Tips to Choose Your Commercial Contractor
2. Find Information to The Company’s Reputation
The internet is a valuable resource when it comes to reputation.
With a simple search, you can easily gather information about the contractor’s website, portfolio and any existing customer reviews.
We recommend you also make a point to seek out reviews from more than just the contractor’s websites, as it is not likely that they would share any mishaps or resolution information.
Feel free to ask your contracting prospects for a list of references. From there, you have the opportunity to speak with former clients directly about their experiences with customer service, quality, budget and time frames.
Finally, do not underestimate the power of referrals.
Spend some time reaching out to your direct network for commercial contractor referrals to help narrow down your search. From family and friends to lenders and social networking groups – you’d be surprised by how many people are willing to contribute a positive referral!
3. Consider Your Budget
While cost should never be the primary factor in choosing a commercial contractor, it does play an important role.
Get a clear idea of your overall budget with a full-on breakdown and see how your options check out.
Be wary of bids that seem significantly cheap or low, as this may indicate a lack of project knowledge and a higher risk of mismanagement and avoidable mistakes.
Keep in mind higher quality general construction company with a good reputation will require a higher price tag, take the time to shop around and weigh out your options before making a final decision. Ask yourself; do you want quality? or cheap?
4. First Impression
For the best results, you will want to work with a commercial contractor that is willing and able to effectively communicate.
Schedule a face-to-face meeting and pay close attention to the fine details.
– Is there a synergy between the two of you?
– Does the person get my vision?
– Does this person effectively communicate?
– Does this person seem trustworthy?
To avoid future frustration, you will greatly benefit from working with construction “partner” that makes you feel comfortable, listened-to and well-informed and has the experience.
Take the time to evaluate and compare the relevant experience, reputations, budget and communication styles of your general contracting prospects.
With the right decision, you will have a commercial space that is unique to your brand in no time.
