|"General Contractor" originally referred to an individual or group that, rather than specializing in one trade, provided all services necessary for a construction or renovation project. While general contractors are still typically responsible for overseeing the entire construction project, very often this contractor is little more than a business person who will never lay a hammer on your home or business. United Exteriors invites you back to a time when your "GC" was not only responsible for every phase of construction and the materials used, but was also knowledgeable and experienced in these areas. Our staff of skilled craftsmen personally handle nearly every task:
If we need to hire an electrican, plumber, or other specialist, you can be sure that we have worked with them before. We hold them to the same high standard we impose upon ourselves. Each is a highly skilled tradesman, aware of the expecations working with a well established and highly regarded company like United Exteriors.
Well meaning friends or relatives may try to convince you to be your own GC, to cut out the "middle man". Most folks that do this quicly learn why a general contractor earns a paycheck! We are continually keeping up to date on standards and regulations and staying educated on the latest products and materials, selecting the right ones for your job. We make sure that all work is performed legally and to code specifications. We coordinate not only all of the tradesmen who work on your project, but city and town inspectors and utility companies. We also keep your project on schedule and on budget! We prep your site, and keep it clean and safe through every phase of construction.
Best of all, you'll have one point of contact, making it easy for you to ask questions and get feedback. Don't be lured by false economy. With our staff of skill craftsmen, we think you'll be pleasantly suprised with the value of United Exteriors as your general contractor.
