Builder Blackheath West Midlands (B65): With such a diversity of builders and contractors to select from in the Blackheath area, it can be a difficult choice in picking the best one for your building project. How can you possibly decide on which house builder, specialist building contractor or general builder to employ? To help you out, here are some guidance and tips on getting the best Blackheath builder at the best price.
The building company you use in Blackheath should be reliable, qualified and professional regardless of the extent of the building project you are asking them to complete. Start off by asking for recommendations from friends and neighbours. If your friends or family have had construction work completed and they're pleased with how the work went, then that is the best advertisement for a building company.
If you can't find anybody who can recommend a builder in Blackheath then you could ask the industry professionals. The Federation of Master Builders (FMB) holds a list of registered members that all come with a guarantee and an FMB insurance endorsed warranty as standard. If anything happens to go wrong on a construction project, this reassurance from the FMB can prove vital.
Before requesting a quotation from a building firm in Blackheath you will need to have a few details prepared in advance. A definitive quote can only be made if you set out in detail the scope and requirements of your building project. You of course could use your builder to oversee the management and design of the project, but for modest building jobs it's wise to have your details prepared when you first make contact with a building company.
You need to make duplicates of any written design requirements and architectural drawings and pass them on to any Blackheath builders who you ask for an estimate. By having these documents ready it establishes a defined plan which an experienced building contractor can use as a template for the job. When you obtain your quotation you should also be handed an approximated timeline for the building project.
Certain Blackheath builders will typically quote a lower price than the others, but you need to ask how they're able to do this without scrimping or using inferior materials. If you don't get a satisfactory response then it may be safer to move on to a different builder and avoid potential problems and stress because of possible escalating costs costs as the build progresses.
Before deciding upon which Blackheath building contractor to use have one last read through of their price quotes. Assess what's included, and more importantly, what ISN'T included in the price. If there's no listing on your quote for rubble and building waste removal, for example, you should ask if this is included at no extra charge. All building waste must be removed and disposed of correctly and if it's not included in the quote you have to ask who's liable for the site clean-up on completion.
You may also need to confirm any fixtures and fittings you want for your project match up to your exact specifications. Stuff like this must be stipulated on your original written summary and accordingly quoted for by the builder. If you've made specific demands you might need to confirm these are reflected in the quotation.
Okay, so you have found a quotation you're happy with and you're now ready to appoint your builder. A contract should now be drafted by the building firm to specify details of the project. This contract should be distinct to your project and will list things like specific fixtures or fittings, responsibilities in clearing the site before work commences and on completion, what materials are to be used, and what will be done if there any problems or delays in the project. There should additionally be reference to the guarantee and warranty period of the work involved.
If you've agreed upon a payment method, this will be stipulated in this contract, or your builder will discuss when and how any payments are completed. It is possible that you could be asked for a modest deposit, but you should never pay any significant sums of money before work commences. Installments should only be paid when each part of a project has been finished, and only if you are satisfied with the work.
A snag list of any minor faults can be done during the final inspection of the completed project by the builder and client. A common sense approach is needed by both sides when managing this list, and it should adhere to the contract that was agreed and signed at the start of the project. Both sides need to be tolerant of the other's point of view and be prepared to put forward a solution in order that everybody can feel satisfied with the final outcome. The final payment for the job can be made once any snags have been put right, site waste has been cleared (if part of the contract) and all the work has been finished.
It is a sad fact that a lot of building projects go bad due to lack of communication between builder and client. At all times you need to be willing to discuss any problems or changes in your project with your builder.. If you have good communication with the building company you're less likely to wait for the "right" time to speak with them, particularly since the longer an issue is left unresolved, the more difficult it is to correct.
You could on a day to day basis be living in close proximity and for some time with your building team if the project is a substantial one. You must always have complete understanding and trust in this situation with your Blackheath building company and their personnel. A tremendous help in achieving this can be gained by looking into their accreditations, memberships and qualifications of trade associations.
There are a number of trade bodies and associations that provide construction and building skills, project management training and hands-on building classes for all levels of personnel. There are also more than 30 trade associations with membership schemes to highlight the professionalism and skills of the individual and for building companies. The most common membership schemes to look for in the building industry are:
The Construction Industry Council - The Construction Industry Council has more than 25,000 construction consultants and in excess of 500,000 individual building professionals in its membership. These represent the management and technical side of the building industry and it is highly likely that the site manager or other similar executive will be the holder of a CIC membership.
The Federation of Master Builders - The Federation of Master Builders (FMB) is the go-to membership for many building contractors, not only in Blackheath, but right across Britain. The FMB doesn't just provide guarantees and insurances for its members work, they also supply a useful dispute resolution service which provides impartial assistance to both builder and client in case of any fall-outs.
The Construction Skills Certification Scheme - In order to work on any construction site or be employed by a builder, a person must hold a card issued by Construction Skills Certification Scheme. The CSCS card shows proficiency in the CITB's Health, Safety and Environment test along with giving notice of the building and construction expertise and qualifications of the individual.
There are several different coloured cards issued by the CSCS scheme, with each colour demonstrating a different skill or qualification level of the holder. You will be able to discover more information and facts and see the different roles and cards on the CSCS website.
