Save Money Being Your Own General Contractor

Attempting to save money by being your own General Contractor isn’t new.

GC’s commonly charge between 20 and 50 percent over the actual cost of the work being done. Thats a significant amount of money that might make you think, “Well I could do that“, and you probably could. Could you do it efficiently though? The main tasks of a general contractor is to obtain bids, maybe order some materials, schedule the work, and make sure everything goes as smoothly as possible.

There is a catch though

You’re not a general contractor. You don’t have years of experience or a roster of trades that you’ve held good relationships with. That 50 percent savings starts to slip pretty quickly if you make a mistake or two. You’re probably not getting the best prices from your subcontractors either because they don’t know you and they want to make sure there aren’t going to be any surprises that cost them.
