Single Contractor vs. Many 


jack of all trades iconWe have over the years, witnessed , and been a part of many home renovation projects, and we can say with some authority that we are aware of the many problems that occur when many different contractors are required to do their work simultaneously on the same property. We would like to share a bit of insight as to the amount of frustration and confrontation that is inevitable, in the hope that you might use this info to better handle a similar situation in the future.

There is a huge advantage in having a single, competent contractor who specialises in many facets of home improvement especially if these services are related to, and compliment each other when more than one product or service is required. The benefits in this regard are quite obvious in the following sense;

All work is coordinated by a single party who knows exactly what will be required each step of the way, thereby eliminating any conflict which can only be of benefit to the client e.g.... painting or cupboards which comes first; skirting or carpet; cupboard or carpet  etc.

There is increased responsibility as well as security which is very important with any job.

You can negotiate a much better deal with a single contractor, which could give you an overall saving of thousands of rand, depending on the size of the job.

The major disadvantages of having to many contractors are;

Lack of responsibility and accountability

Security breaches and violation of privacy.

Uncoordinated work that lead to unnecessary delays and frustration.

Priority given to their own work, often trying to finish as quickly as possible, even Preference given to their own work, which could be to the detriment of the client, who 

The positives of having a single competent contractor to do job, by far outweigh the negatives of having to many people in your home.
