From your initial vision to final completion, excitement about a building or renovation project obviously abounds. But before you select the right Calgary contractor for your project, before the first nail is driven or you hear the sounds of saws, property owners should really slow down and make sure they have thought things through.
Go beyond having a vision...make a list!
One of the biggest and most costly mistakes many property owners make is picking up the phone and calling a contractor without thoroughly thinking through the entire project. Without making a list of specifics, details will fall through the cracks which should have been accounted for in bids from contractors. This results in unanticipated expenses.
Also, without a detailed plan and list of "wishes", bids from those various contractors will be hard to compare. Did they all include the same things? Are they all using the same specifications? To the best of your ability you should prepare a list of measurements and things like fixtures to be used. Make sure any potential contractor receives your list and plans.
Find out what will legally be required before beginning any building project in Calgary.
Whenever you are contemplating a building or renovation project you should anticipate permits that may be required. Fortunately Calgary has a very helpful website. It will give you a general guideline for the type of project you have in mind, what may be required and what you can do yourself.
Check out the website to avoid potential problems, and to make sure your potential contractor is including and pulling the correct permits in their bids. Download fee schedules and the Code of Conduct, which delineates all that needs to be done and what to expect during your project.
