What does Design Build Contractor mean?
A true design build contractor takes on full responsibilities of a project to completion based on the approved designs, specifications and general conditions that make up the whole of the construction contract.
Someone who is not, will have a low bid upfront then when unaccounted for items arise after an agreed upon construction contract, you will get charged the additional costs from change orders for the additional work. This means additional charges on top of the original contract price. These hidden charges can be inflated to make up for the original low cost given at the initial construction contract.Most homeowners end up biting the bullet and giving in to the additional charges being held hostage to having their project completed. >>Read more about Design Build Contractors
