Things to Look for in a General Contractor


Are they good at communicating with you? If not then they may not be good at giving you the service you deserve. They may not be able to communicate with sub-contractors well either, and that can lead to an inefficient, slow and over-budget project.

Contracts - Project Dates, Details & Responsibilities:

Before signing a contract or letting construction begin make sure you know
  • who is responsible for getting the needed building permits
  • when they will start and end work
  • the project budget
  • payment dates and schedule
  • cleanup details
  • also get an exact description of the project scope, to include a list of materials being used
  • make sure any verbal promises are in the contract

Itemized Bills:

A quality general contractor realizes the value they create and your need to understand charges. They should not be afraid to give you an itemized bill. Typically general contractors will add a percentage to the construction costs for their management time and services.


Obviously a recommendation from trusted friends goes a long way, but also be on the look out for things that might indicate questionable behavior, like
  • requiring over 50% payment up front
  • refusal to give an exact quote before work begins
  • lack of insurance or contractor registration number
  • unmarked vehicles
  • high pressure sales tactics
