Signs You’re Working With High Quality Building Contractors
When looking for a partner to help you with your next build, it can be hard to narrow down the options to only high-quality building contractors. With so many companies out there, how do you know which ones are reputable? Which ones will do the job right? We can help you understand what to look for. If your potential contractor shows these signs, you’re probably in good hands.
Quality Building Contractors Make A Good First Impression
You can learn a lot about a company from the first phone call, email exchange, or meeting. Did it take weeks to get back to you? Were they late to your meeting? At Dunlap, we focus on being responsive in a timely manner to all inquiries because we value your time as much as ours. Timeliness and responsiveness are good signs that your contractor has the right time management skills to keep your project on track. Plus, it shows that they respect and value you as a client.
They Have The Proper Credentials
Stay far away from uninsured or underinsured contractors, even if they give you the budget quote you want. Any good contractor will have proper licensing and be bonded and insured for the work they are offering. Make sure you see a work portfolio as well, so you can get an idea of how much experience they have in the type of building you need (residential, commercial, medical, etc). You should also ask for references, so you hear about other clients’ experiences. When you meet with us, we are happy to answer any questions about our qualifications and references because we know how important it is!
They Have Good Vendor And Subcontractor Relationships
When you’ve been in business as long as we have, you are able to create a wide network of working relationships with vendors and subcontractors. This is a huge advantage to our clients! Our vendor relationships allow us to source hard-to-find materials and get the best prices. Be wary of any company that seems disconnected from what’s happening on the job site or has a lot of turnover in their subcontractors. We vet everyone involved in a project and stand by the work they do.
If you’re ready to get started on a project, set up a meeting with us! We are more than happy to sit down with you and discuss your ideas and how we can help. Contact us today.
