The best term I've heard is "yardstick". If you have zero idea of respective costs then how the hell would you ( or I ) compare quotes, choose a company or trade etc etc. A way forward would be to ascertain the fundamentals, possibly by means of a QS, and build on that to get the particulars fine tuned. I used the current QS report as a scope of works also so any extra or non-encompassed work could be instantly identified, ( great for contractor but equally good for customer ), but one thing is for sure, the QS report is black and white.......This is what your getting and for how much, if you want more the price goes up and vice versa
If you don't have any trade / professional experience then its a definite 'maybe' for a grasp of what's coming and how much it's going to cost.

Anyone got any contacts for a good QS in the Lancashire or Cumbria areas?

Spammers will possibly pick up these and start giving you spam direct.

We didn't have one from the start because we were in too much of a hurry to hit the bat-deadline for working on the roof; if we'd missed this April/May, we'd have had to wait until April/May 2015 to start work. (Also, because my b-in-law was banging on about how we should get one, and he's the sort of person that if he says go left, I immediately want to go right.)
We probably should have waited, but then, if we were the sort of sensible people who'd wait, we wouldn't have bought the chapel in the first place.

I was in my local builders supply co and mentioned the fact the stuff I was pricing was for a new build and the guy behind the counter suggested there was money to be saved by having them look at my plans and producing a fully priced up list of materials. Any thoughts?
