When To Hire A Contractor

Contractors manage all aspects of a project, including applying for building permits, hiring subcontractors, overseeing cleanup and more. If you are considering a major home improvement project, a general contractor is a beneficial and necessary addition to your team.

For Example

When working with an architect on a home addition, once the plans are finalized, it is time to find a contractor who can bring your design to life. If your remodeling project requires the work of multiple professionals, it is usually beneficial to hire a general contractor to oversee and coordinate the entire project. For example, a kitchen remodel usually requires a plumber, electrician, tiler, drywaller and a carpenter. Your general contractor can hire and oversee the subcontractors and schedule their work to keep the project moving along. The right general contractor can help coordinate all the work, including having a structural engineer assess the plan to ensure it is built correctly and safely.

Contractors also obtain the proper permits and build your addition according to code. General contractors are up to date on local building codes and ordinances and can apply for all the permits your project requires on a timely basis.

Finally, it is important that your architect and contractor work together, and in many instances it is the contractor who can put you in touch with the best architect for your project.
