Skilled ContractorAre you looking to improve your commercial building space and make it more appealing and functional for your tenants? If so, you may want to hire a general contractor to assist with your tenant improvements. Most commercial landlords and building owners want their buildings to have quality improvements in order to increase tenant retention. Sometimes the success of a tenant’s commercial or retail space is partially determined by the willingness of a commercial landlord or building owner to improve the space through upgraded aesthetics, foolproof heating and air systems, sound structure and foundation and high quality plumbing systems. In order to ensure the best possible tenant improvements in San Luis Obispo County, rely on a professional contractor.

 

What are some common tenant improvements?

Sometimes, despite a landlord’s best intentions, a space may not be fully functional for the tenant that plans to use it. For this reason, the property owner needs to make changes to accommodate their new tenant. Investing in a new tenant is a great way to improve retention and to keep commercial space occupied.

Especially when converting an existing space, relying on a skilled contractor is more important than ever, particularly because some of the changes may include meeting specific codes and regulations. These changes may include making fire entrances, installing security features, retrofitting doors and changing walls and flooring. Experienced contractors understand how to work through local regulatory laws and can ensure your new tenant is fully up to code so they can open as quickly as possible.

How to work with a contractor

If you’re a landlord or building owner, remember that it is best to hire a general contractor who has experience in tenant improvements in San Luis Obispo County. Tenant improvements are usually contracts made between commercial tenants and their landlords. These agreements should almost always be written in the form of a legal contract in order to protect both parties involved. The costs that may accrue for the tenant should be mentioned, as well as the desired use of the facility and when the building will be ready for use. General contractors can assist in creating budgets, as well as making timelines and suggestions for space utilization and supplies.

Once a contract is firmly established, consider hiring an experienced contractor in order to fulfill the tenant improvement obligations. Hiring a contractor is an easy process, so long as you know what you are doing. Getting just any contractor off the street may lead to poor quality work, legal problems or paying too much for the work. Always read reviews before calling a company, and ask ahead about guarantees offered on the work, available references and whether they have experience in tenant improvements in San Luis Obispo County.

Before allowing any contractor to start working on your building, ensure they comply with all local laws pertaining to work permits and workplace insurance. Also consider signing a contractual agreement with the contractor to ensure the price is set and a timeline for work completion is established.
