Home Remodeling General Contractor FAQ

Q: How do I find a reputable general contractor for my home remodeling project?

A: Research local contractors through online reviews, professional associations, and recommendations from friends and family. Request references from past clients and ensure the contractor is licensed and insured. Here's a helpful guide on how to choose the right general contractor every time.

Q: How much does it typically cost to hire a general contractor?

A: Costs vary depending on the scope of the project, materials, and labor rates. Contractors usually charge a percentage of the total project cost (10-20%) or provide a fixed-price bid. Obtain multiple quotes for comparison. Watch out for contractors offering the lowest bid because they can often end up costing you a lot more. The practice is referred to as low-balling, and its purpose is to get you to snap up the lowest bid. In many cases, the contractor comes back to the homeowner one or more times during the project to demand more money to get the job done. Baum Construction & Development prides itself on providing highly-accurate job quotes. In fact, we guarantee them.

Q: Should I get a written contract with my general contractor?

A: Yes, a written contract is crucial to protect both parties. It should include project details, scope, cost estimates, payment terms, and a timeline for completion.

Q: How do I ensure my general contractor is properly insured?

A: Request a copy of their insurance certificate, including liability and workers' compensation coverage. Verify the policy is active and that the coverage amounts are adequate for your project.

Q: What is a reasonable timeline for my home remodeling project?

A: Timelines vary depending on project complexity, material availability, and contractor workload. Discuss your expectations with the contractor, and make sure the timeline is included in your contract.

Q: How often should I communicate with my general contractor?

A: Establish a communication plan before starting the project, including regular updates and meetings. Open communication ensures expectations are clear and issues are addressed promptly.

Q: Will I need to obtain permits for my home remodeling project?

A: Most significant remodeling projects require permits. Your general contractor should handle obtaining the necessary permits, but it's important to confirm this responsibility before starting the project.

Q: What can I do to prepare my home for the remodeling project?

A: Clear the work area of personal belongings, establish a designated entry/exit point for workers, and discuss any specific requests with your contractor (e.g. dust control or work hour restrictions).

Q: How do I handle changes to the project scope or cost after work has begun?

A: Request a change order from your contractor, which outlines the revised scope, costs, and timeline. Ensure all changes are documented and agreed upon in writing.

Q: What should I do if I have concerns or issues with the work performed by my general contractor?

A: Address concerns directly with the contractor in a timely manner. If issues cannot be resolved, consider mediation or legal action, and consult your contract for dispute resolution options.
