Frequently Asked Questions

Finding a General Contractor or remodeling contractor is similar to hiring a new employee for a job. You don’t hire the first applicant for a job at your business, as far as hiring a contractor is concerned. You have to keep in mind the following things:

1) Do the market research.
2) Get recommendations.
3) List the best remodeling contractors in your area.
4) Compare their portfolios.
5) Check the licensing (if require (State of Texas does not have a license for Contractors)) and certification of your contractor.
6) Ask for client testimonials if they aren’t listed on their website.

Normally, GCs or Remodeling Contractors charge as per the project percent. General contractors (GC) typically charge about 10 to 20% of your total construction project cost. For larger projects, you might pay closer to 25% for their services. They do not charge an hourly rate. This is called Cost Plus. GCs will typically charge between 10-30% additional to the Materials and Labor needed to complete your renovation. This additional charge is designed to protect you, the client. GCs work for you to ensure installation is done according to National and Local codes. They are there to protect the Homeowner from getting subpar installation and materials. That additional 10-30% covers admin, marketing, fuel, maintenance, and insurance costs.

The Labor is divided into three categories and cost varies accordingly.

The first employee is the lead. The second is the journeyman. And the third is an apprentice.

The rate for the three works might be:

Lead $50 per hour

Journeyman $25 per hour

Apprentice $15 per hour

These wages are usually standard in the industry. But, they can be adjusted if the rates are different in your area. On larger remodeling projects, there may be 2-3 leads, 5-6 Journeymen, and 4-5 apprentices spread between the multiple trades.

A Remodeling Contractor is the one who manages a complete renovation, or any kind of remodeling project. A general contractor provides a strong background in framing and carpentry along with many other trades to complete a project. He actually performs as a Project Manager, gathering all materials and labor men together to get work done. Whereas Tradesmen are specialized in improvements to an existing building or specific portion of a project.

A Tradesmen would need to hold specialty licenses for every task they personally perform. For example, a kitchen remodel can be performed better when you hire a GC or remodeling contractor. Since a Kitchen remodel encompasses Carpentry, Electrical, Plumbing, Trim, Flooring, and several other Trades, it is best to hire an Experienced GC to ensure this area is completed properly.

A GC/ Remodeling contractor differs from ordinary handymen.  They are specialized in a vast array of skillsets, have licenses and expertise to remodel your project with certainty, experience, and reliability. A contractor makes sure the workmanship has a warranty guarantee. They have good reputation in their community and they take good care of your budget and save time, as well. Handymen usually do smaller tasks such as Hanging ceiling fans, Paint/Sheetrock repairs, minor flooring repairs. These tasks are usually completed in a day or two, whereas a GC will handle a project that takes weeks to several months.

Handymen, also generally work alone or with a single apprentice or helper and do not have the skillset or knowledge to lead and supervise multiple crews along a large array of trades and skills. Handymen, generally don’t keep up with local building and remodeling codes or manufacturer installations and don’t use or read blueprints, shop drawings, or design boards.
