Know What You Want Before Hiring a Design & Build Contractor


Before hiring a design/build contractor for your building project, you’ll need to determine what you’re looking for and expecting. Ask yourself the following questions:

  • What is my budget?
  • Are there any changes I’d like to make before the design/build team begins construction in order to offset costs?
  • What do I want to remodel or build?
  • What’s the time frame for completing the project?
  • What personal and professional characteristics would I like my design/build contractor to have? (These may include good communication skills, honesty, reliability, cleanliness, etc.)
  • Is the design/build contractor well-established in the community?
  • Does the general contractor have good references that I have checked?
  • Is the design/build contractor charging a reasonable price for quality work?
  • Do I want a Diamond Certified company that’s rated Highest in Quality and Helpful Expertise® and backed by the Diamond Certified Performance Guarantee?
