Builder Sunninghill Berkshire (SL5): Picking out the best builder for your Sunninghill based building project can be difficult with the large number to select from. Do you need a house builder, a specialist in one form of construction skills or just a general builder for your project, and how should you go about choosing? To find the right Sunninghill builder for your particular needs, below are some helpful tips and advice.
Whatever the size of your building project; a loft conversion, a complete house build, a property extension or just a new garden wall, you want a qualified, reliable and professional Sunninghill building contractor to do the job. Friends and neighbours are a good place to start to get recommendations for a good builder. If they are pleased with a builder they've used then put them on your list because you'll need to get more than one estimate for the task.
If you don't know anyone who can endorse a building company in Sunninghill then you can ask the industry professionals. You are able to locate builders and building companies who are covered by insurances and guarantees on the Federation of Master Builders (FMB) list of trusted companies. This reassurance can be invaluable during a stressful and nerve-racking construction project, especially when things can sometimes not go to plan.
Before asking a building company in Sunninghill for an estimate you'll need to have certain details prepared in advance. A definitive quotation can only be made if you explain in detail the requirements and scope of your building project. If it's quite a large building project you can ask your building contractor to supervise every stage, from design and management to full construction works, whilst smaller building work should give you the scope to have your own designs and ideas to show a contractor in order to get an exact quote.
You should have a written summary of all your specifications along with copies of architect's drawings to hand over to all Sunninghill builders who are supplying an estimate. By having this paperwork ready it sets out a defined plan which a reputable contractor can use as a working template for the project. When you get your quotation you should also be given an approximate timeframe for your building project.
Quotations can fluctuate significantly, but if there is one that is much cheaper than the others you should ask the builder to clarify why this is the case and to make sure that they fully understand your needs. If they cannot give an acceptable answer or a break down of the costs to explain the quote, then it may be wise to look at a different building company, even if they are a bit more expensive.
Do not make any hasty decisions in choosing builders in Sunninghill, or feel compelled into going for one in particular; a great tip is to wait for 24 hours and look over each of the quotes once more. You need to pay particular attention to anything that's NOT included in the total price. Certain building contractors might not itemise rubble and building waste removal for example. All building waste must be disposed of correctly and if it's not included in the quote you have been presented with you have to ask who's responsible for the site clean-up on completion.
If you have a specific style or design you would like for any fittings and fixtures for your construction project in Sunninghill, these should also be included and highlighted the estimate. This is something that needs to be transparent on your written summary that is given to the builder to allow him to source the items and make certain they're included in the estimate. Should you feel uncertain about any element of the quote in relation to your fixtures and fittings, now is a good time to raise questions and make sure that you won't have any unwanted surprises once the building work commences.
So, you have made up your mind, you've got a price quote you're happy with and you have gone ahead and hired your your chosen Sunninghill building contractor. A contract should be drawn up by the building firm to lay down details of the work. This will include things like the materials to be used and where to store them on site, specific fixtures or fittings, clearing of the site before work begins (theirs or your responsibility), as well as the doing any "snagging" during and at the end of the project. It should in addition give details of any agreed warranty period and what the guarantee covers in regards to construction work and materials.
This contract will also specify how and when payments should be made for the work in question. If you are asked for a deposit you should be wary of paying large sums of money to a builder before any construction work has actually commenced. If you're paying for your building project in stages, you should only pay as each stage is completed, and when you're satisfied with the standard of the work that has been done.
A snag list of any small faults can be compiled during a final inspection of the finished project which will involve the client and the builder. This snagging list should point out any minor issues that need rectifying in keeping with the terms of the contract that was signed by both sides before construction work began. Both sides need to be accepting of the other's viewpoint and be willing to offer a solution in order that everybody can feel satisfied with the final outcome. When the snagging list has been accomplished, all work is completed and the site has been cleared of materials and tools, the final payment for the job can be made.
It is a sad fact that a lot of construction projects go wrong because of poor communication between customer and builder. If there is something you want to change, or you see a problem developing you need to have a word with the building contractor ASAP. If you have a good line of communication with the building contractor you are less likely to wait for the "right" time to talk to them, particularly since the longer a problem is left unresolved, the more challenging it is to put right.
You may be living in close contact on a day to day basis and for some time with your building team if the construction project is a substantial one. It's vital that you've got confidence and trust in your Sunninghill builder and whose understanding of the building trade and familiarity with your sort of project is completely dependable. Any qualifications, memberships and accreditations held by your builder from trade organisations can help reassure you.
There are many trade bodies that offer project management training, construction and building skills and hands-on building courses for workers at every level. A building company or individual can be a member of one of the thirty or more schemes that have been established by industry frontrunners to put the spotlight on their professionalism, expertise and trustworthiness. Some of the most important construction industry schemes to keep an eye out for are:

There are a number of different coloured cards in the CSCS scheme, with each identifying a different qualification or skill level of the holder. You will be able to discover more information and see the different cards and roles on the CSCS website.
The Construction Industry Council - The CIC (Construction Industry Council) is the biggest of the construction industry's trade associations with in excess of 500,000 building professionals and more than 25,000 construction consultants listed amongst its members. These represent both the technical and management side of the construction industry and it's highly likely that a site manager or other similar executive will hold a CIC membership.
