This post is one in a series on remodeling small bathrooms and part of a sub-series on how to evaluate and select your contractor. For either of the lead posts, please select one of the links in the prior sentence.
This post explains the importance of you knowing in advance if your contractor will themselves perform work, or do the strictly supervise their workers.
Understand there is no one best answer, but this is a detail you need to know as you need to know who to get your status updates from and you need to now who to take any issues or questions you have to.
The Solera Group provides expert bathroom remodeling services in the greater San Jose metro area.
Some contractors (and by contractor I’m referring to the person who qualifies the contractors license) do most if not all of the work themselves. If this is the case you know already who to get status updates from and to take issues and questions to.
In larger firms the contractor may be running multiple jobs simultaneously, have their employees do the work, and provide supervision to their employees. This also applies to sub-contractors who are strictly speaking not employees of the contractor but are supervised by your general.
In still larger firms the contractor may hire construction supervisors who have this job oversight responsibility, in which case one of them becomes your primary point of contact.
Again, there is no one right answer, but it’s important you know up front.
If you have a personal preference, allow it to influence your selection of contractor. If you do this, clearly you must know BEFORE you pick one.
