At Montana Custom Beams, we take pride in our commitment to transparency and fairness in our pricing. We believe every customer should receive the same level of quality and service, irrespective of the scale or nature of the project.

Standardized Pricing Method: We have a standardized pricing method for our timber and custom joinery services. This method ensures that all our customers are charged consistently based on the materials used and the work undertaken. It allows for transparent pricing, where costs are determined by the quantifiable amount of resources and labor that goes into each project.

Equality in Pricing: Every client, regardless of project size or complexity, is assured that they are getting the same rate for the same services and materials as any other client. We do not discriminate in pricing based on any external factors; everyone is provided the same standardized rate.

By maintaining a consistent pricing method, we establish trust with our clients, ensuring they know they are getting a fair price for the quality of work and materials they receive.
