I’m in a contractor pickle! - Posted by Carey_PA

This is nothing big but I’m new to this and I don’t quite know how to handle it.
I had several estimates from contractors and then I was settling on one and a co-worker recommended his brother. SO the brother comes out and takes a look and says he’ll get an estimate to me.
Well today, I verbally told another contractor ok, but I know he’s screwing me on some things. (we argued over price a bit and I got him to knoce $700 off the estimate)
So I go to check my faxes and THE CO-WORKERS BROTHER had sent me the estimate!!! Low and behold he’s an honest guy and ALL OF HIS PRICES ARE REASONABLE!!!
Now I’m in a pickle…what do I do? Do I give it to the brother (his price is $2,000 lower than the other guy and I know people that he’s done work for and they say he does GREAT WORK) and if I do give it to the brother, how do I break the news to the other guy??
Thanks in advance!!
