Why do I need a General Contractor?

Hiring a general contractor means enlisting a professional or a firm to oversee and manage a construction project from start to finish. General contractors are responsible for coordinating all aspects of the project, including hiring subcontractors, managing schedules, procuring materials, and ensuring that the work is completed according to the specifications, budget, and timeline.

At RCS Builders, every job receives a dedicated General Contractor & Project Manager to ensure the smoothest project possible.

Centralized Management:

Hiring a general contractor means having one main contact person who oversees all aspects of the construction project. For example, instead of communicating separately with the plumber, electrician, and carpenter, you communicate primarily with the general contractor, who then relays information to the relevant parties.

Expertise and Experience:

General contractors bring extensive knowledge and experience in construction practices. For instance, they understand local building codes and regulations, know how to interpret architectural plans, and are familiar with various construction techniques.

Subcontractor Coordination:

When you hire a general contractor, they take care of hiring and managing subcontractors. For example, if your project requires plumbing work, the general contractor will hire a licensed plumber, schedule their work, and ensure they complete it according to specifications.

Budget Management:

A general contractor helps you manage your project’s budget. They provide cost estimates for materials and labor, suggest cost-saving measures, and keep track of expenses to ensure you stay within budget.

Compliance and Permits:

General contractors navigate regulatory requirements and obtain necessary permits for the project. For instance, they may obtain building permits from the local government and ensure that all work complies with zoning regulations and building codes.

Client Satisfaction:

Ultimately, general contractors prioritize client satisfaction. They listen to your needs, address any concerns or questions you may have, and work diligently to deliver a finished project that meets or exceeds your expectations.

Quality Assurance:

General contractors enforce quality standards throughout the project. They inspect workmanship regularly, address any issues promptly, and ensure that all work meets or exceeds industry standards.

Schedule Management:

General contractors create and maintain project schedules. They coordinate tasks such as demolition, framing, and finishing work to ensure the project progresses smoothly and is completed on time.
