When it comes time for a home renovation project, you’ll likely want to turn to the experts – general contractors. A general contractor can help you manage your project from soup to nuts, which will help eliminate a lot of headaches for you, and will help your project progress smoothly. But you may be wondering what exactly is a general contractor? How do they help? Is it worth it to contract with one for your home remodeling project?
What is a general contractor?
A general contractor serves as the project manager for your entire project. He or she will manage the actual site on a daily basis, work with all vendors and trades people, and handle all communications with all the parties involved throughout your entire project.
How does a general contractor help?
A general contractor will manage the provision of everything needed for your home remodeling project. This includes material, labor, equipment and ancillary services. Your general contractor will hire subcontractors to perform the actual construction work, or he or she may employ their own builders. They will handle all aspects of your remodeling project, including: application for any necessary permits; personnel management; disposal of construction debris; monitoring schedules and budgets and keeping records of all phases of the project.
Is it worth it to hire a general contractor for your home remodeling project?
Unless you are an expert at home remodeling, it is likely that you will require some help. By hiring a general contractor, you’re contracting with someone who has hands-on experience managing remodeling projects. They know all the reliable subcontractors, understand codes and licensing, and are able to negotiate better prices on materials and labor. Plus, a general contractor helps alleviate some of the worries you might have, as well as some of the guesswork. Home renovation can be stressful – letting a general contractor manage your project for you will eliminate some of that stress.
