How close do you stay to time lines and budgets?
The budget and a reasonable time frame are stated in the contract, which is signed by all parties with copies provided before break ground or start any project. There is an Act of God provision in the contract. Construction during a hurricane is not only dangerous, but not likely to produce a good finished project, but check with our references and you can see for yourself if it's not due to nature or outside forces, we do what we say, when we say.
How are payments made, and when are they made?
Again, these terms are broken down in the contract based on progress with a completion date included. Typically we take a deposit of 10% for materials, and the rest of the payments are determined beforehand. Once the work is completed to a pre-determined point, a pre-determined payment is made, with final payment due upon completion.
How many of your customers come from repeat business, or from referrals from existing or previous customers?
We are very blessed to say that over 50% of our customers come to us or are referred to us from customers we've performed for in the past. As you will see when you check our references, there is a reason for such a loyal client base.
What about permits?
Depending on your location and what is being done, a permit might be required or it may not. If a permit is required for your project, we will obtain the permit, handle all inspections, make sure everything is built to code, and that the project and process satisfies all requirements to the letter of the law.
What should I be asking my contractor?
A few key questions to ask could be: “How long have you been in business?”, “Have you ever done a project like this one, if so tell me about it?”, “Do you have insurance?”, “Who does the work; you, your employees, or is the project completely done by sub-contractors?” With years of experience under our belts, General Contractor Inc is happy to provide all of these answers, and provide references if need be.
What about materials?
Important materials are specified in the contract. All materials are covered, however, as substitutions are sometimes unavoidable (lots of bricks run out, for example, colors of materials are sometimes no longer made), we make it clear that an equal substitution will be made but only upon your approval. For items such as lighting fixtures or doorknobs that you have not chosen when the contract is signed, a budget is determined in the contract to cover exactly what will be spent on them.
What is a change order?
A change order is a written statement signed by the customer authorizing the contractor to do additional work not included in the original contract. The change order should be signed before the additional work is started, but often it is not in order to keep the project moving. The amount specified is due when the project is completed. A change order also may be written when a contractor comes across any unforeseen damage or problem.
I was recommended by a friend
My experience with this company was so good. My job was pretty small and the treated me like I was spending hundreds of thousands of dollars. Thank you SDGC for you great work.
Fabulous price and great work
San Diego General contracting did a garage edition for me. Everything was on time at a very high quality
I couldn't be happier with the experience I had with SDGC. The service I received was fast nod professional.
SDGC is the best you can get! They have worked tirelessly to make our vision a reality. Their experience and eye for details have far surpassed anything I could have imagined. They are now my "go to" people for all projects.
Fast professional work.
SDGC provided me with quality work at a very competitive price. My project started with a kitchen remodel, which went amazing so I ended up having master bedroom addition. I would strongly recommend SDGC to all my friends and family.
I recently had my store remodeled by San Diego General Contracting. The whole project from start to finish was perfect and on time. They're bid came in 5kless then the other 4 companies I tried and the work they turned out met and surpassed all my expectations. I would recommend SDGC to everyone. Don M
I hired San Diego General Contracting Inc. to expand my existing restaurant in the Gas Lamo area. The results were outstanding, they were extremely professional, dedicated and went above and beyond to help us achieve the perfect addition to our restaurant. I plan on using this company for all of my construction needs. The services provided included renovation and remodeling an old restaurant and they created an opening to my existing space, it was a tenant improvement. I'd highly recommend this company if your looking for a cost-effective and a company that makes you a priority!
Our minor home improvements were done timely and right. Their follow up was thorough and I felt they really cared about us! Love the windows and door chosen! :-)
