Using Contractors

By Olin Subscribe to RSS | July 28th 2012 | Views:

If you want to make extensive changes to your home then you have two major options regarding how you go about this. On the one hand you have the option to hire all of the various workmen that you want to use yourself and to oversee the project personally, and on the other hand you have the option to use a contractor who is someone who will handle that for you buy hiring in all the different workers and overseeing the project. Alternatively you might use a construction company, which will act very much like a contractor in overseeing the whole project and overseeing every aspect of the project for you so that you don't have to. Here we will look at what it means to use a contractor and why they are so useful.

First of all, it is a common mistake to think that hiring workmen yourself will save you money. While this is something that in theory could be cheaper, in the vast number of cases that simply is not the case. This is partly because a contractor has useful contacts and is able to get discounted services and products as a result. Because they use so many different services, it is prudent for builders, electricians, plumbers and the rest to offer them discounted rates which means that you end up paying less. Likewise they can buy equipment and materials in bulk, again saving a lot of money.

At the same time using a contractor greatly reduces the chance of something going wrong. This is simply a matter of experience. When was the last time you renovated a room? Chances are never – and even if you have then you will only have done so a few times. On the other hand, a contractor does this for a living and has renovated hundreds of rooms, build hundreds of properties and deal with all kinds of problems. This means that they can see what's going to go wrong and what will be needed ahead of time and it means they can make sure that your project goes ahead smoothly and with minimal issues. This then means that you will save money because fewer things will go wrong – you won't accidentally drill into an electric cable or a pipe and you won't need repairs as a result.

Furthermore a contractor can help to plan and oversee the whole project so that it all goes as smoothly and efficiently as possible. They will be able to know which services precisely you are going to need to use rather than only finding out when something goes wrong. For many people there is a risk of 'unknown unknowns' and they come across problems they hadn't even considered. This then extends the amount of time that the renovations take, whereas a contractor or construction company can plan ahead and give you accurate predictions of the price and the timescale which allows you to plan the rest of your life accordingly rather than be at the mercy of every little logistical issue.
