What Is a General Contractor?


General, or construction contractors, are often known as project managers. They oversee the entire remodeling or new home construction project and facilitate all day-to-day tasks that move it toward completion. A general building contractor will work with your architect to review plan as you build a house and ensure everything is in place before work is started, as well as arrange for permits and necessary inspections. While good local home improvement contractors will have the skills to handle certain tasks onsite, such as carpentry, he or she is also responsible for hiring subcontractors for the majority of jobs, such as electrical work, painting or plumbing. In addition, the general contractor should be on-site regularly to inspect the progress and resolve issues.
