Working With Your Contractor - Stair Builders

By Greg Vanden Berge

You finally accomplished the difficult task of finding a good contractor, now what do you do. I honestly can't tell you how many times I've seen a contractor and stair builders, get a job and then blow it. It doesn't happen all the time, but when it does it can be bad for both parties.

Before you even hire a stairway construction expert, make sure that you understand who's going to be doing the work. Most contractors sell the job and meet with the clients before any of the construction, remodeling or building ever takes place. You meet one person, but you haven't met the people who are going to be doing the work.

If you want to eliminate problems working with your contractor and stair builders, make sure that you know who's going to be doing the work.

Is the contractor going to be building the stairs?

Is he going to subcontract the work?

Does the construction company have their own workers or employees?

The reason why I'm writing this article, is because this a big problem in the construction industry. The client or homeowner meets a nice looking, well spoken individual whose pleasant and seems fairly intelligent.

Somehow, the client or homeowner gets the impression that this person is going to be working on the project, only to find out later that he was only selling the job. However, the construction crew that the contractor is going to use, could provide you with a different impression. One that isn't going to be pleasant.

The last thing you want to be stuck with, is an offensive construction worker that irritates the crap out of you. If you don't like smoking, ask the contractor, whether or not any of the construction workers are smokers. It's a simple question that can easily be answered.

If you do run into a problem, who do you contact? If you run into any problems, who do you contact and how long will it take to resolve them? By now you should be getting the point, of this article.

If you want to create a successful relationship, while working with your contractor and stair builders, make sure that you solve as many of your potential problems as possible, before the job even starts.
