Many home owners find themselves in the unenviable position of being the General Contractor on their Kitchen and Bath Remodel. They thought they were hiring someone else to do the work but unfortunately it became their job to manage the project when they picked the wrong team to do the work.
IT DOESN’T HAVE TO BE THAT WAY!
When you decided to upgrade your kitchen do you expect to be signing up to manage the schedules of the contractor?
Do you expect to manage your life around the lives of the people doing the work.
I WOULD THINK NOT!
IF YOU CHOOSE THE BIG BOX……
It may seem simple enough to purchase the material for your project from a Big Box Store and have the Big Box hire a subcontractor to come into your home to do the work.
Again, it seems simple enough, but do you really want the LOWEST BIDDER doing the work for you?
Will the BIG BOX actually manage your project?
The BIG BOX will hire the sub who is willing to do the work for the least amount of money.
The lowest bidder will handle it all for you.
Are you comfortable with that?
So you decide to purchase the material from the BIG BOX and hire your own contractor to do the work.
Do you really want to be a General Contractor?
Do you have the experience to deal with the potential issues?
