If you get a job quote that's much cheaper than the others, take a moment to contemplate why this is and ask yourself how they would be able to work for that price without cutting corners on manpower or materials. If you do not get an acceptable response 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 proceeds.

Before choosing which Alloa building contractor to employ have a final look over their quotations. Consider what is included, and even more important, what isn't included in the cost. Certain building contractors might not itemise building waste and rubble removal as an example. Any building waste must be removed and disposed of properly and if it is not included in the quote you need to ask who is responsible for the clearance of the site on completion.

Another aspect to look at is the style, design and finish of any fixtures and fittings that you need. This should be stated on your original written summary and quoted for accordingly by your builder. If the quote doesn't stipulate your exact requirements you may wind up with a cheaper option to cut costs.

So, you have made up your mind, you have a price quote you're happy with and you have hired your chosen builder. To protect the interests of both parties, the builder ought to supply you with a contract to be signed before any physical work starts. This contract will be distinct to your building project and will deal with areas like what materials are to be used, specifics of fixtures and fittings, removal of building rubbish and waste, and what will occur if there any delays in or problems with the work. It should additionally detail any warranty period and what any guarantees cover with regards to materials and building work.

If you've agreed upon a payment method, this will be laid out in the contract. If you're asked for a deposit you must be wary of paying out significant sums of cash to any builder before the work has even begun. Installments should only be paid when each phase of a project has been finished, and then only if you are happy with the standard of the work.

A snag list of any minor faults can be gathered together during a final inspection of the completed project by the builder and client. The list should be handled with a common sense approach from both parties, and should conform to the contract that was signed at the beginning of the project. As both parties complete a final building inspection there should be a mutually acceptable agreement to the contents of the snagging list and a discussion should take place as to how any faults will be remedied. When the snagging list has been done, all work is finished and the site has been cleared of tools and materials, the final payment can be made.
