Before any Building Contractor Begins Construction Work
Before you sign any type of construction contract and the contractor begins work go through the following checklist.
- Ask to see their Home Builders License Card.
- Ask to see proof of workman's compensation insurance coverage (when applicable) and liability insurance.
- Agree on finance charges and a payment schedule.
- Make sure you have guarantees and warranties in writing.
- Agree on start dates and finish dates for the project. Have these dates written into the contract?
- Make sure the contract is specific, including details about materials, colors, brands and models.
Custom Home Builders
GMCBA has some of the best custom home builders in the Decatur area to help you with your home construction needs. One of the main benefits of building a custom home is your ability to design and select nearly every aspect and element of your new home. Our award winning custom home builders have experience working with a variety of home styles and materials to see your vision to completion.
If you are thinking about building a custom home, we recommend checking each builder’s license, speaking to previous customers, and gathering competitive quotes from at least 3 contractors. Requesting multiple bids is the best way to ensure you get a fair market price that includes the complete scope of work.
General contractors help coordinate all the subcontractors required for large construction projects. If you have a larger home addition or remodel, a general contractor will make sure the carpenters, plumbers, electricians, drywall hangers, painters or whoever you might need to complete your project show up in the right order and do the work that needs to be done in a timely manner without interfering with any other subcontractors.
Hiring a general contractor is a smart choice and can save you money in the long run. Whether it’s a simple home remodel or a major custom home project, there’s a general contractor on this list for you.
Commercial Construction Companies
Commercial construction contractors design, renovate and build all types of commercial structures from smaller retail stores, restaurants and businesses to larger medical, industrial and educational facilities. Commercial contractors expect to submit detailed and accurate bids to potential customers as they compete for commercial building projects. These will include the project scope, work schedule, cost, terms of payment and the formal bid along with any other relative documentation.
As the client, ask potential commercial contractors about their licenses and any special code requirements. They should have broad knowledge concerning building legislation and laws in the building industry along with local building codes and requirements. Keep in mind, good communication is a must and should expect good communication between you, the commercial builder and project manager to make sure the project is being completed on time and on budget.
