Our publisher's recently renovated co-op.
In this installment of UrbanTurf Reader Asks, a reader wants to know if it is suitable to split renovation work between two different contractors.
I need a quick bit of advice from the UrbanTurf audience. I am in the midst of renovating my new co-op. If I am 'shopping around' for contractors, is it okay to hire one to do one aspect in my place and another to do something else? My example: A recommended floor guy gave me an estimate recently that is a full $2,000 less than the estimate given by another contractor. If I decide to go with the floor guy for just the floors, and the other contractor for the rest of the work, would that go over okay or is it a faux pas of sorts in the industry? Thanks for the advice!
