Commercial Construction? We Do it All!

Do you own a commercial lot or building and are thinking about remodeling, renovating, or building from the ground up and don’t know who to choose to do the work? It is the best to select a contractor who is familiar with commercial or retail space. You don’t want a contractor working on a commercial construction space who only specializes in residential remodels. A contractor who does commercial remodels will be able to find ways to save on costs, utilize what already exists, and perhaps most significantly, finish on time.

One of the main reasons for hiring experienced local professionals comes down to following building codes. Commercial buildings are subject to many more government regulations than residential structures are—and they’re more likely to get fines when they break code. “Knowing city and state regulations for commercial buildings is only the beginning. Sometimes there are also local requirements such as permits for electrical or plumbing work in public restrooms or inspections to be scheduled. You don’t want to find out about infractions after work has begun; a bargain basement contractor may seem like a good deal at first, but when fines need to be paid and work needs to be redone to meet official code, you may end up spending far more than you bargained”.
