Construction supervision in the South of France

By in Blog with 0 Comments

Construction supervision in the South of France is an extra service provided by Living on the Cote d’Azur and is created by customer demand. Anyone looking for a reliable contractor in the South of France for maintenance, renewal, extension, extension or complete renovation of the home will enter into meetings and discussions with various parties. And no matter how beautiful the brochure is, and no matter how nice the French contractor may seem, the reality is in many cases different.

Customers tell us how their experience went: that after many negotiations, they agree to a fixed price. But after a deposit of 40%, the contractor remains silent. When they get the local contractor finally on the line, he tells that he can start with the planning after receiving the down payment. And that work will probably start next month. That is of course not the best start for a French Riviera renovation you are looking forward to.

The right contractor for every job

Living on the Cote d’Azur has therefore been offering our network for eight years with reliable contractors on the French Riviera for every type of job. For small studio renovations or simple jobs such as painting or re-tiling a bathroom, we work together with a company that is very suitable for this. If you want larger renovations and serious construction work or a completely new swimming pool, you need a different type of contractor. Naturally, all companies that we propose to you have company insurance and are certified to install or renew electricity, for example.

To follow the progress of the renovation in the South of France, our contractors open a WhatsApp group in which the progress is communicated weekly by means of photos and videos. Some customers want us in person on the spot on a weekly or two-weekly base, to see how the renovation is going. Or to make contact with other suppliers such as an interior designer, furniture or kitchen supplier or a decoration company. This construction supervision is additionally engaged by the client and serves as an extra check between the customer, contractor and other suppliers.

As a construction supervisor, we keep a close eye on whether the contractor keeps to the agreements or whether the planning is not out of step. We are also present at the consultation moments between the customer, architect, contractor and Côte d’Azur suppliers for a spa or jacuzzi. Contact with the architect is also maintained; unnecessary mistakes are prevented through clear communication and by “being on top of it”. You can also call on our construction supervision for the collection of materials during the renovation period. We relieve you on the spot if you are not in the area.

A construction supervisor is of course not only easy during the renovation, but also after work when it has been completed. What to do if there are unexpected construction problems? The construction supervisor identifies, mediates and provides a solution. The construction supervisor can visit the project on a regular basis and thus keep a close eye on the progress.
