When many different contractors come in to set up on a job, they each need to bring their work trucks or trailers, set up scaffolding and ladders, and get their area ready to be worked on. When a single contractor is hired it makes the setup that much more efficient and thus shortens the project deadline because that time is spent working, not setting up and tearing down.
No Waiting Game and Downtime
Another benefit of hiring a single contractor for your restoration needs is that there is no waiting and downtime for companies who may be busy on other jobs or with other clients. If for some reason work can't proceed on one area (waiting for materials or inspection) the solo contractor can assign labor to other parts of the house so that the project always continues to move forward.
A Single Line of Communication
When you have multiple contractors each working on the siding, roofing, flooring, etc. that means a different line of communication for each aspect of the project. These contractors may have questions regarding materials, methods, etc. and which could blow up your phone line. Additionally you might have inquiries about a number of things as the restoration progresses. You'll have to contact each of these services individually and they may not know the answer anyway because it may be dependent on the progress of another of the trades.
Having multiple lines of communication is more than just a nuisance, it is a threat to the project. If changes to the project scope were made or other ideas were scrapped that information must be passed through many different levels of communication across multiple different services/trades. It is simply much easier and safer all-around to have a single company to contact.
Costs Will Actually Be Lower
So with one company you're not paying for downtime and project deadlines are lessened. You aren't wasting time contacting multiple different company supervisors and the risks are lessened that the project will be off scope. You can also negotiate one labor rate instead of having one high-priced contractor throw the whole budget out of whack. Material prices are generally usually lower too when one contractor goes to their supplier with a bulk order and a single delivery instead of multiple of each. All of this ends up saving you money on the project as a whole – which helps increase your return on investment.
