What is a General Contractor?

A general contractor, often referred to as a GC, is the overseer and coordinator of a construction project. They play a pivotal role in bringing your dream home from concept to reality. Here's what they do:

Project Management: A general contractor takes charge of the entire project. They plan, organize, and oversee every aspect of construction, ensuring it runs smoothly from start to finish.

Subcontractor Coordination: Your GC acts as the intermediary between you and the various subcontractors who perform specialized tasks, such as plumbing, electrical work, or carpentry. They hire, schedule, and supervise these professionals.

Budget Management: GCs manage the project's budget, ensuring that expenses stay within the allocated amount. They provide cost estimates, monitor spending, and make adjustments as needed.

Quality Control: Quality is a priority for GCs. They ensure that all work meets industry standards and your expectations. They inspect, review, and, if necessary, request corrections or improvements.

Timeline Management: Meeting deadlines is crucial. General contractors establish a project timeline and make sure work progresses according to the schedule.

Permit Acquisition: They handle the often complex process of obtaining permits and ensuring the project complies with local building codes and regulations.
