As your General Contractor, Dynamic Restoration Solutions LLC oversees your residential or commercial building projects from inception through completion.  

Planning

As your General Contractor, we plan all phases of a construction project.  Dynamic Restoration Solutions must estimate the costs of materials and staffing; the expense involved in securing permits; and the cost for equipment that must be leased or purchased.  Based on these estimates, we prepare a budget.  We must also prepare a timetable that establishes milestones for phases of the project to ensure completion dates are met.

Interacting with Others

A number of professionals and sub-contractors are often involved in a construction project.  As General Contractor, we might need to interact with the architect who designed the project or the engineer who developed the mechanical aspects of the project.  We may also need to work with other professional construction specialists or sub-contractors, such as landscape architects, master electricians or demolition engineers.  One of the ways customers benefit when they hire Dynamic Restoration Solutions LLC as their General Contractor is through our knowledge and experience with sub-contractors in the region.  We have a network through which to verify the legitimacy of particular specialists, and we have worked with countless sub-contractors over the years.  

We know:

  • Who you can trust in your home or place of business;
  • Who provides the best quality work with the best materials and staff;
  • Who will stay on-time and on budget for your project; and
  • Countless other details that are critical to the safety and substance of your job.

Jobs typically involve direct contact with the client to keep apprised on job progression and issues that might arise.  As your General Contractor, we handle hiring and are responsible for instructing new workers on the specifics of the job.

Thinking about a DIY Approach to Your Project?

Acting as your own General Contractor is a DIY option which sounds good on the surface.  People often think this is a great way to save money on their renovation.  

How hard can it be?
The answer is: Hard.

Here are your responsibilities should you choose to act as your own General Contractor:
‚Äč
  • manage the details of the renovation project,
  • secure the required building permits,
  • hire, fire and schedule sub-contractors,
  • order building materials & supervise installation,
  • inspect the quality of work completed by sub-contractors,
  • coordinate formal building inspections with the permit office,
  • ensure work is done to code, and 
  • trouble-shoot design or logistical issues.

That's a tall order.  It should be clear from the job description that not every property owner is suited to being a General Contractor.  Do you have the knowledge?  If so, do you have the time to dedicate to your project?

If you decide to act as your own General Contractor, there are common pitfalls that often arise:

Most people understand that they will pay more for supplies, and everybody know they have to do their research when hiring sub-contractors.
But are you aware of the surprise gotchas?

  1. A reputable general contractor usually has a good long-standing work relationship with the sub-contractors.  The general contractor takes care of them and the sub-contractors make an extra effort to do a good job on schedule.  Sub-contractors will work for the same general contractors through the year, year after year, so they must produce a quality product time after time to continue to get work from the general contractor.  The dynamics of that relationship are both significant and crucial.  If you are your own general contractor, the sub-contractors may not have the same allegiance to you, so you should plan on running behind schedule a little, which can eat up at least 5 percent of your savings.  
  2. You need to be available to spend time on site to closely monitor your project, which could take anywhere from 10 to 40 hours per week, depending on what stage you are in the process.  If you have a demanding full-time job, be prepared to take time off.  You must also have an intimate knowledge of your plans so that you notice any accidental errors along the way.  If you miss something early, repairing or modifying the plans later to accommodate the error can use up much of your 10 percent savings.  
  3. Many people under estimate the time it will take to get building permit approval.  If you do not have any experience with permits, it can feel like you are in a maze.  Sometimes half of the project is just getting the permits.  Be sure to go into the permit office as early as possible in the process to find out the restrictions.  That way, you're not spending time and money developing plans for which you can't get a permit.  
  4. When you act as your own General Contractor, you become responsible for any third party injuries that may occur on your property or damage to property by sub-contractors.  If the sub-contractor doesn't carry liability insurance and workers compensation insurance, they aren't able to cover any claims, which could end up landing on your homeowners' insurance...or worse.  Also, if your sub-contractors don't pay their suppliers, a lien could be filed against your property even if you have already paid the sub-contractor for those supplies.  
  5. And last but not least, a construction project will take its toll on your relationship.  Be sure that you are both in agreement that acting as your own general contractor is in your best interest and make sure you have a strong relationship because unfortunately a higher than average percentage of couples that take on DIY construction projects end up resenting one another.  

As it turns out, hiring a general contractor may be the best decision you make all year!

Ensuring Compliance

On any construction project, there are a number of laws and regulations that we must follow as your General Contractor.  Local building ordinances might ban certain materials, for example, such as wood shingles.  We must follow applicable labor laws, including organized union contracts under which employees work.  The contractor must know the safety regulations for various jobs and equipment operators to ensure that employees comply.

At Dynamic Restoration Solutions LLC, we act as General Contractors supervising a wide variety of projects, including the construction of homes, offices, hospitals or government buildings.

A large part of our work is communicating with workers, owners and coordinating logistics to ensure the project time line is kept.  

Why Hire a General Contractor for your Residential or Commercial Construction Project?

Just like with any type of project, a residential or commercial construction project requires a great deal of attention to detail.  There are so many things that must be completed in the early stages so that the project can be completed on time and within the budget.

Mis-communications and human errors are the number one reason why construction projects are often not completed on time.  It requires a very organized business to ensure that the project runs smoothly and that all of the required paper work is completed early on to avoid delays during the project.
