I was happy with the work that Victor did for me. He used to do the building work as well as some small jobs for me and he did a good job. Upon engaging him, he was always on time and was very reliable. He was also a good person with a great attitude towards his work. After completion of work, he would ensure that everything was clean and neatly done. Unfortunately, I had to move close to the sea and I could not take him with me, but my experience with him overall was good. .

What Does a Contractor Do?

  • A contractor oversees and manages a construction site, whether be an individual home or a building development. They are fully in charge of coordinating the project, which includes everything from assessing documents, analysing the site for the build or renovation.
  • Contractors are also responsible for managing the work carried out by vendors to make sure everything runs on time and according to spec.
  • In addition to managing the vendors or subcontractors, a contractor is in charge of communicating with the client as well and essentially becomes the middle man between vendors and the client.
  • Part of their duties includes making sure the correct equipment, materials, labour and services are provided to com[lete the project. They might do most of this work themselves or they might bring on board subcontractors to help them finish the project.
