Are you in the process of interviewing general contractors for your next restaurant construction or commercial building project? With so many options in the Baltimore, Washington DC, and Northern Virginia area, it’s important to choose the right candidate. Read on to discover five questions to ask the potential candidates.
Are You Licensed to work in Washington, DC?
Standards vary state by state, and general contractors need the appropriate licenses and certifications to complete a job in Washington, DC. Is their team insured and protected against potential mishaps and hazards?
What is Your Policy Regarding On-Site Supervision and Subcontractors?
If the general contractor plans to hire subcontractors to complete the job, who will be in charge of supervising the project? Who will be completing the labor portion of the job? Does the contractor have their own team? It’s important to talk about these issues beforehand in case problems arise after the job has already begun.
Can You Provide a Timeline for Completion?
Encore Construction recently completed an interior renovation project on an accelerated schedule in just three weeks. Ask your general contractor candidates if they can provide you with a project timeline and if they can meet a proposed deadline. If the team isn’t able to offer a timeline, it’s better to go with a contractor that can.
