Hiring a Framing Contractor and Questions You Should Ask

Hiring an expert framing contractor for your construction project can make all the difference

Building a business from the foundation up can be a daunting task but rewarding as well when you hire the right people to make the process more manageable. Besides the builder of your foundation, the framing contractor is the next person that you need constant communication with to make sure that you have a reliable and durable structure. Mahogany, Inc. can offer you the best that general contracting has to offer. With almost thirty years of expert commercial general contracting experience, we have you covered, and we understand how challenging it can be to hire the right team for any general contracting job. Here are significant questions that you should ask (and we’re not afraid to answer) when it comes to hiring a framing contractor. 

Is the Framing Contractor Licensed and Insured?

Protecting yourself and your valuable investment should always be at the forefront. Making sure that your framing contractor has a license and accreditations from a reputable organization will reduce your liability factor in case there’s an injury. Here at Mahogany, Inc., we are accredited by the Architectural Woodwork Institute. We also have certified SBA NAICS in the following but aren’t limited to:

  • Commercial and Industrial Building Construction
  • Finish Carpentry
  • Drywall and Insulation

How Long Has the General Contracting Company Been in Business?

Verifying a framing contractor’s experience ensures that the company you choose has sufficient formal training along with the expertise to get your construction project done as you see fit. Anyone can learn a trade, but having proof of a company’s expertise gives you peace of mind.

Can They Provide You With a Timeline?

Deadlines mean everything in the world of business, especially when it comes to construction projects. A for sure start and completion date comes with an experienced framing contractor. A qualified framing contractor will always give you an estimate of how long it will take to finish the construction project. 

Can You Get All The Details in Writing?

An itemized estimate for your entire construction project, such as the cost of materials, labor, and any other included costs, is something that you need in your hands. You can compare estimates, which an expert and trustworthy general contracting company such as us will always provide.
