If you are not the type to complete your own construction work, or if it is something you are not remotely qualified for, there are hundreds of reliable construction firms and companies that can assist you in any project you undertake or take over the project completely. Heath Davis Construction is one such company that can meet your many construction needs, but here are some tips in researching a great construction company.
Budget: The first thing to consider when looking for a construction company to handle the job you are trying to complete, is your budget. How much money you have, or are willing, to spend versus how much the project is going to cost makes the biggest difference in this determination. Be upfront with your budget, even before the contractor comes out to review your space and assess the job. Be firm with the amount of money you have to spend, and let the company know, from the outset, that you cannot budge from this space, if you can’t. If you can budge, let that be known as well, but make certain this percentage is also clear. Asking neighbors who they used for similar jobs will also send you in the right price direction. Additionally, do some internet research and find out how much such a job generally costs in your area. Be specific. Email firms and companies before having them come out to your home or business, and keep a list handy.
Knowledgeable: Find a construction company that has all the proper licensing, is a member of the BBB (Better Business Bureau), and has a firm handle on local zoning laws. Failing to present any one of these important aspects of construction work is going to cost you something in the long run. If you find an excellent contractor, who really knows his or her stuff, but they are breaking all the quirky zoning laws in your area, you may be required to pay exorbitant fines or have your project indefinitely halted. Take care of these issues first by making sure that your construction company is up-to-date on what is required for your particular community, and remember, that one section of the city or town might have different laws than another. Make inquiries. Your local township or city website will have most of this information for you.
Referrals: Make sure the construction company you are going with is experienced and comes with recommendations. They should be able to offer you a list of customers who are willing to discuss their past experiences with you. Also, check Angie’s List and YP for a list of reviews and ratings. See what others are saying about them after using their services. Here again, neighbors and friends come in handy. Ask around to see who other people are using, and ask the construction company you are interested in if they have any pictures or online images of the work they have completed in the past. A work portfolio will go a long way in showing you the quality and efficiency of their work.
