Frequently asked questions about general contractors

It may seem more economical to hire several subcontractors rather than one general contractor for your building project. Some state licensing rules even require hiring a general contractor for certain projects. Even if this isn’t a state requirement in your case, it often makes sense for homeowners to hire a professional, licensed, and insured general contractor for certain projects. A general contractor will know the ins and outs of the business, and will work with subcontractors whom they trust to get the work done efficiently, safely, and on time.

General contractors know that their business can be made or broken on their reputation. They will work hard to get your project done on time, orchestrating the work of subcontractors so that

the whole project turns out just as planned. While it may be tempting to skip hiring a

general contractor in favor of hiring many subcontractors for lesser initial cost, you may end up spending more in the long run in addition to the time and headache involved in coordinating the work of subcontractors. Hiring a general contractor you can work closely with throughout a project can help you avoid potentially costly—and maybe even dangerous—miscommunication down the road.

First off, sort out every possible detail in advance using a detailed project plan—including details like specifications for fixtures, finishes, and fittings—to avoid cost gaps in the contractor’s initial bid. The more specific you are, the more realistic and accurate the bid will be. Stay in close contact with the project lead, and try to meet with them every day to stay on top of progress, troubleshoot any issues, and avoid costly miscommunication. If possible, try to be on-site at the start of each day. Make sure it’s OK to call or text your contractor throughout the day. It also makes sense to keep a project journal to write down product order numbers, jot down questions and ideas, and note delivery dates. This type of journal can make it easier to sort out any disputes that may arise later in the project. Similarly, be sure to track any changes to the initial project plan in writing (this is usually called a “change order”). If unforeseen changes are required, make sure your contractor offers a bid for the change in writing. (You can specify that changes be made in writing in your original contract.) Other tips:

  • check work as it progresses
  • pay only for completed work
  • be a fair customer by paying bills on time, responding quickly to questions, and treating your contractor and their workers fairly
  • know the workers’ names, and make sure they have what they need

Establishing a good working relationship with your contractor from the get-go will lead to a more successful completed project in the end.

Some general contractors charge a flat fee, but most general contractors get paid a percentage

of the overall cost of a completed project which is called a “markup.” This amount covers their overhead, which includes advertising, insurance, office expenses, and their own salary. Remember that contractors will ask for a percentage of the total cost of the project up front in order to get started. But make sure this is no more than 15 percent, which is a fair and decent amount to start most home projects. Most states cap this up-front percentage at 33 percent, and a good contractor should have enough credit to cover other up-front costs.

A big remodeling project can be a costly investment. It’s a long-term investment in your home, so it makes sense to look beyond just the contractor’s fee when choosing a general contractor for your remodel. You’ll want to hire someone can provide proof of licensing, insurance, references, and a worthy track record. When you enter a project with a contractor, you need a pro you trust with your home, so it’s wise to do your homework upfront for a successful outcome.

Start with a detailed and specific plan including the scope of the remodeling work you want to have done, what materials you want to use, and specifications for any fixtures, finishes, and appliances. Once you have this plan, start talking to contractors to get estimates and formal bids. Ask around for local contractor recommendations at your local hardware store, or go online and read contractors’ reviews (but take these with a grain of salt because they tend to skew toward people who are unhappy with a project versus those who were satisfied with the end result).

Be sure to interview at least three contractors while bearing in mind that you will be relying on this person to bring your project in on budget and on time. A good contractor will likely be very busy, so expect a waiting period for quality workmanship. Choose a contractor with experience in the type of job you require. Ask for proof of licensing and insurance along with any relevant licenses for subcontractors. Check contractor credentials with your local Better Business Bureau. Be clear about what work will be done by the contractor, and which parts will go to a subcontractor. Only sign a detailed contract, and be sure to get the proper permits for your project. Stay in close contact with the contractor to avoid errors and miscommunication. After all, a successful remodeling project depends on hiring a good contractor.

Take proper steps before hiring a contractor to prevent costly headaches later on. Start by

working with a professional architect or designer who can not only provide permit drawings, but also provide all the information a contractor will need to offer an accurate and realistic cost and time estimate. You’ll need to include details like finishes, fixtures, plumbing work, electrical installations, and possible millwork. Come up with a specifications list in advance in order to pick finishes, appliances, fittings, and fixtures that will fall inside your budget and meet your personal requirements. If you work with a professional architect or designer and have a complete set of plans and specifications for your project, as the pro for the names of a few builders to send your plans for pricing.

Make sure your contractor is licensed and insured. Check out a potential contractor’s previous work. They should be able to offer examples. When you interview contractors remember that you will be spending quite a bit of time working with this person. You need to feel you can trust them because unexpected extras are bound to come up. Make sure your contractor provides a timeline that they can stick to, and that works with your needs. Choose your contractor wisely for a successful outcome.

Be sure your general contractor is licensed and insured. It may be less expensive to hire an uninsured contractor, but consider the potential cost down the road. When you hire an insured contractor, they take on responsibility for the build and anything that happens at the worksite. In the event of a job-site injury or property damage during your remodeling project, a properly insured contractor will shield you from potentially catastrophic costs. Homeowners’ insurance policies cover property damage, but these policies have limitations. Be sure to hire a contractor that carries both contractor’s liability insurance and worker’s compensation insurance. A good general contractor takes responsibility for their reputation. Offering proof of both proper licensing and insurance is a sign of a contractor’s general reliability. Contractors must have a license in order to obtain insurance. Reliable contractors are likely to do an excellent job the first time in order to retain their license. Work that is not up to contract standards may lose a contractor their license. Be sure to ask for proof for insurance. Hiring a contractor with the proper insurance saves you money down the line in lots of different ways. Never be tempted by what looks like a bargain.

Every project differs, but you should ask any general contractor for an estimate, before they do any work. In fact, ask for their general payment terms before any general contractor services work is done.

If the job is large and going to take longer than a day, it's common practice for general contractors to request a down payment. Usually, this will be around 25% so they can commence work on your general contractor project.

If it's a quick job, you'll likely be given an invoice/bill when the job is complete. Then it's up to you and the general contractor to determine if you pay immediately or can send payment at a later date.
