Just what does a quality contractor do? How do you determine if someone who’s claiming to be a quality contractor actually is? A good contractor works in the same way the house is built— from the ground up. Consider the construction of a house as the metaphor for the contractor: you build up your house by laying down a solid foundation, erect your walls, nails and hardware holding your lumber in place, then comes the roof, then comes the siding, the finished insides to the house, etc., and, if just one of these steps is done incorrectly, the step immediately following it will have problems, and so on and so forth. The contractors the quality of the steps, he’s the one who takes understands and performs correctly each step required of the job—regardless of the size and scope—and he does each step the right way.
A quality contractor starts by giving an accurate representation as to the job. He estimates the job, and sets the schedule and the time-table for the job. These first steps are vitally important to the rest of the job, because, consider a job from start to finish: the contractor is going to have to have the foresight to schedule the work to be done—days, weeks, even months in advance. If the initial timetable for the job is misstated, or underestimated, the work that will come later could be compromised.
A quality general contractor is like the coach of a sports team: he’s going to make sure that everyone’s pulling their weight, makes sure that everyone who’s working on the job is working with the same goals as the rest of the team. Coordination and teamwork is vitally important to performing any construction job, from the smallest to the biggest.
There are contractors everywhere stating that they can do practically anything. But, when you’re considering hiring a quality contractor for your next project, you want the best, most efficient, most experienced contractor you can find, and you shouldn’t have to settle for anything less.
