When you have so many home improvement projects to do, it can feel overwhelming. Do you need ten different specialty contractors, or just one really good general contractor that listens to you and what you want and does it? Most homeowners would respond the latter, since they can deal directly with a single contractor to get all of their projects done. The first thing to remember is that you should build a positive working relationship with your contractor.
Of course, you want to be present at the time a contractor visits your home and provides estimates. Some contractors skip around that by telling you that you don't need to be home, especially if all of your projects are outside. However, the best contractors would expect you to be home to ask questions and get answers to your questions.
When you are available for the contractor during the job, he or she is able to tell you if there are some hiccups in the job (e.g., not enough materials, instability of housing structures is present, etc.). Being present during the job allows the contractor to ask you how you want to proceed if something comes up. You get the best possible outcome from the job when you are present to offer your ideas and make decisions as they arise.
The best contractors understand that bad things happen, and they want to offer comfort and support in difficult times. Part of the working relationship is the empathy your contractor offers when concerns about your home come up. Embracing the compassion and empathy offered establishes trust in your working relationship.
Warranties, such as those offered on GAF roofs installed by qualified and certified GAF Master Elite contractors, are a great product. Ask your contractor to explain the warranty options. In this way, you are educating yourself on protecting major structures on your home while building rapport with your contractor.
