How to Politely Turn Down a Kitchen Remodeling Bid



As you plan your kitchen remodel, you’ll likely be contacting several contractors. They’ll provide bids for you to compare so you can choose the kitchen quote that best fits your needs and budget. After you’ve made a decision, should you inform the other prospective contractors? The short answer is yes. Here’s why. 

Why You Should Communicate

It may make you feel a bit awkward, but it’s best to inform the other contractor(s) who also submitted quotes on your kitchen remodel. After all, this won’t be the first time they are rejected and if you go about it directly and kindly, they’ll appreciate it. 

Of course, some may ask a few follow-up questions, including asking the reason for not choosing them. Provide brief and honest feedback. Doing this can help them identify any problems they may have when providing quotes to customers, as well as what they can do to stay competitive with other local remodelers. 

Useful Tips

Send an Email

Calling a contractor directly may not be the best course of action as the conversation can turn a bit emotional, especially if the contractor becomes upset about why they weren’t chosen. You also don’t want to end things badly if you are interested in working with them on a future project, so informing them by email can be a good compromise. 

Maintain a Positive Tone

Positivity can also make a big difference. Tell them that you appreciate the work they’ve done in putting together a quote and point out the aspects of their proposal that you liked.
