Why Do I Need A Cedar City General Contractor?

If you’re a do-it-yourself kind of person, you may question why you would use a general contractor for your residential projects. Everyone's needs are different but in many cases a good contractor is indispensable. The key is to have an understanding of what it is that contractors do.

What Are the Responsibilities of a General Contractor?

Residential contractors oversee and coordinate nearly every aspect of a remodeling or home improvement project. They are responsible for the hiring of other professionals from painters and flooring installers to plumbing and electrical subcontractors. Your general contractor will schedule subcontractors so that work is completed in the most efficient order.

Contractors also have the correct licensing, worker’s compensation and insurance giving them liability for property damage or injuries that may occur.

The less tangible — but still important — value they bring to your joIn addition, should something go wrong, the general contractor will be responsible for having it made right and for the costs to do so.

General contractors can also play a role in the validity of certain material or product warranties. Many products have warranties that will be voided if the installation isn’t performed by a qualified general contractor.

Hiring a general contractor such as Sherman Construction in Las Vegas comes with expertise in project management. This includes knowledge of the best construction methods, local building codes and the industry standards that apply to your particular project.

When to hire a general contractor?

The following is a list of questions you should consider when deciding whether to hire a general contractor:

  • How many trades will be involved? You may be able to oversee the work of one flooring installer. If your project (a bathroom remodel, for example) requires the services of multiple subcontractors, a general contractor can save you money, time and potentially several headaches.

  • What building codes will impact the project? In many cases building codes and permitting may require that projects be done by licensed professionals. In these cases your general contractor can obtain permits that non-professionals cannot. These projects can result in substantial fines should they be attempted without a contractor.

  • What is the duration of the project? The estimated completion time of the project can influence whether or not to hire a general contractor. If the time needed is going to burden yourself or your family it is time to consider a general contractor. The contractor's knowledge of the time required for various trades will allow them to keep things moving smoothly.
