No matter how handy you may be with the power tools, there will come a time when you will need to hire the services of a general contractor. Sure you may pride yourself on your ability to handle even the most complex building tasks or your complete collection of shiny, well maintained tools. But if you are like most homeowners, you will eventually come across a construction or renovation job that is simply beyond your-or your toolbox's-capabilities. It is during these very occasions that you will need a general contractor.
Unfortunately, the task of finding a qualified building contractor is easier said than done. For every qualified building general contractor out there, many more are liable to botch up the job! It is a long and arduous road to becoming a general contractor, and relatively few are qualified. Nevertheless, there are general contractors out there that can help you realize your construction plans. You simply have to know what to look for in a qualified building contractor. Here are a few ideas:
The first thing you will want to look for in a general contractor is a set of good references. If you know anyone who has had construction work done recently, they can be valuable sources of references for good contractors. This will also give you a chance to find out firsthand from the actual client how well a particular contractor performed the job.
If you can't get any good references from people in your immediate circle, you will have to ask around elsewhere. Ask the staff at architectural, design, or even construction supply firms for any recommendations they may be able to give you. Keep in mind however that leads you dig up from third parties will be a lot harder to verify, so you have your work cut out for you in terms of making sure the recommended contractors can meet your expectations.
