General contractors in the commercial construction industry provide a wide variety of services. These services include turnkey projects, new construction, interior fit-outs, site improvements and renovations. On occasion, a general contractor even takes over a project that’s already underway.
How long have you been doing business?
A contractor who’s been plying his trade locally for five or 10 years has an established network of subcontractors and suppliers and a solid reputation to uphold. That makes them a safe bet.
Are you licensed ?
Among the many questions to ask a general contractor, this is the big one. Licensing is an important aspect of many industries, and construction is no exception.
What is an expected timeline for this project?
It’s important for you to have a clear picture of when the contractor will begin and end work on your project, especially if you have a deadline in mind.
