Builder Fleet Hampshire (GU51): Picking the best builder for your Fleet building project can be tricky with so many to choose from. How can you decide on which house builder, general builder or specialist building contractor to employ? To assist you in finding the best Fleet building contractor for your assignment below are some helpful advice and tips to set you on the right path.
Whatever the size of your building assignment; a basement restoration, a full house build, an extension to your house or just a new garden wall, you want a professional, reliable and qualified Fleet builder to carry out the work. Family and friends are a good place to start to look for suggestions for a quality builder. If they're happy with a builder they've used then put them on your shortlist because you'll want to get more than one quote for the work.
If there is no-one that can supply you with a good endoresement or recommendation you will have to search for a professional Fleet construction company through experts in the industry. A list of reliable and professional individual builders and companies is held by the Federation of Master Builders, who back each registered member with an insurance backed warranty and guarantees on any construction work they do. An approved FMB building company gives you the self-confidence in the knowledge that your project will be completed even if things appear to be going awry, or unanticipated delays in building occur.
Before requesting a quote from a building company in Fleet you'll want to have some details prepared in advance. A definitive quote can only be made if you lay out in detail the requirements and scope of your construction project. If it's quite a big construction project you can ask a building company to manage all stages of the work, from planning and design to the actual construction works, while smaller building work should enable you to have some ideas and designs ready and prepared to give to a builder so as to receive an accurate quote.
If you have architect's drawings, you should make copies and hand them to any Fleet builder providing an estimate, in addition to a detailed written summary of the work. By having these documents ready it establishes a defined plan which an experienced builder can use as a template for the undertaking. Together with an itemised quote the builder will also be able to establish an approximate timeline for the completion of the work.
Some Fleet builders will naturally quote a lower price than others, but you need to ask yourself how they are able to accomplish this without cutting corners or using inferior components. As a prospective client you're perfectly within your rights to request an acceptable explanation and receive a break down of cost, and if the builder is unable to provide this it might be in your best interests to look at another contractor for the task.
Once you've got all the estimates in, you shouldn't be in a rush to pick out a building company in Fleet; sleep on it and the following day you can check over all the price quotes once more to play it safe. Pay particular attention to what ISN'T included in the final price. As an example, some building companies may reduce the quote by not adding waste removal from the site at the end of the work. Any building waste has to be disposed of correctly and if it isn't included in the quotation you have been given you must ask who is liable for the clearance of the site on completion.
If you've a certain design or style you want for any fittings and fixtures for your construction project in Fleet, these should also be allowed for in the quotation. This should be stipulated on your written summary and quoted for accordingly by your builder. If you have made specified demands you may need to confirm these are replicated in the estimate.
So, you have found a quote that you're happy with and you're in a position to appoint your builder. Before any actual physical work commences the builder should prepare a contract to protect you both. This will likely include items such as; details of fittings and fixtures, clearance of the site before work begins, what materials are to be used, and there'll be a resolution for any snags or problems. The contract will set out what warranty period you may have and exactly what the guarantees from the builder cover with regards to their work or/and materials that are used for the project.
The contract should also explain when and how payments need to be made for the building work in question. It is possible you may be asked for a modest deposit, but you should never pay out any large amounts of money prior to work beginning. If you are paying for your building project in stages, you should only be asked to pay upon each stage completion, and when you are pleased with the standard of the work that's been done.
A final inspection should be carried out by the client and the builder and any items that need to be put right, or details missed throughout the building phase needs to be noted. This snagging list should pinpoint any minor issues that need rectification in keeping with the terms of the contract that was agreed by both parties before construction work started. Both parties should be accepting of the other's point of view and be ready to put forward a solution so that everybody can feel satisfied with the final result. When all work is completed, the snagging list has been done and the site has been cleared of materials and tools, the final payment can be made.
It is unfortunate that quite a few construction projects turn sour owing to poor communication between the customer and builder. If you identify an issue, or something you wish to alter during the project, chat with your builder without delay. The longer that you leave something to develop, the more difficult it is for the builders to rectify and having a good rapport from the start is vital.
You could on a day to day basis be living in close proximity and for some time with your building team if the project is a large one.
