It’s a question we get often, and it’s a fair one. Let’s dive into the reasons behind this practice and why it benefits both you and us.

Compensating for Expertise

First and foremost, our consultation fee compensates our consultants for their time, knowledge and skill set. Our team brings years of experience to the table, helping you solve problems, make decisions and improve your home. According to a report by the National Association of Home Builders, experienced consultants can significantly increase a home’s value through strategic improvements and repairs . By charging a fee, we ensure that you receive the highest level of expertise and tailored advice for your unique situation.

Protecting Our Time and Yours

We understand that deciding on a home improvement project is a significant commitment. Our consultation fee ensures that your time isn’t wasted if you choose to take your business elsewhere. This policy protects us from spending countless hours providing free advice that may not lead to a project. It’s a practical necessity to run a successful business. According to a study by Houzz, homeowners spend an average of 3-6 months in the planning phase of major renovations . A structured consultation process helps streamline this planning and ensures that your time is used effectively.

Avoiding Free Advice Pitfalls

“If you don’t charge for consultations, you could be in danger of handing out lots of ‘free’ advice,” and this isn’t feasible when running a successful business. The home improvement industry is highly competitive, and giving away free advice can lead to significant financial losses. A survey by the Joint Center for Housing Studies at Harvard University found that professional contractors spend nearly 20% of their time on consultations and planning . Charging a consultation fee ensures that this time is accounted for and valued appropriately.

The Necessity of Consultation

Why is a consultation necessary? The aim of a consultation is to ensure you have sufficient information to make well-informed decisions. It’s an opportunity for you to express your needs and for us to understand your vision and constraints. This collaborative approach ensures that any workers involved have a reasonable opportunity to provide their views and understand the reasons behind the decisions. In the end, a thorough consultation helps prevent misunderstandings and sets clear expectations for the project.


By understanding the value behind our consultation fee, you can make more informed decisions about your home improvement projects. At Valor Home Services, our consultation fee is an investment in your home’s future. It guarantees that you receive expert advice, protects both parties’ time, and ensures the success of your project. We believe in honesty, integrity, service, and excellence in everything we do.
