Why Choose a General Contractor?

Many customers ask themselves '"why should I hire a general contractor?"

Here we are going to list important factors to consider before your next project.

The Role of a General Contractor:

General contractors are construction experts who provide comprehensive services to handle any construction or renovation project. It does not matter if someone is searching for painting, windows, siding, plumbing, flooring, or roofing services, construction companies with general contractors on-staff can handle it all. They will manage all aspects of the job to ensure it is completed properly.

Pros for hiring a General Contractor:

  1. One Company/Warranty - When a general contractor is hired, they are going to oversee all aspects of the project that is being done giving you a single point of contact. The general contractor is going to have a full view of the budget, timeline, and scope of the construction project and will work to ensure that clients remain informed during the process. If customer has a question or concern, they will know who they need to call and how to reach them at any given time. You, as the customer, will also only have to pay one company for every trade completed on your project, and Instead of managing multiple different warranties with various companies when you hire a GC your project is managed under a single warranty.

  2. Contractors Have an Established Network of Subcontractors - One of the main benefits offered by hiring a general contractor is that they have a large network of subcontractors who are working for them. This helps to speed up the timeline of the project. General contractors know how to properly and effectively manage the subcontractors they hire to make sure that the project is completed in a timely and efficient manner.

  3. Adequate Insurance Coverage - When a general contractor is hired, the person hiring them can feel confident the project will be covered by the company’s insurance coverage. Thanks to general liability insurance, the property owner will not be considered liable for any type of damages or accidents that occur while construction is going on.

  4. Save Time and Money - By selecting a quality and reputable general contractor, it is possible to save a lot of money on several expensive items. Some general contractors will also have associations with a bigger network of suppliers who can provide materials at a lower rate than what non-contractors would receive. As a result, the general contractors are going to become a preferred seller when they develop these trusted relationships over time with certain industry suppliers. This helps them secure a lower rate and these savings are often passed on to their clients. General contractors can also help clients save time. Since they have pre-established relationships, it is possible to get materials on an as-needed basis. This is going to help the client save time on their project, avoid expensive delays, and move the project forward faster.

  5. Customizable Services Based on the Needs of the Project - With a general contractor, there is no type of one-size-fits-all solution. Instead, they will customize the services and solutions offered to ensure that the client’s vision is brought to life. All the client must do is to provide information about the goals they have for the project. The contractor is then going to put everything into motion to ensure the project is completed to the client’s specifications. The result achieved is unique and something the property owner is going to be proud of.
