In construction and remodeling, a contractor is a person hired by the client to carry out the work that is required for the completion of your project. Though they may not always possess the necessary skills to do the project themselves, they are in charge of appointing a subcontractor to complete that part of the project. Normally, there will be one contractor and a significant number of subcontractors involved in any given construction or remodeling project.

The role of a contractor can change based on the day. They are expected to be responsible for a wide range of tasks and people while constantly filling many different roles and positions throughout the duration of a project.

A general contractor is in charge of ensuring the project is completed to the best of the customers’ wishes and standards. Their duties include, but are not limited to:

  • Hiring Subcontractors
  • Taking care of materials and equipment
  • Schedule Monitoring
  • Property Security
  • Building Permits
  • Collaboration
  • Site Surveying
  • On-site Management
  • Facilities on Site
  • Site Engineering
  • Task Delegation
  • Paperwork

Most importantly, the contractor is accountable for the final result of the project and the quality of work delivered to the client. The role of a contractor can encompass a plethora of responsibilities and duties that change based on the project, budget, and day.
