When working with a general contractor, there are 3 important things to keep in mind to ensure your project is a success:
1- Establish Good Communication
When working with a contractor, establish how you will communicate about the job. How and when they will answer your questions, for example:
- Speak with your contractor weekly to check on progress
- Approve or Change items during weekly meetings
By establishing clear channels of communication and a regular schedule for checking on progress, you can be sure your project will stay on deadline and on budget.
2-Track All Changes
Any good general contractor will be able to handle job changes, such as running into structural issues or communicating when additional work is needed as the project evolves, so be sure to keep track of the project timeline and progress. You can also jot down questions you have about the project, which will help you to feel more connected to and involved with the progress of the job.
3-Be Clear About Budget
It’s acceptable to speak to your contractor regularly about your budget; don’t be afraid to be clear and up front with what you can afford. Knowing your budget lets your contractor know where you stand with regards to your overall plan and then work within the framework of the price.
The more your contractor knows about your budget, timeline and expectations, the more satisfied you will be with the end product.
