I am in the process of buying a new build home. I would like to just have a basic two car garage. Just curious about price for the job. Nothing fancy just needs to be well done and match the siding of the house. Do not have the house yet just signed contract so should not be long. Probably the end of July. Thanks!

From your initial vision to final completion, excitement about a building or renovation project obviously abounds. But before you select the right Calgary contractor for your project, before the first nail is driven or you hear the sounds of saws, property owners should really slow down and make sure they have thought things through.
One of the biggest and most costly mistakes many property owners make is picking up the phone and calling a contractor without thoroughly thinking through the entire project. Without making a list of specifics, details will fall through the cracks which should have been accounted for in bids from contractors. This results in unanticipated expenses.
Also, without a detailed plan and list of "wishes", bids from those various contractors will be hard to compare. Did they all include the same things? Are they all using the same specifications? To the best of your ability you should prepare a list of measurements and things like fixtures to be used. Make sure any potential contractor receives your list and plans.
Whenever you are contemplating a building or renovation project you should anticipate permits that may be required. Fortunately Calgary has a very helpful website. It will give you a general guideline for the type of project you have in mind, what may be required and what you can do yourself.
Check out the website to avoid potential problems, and to make sure your potential contractor is including and pulling the correct permits in their bids. Download fee schedules and the Code of Conduct, which delineates all that needs to be done and what to expect during your project.
Selecting a contractor should actually be the last step you make before the construction begins, and fortunately we have made this quite easy. HandyCanadian has an extensive list of contractors in Calgary. All you have to do is type in the type of contractor you are looking for based on your project, review ratings and references, and then get a few quotes from which to select your perfect contractor.
Slow down, take things in order and your vision will turn into reality more quickly and with less expense.
