As a homeowner, finding the right general contracting company can be a daunting task. With so many options available, it's easy to make mistakes that can lead to costly and time-consuming problems. That is why we at Hutchinson Contracting have put together this guide to help you avoid the most common mistakes when hiring a general contracting company for your home renovation project.


1. Not Checking Credentials
One of the most important things to do before hiring a general contracting company is to check their credentials. This includes licenses, insurance, and any certifications they may have. Hutchinson Contracting is a fully licensed and insured general contracting company, and we have the necessary certifications to ensure your project is completed to the highest standards.

2. Not Looking at Reviews
Another common mistake is not checking online reviews from previous customers. At Hutchinson Contracting, we pride ourselves on our excellent customer reviews and testimonials. We encourage you to read our reviews to see what our clients say about our work.

3. Not Having a Detailed Contract
It's essential to have a detailed contract in place before starting any renovation project. This contract should outline the scope of work, timeline, and budget for the project. Hutchinson Contracting will provide you with a detailed contract that includes all of these elements, so you can have peace of mind throughout the project.

4. Not Communicating Clearly
Communication is key when it comes to working with a general contracting company. Make sure you communicate your needs and expectations clearly and ask questions if you're unsure about anything. Hutchinson Contracting values clear communication and will work with you to ensure your needs are met.

5. Choosing Based on Price Alone
Finally, don't make the mistake of choosing a general contracting company based solely on price. While it's important to stay within your budget, it's equally important to choose a company with a proven track record of quality workmanship. Hutchinson Contracting offers competitive pricing without compromising on quality.


Hiring a general contracting company can be a significant investment, and it's essential to take the time to choose the right one. By avoiding these common mistakes and working with a reputable company like Hutchinson Contracting, you can ensure your renovation project is a success.
