Builder Dewsbury West Yorkshire (WF12): Choosing the best builder for your Dewsbury building project can be quite hard with the large number to select from. Do you need a house builder, a general builder or a specialist building contractor for your project, and how will you know which one to choose? To help you out, below are some tips and advice on finding the best Dewsbury builder at the best price.
It doesn't matter if you are building your own home, having an extension built, upgrading a cellar or any other project you're thinking about, your Dewsbury builders must be reliable, professional and qualified to carry out the work. Start off by asking for recommendations from friends and neighbours. If your friends or neighbours have previously had construction work done and they're satisfied with the result, then you could hardly get a better advertisement for any building contractor.
In general, the next best way to locate a trusted Dewsbury builder is to ask experts within the construction industry. You can locate independent builders and building companies who are supported by insurances and guarantees on the FMB (Federation of Master Builders) list of endorsed builders. This kind of peace of mind can be priceless during a stressful building project, especially when problems are encountered.
You will want to prepare a few things before asking a builder in Dewsbury for a job quote. They will not be able to provide a definitive price if it isn't clear exactly what you need. You ought to be able to come up with some plans and designs of modest building works, a garden wall for example, but if it's a bigger type of project you can ask the builder for assistance right from the planning and design stage and all the way through project management and completion.
Have a written brief of all your specifications along with photocopies of architectural drawings to hand over to each Dewsbury builder who provides a quote. This way you are both clear about the expected result of the task. Any quotation you receive should also come together with an estimated timeframe to complete the build.
If you are given a price quote that is substantially cheaper than the others, take a moment to consider why this might be and ask yourself how they can work for that amount without cutting corners on labour or materials. If you do not receive an acceptable response then it may be better to give the work to another building company and dodge any possible stressful situations due to potential increases in costs as the build proceeds.
Don't make a hasty decision when choosing builders in Dewsbury, or feel pushed into going for one in particular; an excellent tip is to wait for a day or so and look over all of the job quotes again. Pay particular attention to anything that's NOT included in the total price given. Some building companies may not itemise rubble and building waste removal for instance. This has to be disposed of in an ethical way and if you find that it's not part of the quotation you need to find out why.
Another item to think about is the finish, design and style of any fixtures and fittings that you need. Given that specific designs will have to be procured from different suppliers, your written brief needs to have as much detail regarding the accessories you want, to enable the builder to provide you with an accurate quote. If you have made specific demands you might need to confirm these are reflected in your estimate.
Okay, so you've found a quotation that you're happy with and you're in a position to hire your builder. A contract should now be drawn up by the building company to set out the specifics of the undertaking. This will include stuff like removal of building rubbish and waste, specific fittings or fixtures, what materials are to be used, as well as the making good of any snags during and at the end of the project. The contract will declare what warranty period you may have and what the guarantees by the builder cover with regards to their work or/and materials that are used in the project.
This contract will also explain how and when payments need to be made for the building work in question. The builder might need a deposit, however it isn't advisable to pay large cash payments in advance. Payments should be made only when each phase of a project has been finished, and then only when you are pleased with the quality of the work.
A snag list of any faults can be compiled during the final inspection of the completed project which will involve the builder and the client. The list should be tackled with a common sense approach from both sides, and should adhere to the formal contract that was agreed and signed at the beginning of the project. Each party needs to be open to the other's point of view and be ready to offer a solution so that everyone can feel pleased with the building works completion. The final payment for the job can be made once any snags have been made good, site waste has been removed (if part of the contract) and all of the work has been finished.
A good level of communication between the builder and you is crucial in order to keep a building project running nicely. If you notice an issue, or something you want to change during the project, talk to your builder immediately. It becomes far more difficult to put something right the longer it's left to fester, and you will both benefit from good communication from the outset.
It is entirely possible that you will be living and in close cooperation with your building company for a period of time and on a day-to-day basis, on a substantial construction project. You must always have complete understanding and trust in this situation with your Dewsbury building contractors and their personnel. Any memberships, accreditations and qualifications held by the building company from industry professional organisations can help give you reassurance.
