At the heart of any remodeling project, exists the licensed general contractor. They head your build, no matter how large or small, like the captain of a ship and at Total Renovations, we can promise you, you’d be lost without them.

Many Vancouver clients pursuing a renovation don’t immediately take into account the importance of a general construction contractor, but upon completion of the job, they’d never consider moving forward with another build without theirs.

The goal of a professional general contractor is to build trust between themselves and their client to move forward together and complete a flawless build.


The advantages of hiring a licensed general contractor are many. Going into a home remodeling project on your own without their support, is like starting a business alone. You may start out alright, and maybe you’ll get through it just fine, but you’ll have infinitely more work and will likely get in over your head.

Consider the following before making a decision to move forward without a contractor.


Having completed hundreds of successful builds, a building contractor knows how to plan a project from beginning to end. They can plan for any possible issues that might arise, and deal with them accordingly.


At Total Renovations our contractors come with an established crew they’ve been working with for years. Generally, this team is enough to get through any job but should they need to hire subcontractors, they know who to speak to and will never hire someone unreliable.


Once you lay out your basic plan for the renovation, your contractor will take care of everything else. They’ll check in with you on a regular basis, but things like paperwork, inspections, hiring and material purchasing will all fall on their capable shoulders.


A general construction contractor has a wealth of knowledge in their industry. There’s only so much someone can research online, but when you’ve been working hands-on for years, you’ll have next-level capability. Ask your contractor for anything during your build, and get the information you need immediately.


Yes, hiring a contractor will save you in the long-run. Working with unreliable subcontractors and attempting to manage a build on your own right out the gate may feel like a great accomplishment in the end, but it’s not guaranteed everything will have been done properly, and you will only have yourself to hold responsible when it comes to fixing aspects of the reno.

Our Vancouver clients have never regretted working with our experienced construction contractors. Just come meet with any of our team members and see how they can benefit you.


When you hire a general contractor, you are hiring a professional builder, planner and manager, with the knowledge and skill to carry out any renovation the way you want it.

They will always work within your timeline and budget, and keep you in the loop without adding stress to your already busy life.
