3 Reasons to Hire a Local Contractor for Your Luxury Residential Build

When embarking on a luxury residential build in Pinecrest or any of these other top neighborhoods for renovation and construction in SoFla, one of the most important decisions you’ll make is choosing the right contractor for the job. While there are many capable builders, we believe opting for a local design-build contractor offers distinct advantages that can significantly impact the success and outcome of your project. Here are three such reasons.

  1. Familiarity with local permitting rules and regulations – One of the ways your contractor works with you to ensure the timely completion of your project is to make sure the permitting process goes seamlessly. As your on-the-ground experts, your local contractor will be familiar with all the unique building, political, and economic demands of your area, and here in Miami, there are many. Depending on which county or municipality your property resides, the permit requirements will vary.

  1. Established relationships – Like elsewhere across the country, South Florida is experiencing a skilled labor shortage, which is translating to increased construction costs and greater demand for specialty labor workers. The best subcontractors are running tight schedules and will only choose to partner with trusted GCs they can count on. Local firms have these established relationships and also understand the value of securing the right subcontractors for each job.

  1. A better understanding of local climate and environmental conditions – Our buildings in Miami must be built differently than custom homes in other parts of the country or they won’t be able to withstand the year-round climate and conditions we face. Local contractors know this and incorporate this at every phase of the project, especially during pre-construction.

Overall, working with a local contractor in Miami can provide several benefits for your construction project. Be sure to choose a contractor with a good reputation and experience in the specific type of construction you need and don’t forget to talk to references.
