Tips to Help Property Managers Hire the Right Contractor

21 Oct2015

Finding and hiring the right contractor is a daunting task for many property managers. You want someone who delivers quality work on time and budget, but doesn’t disrupt day-to-day operations of your company. We have curated some simple tips to make hiring the right contractor for your commercial property easy.

Start by communicating with the potential contractor about the details of the project. Ask them the time frame they will need to complete the task at hand. If you’re worried about exterior cleaning services disrupting your business then ask them if they are willing to work after hours. Discuss with them how they want to communicate throughout the project, and whether they prefer in-person or phone meetings to discuss progress. And lastly, ask them about their experience with similar projects.

Another important step in hiring the right contractor is addressing any unique needs you may have right off the bat. Many property managers are concerned with being “green.” If you fall in this category then you should discuss this with your potential contractor before making the decision to hire.

Lastly, make sure that you don’t focus solely on finding the cheapest contractor. This a mistake that many property managers make, and it usually ends in low quality work.
