Welcome to satasat.com, the link between consumers and qualified professionals. Our service was created to provide consumers knowledge when looking for service professionals and the confidence to move forward with a project. At the same time we want to provide qualified professionals an affordable way to competitively display their services and qualifications to consumers. Often consumers spend hours per day online researching the best prices or brands for $100 electronics or other goods. Unfortunately seldom does a consumer do any research or comparison on a several hundred or thousand dollar remodel, addition, repair or other required services.
When an “older” family member received a roofing quote from a “big name” company the price first caught them off guard. Unfortunately the typical consumer does not know how to complete or understand the average cost of services, and most of the time a professional is required. Shortly before signing on the dotted line and handing over a deposit they were encouraged to get quote from another reputable roofing company. Sure enough the first roofing company was 40% OR $6,750 higher in price APPLES TO APPLES, QUALIFICATIONS TO QUALIFICATIONS the only difference was the price.
The question had to be asked, WHY SO HIGH? We took this question and thought about it for a while. Often times people don’t think about this question and allow themselves to be “sold” a product or service without the proper information. Many times the low bidder is not always the one to choose, but sometimes could be. While sometimes the high bidder might be a better fit for your project. If you feel more comfortable with a professional who charges a higher price because of their qualifications USE THEM! But if a professional meets your requirements and able to fulfill your needs for less USE THEM! The decision should be yours. You should be able to make a single request and get all of the information needed to make an educated pressure free decision.
satasat.com allows you to make these requests. Many times a professional will be able to give you a general idea on what their prices or fees are immediately if given a few answers to general questions related to their trades. Most estimates can be broken into a square foot cost. Most ALL professional know there per square foot costs but they can vary drastically based on different variables. If you provide a professional with many of these variables they may be able to give you a general idea of what to expect before a meeting. This should not be used to replace a professional’s visit and written estimate. Many professional would prefer to give you a general idea of costs with hopes that you call them when you are ready to schedule a real appointment.
Our service respects your time along with the professionals in the early due diligence stage of a project. If you wanted your house painted but only budgeted $1,500 and all professionals came in higher than $4,000 many would say you set unrealistic expectations and misused the time of a professional. Rather, completing a simple request form on our site and stating: I have a budget of $1,500 my house is a single story 2,000sqft concrete block home it was painted 8 years ago and I would like to paint it with Sherwin Williams paint. I have attached a picture of the home and before I meet with the professionals I would like a general square foot cost of painting and the services you provide.
Now a professional has the ability to reply with their comments and allows you to review each professionals qualifications, general pricing and pictures of past work. The ball is now rolling on your project and only minutes were spent, no money and no time off work to walk the project with multiple subcontractors. You became more educated on the service you requested and can now make more of an educated and pressure free decision. This now without a salesman telling you why the other company looking at your job is the worst company in the world and how they scammed their second cousins, friends, sisters, neighbor 10 years ago.
Again our service is NOT a replacement for a face to face meeting. NEVER hire a professional until you have reviewed their qualifications, references, and pictures of past work. A face to face meeting ensure you are comfortable with them and lets face it they need to be comfortable with you also. Some projects will make you partners for the next few days, weeks, months or years and a project can’t be successful unless there is a good working relationship.
Within our site all of your projects, documents, and communications are easily managed under each job name and can be referenced back to whenever needed. Our system notifies each party when a request is submitted or when a professional accepts the request. Our built in messaging system allows you to communicate with each other and keep track of requests and replies.
Our contractor and owner builder consumers will find a great benefit in being able to submit their blueprints and request multiple subcontracted trades with one request. satasat.com allows you to manage ALL of your projects within our site to ensure they are being completed by the most qualified professionals and ensures cost effectiveness.
