Learning Center for Contractors
Contractors come in all shapes and sizes, from the largest general to the smallest specialty contractor. It is a business, a highly technical and competitive business. Many of the usual construction contracting specialties such as plumbing, electrical, and mechanical require licenses to operate. The ability to win bids and/or attract business is a function of the contractor's experience and track record. Timely completion, good cost control, quality work, and the avoidance of costly arguments among subcontractors, suppliers, and owners are marks of a good contractor.
