How to Hire a General Contractor in Concord

When hiring a general contractor in Concord for a remodeling job, there are several factors you have to consider. With such a wide selection of contractors in the marketplace, K2GC understands it can be hard knowing where to start. However, by keeping the following five tips in mind you will be able to narrow down your choices and hire the right contractor who fits your project needs.

5 Ways to Select a General Contractor in Concord   

  1. Conduct Research: Home remodeling is an involved and expensive process that requires proper research. You will need an expense budget as such projects can range greatly in overall cost. You will also need to focus on what features (or results) you want to be addressed by the remodeling project. Lastly, consider what style you want for your project in terms of interior decoration.  
  2. Ask for Referrals: Asking friends and family for referrals can help narrow down your list of contractors to consider hiring. Naturally, you will want to remove any contractor from your list that is reported as doing bad work or is unprofessional. If you don’t have personal referrals you can also use the internet to read customer feedback as such information is readily available on numerous review websites and contractor webpages.   
  3. Interview Multiple Contractors: Before hiring any contractor, interview three to five different contractors to assure you are receiving quality work from a reputable contractor. Ask for referrals, proof of proper insurance (such as workers comp), proof of state licensing, and associated credentials from professional associations such as the National Association of the Remodeling Industry.  
  4. Review Past Customer Feedback: One of the best ways to learn about the quality of work a general contractor in Concord provides is to read feedback from past customers. Websites such as Yelp and the Better Business Bureau can tell you about overall work quality, constructor conduct, is the work completed on time, customer satisfaction, and so on.
  5. Get Everything in Writing: Always get a written contract that contains the following information: cost, acceptable forms of payment, a description of the work itself, a detailed time frame of the work, a charge order clause, steps for dispute settlement, and warranty information. Once the job is finished, be sure to review the work before agreeing to payment terms.
