Hi guys, a while back i posted a thread in regards to a retaining wall contract i was bidding on. I listed the run-down on all materials, my costs for these materails,labor and so on and so forth. When you all replied back you stated that I was way underbidding the job. Most of you seemed to be saying I should be bidding between 8k - 10k Well I took your advice and bid the wall at 9250.00 I have since been in touch with the customer several times and we have altered the design slightly to lower the cost some. ( we did away with the capstone, and changed to a different style of block) Today i got a call from the customer stating that they think the bid is still too high and that they are now calling in someone else to look at the yard and quote the wall. The final plan called for a 42" high wall 50' long using oversived aultwall block, and then we were backfilling behind the wall with approx 40 cu yds of fill and topsoil, and then laying sod on top. What I am worried about is if I am now pricing too high. Or is it that this customer wants a cheap wall and not a quality one?
