When to Hire a Residential Contractor

As the experts at Home Advisor know, “Many people do not realize that the average kitchen remodel takes 5-6 weeks to complete. Not to mention that to complete the remodel you are likely to need an electrician, a plumber, a countertop contractor, a cabinet contractor, a flooring pro, a painter, and someone to install the appliances. That’s a lot of people.”

If you are thinking of acting as your own contractor – whether it’s on a room addition, bathroom remodeling job or kitchen remodeling in Pompano Beach, FL – just know that you are going to have to schedule (and probably reschedule) all of these folks.

According to Home Advisor, “The brilliance of a residential general contractor is that he can not only coordinate all of these other professionals and schedule them so that one person is not in another’s way, but he also knows what a good price is on their labor charge and how to do some of the work himself, whereas the average homeowner will not.”

When should you hire a general contractor? Home Advisor offers some basic rules to follow:

  • If the job is going to take more than a week, hire a GC.
  • If the job requires several different pros to complete, hire a GC.
  • If the job requires a few permits, hire a GC.
