Selecting a General Contractor, Honolulu, Hawaii

Whenever you are building a new home or remodeling the one you are living in, selecting the right General Contractor is the key to getting the job done efficiently and on time.  It’s worth taking the time to understand how to find the right General Contractor.  Doing so can spell the difference between a project that runs smoothly or a project filled with CHANGE ORDERS.general contractor

Three qualities to look for in a General Contractor.

A Responsible Bids: Going with the lowest bid may seem like an attractive idea, but contractors who go exceeding low are usually not worth the effort.  Many General Contractors submit a proposal that they think will get them the project. Once selected, they will then figure out how to make a profit.  These contractors are basically guessing.  They are generally contractors that are unlicensed.  The responsible bid is one that the owner can afford and all participants make a reasonable profit.  If the process is done correctly the process will eliminate the need for CHANGE ORDERS.

A team of Professionals & Sub-Contractors is essential <image001.jpg> A General Contractor who works with a team of Professionals & Sub-Contractors may seem like a red flag.  However, when the Owner, Architect, Engineers, and Sub-Contractors work together in the design process, misunderstandings are drastically reduced, and the project runs smoothly because everyone knows what is required of them before the project begins. When this occurs a true cost can be established and a responsible bid can be determined.
