What makes a good general contractor?

Renovation by 4 O.A.K Construction.

Hiring a good general contractor is the best place to start on any major home remodel. A general contractor is a project manager. They assist you with every aspect of the project, from design through construction. A general contractor will hire, schedule and manage all the different sub-trades involved in your renovation. They’ll take care of any unforeseen issues and ensure your renovation stays on schedule and on budget.

4 O.A.K. Construction in Edmonton is a RenovationFind Certified general contractor. They share some qualities that make a general contractor worthy of hiring:

Good experience.

You don’t want your complex home renovation to be a contractor’s very first one! Make sure the contractor you hire has several renovation or home building projects under their belt. They should have experience in every aspect of home renovating and building. This makes them better managers and better trouble-shooters. Experience really counts, so make sure they have enough to be working in your home.

Proven reputation.

A good contractor will have a great reputation in the industry. Get feedback from previous customers on the quality of the work and service they offer. Were they happy with the finished results? How was the service they received throughout the project? Did they deal with negative issues properly? A general contractor with good references, good reviews and a proven track record is one you’ll want on your team.

Honesty and integrity.

This goes back to the proven track record component. A good contractor should do all things with integrity and offer open, honest communication throughout the project. 4 O.A.K. Construction will stand behind their work and all the work they oversee.

Exceptional listeners.

The ability to listen is a valuable skill for a general contractor. You should be able to tell your general contractor exactly what you want. They can provide some professional insight but still do everything they can to help your envisions for the renovation become realities. There are things you might want that are not compliant to building code or not within your budget. 4 O.A.K Construction can suggest alternatives that will still align with the plan, in those instances.
