When you embark on a new construction, addition or renovation project, there is a lot at stake—budget, schedule, productivity, and a host of other concerns. So, how do you choose the right contractor—one who can understand your company’s needs, can work within your budget, meet your deadlines, work as a team player and provide solutions and innovations along the way? Avoid these common traits of bad contractors: Lack of Communication and Reachability If a contractor doesn’t return your initial phone calls or emails, keep looking. You want a reputable company that stays in constant communication throughout all aspects of your project. The best contractors will be open and always striving to keep their clients informed.
