As most Las Vegas business owners know, commercial property renovation is vastly different from residential real estate renovation. Nevada requires you hire a licensed General Contractor to pull permits and perform the work. Before hiring a commercial real estate contractor, ask the following questions.
Commercial real estate renovation isn’t exactly an industry that you can jump into without being licensed with the Nevada State Contractors Board. If they have been in business for a long time they are more likely to be around to help you in the future.
If you opt for a contractor that isn’t properly licensed and insured, you’re basically rolling the dice on your commercial renovation. Without a license and insurance, a contractor is essentially a “handyman” that doesn’t have to stand by their work. Before you sign a contract with any contractor, meet with them and get references from their past clients make sure they are someone you want to work with.
You can tell a lot about Las Vegas builders and contractors based on the quotes that they provide for various commercial renovation projects. Your quotes should have a breakdown of work that the Las Vegas builder is performing not just a description of renovation. When you compare the quotes, make sure each one is providing the same thing and you are picking the lowest price. They should come back with change orders for items not in their quote. Trying to compare apples to apples is best, so you don’t get a lot of change orders increasing the lowest price to higher than the complete bid.
Finding Las Vegas builders willing to take on commercial renovation jobs isn’t hard. Tracking down the best contractors for a specific job is a lot tougher. If you ask the questions mentioned above, you’ll locate a topnotch contractor for your commercial renovation project in short order.
