Choosing a General Contractor w/Ramona Mauser

If you don’t know where to start when it comes to selecting a G.C. ask your designer! We all have contractors we’ve been working with for years with proven track records. If you’d rather forge out on your own consider the following while going through the vetting process:

  • Look for someone who is well established in the community and has been around for a long time.
  • Look for their BBB rating and someone who can provide references…then CHECK THOSE REFERENCES!
  • Look at their portfolio or website to see a gallery of their work.
  • Make sure you’re dealing with someone who can handle the scope of work you’re looking for. You want your G.C. to handle ALL aspects of the job and not leave you having to hire or manage some of the other sub trades.

Do your homework and ask a lot of questions. There are a ton of resources available, ensuring you walk into that initial meeting confident and secure in your choice.
