If you’re a first-time business owner, creating a commercial space can be challenging. Before hiring a commercial building contractor, you need to obtain important information from them. This video explores important questions you need to ask them.
Ask how long they have been in business to ascertain their experience levels. Find out if they have enough experience in handling projects similar to yours. A company specializing in building houses may not have experience in handling office space.
Do they have project managers and sub-contractors to oversee and handle your project? A project manager ensures that the work is of top standard and completed on time. Does the commercial building contractor have their own architects and designers or are they willing to collaborate with yours?
Licenses and Insurance
Ascertain whether your potential contractor is licensed, bonded, and insured. If a contractor does not have any of these, it can leave you exposed to high costs should anything go wrong.
These are just a few of the many questions you need to ask your commercial building contractor before hiring them. Also, obtain references and a written contract, with a breakdown of the costs involved.
