The next best way to locate a respected Barrhead builder is to ask professionals within the construction industry. You can locate independent builders and building contractors who are backed by insurances and guarantees on the Federation of Master Builders list of trusted builders. If things happen to go wrong on a construction project, this insurance and peace of mind from the Federation of Master Builders can turn out to be invaluable.

Before requesting an estimate from a building firm in Barrhead you will want to have a few details prepared beforehand. A precise quote can only be made if you set out in clear detail the scope and requirements of your building project. If it's quite a large building project you can ask your building company to oversee all stages of the work, from design and management to complete construction works, whilst modest building work should give you the scope to have your own designs and ideas ready and prepared to show a contractor so as to receive an exact quote.

You should make duplicates of any architect's drawings or written design requirements and hand them over to the Barrhead builders who you ask for a quotation. By following this process you'll both be clear on the anticipated outcome of the project. As well as an itemised quotation your builder will also be able to set out a rough timescale to complete the building works.

Price quotes can vary considerably, but if there is one that is much lower than the rest you must get the builder to explain why this is the case and to make sure that they have fully understood your needs. If you do not receive an acceptable response then it might be best to give the work to an alternative building company and sidestep any possible stressful situations due to potential increasing costs as the work progresses.

Once you've received all the estimates, you shouldn't be in a rush to pick a building company in Barrhead; sleep on it and the next day you can check over all the quotes again to play it safe. You should pay special attention to anything that's NOT included in the final price. If there's no entry on your quote for waste removal, for instance, you should ask them if this will be included for no additional fee. This must be disposed of in a responsible and ethical fashion and should you discover it's not part of the quote then you should ask why.

Another aspect to think about is the style, finish and design of any fittings and fixtures that you require. Stuff like this must be specified on your written summary and accordingly quoted for by your builder. If you feel uncertain about any part of the price quote in relation to your fittings and fixtures, now is a good time to raise the questions and be sure that you will not get any unpleasant surprises during the project.

When you've picked out a suitable Barrhead building company and approved their quotation there is one further piece of paperwork to get through. To protect the interests of both parties, the building company should provide you with a written contract to be signed before the real work commences. This will include things like clearing of the site before work begins (theirs or your responsibility), specific fixtures or fittings, materials, as well as the making good of any snags during and at the end of the project. The contract will state what warranty period you may have and what the builder's guarantee covers with regards to their work and/or materials used on the project.

This contract will also stipulate when and how payments need to be made for the construction work in question. The builder may ask for a small deposit, although it is advised not to pay substantial cash payments up front. If you are paying for your project in phases, you should only pay as each stage is finished, and when you're pleased with the standard of the work that has been accomplished.

A final inspection will be made by the client and the builder and any work that needs to be corrected, or stuff overlooked during the construction stage needs to be noted. A snagging list is a means by which a builder can correct any minor issues found at the end of the project, and should be in accordance with the signed contract between both sides. As both sides complete a final inspection there must be a mutual agreement to the contents of the snag list and explanations on how to rectify any faults raised. Only when all work is finished to your satisfaction and any snags rectified, should the final payment be given to the builder.

It is a sad fact that some construction projects go bad owing to lack of communication between the client and builder. If there is something you wish to change, or you see a problem coming to light you should have a word with the building contractor ASAP. The longer that you leave an issue to develop, the more difficult it is for the builder to rectify and establishing a good relationship from the start is important.

You could on a daily basis be living in close contact and for some time with your building team if the construction project is a substantial one. Having trust and confidence in the builder's experience, skills and qualifications can mean that this extra stress is a little bit easier to deal with. An immense help in achieving this can be gained by reviewing their memberships, qualifications and accreditations of professional organisations.

There are several trade bodies that provide project management training, building and construction skills and technical, hands-on building classes for workers at every level. A building company or individual builder can be a member of one of the 30 schemes established by industry frontrunners to shine a light on their professionalism, dependability and skills. The most common membership schemes to watch out for within the construction industry are:

The Federation of Master Builders - Numerous individual contractors and building companies at all skill levels have an affiliation with the Federation of Master Builders, and follow their recommendations and guidelines for the construction industry. The FMB doesn't just provide insurance and guarantees for its members work, they also supply a useful dispute resolution service which provides unbiased assistance to both builder and client if there should be any serious arguments.
