Need a General Contractor Bay Area? Ask These Questions

by Proforma Construction Inc, January 28, 2016

You need to choose the right general contractor Bay Area, so you should ask these questions.

When you have a commercial construction project that you need completed, you’ll need to choose a general contractor. This individual or organization will enter into a contract with you to complete your project according to the bid you’ve accepted. That means that you need to be able to trust your general contractor to complete your construction on par with your expectations, on budget, and on time.

It’s no surprise, then, that the success of your project is significantly impacted by the general contractor you choose. To help you distinguish the best general contractor Bay Area, ask your potential contractors these questions.

  • What other, similar jobs have you completed? Can you show us photos? Can you connect us with those project owners?
  • How much do you anticipate charging per square foot for this type of job?
  • What work will you have your own staff complete, and what work will you hire subcontractors to handle?
  • Once construction gets underway, who will be supervising the jobsite? Can we meet with that person?
  • What’s the greatest strength of your general contracting company?
  • What are your specialties? Do you have any experience in ____ (fill in the blank with your specific needs, like energy efficiency, historical renovation, etc.)?
  • What’s your favored working method? Do you prefer cost-plus, negotiated price, or competitive bid?
