Finding the best construction company Wyoming offers for your project is essential, but searching for the right contractor is often a process shortened because of time constraints. Here are some of the major pitfalls that you should avoid even if you are under lots of pressure to get the construction started:
- Ignoring credentials and referrals – the contractor’s license, insurance and other certificates, their track record and their portfolio of previous work, their referrals from previous clients are all essential for determining the quality of the contractor’s services. This also means that not taking the time to check all the documents and referrals provided can be a huge mistake, so should never be skipped;
- Choosing the lowest price – the process of searching for the right contractor should include the evaluation of bids or cost estimates received from at least three or four contractors. While it might be tempting to choose the cheapest bid, good quality construction materials are not cheap, so the lowest offer is probably one that cuts corners somewhere;
- Not having everything in writing before the project starts – you should never start a building project without having all the details of the project included into a binding contract.
