FAQ's About Our Construction & Remodeling Services

In the grand scheme of a construction project, it’s not uncommon for GC’s to manage a plethora of tasks – electrical work included.

However, they typically do not perform this work themselves unless they have the specific skills and qualifications required.

Most general contractors will hire licensed electricians to handle electrical installations and repairs.

It’s like how I design the vision of a space but rely on expert artisans to bring specific elements to life.


Hiring a general contractor can be a real game-changer.

They’ve got your back, handling all the nitty-gritty like coordinating with subcontractors and ensuring everything runs on time and within budget.

Think of it like this: someone else handles all the nitty-gritty details, so you can zero in on what really matters – the grand scheme.

Remember, hiring a professional brings peace of mind, which is priceless.

It’s a common misconception that hiring a GC automatically means higher costs.

While you are paying for their services, teams like ours often have access to better pricing from subcontractors, and can purchase materials at a lower cost. This allows us to pass the savings onto you.

Moreover, their know-how in running a project smoothly can actually save you cash down the line by sidestepping pricey errors and hold-ups.

Like electrical work, general contractors usually don’t do plumbing work themselves unless they have the specific qualifications.

They will typically hire a licensed plumber to ensure that all plumbing work meets the necessary codes and standards.

We can definitely oversee roofing work, and we have the skills and license to do it ourselves.

Sometimes, we will hire specialized roofing contractors to ensure that the work is done safely and correctly.

Having an expert take care of such a key element of your house is crucial.

Legally, we’re not allowed to. Plus, we care too much about your property and our reputation to do that.

It’s all about nailing every detail to the code, making sure we don’t just meet safety standards – we exceed them.

It’s like ensuring that all the ingredients in a recipe meet a certain quality standard – it’s essential for the best result.

We get paid in installments, based on the progress of the work.

Payments are often tied to specific milestones in the project timeline.

This payment plan keeps the project in check, directly tying money exchanges to finished work.

The percentage a general contractor makes on a project can vary.

Typically, they might charge a markup on the total cost of labor and materials, which can range from 10% to 20%, or they may charge a flat fee.

The specific rate can depend on the project’s complexity and the local market.

In the world of construction and home renovation, just about anyone planning a significant project might hire a GC.

Homeowners looking to remodel their kitchen or add an extension to their house, business owners planning to renovate their commercial space, or real estate developers constructing new homes or buildings – they all typically need a general contractor.

It’s like when you’re planning a big family gathering; you might be the host, but you’ll need a caterer to handle the food.

Similarly, for any large-scale project, a general contractor is the go-to professional to bring all the pieces together beautifully and efficiently.

We typically manage demolition work as part of larger scale projects.

Some companies might have the expertise and equipment to perform the demolition themselves, while others might bring in a specialty provider for this task.

It’s a bit like clearing out an old garden bed before planting new flowers.

Demolishing existing structures is the first step in making way for something new and beautiful, and a skilled GC ensures it’s done safely and properly, setting the stage for the new construction.

We do so much more than just oversee construction. They are the planners, coordinators, and communicators of your project. From the moment you share your vision, they’re the ones who turn it into a plan, hire and manage the team (like carpenters, electricians, plumbers), order materials, and oversee the day-to-day operations. They’re problem-solvers, often foreseeing and addressing issues before they become real problems. It’s like how I design a space – I have to think about every detail, from the layout to the decor. We have to think about every aspect of the building process, ensuring everything comes together just as beautifully as you imagined.

Yes, we are happy to collaborate on certain projects if the size of the project warrants it.  We recently were able to work on a very large commercial roof cleaning service project with a roofing company in Waco, and a residential community building  project in conjunction with Waco Remodeling Contractors for Houston Carpenters.
