If you’re building a new home, renovating your existing home or performing a full restoration, you could be facing a lengthy and costly building process.
The reality is this: your builder or contractor doesn’t look out for your best interests. They protect their own best interests and often, their interests may conflict with yours.
What’s more, many people have never been involved in a building project before, so it’s new, unfamiliar territory. Most builders know this and many less-than-honest contracts take advantage of clients’ ignorance.
For instance, many laymen don’t have a concept of what constitutes a reasonable fee for various services, materials, fixtures and other items that are required during the construction, renovation or restoration process. Contractors know this and many take advantage of clients by over-charging them significantly for various services.
Contractors can also deceive clients when it comes to timeframes, claiming that it takes five days to perform a task that should only take one or two days to complete.
These issues can lead to a construction project that takes much longer than it should and more time means more money for the contractor.
A consultant like Scott Binsack can work to represent your best interests, serving as a liaison between you and the contractor. This eliminates a great deal of the hassle that’s involved in the process.
But more importantly, your consultant is knowledgeable and wise to the work and expense that’s involved in each element of the project. In short, someone who’s worked in the industry is very difficult to deceive when it comes to expense and timeframes. So your consultant will help to keep the contractor honest, while ensuring the project remains on time and on budget.
