What's The Difference: Restoration Vs. General Contractors?
Thursday, August 20th, 2015
So, you've asked around your group of friends to gain a recommendation for a contractor, checked a list of references, and perhaps even checked in on their business. But keep in mind that a general contractor's bottom line is to convince you to sign a contractor: they will not mention anything that will dissuade you from your decision. So how do these contractors differ from restoration contractors? In this post we will compare these two types of contractors.
What Are General Contractors Responsible For?
Residential general contractors are typically home remodeling professionals who organize and are responsible for the execution of larger remodeling projects. It is beneficial to think of residential contractors as being in charge of home improvement contractors, who are responsible for smaller tasks, such as installing new windows, siding, landscaping. Residential contractors are responsible for longer projects that incorporate specific design and architectural concepts to provide a homeowner with a more comfortable living experience.
Why Do People Hire Restoration Contractors?
Many Connecticut homeowners are often clueless about the differences between an insurance restoration contractor and a general renovation contractor. Most general contractors focus their time on new construction, while restoration contractors work with the insurance industry and their policyholders.
Restoration contractors have years of experience and the knowledge necessary to repair homes that have been damaged by fire, water, smoke or wind. In these situations, it is essential to keep in mind that there is a distinct difference between restoring a damaged home compared with remodeling or renovating an existing home. General contractors are not nearly as familiar with the insurance claim procedure.
Connecticut restoration contractors are always on the call, employing their own team with a reliable number to respond to your calls at any time of the day or night. A contractor who is responsive can help homeowners to avoid any further damage to their home, and has the ability to ensure the project has a safe plan in place before work begins.
