Builder Maesteg Wales (CF34): There are so many building contractors and builders in and around Maesteg that it can be quite hard in deciding on the right one for your requirements. From general builders, specialist building contractors, to house builders; how can you possibly know which to use? To assist you in finding a building contractor for your project below are some useful tips and advice to set you on the right path.
The building contractor you use in Maesteg should be reliable, professional and qualified regardless of the extent of construction project you're expecting them to accomplish. Family and friends are a good place to get suggestions and recommendations for a top notch builder. If they are satisfied with a builder then add them to your shortlist as you'll want to get more than one estimate for the work.
If there's no-one that can give you a good recommendation or endorsement then you'll have to look for a trusted Maesteg building company via the industry experts. A list of trusted individual builders and companies is held by the Federation of Master Builders, who back each signed up member with an insurance backed warranty and guarantees on any work they do. This peace of mind can be invaluable during a stressful and nerve-racking building project, particularly when things don't go to plan.
It is shrewd to prepare details on your building project prior to asking any building company in Maesteg for a price quote. If the construction project isn't made clear, it becomes extremely difficult for any building contractor to supply you with an accurate quote. If it's quite a big building project you can ask a building contractor to manage all stages of the work, from planning and design to full construction works, whilst modest building work should enable you to have some ideas and designs to show a builder in order to get an accurate quote.
You need to make photocopies of any written design specifications and architectural drawings and give them to the Maesteg builders who you ask for a job quote. That way you're describing your exact needs right from the outset. When you receive your quotation you will usually also be given an approximated timescale for your building project.
Some Maesteg builders will naturally quote a lower price than others, but you need to ask how they're able to do this without skimping or using inferior components. As a prospective client you are perfectly within your rights to request a compelling explanation and see an itemised break down of cost, and if the builder is unable to supply this it could be in your best interests to consider a different contractor for the work.
Don't make any rash decisions when choosing a builder in Maesteg, or feel forced into going for a particular one; an excellent rule is to wait for 24 hours or so and look over each of the quotes once again. Pay particular attention to anything that's NOT included in the final price given. If there's no entry on your quotation for building waste and rubble removal, for example, you need to ask them if this will be included in the price given. All building waste must be disposed of correctly and if it is not included in the initial estimate you must ask who is responsible for the site clearance on completion.
Another element to look at is the finish, style and design of any fittings and fixtures that you require. Things like this must be stated on your original written summary and quoted for accordingly by the builder. If you feel at all uncertain about any aspect of the quotation with regard to your accessories, now is the time to raise the questions and be certain you will not get any unwanted surprises once the work starts.
So, you've made up your mind, you've got a price quote that you are happy with and you've appointed your your chosen Maesteg building contractor. A contract should now be drawn up by the building firm to set out details of the project. This could include items such as; specific fittings or fixtures, removal of building rubbish and waste, materials, and an entry for resolving any snags or problems. The contract will set out what warranty period you may have and precisely what the builder's guarantee covers with regards to their work or/and materials that are used on the project.
If you've come to an agreement on a schedule and method of payment, this should also be mentioned in this contract. If you are requested to pay a deposit you need to be wary of paying out substantial sums of money to a builder before any work has actually commenced. Installments should only be paid when each part of a project is completed, and then only when you're pleased with the quality of the work.
A final inspection will be carried out between the client and the builder and any work that needs to be corrected, or small details missed through the construction phase needs to be written down. This snag list should shine a spotlight on any small issues that need rectifying in line with the contract terms that was agreed by both sides before construction work began. A final inspection does not have the aim of picking fault with the standard of the work, but is done to address any concerns about the completed building project and how to correct them in a mutually acceptable way. Only when any snags have been put right and all work is completed to your satisfaction, should the final payment be sent to the builder.
Good communication between the builder and you is important if you are to keep a construction project running smoothly. You always need to be in a position to talk over any problems or changes in your project with the builders.. If you have good communication with your building contractor you're less likely to wait for the "right" time to talk to them, especially since the longer an issue is left to fester, the more complicated it is to rectify.
It is quite possible that you will be living and in direct contact with the building company on a day to day basis for some period of time. It's essential that you've got trust and confidence in your Maesteg building contractor and whose knowledge of the construction industry and familiarity with your kind of project is completely dependable. An immense help in achieving this is checking out their memberships, accreditations and qualifications of trade associations.
There are several professional organisations that provide construction and building skills, project management training and technical building classes for all levels of the workforce. An individual or building firm may be a member of one of the 30 schemes set up by industry frontrunners to highlight their trustworthiness, professionalism and expertise. Some of the largest construction industry schemes to watch out for are:
The Construction Skills Certification Scheme - The Construction Skills Certification Scheme is a Government recognised card which all members of the building workforce, from senior executives down to trainees, must hold in order to be able to work in the construction industry. The CSCS card shows proficiency in the CITB Health, Safety and Environment as well as showcasing the building and construction qualifications and expertise of the person.
The CSCS cards are issued in different colours to signify the diverse levels of skill and qualifications within the building trade of the card holder. More information can be found by visiting CSCS website.
The Federation of Master Builders - Countless building companies and individual contractors at all levels of expertise will have affiliation with the FMB (Federation of Master Builders), and follow their recommendations and guidelines for the building industry. The FMB doesn't only provide insurance and guarantees for the work of its membership, they also offer a useful conflict resolution service which provides impartial assistance to both builder and customer if there should be any fall-outs.
The Construction Industry Council - The Construction Industry Council is the biggest of the building industry's associations with in excess of 500,000 building professionals and over 25,000 construction consultants listed amongst its members. These represent the management and technical side of the construction industry and it is highly likely that a site manager or other executive will hold a CIC membership.
