Just the Facts: On Contractors and Builders

If you’re a homeowner in the Lewistown area, maybe you are looking to have a new home built on your property. Friends and other homeowners will tell you to contact a general contractor for the job. But what does a general contractor even do?

No one wants to seem uninformed when they’re discussing something as significant as their own home. But it can be difficult to find the right person to ask these questions. That’s why the team at Dan Peterson Construction Inc has decided to answer some common questions about general contractors.

Responsibilities of a General Contractor

First off, you need to ask yourself what you need. Are you removing a wall from your existing home? Do you need your kitchen tiles replaced? These kinds of projects are typically more suited to a handyman, not a general contractor.

That is because a general contractor handles large-scale projects that require many different tasks, such as a house being built from the ground up. They’re a Jack or Jill of all trades in the construction and home building industry. They oversee all matters of residential home building. A contractor and their team, as well as their subcontractors, can do just about anything.

Benefits of Hiring a General Contractor

One of the biggest benefits of hiring a general contractor is that they will be able to oversee your entire project for you. With them at the helm, you will have one single point of contact for all matters of carpentry, construction, and more.

While we can’t speak for all general contractors, the team at Dan Peterson Construction Inc has excellent relationships with industry professionals. This means we’re not just bringing our expertise to every project, we are also bringing all our professional contacts as well. Our relationships with suppliers of construction materials will also ensure that we never get a bad deal on the material needed to get the job done.

Home Builders Vs. General Contractors

There seems to be a lot of confusion in the Lewistown area and beyond about the differences between these two professions. To be brief, home builders focus on the construction of your house. This means they’ll take care of the foundation, walls, floor, ceiling, etc.

Home builders might be skilled builders but might not be familiar with necessary permits. That said, they are often more involved with the designing of the house than most contractors.

A general contractor will subcontract many aspects of the home building project, and then continue to do the same with the remainder of the work. The benefit of a general contractor is that they can oversee the project from start to finish and will have an in-depth knowledge of the necessary licenses and permits for home construction.
