Builder Malvern Worcestershire (WR13 and WR14): There are so many builders and construction companies in and around Malvern that it can be something of a challenge to choose the best one for your specific requirements. From general builders, house builders, to specialist building contractors; how can you possibly know which one to use? To find the best builder for your particular needs, here are some useful guidance and tips.
The builders you employ in Malvern should be professional, qualified and reliable no matter the extent of the building project you are asking them to complete. Neighbours and friends are a good place to look for suggestions and recommendations for a decent builder. If your friends or family have previously had building work undertaken and they are satisfied with how the work went, then you couldn't get a better advertisement for any building contractor.
If you don't know anyone who can recommend a building contractor in Malvern then ask the industry professionals. The FMB (Federation of Master Builders) has a database of members that all come guaranteed and with an FMB insurance endorsed warranty as standard. If anything happens to go wrong on a construction project, this peace of mind and insurance from the FMB can turn out to be crucial.
You will need to prepare a few things before asking a professional builder in Malvern for a job quote. An accurate quotation can only be prepared if you explain in detail the requirements and scope of your construction project. You ought to be able to show some designs and plans for smaller construction works, a garden wall for instance, but if it's a bigger sort of project you can ask the builder for help right from the design and planning stage right through to project management and completion.
If you have architect's drawings, you should make copies and pass them to any Malvern builders supplying a price quote, along with a detailed written summary of the work. By having this paperwork ready it establishes a defined plan which a good building contractor can use as a working template for the undertaking. When you get your quote you will usually also be given an approximated timeframe for your building project.
Quotes can differ considerably, however if there is one that is much cheaper than the rest you should ask the builder to clarify why this is so and to ensure that they have fully understood your expectations. If they are unable to give a credible answer or a break down of the costs to explain the quotation, then it might be best to look at a different building contractor, even if they are a little bit more expensive.
Before settling on which Malvern building contractor to employ have a final look over their price quotes. Consider what is included, and even more important, what isn't included in the cost. As an example, some builders may reduce the estimated costs by not including waste removal from the site when the job is completed. This must be removed and disposed of in a responsible and ethical fashion and should you discover it's not part of the estimate you need to ask why.
If you've a particular style or design you want for any fittings and fixtures for your building project in Malvern, these should be allowed for in the quotation. Given that particular designs will have to be sourced from various retailers, your written summary needs to have as much detail with regard to the accessories you've chosen, to enable the builder to present you with an exact quote. If you've made specific demands you might need to verify that these are reflected in the estimate.
When you have chosen a builder and accepted their price quote there's one further bit of paperwork to get through. Before the real work begins your builder should prepare a contract that safeguards both of you. This will very likely include items such as; what materials are to be used, clearing of the site before work commences, specific fixtures or fittings, and an entry for resolving any issues or snags. It should additionally detail any agreed warranty period and what any guarantees cover in respect of building work and materials.
If you've agreed upon a schedule and method of payment, this will also be stipulated in this contract. If you're requested to pay a deposit you must be cautious about paying large sums of cash to a builder before any construction work has actually commenced. If you're paying for your building project in phases, you should only be asked to pay as each stage is finished, and when you're pleased with the work that has been done.
At the conclusion of the project there should be a final inspection of the work involving the client and builder to ensure all construction work has been finished satisfactorily and a snag list made up, if necessary. A common sense approach is necessary by both parties when handling this list, and it should conform to the formal contract that was signed at the beginning of the project. A final inspection is not used to pick faults in the standard of the work, but is carried out to deal with any concerns about the final stage of the building project and how to rectify them. When all work is finished, the site has been cleared of materials and tools and the snagging list has been done, the final payment for the job can be made.
A good level of communication between yourself and the builder is essential if you are to keep a building project running smoothly. If there is something you want to alter, or you see an issue coming to light you need to have a word with the building company ASAP. If you've got good communication with the builder you are less inclined to wait for the "right" time to speak with them, especially as the longer a problem is left to fester, the more challenging it is to correct.
For bigger projects you need to appreciate that you will be in close dialogue with your builders for some time. You must always have complete trust and understanding in this situation with your Malvern builders and their workers. Any qualifications, accreditations and memberships held by the builders from trade organisations can help reassure you.
