General contractor versus specialized contractor

There are fundamental differences between a general contractor and specialized contractors. A general contractor acts as a project manager to coordinate your construction work. They have the connections to specialty construction companies and subcontractors. This type of construction management service means that expert contractors will work on each aspect of your home upgrade or renovation project. If you hire a general contractor to oversee project management in this manner, you can be more confident about meeting deadlines and avoiding delays due to logistics issues (i.e. building permits).

The skills of Specialized contractors are more tailored to their specific discipline. A specialized contractor is a contractor who uses a skill in a more efficient and proficient manner, often taking years to attain such a level of proficiency. They sometimes work directly for general contractors or on a contract basis for a home owner or property owner.

What to do when you want to contact a general contractor?

As the property owner, it is your responsibility to research the contractor. The first step when interested in contacting anyone in the construction industry is to:

  1. check that they have the required licenses. You should not believe that they are an award-winning contractor just because they tell you.
  2. Check reviews from their previous clients and don’t hesitate to compare their prices with other bids.
  3. Finally, you should be certain to sign an agreement setting the project details and price.

Examples of projects for which a general contractor can help you

A general contractor can oversee a variety of different residential construction projects. For example, they could:

  • organize a kitchen or bathroom renovation,
  • upgrade your roofing, or
  • finish your basement.

Other real estate improvements, such as:

  • new doors or windows, or even a
  • home expansion project could also be possible.

Again, a general contractor can oversee everything in the construction process. To find the best general contractor in your area, post your construction project on Smart Reno Express - ­to compare quotes.
