Vastly different contractor pricing again

Thursday, August 25th, 2016

I have to replace a 32 3/8 x 54 5/8 x 3/8 pane of tempered glass in my shower. The Glass Guru quoted me $467.08. The Glass Doctor quoted $800 even.

As I wrote about¬†in I’m really surprised at the range of prices when getting quotes. You’d think that since material and labor costs are similar, prices would be comparable between competing companies. With car¬†shopping you don’t see one dealership sell a car for $46,700 and another dealership across the street sell that same car for $80,000 but that is essentially what is happening here.
