Remodeling any part of your home can be an extensive project, from planning which parts you want remodeled to determining the budget and figuring out the best way to do it all. It’s a lot to do on your own, especially if you’re new to DIY projects. That’s why we at Premier Remodeling often recommend hiring a general contractor like us to manage the remodeling project instead.

Do You Need to Hire a General Contractor for Your Remodeling Project?

Here are a few considerations to keep in mind to help you determine whether you might need a general contractor for your remodeling project.

  • Do you have the necessary skills? This is one of the most important points to consider when deciding if you should hire a general contractor. While there is a vast amount of DIY videos and articles to be found on the internet, this is not the same as having the actual skill set to effectively complete the tasks needed for your remodeling project. A general contractor, on the other hand, will have the right skill set and can employ subcontractors and laborers on your behalf to get the job done correctly.
  • Are you familiar with building codes and regulations? There are many building codes and regulations to consider when it comes to remodeling your home, and you will need to obtain the necessary permits to begin your work to avoid any violations. While you might be familiar with all the regulations, a general contractor will know just what permits to obtain and how to comply with all the regulations and building codes for your area.
  • Can you keep track of everything? There are a lot of moving parts involved in a remodeling project, and it can be difficult to keep track of everything on your own. A general contractor can keep track of the schedule, budget, inventory, and payments to the subcontractors. They will also keep you updated throughout the project.
