Questions To Ask General Contractors in Olympia WA 

Step 1: Describe The Construction Work to the General Contractors in Olympia WA
When you talk with general contractors in Olympia, 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 Olympia WA 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 cusomters 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 Olympia WA 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 Olympia WA 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 Olympia 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?  What does the final post-project clean up include?

 

When you've chosen the best contractors in Olympia WA for your specific needs, make sure they are registered with the state of Washington as required by law. (All general contractors in Olympia WA 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.)

 

 

Tips About General Contractors and Construction Companies in Olympia WA 


Have A Plan For Evaluating the Builders

There are good commercial builders or home builders in Olympia WA. Feel free to have more than one conversation before moving forward and prepare what you want to cover before hand each time. You'll be happier with the end result when you make the time to properly outline your job and carefully match a builder to your needs.

Write a Description of the Job for the Builders
Write up a paragraph or two (depending on the intricacy of the job) about the project specifics before contacting construction companies in Olympia WA. Since each general contractor will see the same written specifics, you'll be sure that you are comparing responses on an equal basis. Then you can better judge which construction company gave you the best answers to your consistent description.

Don't Decide Based on Price Alone
It's okay to get a few separate estimates for comparison. But remember, price should not be your only determining factor. The cheap contractors in Olympia WA are usually not the best ones, and a cheap bid often turns out to be the most expensive in the long run due to cost overruns, or poor work that has to be fixed or redone by someone else.

Get it in Writing
Ask builders to give you everything in writing to prevent conflicts later. Ask the general contractors to provide you with a written description of the construction work, pricing and a time frame for completion.

Maintain Great Communication During Construction.
Communication is an often overlooked skill with general contractors. But to maintain a successful working relationship, both parties must make keep one another informed. If you have doubt about how the project is going, don't jump to conclusions. Instead, call and ask the builder about your concerns. There may be a reasonable explanation for changes or delays.

Commitment In Advance to do a Walk-Through Upon Completion
After the project is finished, return to the agreement you signed and walk through the site with the most senior staff member available at the construction company to compare the results to the particulars in the contract. Bring up any items that differ from what was agreed to.
