Why You Need an Experienced General Contractor
Here are sound and sensible reasons why an experienced general contractor – one with a proven track record and an unquestionable reputation – is the right person who will deliver on your goal of an ideal place to live or do business:
First is SAFETY.
An experienced general contractor usually has grown his or her business over the years of building and renovating homes or offices. Lessons have been learned in dealing with manpower, beefing up equipment and logistics, supervising the different subcontractors, and ensuring that the project site is accident-free.
Compared to a rookie, an experienced general contractor will set up devices and construction systems according to the building code of the area. He or she knows how to deal with occupational hazards, such as fatal falls; to enclose diggings into which a random passer-by could fall; and to implement strict measures against compromising the health and well-being of people within or close to the premises.
Second is CLEANLINESS.
An experienced general contractor has a plan that includes cleaning up after each process, and tidying the site properly.
Compared to a neophyte, an experienced general contractor will not dump garbage and other waste materials in the wrong places, like oil or solvents onto the ground or into sewers. He or she is aware that doing this can damage soil fertility, or pollute the water courses.
Third is WORKMANSHIP.
An experienced general contractor has earned enough knowledge and skill to construct and improve homes and establishments with superior quality.
Compared to a tyro, an experienced general contractor knows how to oversee his or her people in working on details, such as sanding, grouting, waterproofing, installing cornices and panels, and making sure that measurements are taken with precision. He or she will not compromise the quality of work at all costs!
Fourth is SATISFACTION GUARANTEE.
An experienced general contractor is armed to offer clients satisfaction guarantees to demonstrate his or her expertise and confidence in project management.
Compared to a newbie, an experienced general contractor will also offer free consultation and inspection, a detailed and justifiable estimate, and a post-project evaluation to assure clients that requirements have been met according to standards.
Fifth is PROFESSIONALISM.
An experienced general contractor has been steeped in on-the-job training, as well as in passing a battery of government-administered specialty tests. More than being duly-certified in different qualifications and skill levels, he or she has tried and tested several approaches in managing construction and improvement projects so there will be little room for mistakes.
Compared to beginners, most experienced general contractors are fully licensed, bonded, insured, and verified by trade and industry associations.
After complying with requirements, companies of experienced general contractors are licensed to operate in the area/s stated in certifications, permits, and other pertinent legal documents. Companies that are bonded means that the owners have placed funds under state security, in the event that clients filed and won a claim against them. Meanwhile, companies that are insured means that the owners pay insurance premiums to cover any injuries or property damage arising from their services.
