What Is a General Contractor?
Seattle general contractors are responsible for coordinating and supervising a construction or remodeling project, whether you are constructing a new building or doing a simple bathroom model. They secure the necessary, proper permits for your project; hire subcontractors such as carpenters, electricians, and plumbers; create a schedule and work with other team members to make sure that the work is done well, safely, and finished on time. General contractors are responsible for ensuring that the work is done so that it will not void product warranties or guarantees for their clients, must be licensed, and must carry both Workers’ Compensation and liability insurance.
Like a project manager, they must have a wide knowledge base and have experience in the construction field. If a roof, window, or major appliance is installed so that the manufacturer could refuse to honor their guarantee or warranty, then that is a sign that the general contractor did not follow the manufacturer’s guidelines and could result in the client suffering financial losses.
What is the difference between a general contractor and a project manager?
Although many people outside of the construction industry conflate the responsibilities of project managers and general contractors in Seattle, they both play different roles in a construction project. In short, a general contractor works on the physical construction of a project. In contrast, a project manager oversees the construction or remodeling project, starting with the initial meeting with the client, selecting the firms to complete the project, and ensuring that the work gets completed according to the agreed-upon timeline and within budget.
By providing oversight and coordination to a Seattle remodeling project, a project manager is better positioned to identify areas of risk or potential problems and then find solutions to those issues without affecting your timeline or budget.
Project managers in Seattle, WA must have extensive knowledge of all aspects of construction services and have excellent communication skills. The project manager’s primary responsibility includes communicating between the client and the general contractor or subcontractors so that the client’s goals are met. Once a strategic plan has been developed between the client and the project manager, they must then build and manage the various teams working on the construction site. A great project manager has established connections to top firms in the Seattle area from their years of working in the construction industry.
Are you looking to build your custom home or update your existing home so that you have more space, updated appliances, and a better layout? Is there a room you want to remodel or add? Then Home Care Contractors can help you with your next project. We specialize in bathroom, kitchen, basement, and backyard decking construction and remodels. Home remodeling projects can increase the value of your home or turn it into a place you love to live in.
Kitchen remodels can include replacing your flooring, updating your cabinets, and changing the layout of your kitchen to conform to the more flexible “triangle rule” where the sink, refrigerator, and oven form a triangle. Open shelves make a smaller kitchen feel larger, and updating your appliances can improve your cooking and baking experience.
Decades ago, bathrooms weren’t a big selling point when real estate agents showed homes, so many Seattle homes have small bathrooms. A common reason Seattle homeowners need a general contractor is that they want to expand a bathroom. We can take space from an adjacent room to add a shower or tub or larger countertop to an existing, small bathroom. We use a crew of knowledgeable and experienced plumbers and electricians to complete your dream bathroom down to the last details.
