If you think it’s expensive to hire a professional, wait until you hire an amateur.
At Debowsky Design Group, we’ve seen what happens when good homeowners hire bad contractors. It’s not uncommon. We’ve all heard the horror stories of clients’ projects extending long past the promised date of completion, over budget and with low-quality results and innumerable mishaps along the way.
What’s could be worse? Well, being ghosted by your GC.
Many homeowners are happy when a general contractor simply shows up or returns their phone calls. But there’s more to choosing a general contractor who will fully and responsibly oversee your build. Here are a few of our insider tips:
No matter how many questions you ask, or how many references you check and double-check, no matter how strong your contract may be, or how precise our plans, there are no guarantees in general contracting. Choose someone with an untarnished reputation and finished projects that inspire you, and above all else, trust your gut.
And remember: We are always here to help ensure your GC is sticking to our plans. Call us any time.
