Much like someone who’s newly engaged, a first-time developer or builder can feel overwhelmed by the sheer size of the project at hand. With so many moving parts and details, a contractor sounds like an excellent idea. However, you may still be concerned whether hiring one is worth it. Failing to hire a planner is among the bigger regrets couples have post-wedding.

Like a wedding planner, once you hire right, a contractor can be the difference between success and disaster.

Here are some reasons why the two are so similar, and why they’re definitely worth it –

1. They’ll save you money.

Just like experienced wedding planners; experienced contractors have in-depth knowledge of both the industry and the local market. This means they can stretch your budget by knowing what to spend and where. Offering you the best options in keeping with your resources for the project, they can also often pass on their discounts to you.

By working closely with the appointed builder in the supply and delivery of materials during the construction, they attract significant discounts that would not generally be given by the builder. They’ll also know the difference between price and value and can advise when the seemingly cheaper option will cost you more in the long run.

2. They’ll keep everything on track.

Whether it’s a construction venture or your wedding, chances are you’ve never taken on a project of this magnitude. Contractors, on the other hand, do this day-in, day-out and their experience lends itself to a much more streamlined process. Instead of you dealing with multiple vendors trying to ensure everything aligns for the project, Contractors like the Black Bess Group (who have more than 25 years’ experience) can provide all the necessary infrastructural options that take a project through to completion; Site Clearing; Foundation Excavation and Prep for the Builder; Services (Water/Electricity/Cable/Telephone) Installation; Driveway; Landscaping; and Landscape Design.

3. They’ll keep things stress-free

While they are worrying about the small details, you can be focusing on the big picture. Contractors will give you the right advice and guide you through the necessary steps to complete the project to your personalized requirements. If something goes wrong – and something always does – you don’t have to take care of it. A contractor will do the worrying, so you don’t have to. Your wedding day would be less fun if you’re anxious about the entertainment not showing up and your development project will be less enjoyable if you are worried the roof wasn’t up to par.

4. They’ll be with you from the start right through to the finishing touches.

From site investigation through foundation construction to the final landscaping of the property you’ll only have to deal with one company and one relationship. Without a contractor, you have to deal with multiple vendors and trying to get each one to share your vision. A contractor will see your vision from the beginning and will help it flourish right down to the last detail, making for an exceptional end result.

Whether it’s the happiest day of your life or currently the most important construction project, a good planner or contractor will be of immeasurable help. A personalized all-inclusive contractor, with years of experience, can make your development project painless, cost-effective and completed to time and budget.

Lastly, when looking for a contractor for your project, remember the difference between price and value; focus on finding a knowledgeable contractor with good references who will provide a competitive price and superior service and you’re guaranteed to start your project on the right foot.
