When you are considering remodeling a room in your home, or building an addition onto it, what would you consider to be the thing that holds that project together? At Marathon Remodeling, we know it’s your licensed general contractor.
Skilled workmanship is required so your team of builders must be good. But for the whole team to function flawlessly and get the results you want, the best person to manage that job is the construction contractor.
Save money, get the best materials and have everything completed properly on time. Only with an experienced contractor can you have all of these things.
What a General Contractor Does
General contractors have a lot to offer, but their skills can be boiled down into five primary points.
Knowledge and Awareness
Any good contractor is up on their knowledge of current building trends and technology. They maintain a wealth of knowledge so you as the client don’t have to.
Scheduling and Communication
Don’t want to be a manager communicating with any subcontractors that are necessary? You don’t have to be. Once you tell us your schedule, your contractor will work within that and ensure everyone else does too.
Hiring and Firing
The general contractor will hire subcontractors and team members they trust, and manage them accordingly. If a problem occurs, they will fire them as well.
Building and Maintaining Relationships
From project to project, general contractors build relationships with subcontractors and vendors to get you the best workers, rates and materials.
Purchasing and Bargaining
With the vendor relationships they build, your contractor will use that to bargain in your favor when it comes to build materials.
Because of everything your general construction contractor offers, it’s clear what the advantages are. You’ll be working with someone who can look at the big picture after completing hundreds of successful builds, who comes with an established team, knowledge, financial bonuses, and most of all—delivers peace of mind.
Any renovation has the potential to be stressful, so minimize on that by hiring a general contractor.
