Benefits of a General Contractor

A friend of mine hired a remodeling contractor to give him a new kitchen with an island that included a range and redo the bathrooms. He thought he could observe the process, so he would save himself money by being his own General Contractor and duplicate the project on a rental home that had the same floor plan. Needless to say what took the professional less than two months from the start of construction to finish, took him over four times longer. Words cannot describe the look on his face when I asked, “Where is the fan for the cooktop in the island?” He didn’t think about that. He had all ready lost a lot of rental income, and to realize he was not yet done….


There are many benefits gained from hiring a reputable General Contractor, along with the peace of mind of having an experienced person in charge of your home. Here are five that make a difference:


  1. A General Contractor has experience in customizing a design to your wants and needs, and are familiar with the permitting and home inspection process
  2. They can help narrow the field of material selections to quality that in in your budget
  3. General Contractors have an “A List” of quality employees and professional trade contractors to do the job right
  4. They give trade contractors a lot of work and pay them upon completion. Trade contractors give the General Contractor priority in their schedule. If they are needed on Tuesday, they will be there—so your project is done quickly
  5. They offer warranty on their work.


So check out a General Contractor’s website and social media, read reviews, and interview them to check if they inspire your confidence that they are right for your project.
