A general contractor is often interpreted as referring to someone with broad responsibilities. As it turns out, the job description isn’t that broad. Generally, a general contractor is responsible for supervising construction projects. Depending on the location, these projects may be either commercial or residential in nature, ranging from simple houses to high-rise buildings.

Unfortunately, just like any other industry, the construction industry is too plagued with myths and misunderstandings. We at TCF Contracting LTD have encountered a few stereotypes that still mar the industry. So we want to clear the air about hiring general contractors. Keep reading to know more about it.

Myth: General contractors are unnecessarily expensive

Let’s get straight into this big one.

Among the most common myths associated with the construction industry is the cost of quality work. This myth exists as many people don’t value tradespeople the same way they value other careers.

General contractors are professionals who have years of experience in construction. This line of work is not an easy business, nor is it everyone’s cup of tea. Like any other job, it requires hard work, dedication, and training.

Therefore, when it comes to pricing their services, a seasoned contractor knows how to price each aspect of the project appropriately. In fact, a quality contractor will put together a team of knowledgeable subcontractors with a record of excellent performance. This means that a general contractor has diligently estimated the true cost of your construction project and then added the necessary percentage to cover their overhead costs.

Customers can dispel this myth by having a realistic perspective on cost and by respecting tradespeople as they are educated and passionate about their work.
