Article Summary: 

To make the process of hiring contractors easier and more cost-effective, condominiums can follow a few simple steps. Firstly, request quotations in the fall for projects planned for the following summer to benefit from contractors' best pricing. Secondly, consider lead times for materials and equipment when scheduling projects. Thirdly, factor in the time required for project design by the engineer. Fourthly, avoid peak season pricing by offering flexibility in construction start dates. Lastly, group work together to motivate qualified contractors to bid, saving time and money on administrative costs.
