Temecula General and Remodeling Contractor- We are a contractor you can rely on to complete your project on time, efficiently, professionally, and on budget.

What Type of Contractor Do You Require?
Here are some guidelines to follow when looking for licensed contractors. By following these steps, you may be able to avoid financial risk and other issues associated with unlicensed individuals.

Contractors in California are licensed in a variety of categories. This includes general contractors, landscapers, painters, electricians, plumbers, and many other professionals. If you carefully plan your project ahead of time and clearly define what you want done to your property, it will be easier to choose the right type of contractor.

We provide services for:

  • Kitchen remodeling in Temecula and Murrieta as well as surrounding communities.
  • General Contractor services in Murrieta and Temecula areas.

In California, anyone who contracts to perform work worth $500 or more in combined labor and material costs must have a current, valid CSLB license.

The Difference Between a General and a Specialty Contractor
General contractors typically supervise projects and coordinate the specific subcontractors for a job. There are varied types of general contractors:

• contractors work primarily with fixed works that require specialized engineering knowledge and skill;

• contractors work on existing structures, structures being built or to be built, and structures that require at least two unrelated building trades or drafts during construction.

• Specialty contractors are those who focus on a specific skill or trade. Specialty or subcontractors are typically hired to complete a single task. For example, if you only need roofing or plumbing work, you should hire a contractor who specializes in those areas. Manufacturers are contractors if they perform on-site construction, alteration, or repair.

A general building contractor may also contract for specialty work, but must have a specialty license or hire a specialty contractor to do the work. The only exception is if the job requires more than two types of building work. Then a licensed contractor should contract for and oversee the entire project. For example, if your kitchen remodeling project will combine plumbing, electrical, and carpentry work, you should hire a licensed General Building contractor. In these cases, the “B” contractor may complete all of the work on a building or subcontract portions of the work to contractors with specialty licenses.

What Services Does a Remodeling Contractor Provide?

When you hire a remodeling contractor, you are actually hiring a general contractor who specializes in remodeling. Are you planning to add a new room to your home? Renovating your basement to make it a playroom for the kids? That is the type of contractor you want to work with. They have the specialized skills and knowledge that you seek, gained through years of training and practical application.

Your Goals and Your Budget
A good contractor will be able to bring your ideas to life in three-dimensional forms in the shape of your finished room, but a great contractor will also keep you within your budget. However, keep in mind that not everything is possible, and that compromise may be a necessary component of any job. The size of the space you want to remodel, any structural changes you want, the products you choose to use, and the age of your home can all have an impact on your final budget. When a remodeling project begins on an older home, structural issues may arise.

Selecting the Best Remodeler for You

When looking for a remodeling contractor, one of the best places to start is with friends and family members. You can also check with your local realtors to see who they work with. It is always preferable to work with a local company. First, you can easily check their references, and second, you might even be able to see some of their previous work. When you’ve narrowed your options down to two or three companies, request copies of their licenses and insurance certificates. Speak with your local Better Business Bureau to find out if they have a lot of complaints against them and how they rank with them.

Improved Working Relationships

Before the work begins, ask your remodeling contractor how the work will disrupt your life.
If the project specifications need to be changed in any way, have your contractor create a hard copy change order. These must be signed by both of you.
You must keep a file with all project documentation, including the contract and any amendments, specs and plans, correspondence, bills, and change orders.
