Builder Winsford Cheshire (CW7): Picking the right builder for your Winsford construction project can prove to be quite hard with the large number to choose from. How is it possible to determine which general builder, house builder or specialist building contractor to hire? To help you out, here are some advice and tips on getting the best Winsford builder at the best price.
Whatever the extent of your building venture; a cellar restoration, a full house build, a property extension or even a garden wall, you want a reliable, professional and qualified Winsford building contractor to do the task. The first thing you could do is ask friends and neighbours for suggestions. If your friends or family have had building work completed and they are pleased with how the work went, then that is the best advertisement for a builder.
If you cannot find anybody who can recommend a building contractor in Winsford then you can ask the industry professionals. A list of reliable and professional independent builders and building companies is held by the FMB (Federation of Master Builders), who endorse each signed up member with guarantees and an insurance based warranty for any construction work that they do. If things happen to go wrong on a building project, this insurance and peace of mind from the Federation can prove priceless.
It is advisable to have details of your building project ready before you ask any building contractors in Winsford for a quotation. A precise quote can only be prepared if you explain in detail the scope and requirements of your building project. If it's a large project you could ask a building contractor to oversee all stages of the work, from management and planning to the actual construction works, while smaller building work should enable you to have some designs and ideas prepared to show a builder so as to obtain a precise quotation.
If you have any architect's drawings, you need to make copies and pass them on to any Winsford builder providing an estimate, as well as an in-depth written brief. This way you are setting out your precise needs right from the start. In addition to an itemised quotation your building contractor will also specify a rough timescale for the completion of the work.
Certain Winsford builders will usually give a lower quote than others, however you must ask yourself how they are able to achieve this without scrimping or using low quality materials. If you do not receive a satisfactory response then it may be best to give the work to an alternative building company and sidestep any possible stressful situations because of potential increasing costs as the build progresses.
Before choosing which Winsford builder to hire have one last read through of their quotations. A quote might not itemise every aspect of the build, however there ought to be a list of stages in the construction, and you're trying to identify anything that hasn't been included in the first estimation. If there is no listing on your quotation for waste removal, for instance, you must ask if this is included at no extra charge. The debris and rubble from any construction work needs to be removed and disposed of in a safe and responsible way, in keeping with local guidelines, and this can be a costly extra if it is not contained in the final quote.
You may also need to verify any fittings and fixtures you want for your project meet up with your specifications. This is something that should be clarified on your written summary given to the builder to allow him to procure the items and include them in their quotation. If the price quote doesn't stipulate your exact accessories you could wind up with a cheaper option to cut costs.
Once you've decided on a builder and accepted their quote there is one more piece of paperwork to deal with. To safeguard the interests of both parties, the building company ought to provide you with a contract to be signed before the real work starts. This should include such things as specific fittings or fixtures, responsibilities in clearing the site before work starts and on completion, what materials are to be used, and the making good of any snags during and at the end of the project. The contract should declare what warranty period you may have and what the guarantees by the builder cover with regards to their work and/or materials that are used for the project.
It might also establish the payment method for the building work. The builder might need a small deposit, but it is advised not to pay significant amounts of cash up front. If you're paying for your project in phases, you should only be asked to pay as each phase is finished, and when you're happy with the standard of the work that's been accomplished.
At the end of the project there will be a final inspection of the work involving the client and the builder to make sure all work has been completed satisfactorily and a snagging list of minor errors made up, if needed. A snagging list is a way for a builder to correct any small issues discovered at the termination of the project, and should be tackled in line with the the building contract that was agreed by both parties. As both sides carry out a final building inspection there must be a mutually acceptable agreement to the contents of the snag list and a discussion should take place as to how the faults will be remedied. When the snag list has been accomplished, the site has been cleared of materials and tools and all work is finished, the final payment for the job can be made.
It is regrettable that a lot of construction projects turn sour owing to lack of communication between the builder and customer. If you should notice an issue, or something you'd like to modify throughout the project, talk to your builder without delay. It gets far more difficult to put an issue right the longer it is left, and you will both appreciate good communication from the outset.
It is entirely possible that you'll be living and in direct contact with the building contractors on a day to day basis for a period of time. You should have complete trust and understanding in this situation with your Winsford building contractors and their personnel. You can do this by checking a building company's memberships and affiliations of professional organisations, and asking just what experience and qualifications their workers have.
There are a number of trade bodies that provide construction and building skills, project management training and technical building courses for all levels of personnel. A building firm or individual can be a member of one of the 30 or more schemes set up by industry forerunners to showcase their reliability, expertise and professionalism. The most recognised schemes to look for in the construction industry are:
The Construction Skills Certification Scheme - To be qualified to work on any building site or seek employment by a builder, an individual has to hold a card issued by Construction Skills Certification Scheme (CSCS). To attain a CSCS card an individual firstly has to pass the CITB Health, Safety and Environment test and provide written evidence of their skills and qualifications with regards to the building industry.
The CSCS cards have several different colours to exhibit the diverse levels of expertise and qualifications in the building trade of each card holder. To find out more about the CSCS scheme and the roles and responsibilities of the various coloured cards you can always visit their website.
The Federation of Master Builders - The Federation of Master Builders is the standard membership for countless building contractors, not only in Winsford, but up and down the United Kingdom. The benefits of using an FMB affiliated building company are the guarantees and reassurances that this principal organisation gives to its membership and their clients.
The Construction Industry Council - The CIC (Construction Industry Council) is the biggest of the construction industry's trade associations with more than 25,000 construction consultants and in excess of 500,000 building professionals listed amongst its members. These represent both the management and technical side of the construction industry and it's highly likely that the site manager or other similar executive will be the holder of a CIC membership.
