kotiuga Penalosa February 17,2021

Virtual Estimate
An estimate is a rough calculation of the cost of your project. While an at-home consultation will allow us to provide you with an exact price, we understand that sometimes a quick estimate is preferred when you’re at the beginning of planning a home renovation project. Our teams provide virtual estimates through video calls, in order to meet these needs. Prior to the virtual meeting, we’ll ask you to provide some key information, along with photographs of the surfaces you’d like to have painted. We will then reach out to you virtually, to discuss the project, provide you with the estimate, answer any of your questions, and discuss whether you want to proceed to an at-home consultation.

At-Home Consultation
An at-home consultation allows us to view your home and discuss the revamp that you have in mind. The duration of the consultation is typically up to an hour, and it’s important that you are present so that we can properly assess the project. We’ll start our visit by introducing ourselves and asking you some questions to better understand what surfaces you want to have painted. If you are planning to have the exterior of your home beautified, we’ll walk around your home together to assess the complexity of the work that needs to be done. If you are planning a kitchen revamp, we’ll enter your home to take a look at your kitchen and gain a better understanding of the size of the job. Whether you are planning an exterior or kitchen revamp, we’ll discuss colors, show our sample boards, explain our painting process, provide you with an exact price, explain payment options, and provide you with an expected timeframe for carrying out your Spray-Net transformation.
