Residential Construction Building Contractor

Obviously you're in a better position if you start with the names of people who have been recommended.  Not only do you have names, but you can look at work that's been completed at your friends or family homes.  It's important to make sure the residential construction building contractor doesn't have any lawsuits filed against their business or complaints registered with the Better Business Bureau or the state Attorney General's office.  You also want to make sure all licenses and insurance are up-to-date.

Since a contractor is responsible for keeping your project on-time and within budget, you want to hire someone who is willing to provide references.  You should check these references thoroughly and ask about how they handled the project finances and their ability to meet deadlines.  You should also ask about the quality of work and their knowledge of construction materials.

Building a house should be an exciting time.  A qualified residential contractor can help you obtain your dream home.  Contractors also complete other jobs such as build outbuildings, decks, garages, workshops and home additions.
