Request an estimate or quotation from a builder

Use this letter to request an estimate or a quotation from a builder for undertaking building work. An estimate is an educated guess at what a job may cost, whilst a quotation is a fixed price for the work completed. You may find that a builder is more likely to give you an estimate than a quotation - this document includes guidance about how you might convert an estimate into a quotation. There is also information about how to assess whether the estimate/quotation you have been given is a good price for the work involved.
