Most savvy homeowners know the importance of hiring a licensed general contractor for a home remodel or custom home build in Mission Viejo. Most will even go to the Contractors State License Board website to check that the license number they are given is actually active and valid. However, just because a contractor is licensed by the CSLB doesn’t mean they are the best individual or company for the job.
If you have a smaller job you need completed, just about any licensed general contractor in Mission Viejo will do. However, if you have a large project, such as a custom home build, a whole house remodel, or a room addition, you’ll want to go with a general contractor with the ability to take on more complex, multi-faceted projects.
Here are some of the reasons why Scott McKee Construction is the best choice for taking on large residential projects:
Decades of Experience as a General Contractor in Mission Viejo
One of the things that makes our company stand out the most is our years of experience working as a general contractor in the area. Experience goes a long way in this industry. Over the years, we’ve learned so much when it comes to things like the best construction methods, the best materials to use, navigating local building code requirements, drawing up the types of plans that city officials like to see, and more. There’s really no substitute for experience in the construction industry.
Yes, every general contractor needs to start somewhere, but if you are investing in a major building or remodeling project, you want to work with a company that has a wide range of experience.
Huge Network of Quality Subcontractors
Along with our company’s many years of experience, come many years of working with subcontractors in the area. We know who all the best electricians, plumbers, roofers, and tile masons are. We also know who not to use. All the subcontractors we use are known for providing quality work at a fair price. Even still, we always oversee their work and make sure it is up to our high standards.
An Eye for the Details
There are a lot of general contractors out there who are great at building things. They can make them as sturdy as they come. However, these same contractors may have very little design sense. They’ll complete everything they said they would, but you might still find yourself disappointed because the attention to detail is just not there.
At Scott McKee Construction, we have an eye for the details. We know how to finish things off so they look complete. We add those finishing touches that you probably expect from a company that completes high-end remodeling and building projects. We often help our clients make design decisions when they have trouble making them on their own. For example, if you work with us on a kitchen remodel, we can help you select cabinetry, countertops, tile, and flooring that will all look great together and match the style you’re going for. We can also give you advice, based on our experience, on which types of materials and products hold up best over time. We are always happy to work with interior designers or kitchen and bathroom designers if you want to hire one of those types of professionals in addition to our general contracting company, but if you just need a little extra help in the design area, we can definitely be of assistance.
Here’s an example of a Mission Viejo home that got a complete interior remodel, designed by Scott McKee Construction.
History of Finishing Projects On Time and On Budget
One of the biggest complaints people have about general contractors is that they seem to always go over their stated timeline, and that the cost of the project tends to go up as “unexpected issues” pop up during the course of construction. This is extremely frustrating for homeowners, as it can make it difficult to budget. It can also mean their home life is disrupted for longer than they had hoped.
Scott McKee Construction is one of the few general contractors in the area that is known for finishing on time and on budget. Over the years, we’ve learned how to give our clients accurate estimates and stick to them! Here’s an excerpt from one of our recent testimonials:
“What I appreciate most was your attention to detail and being on time and budget – I had no margin for error, unfortunately. We tell people our contractor was on time and budget and they look at us like we’re from another planet. Thanks again.”
