Hiring a commercial contractor is a big decision that should be carefully researched.
When hiring a commercial general contractor for your new business, we
often think we can simply enter “commercial contractor” into Google and
select the first company we speak to. But, hiring a commercial
contractor is a big decision that should be carefully researched. If
made too hastily, there could be costly consequences such as project
delays or inferior workmanship. But, with the helpful tips below, you
can find the right contractor for your job, whether it’s building a new
restaurant, adding an addition to a hospital or updating an office
- Before you start searching for commercial contractors, create a project plan.
Be a specific as possible with what you want designed and constructed.
Completing this step first will save you time in the future and will
ensure you are hiring the right contractor for the job you need
- Ask for recommendations from other business owners you
know and trust. While searching online for commercial contractors in
your area is a good idea, asking people you trust for recommendations is
even better. They will often give you honest feedback of their
experience including both pros and cons.
- Look for a well-established company. How long have
they been in business? Do they have a physical address or is it just a
PO Box? Do they have a professional-looking website? Answering these
questions will help determine the stability of the company.
- Review websites of commercial contractors. You can
learn a lot about a company from its website. Look for websites with
photos of completed projects, company contact information, and customer
- Hire those who are licensed and insured. Interview
prospective commercial contractors and ask if they are licensed in your
state and insured. It’s an added bonus if they are affiliated with a
national trade association.
- Seek experience for your particular project. It’s
helpful to work with and hire a commercial contractor who has expertise
in the project you’re requesting. For example, don’t hire someone who
only works on restaurants to develop the new city hospital.
- Ask for estimates from at least 3 companies. Provide
each company with your plan from step 1. This will help to make your
comparison more consistent, apples to apples. Consider the total price,
cost and type of materials, time to complete the project, and number of
people involved for each estimate. Remember: the cheapest option isn’t
always the best. If a price seems too good to be true, it just might be.
At the end of the day, consider a commercial contractor who is fairly
priced, has good recommendations from previous clients and a work ethic
that stands above the rest, and you won’t be disappointed.
