Before mentioning the characteristics of a professional contractor for your renovation, we want to briefly touch on the matter of a construction repair.
Renovation is a collection of activities that can be different in number and different in type, depending on the parameters of your home and your job assignment. There is a big difference between an old and a new home! With the same assignment and project, the cost of repairing an old home will certainly be higher than that of a new apartment, relative to the type and number of construction activities, for a number of reasons - peeled plaster, curved panels, demolition of old tiles (flooring and lining), cracks in walls and ceilings, replacement of old windows, crooked ceiling , different levels of finishes, lack of heat and noise insulation and many others.
Accounting for all the above mentioned and many more issues independent of the parameters of your home, and this is where the role of the GOOD CONTRACTOR and their character traits comes from.
When You Open the Front Door of Your Home, You Will Be Greeted With a Smile
The Contractor comes to you only to present all of their professional experience and capacity for one purpose, namely to offer the best for you - their Valued Client , those who will later recommend the contractor to relatives and friends. One thing is for sure! - You will feel good in his or hers company and will feel a sense of bilateral trust. However, remember that whoever you chose they will occupy your home for a period of time, so they will be more than just a guest in your home.
If You the Unit is Occupied They Will Remove Their Shoes Without Asking
It is superfluous to ask for something that is obligatory for a person who first respects people, not only his clients. Rest assured that the contractor is mainly interested in your comfort, does not want to create unnecessary troubles for you and is certainly not lazy. You will learn all this right from the beginning and you will know what to expect in the future.
The Right Contractors Listens Without Interrupting You
The most important person in your home is you and your ideas and dreams, and it is the contractor who will realize them. Only after you finish presenting your idea can the contractor suggest you adjustments. First of all, the contractor will ask a number of details that you have not yet thought of or paid attention to, but you will certainly learn from them. They they will be solely related to the realization of your idea. Secondly, as contractors we will point out all the flaws from a technical point of view that compromise the quality of performance and your future comfort, inspired solely by technical savvy, yet keep in mind that contractors are not interior designers. General Contractors would interfere with your decisions from an aesthetic point of view only if you asked them, and certainly would not be provocative and extreme in their suggestions. Rather, if he / she feels that you are unsure of your idea of finishing your home, he / she will recommend that you seek an Interior Design specialist or offer you a well-known one with whom he / she has worked and can guarantee his / her professionalism. However this can delay the process of the renovation, because the contractor will wait for you to be completely sure and prepared for your upcoming renovation.
The Quote Contains Many Exact Numbers, Organized in Point Form
Are you one of those people who have received an offer of the sort - bedroom $X for repair, bathroom $XX amount for repair, corridor repair and daily amount, without specifying the activities. The previously illustrated offer model is extremely unclear to you, it is not professional and justified, the person writing the offer certainly has no good intentions. It keeps you in the dark about the activities to come ie. you, by accepting the offer, enter a trap where you do not know what you will pay for and what will pop up. But the offer of a good General Contractor looks quite different. It is prepared so that its financial share is the least significant. The offer is a long list of activities that are sequentially described one after the other and even have comments clarifying their importance and the reason for being listed in the offer. A good contractor is interested in your money working for you and for this purpose divides the offer into two main parts. The first part contains all the activities that are directly related to your assignment and without them, it cannot happen. In Part Two, it includes the activities that are a recommendation by the contractor, backed up by his years of experience. With recommended activities you will get the perfect, finished product, but they will have an upward impact on your budget ie. it will cost you extra money. And for this very reason, the contractor recommends them and does not insist on them. The Contractor will only clarify the meaning and cost, usually how much time will be spent on each project, simply because the right contractor is a professional and is morally obliged to inform you and offer the best for you. In short, you will get more than just an offer. It is a recipe or guide that will enrich your knowledge and clarify the expectations of what lies ahead. You will know exactly what you are paying for and more importantly you will receive a FINAL OFFER from the start and it will be valid until the end of the repair, with no surprises as the project advances.
You Will Have Answer to All Your Questions, Even the Ones You Have Not Asked
Despite the detailed description of the offer, reading it will raise a number of questions that will give you the most detailed answer. In addition, you will receive detailed information about a schedule plan - what to do next. What you need to buy first in view of the deadlines ahead. As a good General Contractor, must know which suppliers have delays in delivery times and what would stall your project in time. That is, your Contractor will also assist you in things that are not directly related, because you cannot predict what you have not encountered and for that purpose he will save you a lot of time, nerves and unpleasant surprises.
