When committing to a construction project, you may be tempted to find the cheapest option without thinking about the quality of your project. Especially when you are dealing with commercial construction and a project that is expensive by its very nature, you may decide to choose an option that allows you to forgo worrying about cost. However, this can be detrimental to your project. Not only can this result in wear and decay much quicker than expected, but it can also create huge unexpected costs. Contact McKee Construction Co. in Sanford, Florida, an experienced licensed general contractor, for information and pricing.
The benefits of a licensed general contractor
Hiring a licensed general contractor may be a more expensive enterprise than hiring an amateur but there are so many risks associated with hiring someone who is inexperienced. Hiring someone who has been in the business for years and has the type of connections they need to make deals happen can not only save you from additional costs in the present, but in the future as well. Especially with commercial construction, it is important to have someone who understands what permits are needed and what guidelines need to be followed so you can avoid fines and rebuilding costs later on.
McKee Construction Co. has decades in the business and can not only give you the guidance you need to make your construction project perfect but they also have the knowledge to give you the peace of mind when you commit to construction.
What can happen when you hire an amateur
Amateur contractors can ask for too much money upfront and can begin work on your construction project without making you sign a contract. While this may seem like eagerness to work on their part, this can actually be poor planning and if they do something that you don’t like or that you didn’t agree on and they ask you for more money, you cannot point to a contract to show that they are in the wrong. This can lead to a whole slew of legal issues. For this reason, you want a licensed general contractor that clearly lays out the terms of your project in the contract and makes you sign the contract before they begin work.
Amateurs may also not have the resources in place to provide you with the highest quality and the lowest prices. They do not have the connections within their community to be able to provide you with deals on materials and therefore may charge more for a much shoddier job.
They may also be unfamiliar with the laws and regulations of your area and may not know which permits you need to have in order to follow through with construction. This means that when the time comes for an inspection later on you may be left in a wake of fines and rebuilding. This will ultimately be much more costly and difficult to deal with.
