What General Contractors Do
Is a General Contractor Just Someone Who Manages a Team of Subcontractors?
Well, not in our case. At Box Construction, most of our team is comprised of a full-time staff of expert craftsmen who excel in home renovations. In a nutshell, general contractors are responsible for overseeing and completing large-scale house renovations. It is the major job of this person, team, or organization to engage in a contract with a property owner and to monitor the project. All vendors and subcontractors must be managed by a general contractor on a daily basis; he or she is the principal point of contact for all parties engaged in a building project. In most cases, and always in ours, contractors must be licensed by their state and must guarantee that the work they perform complies with local and state building codes.
Is your kitchen in need of a makeover? What about a new bathroom? To get your project off the ground, you’ll need some assistance. Whether it’s a kitchen renovation or bathroom remodeling or whole room addition, we’re the perfect contractor’s team waiting to serve you.
At Box Construction, we are a full-service construction company specializing in home renovations, room additions, and kitchen & bathroom remodeling. We have a team of expert craftsmen who are dedicated to providing our clients with the highest quality workmanship and customer service.
When it comes to home renovations, there is simply no one better prepared to make your dreams into lifelong memories in your home.
It’s possible that some smaller projects don’t necessitate hiring a general contractor, but anything more complicated will. A general contractor is responsible for the coordination and execution of a construction project, from start to finish.
If you’re not familiar with the construction and remodeling process, it can be difficult to know what needs to be done and when. This is where a general contractor comes in. He or she will develop a construction schedule and coordinate all the necessary steps and obtain all the required permits to complete the project, including hiring and supervising any needed subcontractors. Outside our team, we work with a trusted shortlist of vendors for specialties we may not cover but you will enjoy the same smooth process with our skilled team present at all times.
In short, general contractors are responsible for making sure that your construction project is completed on time, within budget, and to your specifications.
Hiring a general contractor is an important decision. Not only will he or she be responsible for overseeing the construction and remodeling of your home, but also for ensuring that the quality of work is always up to par.
One of the first things a general contractor will do is pull the necessary permits for your project. This step is important, as it ensures that your project meets all the local building codes and regulations. You never need to worry about whether or not Box Construction is following the law- we will always ensure that all needed permits are fully provisioned and inspections passed with flying colors!
Home remodeling contractors who are licensed and qualified to pull permits are vital, and of course, we take care of everything regarding permits.
So that you’re informed of the project and permit timeframes, you’ll need frequent communication with your remodeling general contractor. Box Construction maintains full communication with you at all times as we make your dream into reality.
While obtaining a permit on your own might be difficult, with us it’s considerably easier to secure the permits we need because we’re already familiar with what’s required in every area of expertise.
We expedite the entire renovation or building process and all permits are taken care of, so you don’t have to worry about the intricacies of obtaining each one separately.
Creating A Budget
After the permits have been obtained, your contractor, Box Construction Inc. will work with you to develop a budget for the project. This budget will take into account the cost of materials, labor, and any other associated expenses. Once you’ve approved the budget, we’ll get to work on making your vision a reality.
Once our team is on-site, we’ll take care of everything else. You can rest assured knowing that your project is in good hands. We’ll keep you updated throughout the construction process and address any concerns you may have along the way.
Creating a Schedule
After the permits have been pulled, the general contractor will create a construction schedule. This schedule will outline all the steps necessary to complete the project, as well as when each step needs to be completed.
The construction schedule will take into account the lead times of materials, the availability of subcontractors, and other important factors.
Once the schedule is created, the general contractor will coordinate with all the different subcontractors to ensure that everyone is on the same page.
Subcontractors And Our Team
At Box Construction, we have a full-time, in-house team of expert craftsmen who are dedicated to their trade. We only work with the best in the business to ensure that your project is built to last.
Some of the most common specialties that are either on the team or brought in as trusted and tried subcontractors include electricians, plumbers, roofers, and HVAC technicians. Depending on the scope of your project, we may need to involve additional subcontractors.
We will be responsible for hiring these subcontractors, which are usually trusted vendors we have worked with repeatedly, as well as ensuring that they complete their work on time and within budget.
Depending on the scope of your project, we may also need to hire painters, drywallers, and flooring specialists.
