Q: How long have you been in business?
A: Started Business 1988 out of our home. The years following, Bruce's built and opened a new 6,000 sq. ft. shop with 2,000 sq. ft. of office space on July 23 1999. The construction company continues serve the Southeast Texas area & to grow.

Q: Have you ever done a project like this one, if so tell me about it?
A: With years of experience under our belts, Bruce's General Construction Inc. is happy to provide all of these answers, and provide references if need be.

Q: Do you have insurance?
A: Yes we are Bonded and Insured. The last thing you want is a contractor to be working on your property, only to find out they don't have the proper insurance or aren't licensed to do the work, because if something goes wrong or someone is hurt at a work site, you could be held liable for the damages. Make sure that the general contractor you choose has ample worker's compensation, property damage, and personal liability coverage.

Q: What if a permit is needed for the job?
A: If a permit is required for your project, we will obtain the permit, handle all inspections, make sure everything is built to code, and that the project and process satisfies all requirements to the letter of the law.

Q: What should I be asking my contractor?
A: A few key questions to ask could be: ?How long have you been in business??, ?Have you ever done a project like this one, if so tell me about it??, ?Do you have insurance??, ?Who does the work; you, your employees, or is the project completely done by sub-contractors?? With years of experience under our belts, General Contractor Inc is happy to provide all of these answers, and provide references if need be.

Q: What about materials?
A: Important materials are specified in the contract. All materials are covered, however, as substitutions are sometimes unavoidable (lots of bricks run out, for example, colors of materials are sometimes no longer made), we make it clear that an equal substitution will be made but only upon your approval. For items such as lighting fixtures or doorknobs that you have not chosen when the contract is signed, a budget is determined in the contract to cover exactly what will be spent on them.

Q: How close do you stay to time lines and budgets?
A: The budget and a reasonable time frame are stated in the contract, which is signed by all parties with copies provided before break ground or start any project. We produce a good finished project, but you can check with our references and you can see for yourself if it's not due to nature or outside forces, we do what we say, when we say.
