Finding the right dental commercial contractor for your practice is an important step in ensuring that you get the best possible space. Before you make a hiring decision, be sure to ask plenty of questions and do research into the contractor’s experience, qualifications, and references to ensure they’re the right fit for your needs.
Ask for Licensing and Certifications
When hiring a dental commercial contractor, it’s important to ask them for their licensing and certifications. This will help you confirm that they are qualified to do the work that you need done. Ask to see any copies they have of their state-issued licenses and certificates of insurance. You should also inquire about other certifications and qualifications related to the specialty of your project, such as HVAC installation or green building certification.
Get Portfolio Samples
When looking for a dental commercial contractor, you should always ask to see portfolio samples of their work. This way, you’ll be able to get a good idea of their experience and capabilities. Try to find out which clients your preferred contractor has worked with before and if possible, contact them for a reference or review. Also make sure the company is up to date on the latest technologies and building regulations, as these will ensure that the project is completed according to best practice standards.
Learn About Their Project Management Style
Ask the potential dental commercial contractor, how they manage projects and whether they have any processes in place to ensure timelines and budgets are kept during construction. Find out what their lines of communication are — will you be able to contact someone on the team at any time during the project? Lastly, make sure that their safety practices are up to date and in accordance with local regulations. This way, you can rest assured knowing that your practice is being built in a safe environment.
Ask For References and Testimonials
The key to finding a reputable dental commercial contractor is getting references and reading up on reviews. Make sure that you request references from contractors, as well as testimonials from previous customers. This way, you can get an idea of the type of work they do, how quick they are with communication, and whether they are able to produce the results that they promise. Don’t hesitate to talk to the references or read through online reviews if possible.
Know Your Budget
Before you look for a contractor, make sure to create a clear plan with your budget and design specifications. Ask yourself questions like “how much do I want to invest?” or “what materials should be used?” Having specific answers to these questions will help you narrow down potential contractors who are better able to meet your needs. You also need to define the timeline or schedule that you expect from the contract. Knowing this information upfront will save time in finding a qualified contractor and signing the proposal.
