What should you not tell a General Contractor?

December 20, 2022

It is generally not a good idea to withhold important information from a general contractor. A general contractor is a professional who is hired to oversee and coordinate the construction or renovation of a building or other structure. In order to do their job effectively, they need to have a clear understanding of the project and any relevant details.

Withholding important information can cause problems and delays in the construction process and may even result in additional costs. It is important to be honest and transparent with a general contractor and to provide them with all relevant information about the project, including any specific requirements or preferences, budget constraints, and any potential challenges or issues that may arise.

Some examples of information that should be shared with a general contractor include:

  • The scope and details of the project, including any plans or drawings
  • Any specific materials or products that need to be used
  • Any deadlines or time constraints
  • Any budget limitations or constraints
  • Any permits or approvals that are required
  • Any potential issues or challenges that may arise during the construction process

By providing a general contractor with all relevant information, you can help ensure that the project is completed efficiently and effectively, and that any potential issues are addressed in a timely manner.
