    Bids aren’t verbal
    They are fixed written costs to an exact specification. (Price to Install 10 x 10 patio in red holland stone in herringbone pattern using ez pave edge restraint system with 6” compacted base and 1” leveling course. Patio to be centered on back door on south side of home and level with no step down from inside floor.)
    The specification is presented by another so anyone putting a price on it is putting a price on the exact same thing,
    If you are doing the same thing above but I’m doing it in gray basket weave then those are two proposals because we came up with our own specs.

    “Tossing out a price” in an informal way is a quote.
    Ie “you said it was going to be this price”
