Questions to Ask Every General Contractor!

You have spent hours tearing out pages of home remodeling magazines and getting lost in plans, and finally you have chosen the look you want.  You are ready to remodeling your home, perhaps turning that bathroom into a master bathroom.  Just a single question remains:  Who is going to be your Tampa general contractor?  To assist with the selection, we have put together several questions for you to ask potential contractors and builders.

What type of projects have you completed around Tampa?

Match your job to the right builder.  Some general contractors may be better at new construction, while others are superb at Tampa remodeling projects.  Explore pricing options as well.  A builder who concentrates on huge homes may not be the best choice for a modest Tampa remodeling project with a tight budget.

May I see examples of your completed Tampa remodeling projects?

A good general contractor will be proud of their work, and enjoy showing it to a potential client.  Ask to see photos of completed projects, and choose someone whose work looks similar in style to the job you have been planning.

Are you licensed and insured?

Depending on the location, builders need to have a state issued license in addition to a local business license.  They and their subcontractors also should carry a general liability, and worker’s compensation liability insurance.

How long have you been doing remodeling projects?

While longevity is not a guarantee of quality, it is an indication that the general contractor can run a job and keep clients successfully satisfied.

Who will be my primary contact on the worksite?

Know who your main point of contact will be on the jobsite.  Some general contractors supervise in person; others choose to use superintendents to handle the day-to-day operations.

In your preparation for a Tampa remodeling project, do not hesitate to inform yourself regarding the qualifications of potential general contractors.  The team from Rossi Construction, Inc. would love to have the opportunity to go through our portfolio and qualifications during your review and research phase.  You can call us at 813.436.0177 to schedule an appointment for a consultation.
