Why Do You Need a General Contractor?-Remodeling and Construction in NJ

The reasons that most folks hire a General Contractor are many:

  1. The job is too large or time-consuming to manage alone.
  2. The job requires the management of a professional.
  3. The job requires several trades whose work needs to be checked prior to hiring.
  4. The job requires a dedicated perfectionist….what?!

Yes, your job-no matter how large or small requires a detail oriented, eagle-eyed, ruthless perfectionist.  Why?  Remember the saying ‘measure twice; cut once’?

The last thing you need is to ‘learn’ about what not to do on a remodeling or new construction project that you have been dreaming about for years.

Ask these questions of your GC to help you decide if he/she is worth hiring.  It just may save you time and money in the long run.

  1. How long have you been in the industry?
  2. How many _______ have you done?
  3. Are you insured?
  4. How long before you start the job?
  5. How long do you estimate the job will take?
  6. Do you have a standard set of sub-contractors or employees that you work with?
  7. What will you do to protect our timeline and budget?
  8. How are you paid?
  9. How will hiring you save me time and money?
  10. How can I trust you will handle my job with care?

Now, armed with these answers, you can make a clear decision regarding the work you are planning.
