Builder Tipton West Midlands (DY4): There are such a lot of builders and construction companies in and near to Tipton that it can be hard in picking out the right one for your requirements. Do you need a house builder, a specialist in one form of construction skills or just a general builder for your project, and how will you know which to choose? To help you out, here are some advice and tips on finding the best building company at a decent price.
It matters not if you're building your own home, getting an extension built, redesigning a basement or some other project, your Tipton builder must be professional, reliable and qualified to carry out the task. Friends and neighbours are a good place to look for suggestions for a quality builder. If your friends or family have had construction work done and they are pleased with how the work went, then you could hardly get a more resounding advertisement for any builder.
If there's no-one that can offer you a decent recommendation or endorsement then you'll need to search for a reliable Tipton builder via the experts in the industry. The Federation of Master Builders (FMB) holds a database of members that come with a guarantee and an FMB insurance supported warranty as standard. When things go wrong on a building project, this insurance and peace of mind from the FMB can prove vital.
You will want to prepare a few things before asking a builder in Tipton for an estimate. They won't be able to come up with a definitive price if it isn't clear exactly what you want. You could of course use your builder to oversee the design and planning of your project, but for more modest building tasks it's best to have your details ready and prepared when you first contact a building contractor.
Have a written summary of your specifications as well as copies of architectural drawings to give to all Tipton builders who are producing an estimate. By having these documents ready it sets out a precise plan which a good contractor can use as a working template for the project. Any estimate you get will usually also come together with an estimated timescale to complete the build.
If you are given a price quote which is a lot cheaper than the others, take some time to contemplate why this might be and ask yourself how they can work for that amount without scrimping on materials or labour. If you don't get a satisfactory response then it might be safer to give the work to another builder and sidestep potential stresses and problems because of possible increases in costs as the work progresses.
Don't make any rash decisions in choosing builders in Tipton, or feel forced into picking a particular one; an excellent rule is to wait for a day or so and read through each of the quotes once more. Consider what's included, and even more important, what isn't included in the price. If there's no listing on your quote for rubble and building waste removal, for instance, you need to ask them if this will be included in the price. The rubble and debris from any construction work should be removed and disposed of in a safe and ethical way, in accordance with local guidelines, and this can be a rather expensive extr outlay if it is not included in the final quote.
Another aspect to think about is the style, finish and design of any fixtures and fittings that you need. This is an issue that needs to be clarified on your written brief given to the builders to allow them to source the items and make sure they're included in the quote. If you've made specified demands you might need to confirm these are replicated in the quotation.
So, you've come to a decision, you've got a job quote that you're satisfied with and you've appointed your chosen Tipton builder. To safeguard both parties' interests, the building contractor ought to supply you with a contract to be signed before the real work starts. This will include stuff like the materials to be used and where to store them on site, clearing of the site before work begins (yours or their responsibility), specific fittings or fixtures, and the doing any "snagging" during and at the conclusion of the project. It should additionally give details of any agreed warranty period and what any guarantees cover with regards to materials and building work.
It could also set out the schedule of payment for the project. If you're requested to pay a deposit you should be cautious about paying significant sums of cash to any builder before work begins. Bigger building projects are normally paid for in phases, and you'll only pay on the completion of each stage when you are happy that the stage has been accomplished successfully.
At the end of any project there should be a final inspection of the work involving the client and the builder to make sure that all work has been finished to a good standard and a snag list of minor faults made up, if needed. A snagging list is a means by which a builder can rectify any minor problems discovered at the termination of the project, and should be sorted out in line with the signed building contract between both parties. As both parties carry out a final building inspection there should be a mutual agreement to the contents of the snagging list and a discussion should take place as to how the faults will be rectified. The final payment for the job can be made when any snags have been made good, all the work has been finished and site waste has been cleared (if part of the contract).
Good communication between you and the builder is vital if you are to keep a building project running smoothly. If you happen to identify a problem, or something you wish to change during the project, chat with your builder straight away. It becomes much more difficult to correct a problem the longer it's left, and you'll both benefit from good lines of communication from the outset.
It is entirely possible that you'll be living and working closely with your building company for a period of time and on a day-to-day basis, on a larger construction project. You must always have complete trust and understanding in this case with your Tipton building contractors and their workforce. Any accreditations, qualifications and memberships held by the building company from industry professional organisations can help give you peace of mind.
There are many bodies and organisations that provide project management training, building and construction skills and hands-on building courses for workers at every level. A building company or individual builder may be a member of one of the 30 schemes that have been set up by industry forerunners to highlight their professionalism, skills and reliability. Trade bodies that are held in good regard in the building trade are:
The Construction Skills Certification Scheme - The CSCS (Construction Skills Certification Scheme) is a Government endorsed card which all members of the building workforce, from senior executives down to trainees, must hold in order to work in the construction industry. To attain a CSCS card an individual firstly has to pass the CITB Health, Safety and Environment test and provide documentary evidence of their qualifications and expertise in relation to the building and construction industry.
There are a number of variously coloured cards issued by the CSCS scheme, with each colour identifying a different qualification or ability level of the holder. You will be able to locate more information and facts and see the different cards and roles on the CSCS website.
The Construction Industry Council - With over 25,000 construction consultants and over 500,000 building professionals among its membership, the Construction Industry Council is the largest professional organisation within the building industry. These represent the management and technical side of the construction industry and it's likely a site manager or other executive will be the holder of a CIC membership.
The Federation of Master Builders - Many building companies and individual contractors of all skill levels have an affiliation with the FMB (Federation of Master Builders), and follow their recommendations and guidelines for the construction industry. FMB members can provide insurance cover for any work they carry out and also provide conflict resolution to find a satisfactory outcome for both customer and contractor in case of any disagreements.
