Prince Albert Construction FAQ
Why should I hire a general contractor? Can’t I manage the process myself?
Permits – Miller Contracting will ensure the proper permits are applied for and obtained, and making sure the correct inspections occur.
Insurance – Miller Contracting is covered by WCB of Saskatchewan, ensuring you as the homeowner are not at risk if a worker gets hurt on your property during the construction.
Financing – If you decide to run the project yourself, you are responsible to order all material and pay for it up front, or soon after delivery in most cases. If you don’t have the funds available, you will not be able to get material. Also, most trades will expect to get paid as soon as the job is complete, with many asking for an up-front amount before they start working. Miller Contracting has developed solid relationships with the best trades in the area (after more than 40 years in the business, you would hope so, right?), so we take care of payment to all trades and suppliers.
Trades – speaking of trades, how will you know that each trade you hire is an expert in their field? When you hire Miller Contracting, you know that everyone working on your project has proven themselves to us, and will provide quality results. Otherwise, you will have to check references and interview a few of every trade to hire one. That is very time-consuming.
Time – who has enough of it? Your project is unique, and in order to get the best possible result, time has to be dedicated to answering questions from trades, meeting on –site, etc. That time is required every day, and that is time that Miller Contracting dedicates to each project so you don’t have to. We are your liaison to help you get the home you’ve always wanted!
