General Contractor Sacramento

What is a General Contractor?

A general contractor (also known as a main or primary contractor) is one who oversees all other contractors (e.g. plumbing, HVAC, electrical, framers/roofers, etc.) on a construction site.

This includes managing the day-to-day operations and maintaining communication with all parties involved, including you as the homeowner.

The Top Traits that Make a Great General Contractor

Whether you live in Sacramento or a surrounding city, a great general contractor Sacramento will possess most (if not all) of the following characteristics:

  • A trusted team of trades. Many of Spectrum One’s trades have been working in the construction industry their whole lives, and many have worked with us since we first opened our doors more than 20 years ago.
  • Good listening and communication skills. General contractors act as the “heart” of a project, and they need to be adept and listening to you as well as their trades, and at communicating how to accomplish things in the most efficient manner.
  • Reliable and trustworthy. When it comes to building your home or renovating your kitchen or bathroom, you need to know that your general contractor will be onsite when needed, and that they’ll keep the project on track.
  • A big part of this also involves organization and the ability to anticipate problems before they rear their ugly heads, and for coming up with creative solutions when they do. This goes a very long way toward ensuring you get the exact home you’re expecting, and that the project remains on track and on budget.
  • Respect and cleanliness. If you’ve ever been on a construction site and witnessed trash strewn all over the place, this is not something that shows respect for you as the homeowner. All of Spectrum One’s general contractors and trades will never treat your property like they wouldn’t their own homes.
  • Customer service. One of Spectrum One’s top priorities for any project is to provide exceptional customer service while it’s ongoing, and long after it’s complete.

Fortunately, Spectrum One’s general contractors are carefully vetted for all of these qualities (and more) before they ever step foot on a job site. Ultimately, this means you can get the home of your dreams in as little time, and with as little hassle, as possible.

What Does a General Contractor’s Typical Day Look Like?

How a general contractor’s day depends largely on the type of project they’re overseeing, such as residential or commercial, home remodel or new construction, painting, installing laminate or hardwood flooring, and more.

In general though, a general contractor will review a project’s progress, make sure everything meets code requirements and the client’s specifications, swiftly and efficiently deal with any problems that arise, and maintain constant communication with their subs and with the homeowner.
