General contracting involves:
To be a good general contractor, you need to have a thorough working knowledge of all trades involved, the time necessary to oversee the entire project, and strong leadership, management, and organizational skills.
If you are missing any of these qualities, it is very possible your project may take longer, work may need to be corrected later down the line, and your costs may be higher.
An experienced general contractor can avoid potential pitfalls and guide the team successfully through the construction process. This will eliminate unnecessary delays and costly mistakes. They can educate you on the best materials to use and hire efficient and competent workers. A good general contractor knows and understands the tricks of the trade that streamline the building process. Ultimately, working with a general contractor will allow you to relax and attend to your life while the team builds your home.
Sacred Oak Homes will manage the flow of your project efficiently and professionally. Construction can be a complicated process and you will benefit from our experience. We will create a project schedule on day one that will enable everyone to work together harmoniously and effectively, and we will maintain and update that schedule as the job proceeds. One of the most important components to effective orchestrating is knowing when to deploy. The job needs to flow in a certain order and some parts can be run simultaneously while others cannot. We check in with our subcontractors and suppliers on a regular internal schedule to make sure the project doesn’t suffer unnecessary delays.
It’s about what you know AND who you know. We have established strong relationships with many local, independent and skilled tradespeople. To do this, we assemble a team of talented and committed individuals (i.e. subcontractors, employees and suppliers) and guide the team on the path to successful job completion.
Sacred Oak Homes has enormous experience, resources and talent available to get your job done. We support and encourage each other throughout your project and we will produce beautiful results that you can take pride and comfort in. Sacred Oak Homes will inspect and take responsibility for all our work.
