Hiring a Contractor or company
When planning to build your dream home it may be difficult to hire a
good contractor. A successful house construction depends on good
contractor. Hire a best contractor otherwise, it may end up the contract
before completion of work or may result a poor construction. Before
hiring a contractor, do some research about the contractor; know about
his skills and experience. Before hiring a contractor you should ensure
several attributes in your contractor.
- A building contractor should have record of building quality homes.
First, evaluate the quality of contractors work by visiting the
completed homes. Evaluate the projects which are completed recently as
well as that were completed several years earlier. Running projects
should also be evaluated. That can help you to know about the quality of
work and material. While evaluating the earlier projects, ask about the
quality of construction and homeowner’s experience with the contractor.
- Make sure about the contractors good behavior, quality work and
construction work should be completed on scheduled time. Some times
contractor use low quality material for construction and employ
unskilled person for work. That may cause a poor construction and delay
in completion of house.
- Make sure the contractor has all necessary insurance coverage-
surety bond. Also verify the history of complaints with state regulatory
agency to check the record of contractor’s complaint. So hire a
licensed building contractor and do not forget to check his license.
- You should also conduct an interview of contractor. Ask him some key
questions about subcontractor, labor rate, building material, scheduled
completion time etc. Make sure that the contractor has built a home
similar to yours. Contractor should also have references from material
- Contact at least three to four contractors and take quotation form
them. Compare their price, work quality and completion time. If you are
hiring a contractor who have lowest price for construction work, check
his work quality. A contractor having lowest price may use low quality
material, unskilled labor or may cause delay in work.
- Hire a contractor whose office is near your construction site. Such
contractor is easily available every time. He is also aware about the
problems of labor, material quality etc. He can provide extra labor in
emergency and in accidental case. He can pay more attention to the work
because he is available here most of the time. If the contractor is
from the nearest area it is also easy to know about the skills, behavior
and work quality of the contractor.
- Enquire from the suppliers to verify contractor credit or market
reputation. Verify that contractor have credit account setup with
building material supplier. If he does not have it, there can be reason
for that. May be that supplier have financial problem or it may be that
he has been just started out.
- Make sure you have signed a contract with the contractor: After
collecting quotation from two or three contractor, evaluate their rate,
estimated time, quality of work and their construction skills and then
decide which one is better. Make sure that a written contract should be
signed by contractor. Sign a detailed agreement of each work. Avoid
verbal agreement, each and every condition should be specified in
- Detailed contract: While making an agreement, some detailed
specifications, work schedule and payment schedule should be written in
it. Specifications of material, brand of material should also be
specified in contract that may provide quality work. Before signing
contract, understand all the terms and conditions of contract.
To know more about terms and conditions of contract
Through rate contract - terms and conditions
- Payment Schedule: Fix the payment schedule otherwise it may cause
delay in work. Pay him according to the terms and conditions of
agreement. Before paying him make sure that the scheduled work is
Never pay more as a down payment. Keep check on quality and quantity
and pay according to the scheduled payment. Know that no one else is
looking out for you, so double check your contractor of choice. ;
