Hiring a Contractor
Choosing a contractor
Clients always say they want a job done but look for the best price. What does “best price” actually mean? Clients are told to get 3 estimates before making a decision, how do you know what is the right price? Each contractor will give their best estimate, so how do you choose? Does reputation matter? Does price make a difference? Is the company important? Are previous or current jobs of clients important? I’m sure you can come up with more and they are all very relevant questions.
Hiring the right contractor is actually more about a hunch, a gut feeling. We’re all human beings and when we meet a person we can usually feel if this person is the right person to be in a relationship or a friendship. So, hiring the right contractor is pretty much the same thing. If the contractor/project manager comes to you and makes a good impression, is knowledgeable and explains what is expected of him, this is how many clients choose there contractor. It’s not usually about price. Price can be misleading and you normally don’t get what you pay for. Under bid or over bid is a sign of a contractor/project manager who doesn’t understand the job. Don’t forget the contractor has to make money and if giving you a low price gets him the job so will the materials he uses be affected and he may also put his less qualified guys to do the job. Jobs may take longer then was quoted to you etc… Of course you’d never know till you hire him.
All work provided to our clients is limited only to labor and the raw and rough materials used on the job. We are not responsible for any of the finished materials supplied by the client e.g. Faucets, tile, appliances etc…
Warranties are only limited to the person on the contract and is limited to any defects from labor only from the job performed by our contractors for 1 year. Warranties are not transferrable to other family members, new homeowners or anyone not originally signed to the original contract even if the house is given its siblings or children or any other family member.
When setting up appointments with our company we ask that all homeowners on the property be at the meeting. This is very important if they can’t all be at the meeting we would prefer to reschedule when everyone can be there. Why you ask is this so important? Well, when it specifically comes to kitchens or bathrooms for example, one or both of you may have different ideas about what or how you may want it done. Budget is a big part of this job as well and the estimate will be different based on the type of work you want done. If one person is there, I would hope you would want the other to help may a decision together. It is a waste of both of our times if one or more people are not at the meeting. Most husbands or wives will not and or should not make a decision without the other.
If we are hired for the job and the other decisions makers weren’t at the meeting it would make it for a long job with delays and the price of the job would change drastically. We ask that all decision makers be at the meeting together so we can give you the right estimate and work together to accomplish your job with everyone happy.
The most expensive estimate or the middle estimate has its challenges as well. Don’t choose them till you fully understand what the project manager is telling you what he’s going to do. The middle estimate may end up being more expensive then the more expensive estimate, it’s understanding what each will do, how the job will be done and how qualified the guys being used for the job? Remember the rule “ buyer beware”. Most project managers add there commission to the price he quotes you. This is how he makes his money.
Remember, when hiring a contractor/project manager, he must be registered with the CSLB (Contractors State License Board). A project manager is normally a salesperson and must be finger printed and checked if he has any sort of a criminal record. The project manager must have on there person a card from the CSLB and show it to the client before giving any estimate. If they don’t have a card then they must leave and or be reported to the CSLB and file a complaint against the company that sent them. This is for your protection. CSLB website is www.cslb.ca.gov
