The Best Construction Companies in Tampa FL Are the Ones Proven Safe To Hire

The state of Florida requires general contractors in Tampa FL to be licensed by the state, which requires a minimum amount of experience, and passing a proficiency exam.

But the state license is no guarantee that any particular custom home builder or general contractor in Tampa FL is doing business ethically, providing real value, or satisfying customers.

This makes it all the more significant that all residential or commercial construction companies in Tampa FL who bear The Prime Buyer's Report-TOP 10 symbol have been cleared by our research staff as passing all the requirements for Prime Buyer's Report-TOP 10 status such as survey phone calls to previous customers to verify high satisfaction, good complaint record, verified state license, verified liability and workers comp insurance for your protection, only employees legal to work in the U.S., and more.

Not all general contractors in Tampa can be equally experienced in every specialized area of construction. So find general contractors in Tampa FL based on the specific type of work you need done. Some general contractors specialize as custom home builders in Tampa FL, as design/build contractors, as commercial contractors or for municipal construction. Regardless of the particular construction services you need, there are general contractors in Tampa FL who can perform the kind of construction you want done.

Questions To Ask General Contractors in Tampa FL

Step 1: Describe The Construction Work to the General Contractors in Tampa FL
When you talk with general contractors in Tampa, explain what type of construction you need. Be consistent so each of the construction companies can submit an estimate based on the same information.

Step 2: Ask Questions and Take Notes
Before you create a list of possible general contractors for your construction project, ask them some important questions about their technical abilities, experience, and the specifics of your construction project. When the general contractors ask you questions, take notes on their concerns. They may reveal some aspects of the construction that are new to you.

Ask the general contractors the following questions about their experience, abilities, and methods:

• How long have they been builders in Tampa FL specifically?

• How many other projects have they done that are like yours? (Custom home building versus commercial building, etc.)

• Will the general contractor give you names and numbers of customers that you can call as references? (All general contractors bearing the Prime Buyer's Report-TOP 10 symbol have already had customers  references called  by our research staff so you don't have to.)

• How long will it take them to prepare a written bid once they conduct the estimate?

• Will they show you proof of workers' compensation and liability insurance? (All general contractors in Tampa FL bearing the Prime Buyer's Report-TOP 10 symbol have already had proof of insurance verified by our research staff so you don't have to.)

• Will the general contractor prove that all their workers sent to your property are legally allowed to work in the U.S.? (All builders in Tampa FL bearing The Prime Buyer's Report-TOP 10 symbol have already signed an agreement to only hire legally documented workers.)

• How do they determine pricing? For example is it T&M (time and materials) or a flat price and how are cost overruns handled?

• Will they give you a written contract that details the exact brands of products, model numbers, materials and amounts to be used? Neglecting to show those in writing is a way that seemingly cheap contractors unrealistically underbid others to get your project. Either you're getting poor materials that look bad or will fail. or you request better materials once the job is underway and the cost goes up accordingly.

• What type of written guarantee does each of the construction companies provide and what are the terms?

• Will construction permits be needed? If so, will the general contractors be responsible for getting those or do they leave that to you? Failure to get permits is another way cheap contractors in Tampa are able to underbid legitimate ones. Unfortunately unpermitted work can stop you from selling the property and even make you liable you to big fines and repair costs to get it to code.

• Will they be bringing in subcontractors for your project and if so, what are those company names?

• How often and when will they clean up the work site?

When you've chosen the best contractors in Tampa FL for your specific needs, make sure they are registered with the state of Florida. (All general contractors in Tampa FL bearing the Prime Buyer's Report-TOP 10 symbol have already had their state registration verified by our research staff so you don't have to.)
