GC vs. DIY

2 Replies

Hello all,

Am not sure that I am in the right forum.  I do have couple questions about rehab and GC.

- Should I manage my own rehab project rather hire a GC?  If so, what are the steps to do so in regarding what work need to be start first and so on?

- Should I pay GC cost plus %fee, or flat out on a project?

- Can the GC have a lien on your property if there never at any point there an official contracts signed?

- Should I have the GC given me a bid only on the labor and few necessary items to perform the job for instant, painters I will be providing the paint and they provides whatever need.

- Should I hire each individual trade master by the hrs/project and what is the best way to have an good estimate on how much things cost?

All your soonest reply greatly appreciates.  I live in Dallas TX,

You have a lot of questions, but this one kind of stuck out to me. I don't know any GC's that are going to give up their subs to you.


Of course not, I will have to find my own.  thanks sir.
