3 Questions to Ask a Commercial Contractor Before Hiring Them 

Finding the right commercial contractor for your next commercial project is essential. At AO Contractors, we understand it’s an important investment for your company, so you want to make sure you have the right contractor for the job

With so many different commercial contractors to choose from in the Orange County and Los Angeles areas, we understand it might seem daunting to find the best team to get the job done right, and on time, to bring your vision to life.

In addition to asking some of the more basic questions about the prospective commercial contractor’s permits, licensing, insurance, we suggest asking the following questions to help find the right fit for your next commercial project

1. How long have you been working in the Southern California area? 

When it comes to finding the right commercial contractor, it’s vital to find out how much experience the company has in the city and county it services, and for how many years. Since there are many regulations, rules, and codes that are involved in the commercial building process, it’s important to attain this information. Working with an experienced local contractor is essential when it comes to making sure your project is streamlined, on time, and on budget. 

2. What commercial projects have you worked on in the past?

Experience and reputation are everything when it comes to working with a commercial contractor. Find out the type and level of experience the company has and who they’ve done business with; it speaks volumes. Additionally, look for testimonials from clients, check out their portfolio to see similar projects, and see if they have repeat clients. That’s a good to measure their efforts.

3. How much will it cost?

When planning your commercial construction project make sure you establish a set budget before you get any bids from potential construction companies. It’s a smart idea to get several bids to compare contractors. The bid should include scope, a work schedule or timeline of a building project, and a detailed breakdown of the cost from start to completion. Having all the pertinent information will help you better assess which commercial contractor is the right price and the right fit.

  • I love how you point out that experience as well as a good reputation makes a construction company. My uncle has been investing in a property where they want to build condos. So he’s been looking into finding a construction contractor he can trust to take great care with this project and do quality work.

    • Thanks for your comment Jessie. A commercial general contractor establishes its reputation with each project. The key to developing trust is delivering quality work on a consistent basis.
