Your Home Project May Require the Work Of a New York General Contractor


If you have a major home remodeling, addition, or new build you will want consider the services of an experienced general contractor in NYC. Whether you need a building contractor, or a home improvement contractor you should know how the General Contractor will work with you. This includes managing and hiring subcontractors, pulling building permits on your behalf, and keeping your project on time and on budget.

Any New Yorker thinking of remodeling their home or office space, you may be wondering whether or not they should use a residential contractor to help them in the process. In our opinion, for a project of any reasonable size, it is essential to hire a good designer, architect and building contractor to plan and execute the project.

Most people understand that the planning stage is relatively inexpensive and do not hesitate to engage someone to help them but often balk at the hiring of a home remodeling contractor. Here are just a few reasons to ignore the impulse and hire a home contractor:

A licensed general contractor offers a lot of value

In the New York area, residential contracting companies – also known as GCs –- are typically used to oversee most home and office remodeling projects. More specifically, the GC is given a set of finalized plans and then asked to turn them into reality. With this responsibility come a number of specific duties. Namely, a licensed GC will not only order the materials and supplies needed at the outset but also hire the subcontractors who will do the actual work. In addition, they will arrange for and making the scheduled payments to both of these vendors and subcontractors. Finally, the GC will interact with the local building authorities to ensure that all of the work is properly permitted and inspected.

Another important aspect of the home contractor’s role is to act as an intermediary between the project owner and the subcontractors. This interaction mostly takes place at two primary times – when the project owner decides that he does not like the quality of some portion of the work and when he decides to make a change.

The owner will simply make their concerns known to the contractor who will then coordinate any fixes or changes. One caveat – the homeowner should be cautious at this stage as authorized change orders are the bane of remodeling projects and can significantly add to their cost as well as delay the completion date.

A building contractor will oversee the whole project


As soon as the project owner makes their aesthetic decisions about such things as layout, colors and materials will be used, the building contractor will take over control of the actual construction portion of the project.

First, they will develop a budget and once that is established, they will order all the supplies needed for the job, hire the relevant subcontractors and coordinate all the deliveries and work schedules.

In addition, the home contractor will also facilitate payments to both the vendors and the subs. Of course, the homeowner will have to make scheduled payments to the GC – usually when predetermined “milestones” are met – but after that the GC handles the details.

Finally, near the completion of the project, the residential contractor will perform a walkthrough n with homeowner. A “punch list” – that is, an itemization of all the minor problems associated with the project – is created. It is the responsibility of building contractor to have the subcontractors resolve these issues before the final payment is made by the home owner.

Afterwards, the best New York area contractors will follow-up on the completed project in two or three weeks to ensure that the homeowner is completely satisfied with the work.

Licensed contractors are reliable


Finding a reputable residential contractor may seem like a daunting task. Most people just ask their neighbors or relations and hope for the best. Investing a little more time and effort into the process though can pay some large dividends in terms of both the final cost and aggravation. Here are a few things that a homeowner should check before making their final decision on which general contractor to use:

Better Business Bureau rating
Reputation with the local Chamber of Commerce
State licensing
Insurance papers
Local references

New York state is fairly stringent on its regulation of licensed contractors so it should only take only takes a few phone calls to verify the first items on this list. The local references will take a little more effort, however. If possible, try to visit the previous job site and determine for yourself whether you would be satisfied with the work.

In any event, the small amount of time – usually an hour or less – spent verifying these credentials will give the homeowner a far better sense of the general contractor they are hiring and how reliable and competent they are.
