Hello Brian, I think it is fair to say that the more information you able to give about your project the better. A realistic budget is reassuring to trades people but if you are unsure what a realistic budget should be don't be afraid to say so. Ask for advice. Most genuine trades people will be more than happy to give you the benefit of their experience. Evaluate the advice you are given and the people who give it to you, just as you would with any other transaction. You are probably seeking a well done job at a fair price. This I believe is what most trades people seek to offer. Not all it is true to say, so read their Rated People Reviews and Ratings. I hope this helps. Best Jim

Hi Brian, Thanks for reaching out. If you're looking for more quotes on your job you may want to try reposting it, and be sure to add details on your intent (i.e. I am ready to hire straight away) and put as much info as possible (have you got the parts e.g.) as this can help your posting appeal to our users. More information can be found at Hope this helps! Best, Alex Ask an Expert team
