Finding the Right Tampa General Contractor

Finding the Right Tampa General Contractor

It is the Tampa general contractor you pick that will make or break a remodeling project.  Finding the correct general contractor for the job will determine the quality and the expedience of the work completed, and the amount of emotional and financial stress your family will have to deal with.

To make sure you are getting the best work from a Tampa general contractor, here are a few questions to ask potential candidates!

Always listen prospective contractors answer your questions.  Difficulty talking with you now means they will continue to have a difficult job communicating.

Can you provide me with an itemized bid?

Many Tampa general contractors prefer to give you one bottom-line price for your Tampa remodeling project.  The only problem with a single price for your project is that it leaves you in the dark about what they intend to charge for each aspect of the job.

If you receive an itemized bid, it will show the costs for all of the elements of the job, including:

  • Demolition and hauling.
  • Framing and finish carpentry.
  • Plumbing.
  • Electrical.
  • HVAC.
  • Tiling and other floor installation.
  • Lighting fixtures.
  • Drywall installation.

The itemized bid makes it easier for you to compare the bids from each Tampa general contractor.  If you need to cut project expenses, it will also provide you an easy overview of your options.

If a Tampa general contractor resist providing an itemized bid, it is most likely a gigantic red flag!

Can you tell me more about your suppliers?

Tampa general contractors are networked with specific suppliers.  You can learn more about a general contractor’s reliability and level of quality by researching more with the proprietors of:

  • Tampa tile shops.
  • Tampa kitchen and bath showrooms.
  • Lumber yards.

Always try to learn more about a general contractor’s reputation, whether he has left a trail of unhappy customers and suppliers in his wake, if he is paying his bills and whether he is someone you will want to hire.  If the contractor has qualms about providing the information, think twice before hiring this remodeling firm.

How long have you been working as a general contractor in Tampa?

A Tampa general contractor who has been working successfully for at least five years has an established network of subcontractors and suppliers.  He also has a reputation to uphold.  That makes him the safe bet compared to a contractor who is either new or not from the immediate area.

Try to get:

  • Proof of the contractor’s physical address.
  • References from one or two of his earliest clients.

The Tampa general contractor you choose will either make or break your Tampa remodeling project.  Choosing the right contractor for your job will determine the ultimate satisfaction you feel with your new addition or remodeled room.  Contact Rossi Construction, Inc. at 813.436.0177 to set a time for a consultation with our remodeling team!  We look forward to answering your questions!

They were very professional. Quoted us a time frame and they were exact on the time frame. The were very clean as they cleaned up every night. Any questions I had they were very helpful. Overall a great experience. We plan on using them again if we decide to redo our bathrooms. The kitchen came out very nice and we are very happy with it.

This company is great. They did an awesome job on our remodel. The quality of work surpasses everything. All project hiccups were professionally handled and solutions came out better than planned. Jason Rossi and his lead foreman on our job Brian Smith are very professional. Brian provided a wealth of knowledge in regards to our entire first floor remodel project. Brian Smith is trustworthy and the quality of his work is impeccable. Job well done JRossi Construction!!

The work quality was outstanding, the crew friendly and a delight to work with, and they cleaned up after themselves and left the place in great shape! When I remodel my other unit, there is no doubt that Rossi Construction will be doing the work there also. I had an issue with the door quality of the cabinets and Rossi and his crew met with myself, and the Cabinet Representative immediately, and the issue was resolved to My Satisfaction. You can easily tell that Customer Satisfaction is what everyone in the organization is focused on. Great Job and thanks again, Ed.

Rossi just remodeled our hall bathroom and kitchen. They are incredibly skilled craftsmen who use the best products. We had two different men lead each project and they were both wonderfully skilled (cabinetry, tile, hardware installation, electric, plumbing, painting, etc.). They are honest, hardworking, on schedule, clean up after themselves, and fix problems. We highly recommend them.

Rossi Construction just finished renovating our veterinary hospital. The entire process from start to finish was flawless. Jason was the only contractor who looked at our space and was able to get a rough quote to us within 24 hours. Everything ran on schedule and within budget, and the final product was beautiful. Our project supervisor was incredibly knowledgeable and easy to work with. I highly recommend this company to anyone looking for construction work in the Tampa area.

The guys from Rossi do great work. We did a complete remodel of two levels of our house (we have a split level). The work included a full redesign of the master suite (took space from the bedroom to make a bigger bathroom and add a walk-in closet, also changed configuration of some windows), full redesign of main level (kitchen, living, and dining space) that included floating a sunken floor and removing walls to open the space, and cosmetic updates to the rest of the bedrooms (new doors, trim, paint, etc.). Only small issues were due to subcontractors, and Rossi made sure everything was brought up to expectation. We're super happy with the result and would not hesitate to use them on future projects.

I would highly recommend Rossi construction. Jason and his employees were very professional, very conscientious, and definitely went the extra mile to make sure I was happy with the project. If I emailed questions, they were promptly answered. I believe the pricing on the project was very fair. I am recommending them to all my friends. It was a great experience working with this contractor. I would hire them again in a heartbeat.

Overall, the remodel went quite well. The workmanship is very good.The crew was very punctual and professional. I found some minor issues that I pointed out to them, and they resolved them to our satisfaction. They could have done a better job with drop cloths in the hallways. There was a fair amount of joint compound that got tracked around on the carpet, and some of the dirt & debris got ground into the carpet. However, I consider this to be a minor issue, and would definitely consider using them again.
