If you don't know anybody who can endorse a builder in Bearsted then you could ask the professionals. You can find professional individual builders and companies who are covered by insurances and guarantees on the Federation of Master Builders (FMB) list of trusted contractors. This reassurance can be crucial during a stressful and nerve-racking construction project, particularly when things don't go to plan.

You will want to get a few things prepared before asking a professional builder in Bearsted for a quotation. A precise quote can only be put together if you set out in detail the scope and requirements of your building project. If it's a big project you can ask your building company to oversee all stages of the work, from management and planning to full construction, while modest building work should enable you to have some designs and ideas to show a contractor so as to receive an accurate quotation.

If you have architect's drawings, you need to make photocopies and give them to any Bearsted builder providing a quotation, together with a detailed written summary of the work. This way you are both clear about the envisioned outcome of the task. Any estimate you get will usually also come with an estimated timeline for the completion of the build.

If you get a quotation that's significantly cheaper than the rest, take some time to consider how this can be and ask how they would be able to work for that price level without corner-cutting on labour or materials. If they're unable to break down the costs or give a convincing answer to explain the quote, then it may be best to consider a different builder, even if they are somewhat more expensive.

Before picking out which Bearsted builder to use have a final look over their job quotes. Consider what's included in the price, and more importantly what isn't included. Certain building companies may not itemise building waste and rubble removal for example. Any building waste must be removed and disposed of correctly and if it's not included in the quote you need to ask who is responsible for the site clearance on completion.

Another element to consider is the style, design and finish of any fixtures and fittings that you require. Given that certain designs will need to be sourced from various retailers, your written brief needs to have as much detail regarding the fittings you want, to allow the builder the information to provide you with a totally accurate quote. If the price quote doesn't stipulate your specifications you could finish up with a substandard option being used to reduce costs.

When you have picked out a builder and agreed on their estimate there's one further piece of paperwork to get through. To secure both parties' interests, the building company should supply you with a contract to sign before the real work begins. This will include things like specifics of fixtures and fittings, what materials are to be used, clearance of the site before work starts, as well as the making good of any snags during and at the end of the project. It should in addition detail any warranty period and what any guarantees cover in regard to materials and construction work.

It could also determine the methods of payment for the building work. It is entirely possible that you may be asked for a modest deposit, but don't pay any substantial amounts of money prior to work commencing. Payments should be made only when each phase of a building project has been finished, and only if you are happy with the quality of the work.

A final inspection should be carried out between the builder and the client and any work that needs to be put right, or things missed through the building stage should be documented. A snag list is a means by which a builder can fix any minor problems discovered at the end of the project, and should be in accordance with the signed contract between both parties. Both sides need to be open to the other's viewpoint and be prepared to offer a solution in order that everyone can feel happy with the final outcome. When the site has been cleared of materials and tools, all work is finished and the snagging list has been accomplished, the final payment for the job can be made.

It is regrettable that quite a few building projects turn bad owing to a lack of communication between builder and client. You need to be prepared to talk over any changes in or problems with your project with the building contractor, and you should do so as soon as something crops up.
