Building a new home or taking on a renovation project means you get everything you want, the way you want it, in a way that makes sense for you. However, the process comes with challenges that don’t exist with a new home purchase. Hurricane season and supply chain shortages aside, homeowners who oversee their own residential home builds and renovations contend with other issues, too. Di Pasqua Construction Inc. provides construction project management so that you can focus on other things. Here are the top four new construction headaches that prompt people to use our services.
The first item on the list of new construction headaches is obvious to most. Rare is the person who establishes and completely stays within the initial budget. Material costs, unexpected issues, and upgrades often cause budget increases. Cash flow challenges contribute to paying expenses on time, too. Money management is one of the top challenges people face in their daily lives, which is especially true when it comes to new construction projects.
1. Managing the Budget
Some people want to act as general contractors and oversee the entire construction process, including managing subcontractors. Leading the charge provides the opportunity to ensure things occur on time, and that quality work is done. It also allows you to make time-sensitive decisions and identify emerging issues. At the same time, the role can almost turn into a full-time job. If you already have one of those, you may find it difficult to tackle both.
2. Managing Subcontractors
Next on the list is obtaining permits. This may seem like easy administration, but that’s not always the case. First, it requires relying on subcontractors to inform you what permits are needed. You can also do your own due diligence; however, permits are one area where you absolutely want no mistakes. Consequently, permit mistakes can lead to fines and other legal issues. Moreover, the permit process varies depending on the type and the location to request and obtain them.
3. Obtaining Necessary Permits
Supervising the construction process requires more than popping in occasionally to see how things are going. Scheduling subcontractors and ensuring they meet deadlines demands communication, attention, and time. If one crew gets behind, this impacts every other part of the process. Even seasoned contractors experience months-long delays when some of these issues arise. Coordinating with different groups, overseeing materials, and managing labor are best done by someone well-seasoned in the construction industry.
