Your general contractor will be your best friend during any home improvement project, whether you need them for siding repairs or home additions. To make the most of their service, though, it’s important for you to maintain great communication with them. Here at Tusing Builders and Roofing Services, we place a pretty high premium on communication. Here’s why.
Understanding and Setting the Schedule
You don’t have to speak to your contractor every single day. Realistically, you’re both busy people who have other commitments and obligations. Still, it’s a good idea to stay in touch every week or so.
This is especially useful for, say, when you have an upcoming remodeling project scheduled. Make sure both of you agree on a regular time and day for discussion. This way, you can settle on certain key points like materials, design and budget.
Clear and Concise Conversations
Remember that this is your home that you are working on. Your contractor will follow what you need, to the best of their abilities. If you have any concerns or suggestions, be sure to tell them. This can help you and your contractor choose the right course of action.
For example, inform them if you want to change the material for your roofing project from vinyl to composite. As long as you are honest and realistic with your intentions, and you make sure you understand each other, your contractor can help.
Remember the Little Things
Your contractor may know the overall project, but little things matter too. Simple details like when you’ll be at home and when you’ll be away are vital to keeping the project stress-free for everybody. Other details include cleaning up after work, total estimates of the budget, possible emergencies and changes, and even privacy for you and your family. Ironing these out by communicating with your contractor can make the process much less disruptive.
