Builder Great Yarmouth Norfolk (NR30): There are so many construction companies and builders in and near to Great Yarmouth that it can be something of a challenge to pick the right one for your requirements. From general builders, house builders, to specialist building contractors; how do you know which one to use? To find the best Great Yarmouth builder for your precise needs, below are some useful guidance and tips.
The building contractor you employ in Great Yarmouth should be qualified, reliable and professional regardless of the size of construction project you are expecting them to complete. Friends and family are a good place to look for suggestions for a top notch builder. If your neighbours or friends have had building work done and they are satisfied with the result, then you couldn't get a better advertisement for a building company.
If you don't know anybody who can recommend a builder in Great Yarmouth then ask the industry professionals. The FMB (Federation of Master Builders) has a list of signed-up members that all come guaranteed and with an FMB insurance backed warranty as standard. This sort of peace of mind can be invaluable during a nerve-racking building project, especially when problems are encountered.
It's wise to prepare details on your building project prior to requesting a quotation from a building contractor in Great Yarmouth. A precise quote can only be made if you set out in clear detail the scope and requirements of your construction project. You could of course use your builder to oversee the planning and design of your project, but for modest building tasks it is wise to have your specifications ready when you first make contact with a building company.
If you've got architectural drawings, you should make photocopies and hand them to any Great Yarmouth builder providing a quotation, together with a detailed written summary of the work. By having such paperwork ready it establishes a defined plan which a good contractor will be able to use as a template for the undertaking. When you get your quote you should also be given a rough timescale for your building project.
Price quotes can vary considerably, however if there are one or two much lower than the rest you must get the builder to explain why this is so and to make certain that they fully understand your requirements. If they're unable to break down the costs or give a suitable answer to explain the quotation, then it might be better to look at a different building company, even if they are a little more expensive.
Once you have received all the estimates, don't be in a panic to choose a builder in Great Yarmouth; sleep on your decision and the next day go over all of the price quotes again to play it safe. Consider what's included, and more to the point, what ISN'T included in the price. Some builders may not itemise rubble and building waste removal for example. The rubble and debris from any building work should be removed and disposed of in a safe and responsible fashion, in accordance with local legislation, and this can be a costly extr outlay if it's not listed in the initial quote.
If you've a certain style or design you would like for any fittings and fixtures for your building project in Great Yarmouth, these should also be priced for on the estimate. This should be stipulated on your written summary and quoted for accordingly by the builder. If you feel uncertain about any aspect of the quotation with regard to your accessories, now is the time to raise questions and ensure you will not get any upsetting surprises once the work begins.
So, you have made your mind up, you have an estimate you are happy with and you have appointed your chosen Great Yarmouth builder. To safeguard the interests of both parties, the building contractor ought to provide you with a contract to sign before the real work begins. This should include such things as materials, specifics of fittings and fixtures, clearance of the site before work begins, as well as the doing any "snagging" during and at the conclusion of the project. The contract should declare the warranty period that you get and precisely what the builder's guarantee covers in relation to their work or/and materials used for the project.
It may also determine the payment method for the building work. Your builder may want a small deposit, however it isn't advisable to pay large cash payments up front. Payments should be made only when each stage of a project has been finished, and only when you are satisfied with the quality of the work.
At the conclusion of the project there will be a final inspection of the work involving the builder and the client to make certain all work has been completed to a good standard and a snag list compiled, if necessary. This list should be handled with a common sense approach from both parties, and should comply with the formal contract that was signed at the start of the project. A final inspection isn't used to pick fault with the standard of the work, but is done to deal with any concerns about the finished building project and the means by which to rectify them in a mutually acceptable way. When the site has been cleared of tools and materials, the snagging list has been accomplished and all work is finished, the final payment can be made.
Good communication between the builder and you is essential if you are to keep a construction project running nicely. If there's something you'd like to alter, or you see an issue developing you need to have a word with the building company as soon as possible. The longer that you leave a problem to fester, the more difficult it is for the builder to put right and setting up a good rapport from the outset is crucial.
It is entirely possible that you will be living and working closely with the building company for a period of time and on a day-to-day basis, on a larger construction project. You should always have complete understanding and trust in this case with your Great Yarmouth building contractors and their workforce. You can do this by reviewing a building company's affiliations and memberships of trade associations, and enquiring about what qualifications and experience their workforce has.
There are a number of professional associations that provide project management training, building and construction skills and hands-on building classes for all levels of personnel. Membership schemes exist through more than thirty associations highlighting individual expertise and qualifications, or to accentuate the professionalism and reliability of a building company.

The Construction Industry Council - The CIC (Construction Industry Council) is the largest of the construction industry's trade associations with more than 500,000 building professionals and approximately 25,000 construction consultants amongst its members. The vast majority of people with CIC membership have skilled and responsible roles in the construction industry, for example site managers, building company executives and technical consultants.
The Construction Skills Certification Scheme - To be permitted to work on any construction site or seek employment by a builder, an individual has to hold a card under the Construction Skills Certification Scheme (CSCS). The CSCS card gives notice of a worker's qualifications, (Diploma, NVQ, Degree and Postgraduate Degree) in the building industry along with their accreditation from the CITB Health, Safety and Environment examination.
The CSCS cards have different colours to represent the diverse qualifications and skill levels in the trade of each card holder. You can locate more information and see the different cards and roles on the CSCS website.
