"General Contractor" vs. "Contractor

If you're getting into construction or home renovations please know the difference between hiring A "General Contractor" and a "Contractor"

A general contractor and a contractor are both involved in construction projects, but there are some differences in their roles and responsibilities.

1) General Contractor: A general contractor is typically responsible for managing the entire construction project. They oversee the project from start to finish, coordinating all aspects of construction, including hiring subcontractors, obtaining permits, managing schedules and budgets, and ensuring the project is completed according to specifications and regulations. General contractors often have a broad knowledge of construction and may specialize in residential, commercial, or industrial projects. They are the primary point of contact for the client and are responsible for delivering the project on time and within budget.

2) Contractor: The term "contractor" is more general and can refer to various professionals involved in construction. Contractors can specialize in specific trades, such as plumbing, electrical work, carpentry, or HVAC (heating, ventilation, and air conditioning). These specialized contractors are often hired by the general contractor to perform specific tasks or installations within a construction project. They focus on their area of expertise and are responsible for executing the work according to industry standards and project requirements.

In summary, a general contractor oversees and manages the entire construction project, while contractors specialize in specific trades and are hired by the general contractor or directly by the client to perform specific tasks within the project.
