Few things are more frustrating for clients than the not-my-problem mentality that rears its ugly head when project problems arise. Far too often, the tendency among contractors is to ask “whose responsibility is this?” rather than the more appropriate - and productive - “how do we solve this?“ R. Baker & Son subscribes to the latter school of thought.

Anyone who‘s ever been involved in a construction project is all too aware that many contractors operate under the misguided policy of taking responsibility only for what is specifically outlined in specs and drawings. When problems occur, they will engage in finger-pointing and various other unproductive tactics that serve only to stall the project and frustrate all parties involved. This is contrary to how we operate.

The Baker Team is expert in recognizing problems and remedying them before they can occur, but not all problems are avoidable. To paraphrase a famous poet, “even the best laid plans can go awry” . We approach every problem head-on and take expedient steps to correct them, with no finger-pointing, no foot-dragging, no shoulder-shrugging, and no gouging. It‘ s how we‘ve operated for nearly 80 years.
