A general contractor is an expert who organizes and oversees construction for homes and businesses. Depending on the state the contractor works in, they may carry a license. Some general contractors may complete construction work themselves, while others may hire subcontractors to complete construction work. General contractors often help secure construction permits, recommend finishes and materials, and find solutions for challenges that arise during construction. 

Before finding a general contractor, gather details about your project. List the spaces you are remodeling and their square footage. Do you need plumbing or wiring work? What materials will you use? Are you doing a gut renovation or a rip-and-replace? Depending on these details, you may also need an architect or interior designer. Use your project details to find an expert who has experience doing similar projects. Always work with a licensed contractor where required. Renovators can use a service like Sweeten, which matches homeowners with vetted general contractors, offering input and support, for free.
