Your General Contracting questions, answered

Answers to commonly asked questions from the experts on HomeGuide.

How much do local general contractors charge?

General contractors charge 10% to 20% of the total construction cost, known as "cost-plus." Some building contractors charge a flat fee based on the project but rarely charge an hourly rate. Home improvement contractors pay on your behalf for all materials, subcontractors, services, and permits.

What does a residential general contractor do?

Licensed general contractors manage and coordinate the entire building process. A general contractor estimates the job, provides the materials and tools, and hires specialized subcontractors for the construction work. Remodeling contractors can perform electrical work, plumbing, HVAC, roofing, or build a house

Why use a general building contractor?

A general contractor saves you time, resolves any problems, and ensures the construction follows code requirements. General contractors have a network of experienced, licensed, and insured subcontractors to properly build any project. Home contractors also source all the materials, tools, and permits and pay for them on your behalf.

Common projects to hire a licensed general contractor are home, bathroom, kitchen, and basement remodeling.

How do I find a good general contractor?

Start by searching our list of construction companies near you. After finding contractors in your area:

  • Get at least three estimates from building contractors to compare.
  • Ask for references and to see a portfolio of their past work.
  • Verify their insurance, worker’s compensation, and bond guarantees.
  • Call references, read their reviews, and check out their previous work on HomeGuide and Google.
  • Ask about their warranties and guarantees.
  • Ask for a full itemized contract in writing in case of a dispute.
  • Avoid making large payments upfront. Come up with a payment schedule for work completed.

What questions to ask a general contractor before hiring?

Ask these questions upfront before hiring:

  • How long have you been a general contractor?
  • How many similar projects have you built?
  • Can you provide me with a list of references?
  • Can I see your portfolio?
  • Are you licensed, insured, and bonded?
  • Have there been any lawsuits against your company?
  • How do you handle damages that happen on the job?
  • Who's the project manager?
  • What qualities do you look for in subcontractors?
  • What hours do you and your crew work?
  • How long will the project take?
  • What permits do I need, and will you obtain them?
  • What does your warranty policy include?
  • Can you provide me a written estimate or contract with a breakdown of all costs?
  • What is the structure of the payment agreements?
  • Do you offer in-house financing?
  • What do I need to provide to get started?

Do general contractors need insurance?

A general contractor assumes responsibility for the project and should be licensed and insured. Ask for a potential contractor's license number and proof of insurance before hiring. Ask your local building department for licensing requirements, then verify the licensing on the state's licensing board website.

Recent success stories from people in the St Louis area.
Mark F.
Kim Hibbs and his staff provided excellent advice and support for our custom home project near the 39 North Ag Tech District in Creve Coeur. We received a quick response to all our communications, and the project stayed on schedule and in budget throughout the process. Our geothermal, energy efficient home pays back in benefits every day, and we could not have done it without the help of Hibbs Homes.

Rick is an especially responsive and thoughtful contractor. His team is first rate; friendly, industrious, and exceptionally competent. In the execution of my bathroom, he and his staff came up with a creative solution to the shower drain that made a more dramatic and seamless space. He was very accommodating to changes and additions to the construction process. When my personal subcontractor for my floor refinishing suddenly balked at the job, He had his subcontractor come in. That individual did, I believe, an even better job than the person I initially selected. The final product is terrific and has exceeded all my expectations. My entire experience with Rick was professional and pleasant. I most heartily recommend Rick for any home remodeling project you might have. I am looking forward to having him work on my next phase in the coming months!

Mark is a true craftsman. He was able to take our worn, weather beaten, 100 year old front door and bring it back to life – it’s truly stunning. In our foyer he was able to match existing baseboards and chair rail perfectly and install that baseboard over a rather uneven slate floor. We also worked with mark to install a new “mini-crown” above our powder room door. Because none of the local milling shops carried an exact match (and we didn’t want to pay to create a custom pattern) we were able to work with Mark to find a more economical solution that was close enough to the original – I suspect most guests in our home will be none the wiser. Overall Mark was easy to work with, communicated clearly, and produced quality work – I would happily work with him again.
