Residential General Contractors In Your Area

  • Kozan Construction, LLC

    "Excellent experience and superb work. We hired them to do a major bathroom project. Price was very reasonable, helped with planning, started right away, and put in the extra hours to see that the job was done right. We would hire them again without a doubt. Thanks again!"

    Creative Energy Of Virginia

    "Very good experience in dealing with Creative Energy. They gave an excellent price to begin with so I didn't have to negotiate pricing and they also provided helpful insight in drawing up an excellent design. Work was meticulous, they cleaned up well after completing the project. The only issue I had was the project extended well into 3 months, wish it could have completed sooner so that I could have enjoyed the deck that summer it was built. Other than that I would definitely recommend then for any future projects. "

    Parker Contracting, Inc.

    "Was very patient with the process of multiple design iterations for my basement finishing project. Their bid was very low compared to other bidding contractors and they did the job at a high quality level. Additional requirements crept in throughout the project and their teams adjusted and adapted as necessary. Even with the additional costs associated with on-the fly changes, the total cost of the project was still lower than the next lowest bidder (and I am certain the other bidders would have gone higher with the changes as well)."

    JJ&K Custom Remodeling and Paint

    "Overall good, but you need to be VERY specific about what is to be done, and get it in writing.. For example, the contract stated "new baseboards". I assumed that meant the old ones would be removed - nope.. (Actually, once it was discussed they did agree to do it correctly). Seemed like we had to constantly pick on lots of the little details to get things done right, but overall it was a good experience.."

    An Construction Company, Inc.

    "I was very pleased with the work An Construction did on our bathroom. Han was very easy to work with and did a professional job. They cleaned up after themselves each day (except the tile guys were a little messy), were friendly and kept their appointments (again, except the tile guys). I would highly recommend them to anyone wanting similar work performed. "

For remodeling and other large-scale home projects, hiring a general contractor can make the difference between a chaotic and stressful waste of time and a hassle-free experience. They are a "jack of all trades" who make sure a job is completed on-time and within budget. They hire and manage subcontractors, pull permits, buy materials, and handle issues related to liability and warranties.

While it's important to get quotes from at least 3 contractors before hiring anyone and to watch out for warning signs (for example, if they request the entire payment upfront), it can be equally as important to make sure they are nearby. Contractors in your area can negotiate better prices for materials and labor, can source local materials, and typically know your area's code requirements.

When you start to interview candidates, here are some questions you should ask:

  • Are you licensed and do you have general liability and workman's compensation insurance?
  • Do you have client references, industry certifications, and have there been any legal suits against your company?
  • How long have you been in business and do you guarantee your work?
  • What is the structure of the payment agreements?
  • Can you describe and compare my project to others you have completed and what challenges may arise?
