Project Estimates

Daizen develops estimates based on the unique requirements of each project taking into account the type and size of materials chosen, proportions, custom finishes and accessories. With this variability, we quote based on the volume of wood in board/feet units. We provide every client the opportunity to review the budget prior to beginning work so expectations and costs are well understood.
