If there’s any construction or restoration work to be done at your house, you can stave off a lot of headaches by hiring a good general contractor. Whether you need roofing, flooring, plumbing or other services, a qualified general contractor can make sure all the work goes as smoothly as possible. Among other things, general contractors ensure that a work schedule is adhered to, all necessary permits are obtained and any disputes with suppliers are resolved.
TAP INTO THE RESOURCES OF GENERAL CONTRACTORS
Most general contractors have vast networks of well-established relationships with subcontractors who are reliable and do good work. These relationships can also be the difference in ensuring your job is completed on time as the general contractor can be essential in making sure your job remains high on the priority list for scheduling. Without a general contractor in place, most subcontractors will assume that work for you is a one-off deal, and you’ll be subjected to being moved further down the queue.
HIRING GENERAL CONTRACTORS = BEING PREPARED
Because of their experience, general contractors are all too familiar with the potential pitfalls involved with any home restoration project. In cases of extreme weather, for example – like we’ve recently experienced in our area – the general contractor will know that the jobsite needs to be properly prepared beforehand and afterwards.
DON’T GET LOST IN PAPERWORK
Even though we’re supposedly living in a paperless society, any restoration work on your home is sure to get you through the pearly gates of Paperwork Heaven. A good general contractor knows all there is to know about building codes, permits and the proper liability insurance, which is essential. In fact, most reputable general contractors carry worker’s compensation and liability insurance so that they – and you – are covered in cases of unforeseen and unfortunate events.
HOW TO SELECT A QUALIFIED & RELIABLE GENERAL CONTRACTOR
When it comes to selecting a general contractor you can rely on, you can pretty much ignore advertisements or the Yellow Pages. Anyone can place an ad there. Instead, realize that the Internet is your friend, so log on and look for sites that offer customer reviews. Also, talk with your friends and neighbors who have recently had work completed on their property.
