Extras are a dollar value that is associated with elements or materials in the home that a client might want to upgrade. To be an “extra” this would not be included in the original budget of the project.
Example: The contractor has a specific dollar amount allowed for hardwood, tiles, etc. If the client wants to upgrade to a more expensive type of tile and/or hardwood, this would be considered an “extra” and can be added to the final sale price or paid directly to the suppliers that provide the upgrade. Good communication with your builder is key. In our initial meeting we will create a “schedule” for all materials with a list of our suppliers.
