Builder Aberdare Wales (CF44): With such a diversity of building contractors and construction companies to choose from in the Aberdare area, it can be a hard choice in picking the right one for your building project. From general builders, specialist building contractors, to house builders; how can you possibly know which to use? To find the best Aberdare builder for your particular needs, below are some helpful advice and tips.
Whatever the extent of your building project; a complete house build, a cellar restoration, a property extension or just a new garden wall, you want a reliable, professional and qualified Aberdare builder to carry out the job. For starters you can try asking for recommendations from neighbours and friends. A builder who has good "by word of mouth" recommendations is one you should add to your shortlist of possible companies to ask for a quote.
If you can't find anybody who can recommend a builder in Aberdare then you could ask the professionals. You are able to find independent builders and building contractors who are covered by insurances and guarantees on the Federation of Master Builders list of trusted contractors. When things go wrong on a building project, this reassurance from the Federation can prove to be crucial.
You'll need to prepare a few things before asking a builder in Aberdare for a quote. They won't be able to provide an accurate price if it's not crystal clear precisely what you need. If it's a big undertaking you could ask your building contractor to supervise every stage of the work, from planning and design to the actual construction, while smaller building tasks should enable you to have some ideas and designs to show a contractor in order to get an exact quote.
You should make copies of any written design specifications and architect's drawings and hand them over to the Aberdare builders who you need to get an estimate from. This way you are both clear on the envisioned result of your project. When you get your quote you will usually also be given an approximated timescale for your project.
If you get an estimate which is much cheaper than the rest, take some time to contemplate why this is and ask yourself how they can do the job for that price without corner-cutting on materials or manpower. If they're unable to give a compelling answer or break down the costs to explain the quotation, then it may be advisable to consider a different building contractor, even if they are a little more expensive.
Once you've got all the estimates in, you shouldn't be in a panic to pick out a building company in Aberdare; sleep on it and the next day you can double check all the job quotes once more to be on the safe side. Look at what's included, and more to the point, what ISN'T included in the price. Some builders might not itemise rubble and building waste removal for example. Any building waste has to be removed and disposed of correctly and if it's not included in the initial estimate you must ask who's responsible for the clean-up of the site on completion.
Another thing to look at is the style, finish and design of any fixtures and fittings that you might need. This is an issue that must be clarified on your written brief that is given to the builders to allow them to procure these accessories and make sure that they're included in the quotation. Should you feel at all unsure about any aspect of the quote in relation to your fittings and fixtures, this is the time to raise questions and make certain you won't have any unpleasant surprises once the work begins.
When you have settled on a suitable Aberdare building contractor and accepted their quotation there's one more bit of paperwork to get through. Before the real work starts your builder should draw up a contract that safeguards you both. This will very likely include points such as; what materials are to be used, responsibilities in clearing the site before work commences and after completion, specifics of fittings and fixtures, and there'll be a resolution for any snags or issues. The contract should set out what warranty period you may have and exactly what the builder's guarantee covers in relation to their work and/or materials that are used in the project.
It may also determine the methods of payment for the project. If you're requested to pay a deposit you need to be cautious about paying out large amounts of money to any builder before work commences. Installments should only be paid when each stage of a building project is completed, and only when you are happy with the standard of the work.
A final inspection should be made between the client and builder and any items that need to be corrected, or small details missed through the construction phase should be written down. This list should be tackled with a common sense approach from both parties, and should conform to the formal contract that was signed at the start of the project. As both parties complete a final inspection there should be a mutually acceptable agreement to the snag list and a discussion should take place as to how the faults will be corrected. The final payment for the job should be made when site waste has been cleared (if part of the contract), any snags have been rectified and all work has been completed.
It is unfortunate that quite a few building projects turn sour due to poor communication between customer and builder. You need to be ready to discuss any changes in or problems with your project with your building contractor, and you must do this the minute something occurs. If you've got good communication with your builders you're less likely to wait for the "right" time to talk to them, particularly since the longer an issue is left unresolved, the harder it is to put right.
It is possible that you will be living and in close collaboration with your building company for a period of time and on a day-to-day basis. It is crucial that you have trust and confidence in your Aberdare builder and whose understanding of the building trade and experience in your sort of project is totally reliable. An immense help in achieving this is by researching their memberships, qualifications and accreditations of trade organisations.
Within the construction industry there are plenty of qualifications for hands-on training, project management and other construction related help from a range of different professional bodies and associations. There are likewise more than 30 trade associations with membership schemes to highlight the professionalism and expertise of building companies and individual builders. The most widely recognised of these schemes to watch out for in the construction industry are:

The vast majority of those individuals with CIC membership have responsible and skilled roles in the construction industry, for example designers, technical consultants and site agents.
The Federation of Master Builders - The FMB (Federation of Master Builders) is the de-facto membership for many building contractors, not just in Aberdare, but right across the UK. FMB members can provide insurance for any building work they carry out and also offer conflict resolution to find a satisfactory outcome for both contractor and customer in the event of any disagreements.
The Construction Skills Certification Scheme - To be able to work on any building site or be employed by a building company, an individual must hold a card issued by Construction Skills Certification Scheme (CSCS).
