What is Contractor?

A contractor is a person or company that is hired to perform construction, repair, or remodeling work on a property. A contractor may be responsible for managing the project, hiring and supervising subcontractors, and ensuring that the work is completed to the required standards. Contractors may specialize in a particular type of work, such as electrical, plumbing, or carpentry, or they may be a general contractor who manages all aspects of a construction project.
