Services General Contractors Offer
General residential contractors offer a variety of services, including:
New home construction and home additions
Home restoration, remodeling and renovation
Plumbing, HVAC and electrical work
Decks, patios and porches
Painting and flooring
Window and door installation/replacement
Some may specialize in new builds, while others work exclusively on interior remodels.
When planning several home projects or large-scale projects, working with a general contractor makes sense. The contractor provides material, labor, equipment and essential services. They can also subcontract some projects when they don’t have the right permits or experience to execute them.
Essentially, on large or complicated projects, a general contractor acts as a construction manager and coordinates the whole process.
Hiring a general contractor is different from hiring a handyman. Handymen are only qualified for general repair and maintenance needs.
