Builder Wythall Worcestershire (B47): Choosing the best builder for your Wythall based construction project can be hard with so many to choose from. From house builders, specialist building contractors, to general builders; how can you possibly know which one to pick? To find the best builder for your precise needs, here are some useful advice and tips.
Whatever the extent of your building project; a property extension, a loft conversion, a full house build or even a garden wall, you want a reliable, professional and qualified Wythall building contractor to do the work. The first thing you could do is ask friends and family for recommendations. If they're happy with a builder they've used then add them to your shortlist as you will need to get more than one quotation for the job.
If you can't find anyone who can endorse or recommend a builder in Wythall then you could ask the industry professionals. A list of reliable and professional builders and building companies is held by the Federation of Master Builders, who back each registered member with an insurance backed warranty and guarantees on any construction work they do. This peace of mind can be priceless during a stressful building project, particularly when problems are encountered.
It's advisable to have details about your building project ready prior to asking any building company in Wythall for a price quote. They will not be able to provide a definitive price if it isn't clear precisely what you want. If it's a big building project you can ask a building contractor to oversee every stage of the work, from management and design to complete construction works, while modest building work should enable you to have some ideas and designs to show a contractor so as to receive a precise quotation.
You should make duplicates of any architect's drawings or written design requirements and give them to any Wythall builders you ask for a quote. By having these documents ready it sets out a defined plan which a reputable building contractor will be able to use as a template for the project. Any quotation you get will also come with an estimated timeframe for the completion of the build.
If you are given a quote that is substantially cheaper than the others, take some time to consider how this can be and ask how they would be able to do the job for that amount without taking shortcuts on materials or labour. If you do not receive an acceptable response then it might be safer to move on to another builder and avoid potential problems and stress resulting from possible increases in costs as the work progresses.
Before picking out which Wythall builder to employ have one last look over their estimates. You need to pay special attention to anything that's NOT included in the final price offered. Some building contractors might not itemise rubble and building waste removal as an example. The rubble and debris from any construction work must be disposed of in a safe and responsible way, in accordance with local guidelines, and this can be a rather expensive extr outlay if it isn't listed in the final quote.
Another item to look at is the design, style and finish of any fixtures and fittings that you require. This should be stated on your written brief and quoted for accordingly by your builder. If you've made specified demands you may need to confirm these are replicated in your quote.
So, you have made your mind up, you've got an estimate you're satisfied with and you have hired your chosen Wythall builder. A contract should now be drafted by the builder to specify the specifics of the work. This will likely include points such as; what materials are to be used, specific fixtures or fittings, removal of building waste and rubbish, and there should also be a resolution for any snags or issues. It should in addition give details of any warranty period and what the guarantee covers in respect of construction work and materials.
This contract will also explain how and when payments should be made for the building work in question. The builder may ask for a deposit, although it is not advisable to pay large amounts of money in advance. Bigger construction projects are normally paid for in stages, and you will pay on completion of each stage and only when you're happy that the stage has been accomplished successfully.
A snag list of any minor faults can be gathered together during a final inspection of the finished project by the client and the builder. A snagging list is a way for a builder to correct any minor problems discovered at the end of the project, and should be in accordance with the signed contract between both parties. As both sides carry out a final building inspection there needs to be a mutual agreement to any snag list and explanations on how to correct any faults discussed. When all work is completed, the snag list has been done and the site has been cleared of materials and tools, the final payment can be made.
Good communication between you and the builder is vital in order to keep a building project running nicely. If there is something you want to alter, or you see an issue coming to light you should talk to the building contractor as soon as possible. If you've got good communication with your builder you are less inclined to wait for the "right" time to speak to them, particularly since the longer a problem is left, the harder it is to put right.
You could on a daily basis be living in close contact with your building team for some time if the project is a large one. Having confidence and trust in the builder's skills, experience and qualifications can mean that this extra stress is a little bit easier to deal with. You can achieve this by investigating your builder's memberships and affiliations of trade organisations, and enquiring about exactly what experience and qualifications their workforce has.
There are quite a few trade organisations that provide construction and building skills, project management training and hands-on building courses for all levels of the workforce. There are membership schemes provided by over thirty trade organisations to put the spotlight on individual skills and qualifications, or to showcase the reliability and professionalism of a building company. The most widely acknowledged schemes to watch out for within the building industry are:
The Federation of Master Builders - Countless building companies and individual contractors at all levels of expertise are affiliated with the Federation of Master Builders (FMB), and follow their guidelines and recommendations for the construction industry. FMB members are able to offer insurance cover for any construction work they do and also offer dispute resolution to find an acceptable outcome for both contractor and client in case of any disagreement.
The Construction Industry Council - The Construction Industry Council is the largest of the building industry's trade organisations with in excess of 500,000 building professionals and over 25,000 construction consultants listed amongst its members. The vast majority of people with CIC membership hold skilled and responsible roles in the construction industry, for example technical consultants, building site managers and building company executives.
The Construction Skills Certification Scheme - The CSCS (Construction Skills Certification Scheme) is a Government backed card which all members of the building workforce, from senior executives down to apprentices, must hold in order to be able to work in the construction industry. The CSCS card shows competence in the CITB's Health, Safety and Environment test in addition to illustrating the building and construction expertise and qualifications of the person.
The variously coloured CSCS cards instantly display the level of ability and responsibility that the person has. You will be able to locate more information and see the various different cards and roles on the CSCS website.
