I know construction in DC is in-demand (and thus expensive), but they basically refused to provide an estimate because we told them our target budget and timeframe. Obviously we set those as goals, knowing there’s always some flexibility needed. Their response was that they wouldn’t be able to accommodate us anytime soon, our timing was not “realistic,” and we’d basically have to double our budget. Sure maybe we were on the low end but we requested an estimate for a reason (and we have the cash, we just don’t want to spend every nickel). Thanks for your terrible service, we’ll take our business elsewhere!
