Although most homeowners are familiar with the hiring process for construction contractors, few people have had a need for commercial general contractors. Should the situation arise that a commercial contractor is needed, there are a few nuances to consider concerning building or improving a commercial building which may be different than hiring a residential contractor for home repairs.
The Interview: Explaining Expectations and Accepting a Bid
Much like hiring a residential builder, finding a commercial contractor begins with an interview. The contractor has the opportunity to present their work history with pictures along with references to confirm the work they conducted, and place a bid for the job. The bid should include detailed instructions of how change orders will be conducted and paid for. Further, this is the opportunity for the contractor to show proof they have enough insurance and the proper license to conduct the job.
Just like with a residential contractor, it is important after the initial interview to confirm the previous work commercial contractors claim. If possible, a scheduled tour of their previous work is ideal to assure the quality is up to expectation. Additionally, previous clients who hired the contractor should be interviewed to assure the contractor was professional and remained on schedule throughout the project.
