Renovations can be complex and challenging, and many homeowners prefer to leave the planning, preparation, and management of such projects to a professional. A general contractor is a construction professional who manages and oversees all aspects of a building project from start to finish.

To help you out and to give a basic understanding of the value we bring to construction projects, McKeen Construction has formulated a Beginner’s Guide to working with a general contractor. Here we’ll explore the steps you should follow and give you a heads-up on what to expect.

  • Before hiring a general contractor, it’s essential to assess the scope and complexity of your project.

For example, minor renovations may not require a general contractor and can be handled by a single tradesperson or professional, i.e., a plumber, painter, electrician, or drywaller. However, a large-scale construction or renovation project would benefit greatly from the expertise of a general contractor. Projects like a full-size Kitchen renovation, a main-floor, basement, or addition would be a fit for a General Contractor such as McKeen Construction.

  • Once you have determined that your project warrants the services of a general contractor, the next steps are fulfilled by a company like McKeen Construction!
