3 Things to Ask Your General Contractor Before Starting a Project

Question 1

Are you licensed and insured?  This might seem a little formal, but this is the first thing you need to ask.  Also, you need to clarify that their license is current in the city you’re doing work in.  This is also a great time to discuss how they will handle the permitting process.

Question 2

What’s their process for communicating progress?  Go into this question knowing that you want them to lay out a clear plan, including daily meetings and email updates.  If they don’t have a quick and clear answer to this question – THAT’S A RED FLAG!

Question 3

How do you handle change orders?  And this is an important one, you guys!  No matter how decisive you think you are, you will make changes as the project moves forward.  Having a conversation EARLY in the process, to understand how these changes will be approached, is very important.
