Using a construction consultant — like Scott Binsack, of Mansions & Estates International — to oversee your next project brings many benefits and advantages to you as a property owner.
Not everybody has the time, knowledge or desire to oversee the construction, renovation or restoration process.
Your construction consultant will serve as a liaison between you and your contractors. In addition, your construction consultant will strive to guard your interests. In fact, many clients forget that the builder or contractor isn’t looking out for your best interests; in fact, they protect their own best interests and often, their interests may conflict with yours, leading to a sticky situation.
In addition, many clients have never been involved in a building, renovation or restoration project. It’s new, unfamiliar territory and some less-than-honest contracts take advantage of clients’ ignorance.
In addition to serving as a liaison and guarding your interests, your construction consultant can help save money on your building project. This is achieved in a few different ways, by helping to keep the project on-track and avoiding costly delays.
Your consultant can also help you to avoid a situation where the contractor takes advantage of a client’s ignorance concerning the cost of labor and materials. The average person has no idea about the price of drywall or what it costs to perform a particular element of the project. Contractors are aware of this fact and some will exploit that ignorance by over-charging for building materials and services. But your consultant can easily identify cases where you’re being overcharged or even charged unnecessarily.
