What Will An Atlanta General Contractor Do For You?


What is a General Contractor?

Without a doubt, homeowners who are considering the remodel of their current Atlanta home should consider availing themselves of the advice of design and construction professionals. Not only will their combined expertise and experience lead to a better finished project but will also most likely save the homeowner a significant amount of money.

Finding the aesthetically-minded half of this duo designer/contractor never seems to be an issue but finding the right home contractor usually seems to present a problem. Perhaps, it is because most people do not know exactly what a general contractor does. Here is a solution to that problem – a quick rundown on what you to know about GCs:

General contractors – GCs for short – will oversee a remodeling project so that the homeowner can attend to other personal and professional duties. The GC does not do any of the actual work himself but instead procures the services of various subcontractors – carpenters, plumbers, electricians or whoever else is required – to complete the actual work. In short, they take the plans provided by the designer or architect and turn them into reality.

In particular, GCs take on a number of particular duties. To start, they will determine which trades are need for the project, establish a schedule for when they will work and also be responsible for paying them. In addition, the GC serves as the initial level of quality control. To this end, they ensure that the work meets the requirements of the local building authority as well as the quality standards of the homeowner

Finally, the GC acts as a intermediary between the home owner and the workers. If the homeowner identifies any problems with the work or wishes to make a change, the GC will communicate the information – in both directions. Substandard work must be redone at the subcontractors expense but change orders can increase the cost of the project to the homeowner.

It is also the responsibility of the GC to collect funds as they become due from the homeowner and then distribute them to the subcontracting companies.

First Steps in the Remodeling Process


The first step in the remodeling process is for the homeowner to decide on the specific details of the project – including the layout, the finishes and the color scheme. Once these choices have been incorporated into the plans by the designer or architect and given final approval by the homeowner, the GC will take over.

He will have to get the proper permits from the building department, order the materials and schedule their deliveries. In addition, he will coordinate the activities of the subcontractors. This task is especially important when the different subs will have to work on multiple occasions and each is dependent on the other to get their work done on time.

At various points in the project, the GC will perform a walkthrough with the owner. It is at these times that the project owner should thoroughly inspect the work and voice any concerns. On the final walkthrough, a “punch list” will be created. This list will include any defects that need to be corrected before final payment is made.

It is in the homeowner’s best interest to pay careful attention at this time because in a technical – read that as “legal” – sense, any overlooked problems will no longer be the fault of the GC. On a more positive note, the best general contracting companies will follow-up with a client after two to three weeks to see if everything is satisfactory and will usually come to a reasonable accommodation with the owner if more work needs to be done.

What to look for


The first thing to look for in a GC is professionalism. Their’s is a serious business and deserves to be treated as such. Timeliness, organization and accuracy are paramount. If they cannot accomplish this task while simply bidding on a project, how are they going to do so when the real work begins?

The best GCs will arrive promptly on time, be properly prepared with all of their paperwork and follow-up on their bid in a timely manner. As a potential client, you should settle for nothing less.

Once you settle on which GC you will use, it is essential to check their credentials. Not only should you check with the local references that they provide but also inquire about their licensing, bonding and insurance. A call to the Fulton County Better Business Bureau also does no harm. These is common sense advice but some that many consumers fail to heed.
