Looking for a home improvement contractor for your small project? There are many kinds of projects you can undertake in your home. For example, ranging from an entire house remodel to a few simple fixes and repairs around the house. In some cases a project falls somewhere in the middle and finding the right team to handle a project of small to medium size can be challenging.
Refresh/Update VS Remodel
Aren’t ready to tackle a full remodel? Have a desire for change in your home? A refresh or update is a great option for you. There are some easy indicators that you should look into a refresh. First, you are happy with the overall layout of your homestead. Second, your home’s infrastructure is still in good condition. Finally, the things you would like to change in your home are mainly aesthetic. Bathrooms and kitchens are great places to start with small project updates for the most impact.
A remodel is much more involved. Here are some signs that you should consider a remodel. First, you want to relocate space in your house. For example, you may not like that the kitchen and living room are closed off from each other. In this case, the wall separating them would be torn down and the space would be redesigned. Second, there are functional issues that need to be addressed. This can be things like electrical problems or serious water leaks. Finally, you feel the placement of appliances isn’t working for you or architectural placements don’t make sense for functionality.
Now that we’ve talked about updates and home remodels; let’s talk about who completes them. We will go over the difference between a general contractor and a home improvement contractor.
What is a General Contractor?
A general contractor is a company or a single person who manages a team of subcontractors. These subcontractors are hired to work on different projects in your home. Essentially, they are general managers. They will ensure the timeline of the project and that the work is completed. The aspects of home improvement that they oversee can range from construction, renovation, and big remodeling activities. Also, They will seek out the proper experts like architects, carpenters, electricians, and more. Overall, they manage the home improvement contractors’ projects.
What is a Home Improvement Contractor?
A home improvement contractor is an expert in a part of your home improvement project. For example, this can be things like carpentry, flooring, electrical, and more. Typically, they will work with an in-house team. Also, This team will handle different small and large projects without hiring subcontractors. A home improvement contractor can handle all of your small projects. They would only need to outsource if a project is too involved to be handled by their crew all alone. Sometimes, the project may require a special skillset which also results in outsourcing.
