Builder Bolton-upon-Dearne South Yorkshire (S63): Picking out the right builder for your Bolton-upon-Dearne based building project can be hard with so many available. From house builders, general builders, to specialist building contractors; how do you know which one to use? To assist you in finding the best Bolton-upon-Dearne building contractor for your undertaking below are some helpful advice and tips to set you on the right path.
Whatever the size of your building venture; a complete house build, a basement renovation, a home extension or just a new garden wall, you want a qualified, professional and reliable Bolton-upon-Dearne building contractor to carry out the work. Start by asking for suggestions from family and friends. If they're pleased with a builder then add them to your shortlist as you'll need to get more than one quotation for the task.
The next best way to find a trusted Bolton-upon-Dearne building contractor is to ask experts within the industry. The Federation of Master Builders keeps a list of signed-up members that all come guaranteed and with an FMB insurance supported warranty as standard. An approved FMB building company will give you the confidence in knowing that your project will be successfully completed even if problems occur, or unexpected delays in building occur.
It is wise to prepare the details about your building project prior to requesting an estimate from a builder in Bolton-upon-Dearne. A precise quotation can only be prepared if you explain in detail the scope and requirements of your construction project. You could of course use a builder to oversee the design and planning of the building works, however for more modest building jobs it is wise to have your specifications ready when you first make contact with a building contractor.
If you have any architect's drawings, you should make copies and pass them on to any Bolton-upon-Dearne builder providing a quote, along with a detailed written summary of the work. By having such paperwork ready it sets out a defined plan which a decent contractor will be able to use as a template for the job. Along with an itemised estimate the builder should also be able to determine an approximate timescale to complete the building works.
If you receive a quote which is much cheaper than the rest, take some time to consider why this is and ask yourself how they would be able to work for that price level without corner-cutting on materials or manpower. If you do not get a reasonable response then it may be safer to move on to another builder and avoid any possible stressful situations owing to potential escalating costs costs as the work progresses.
Do not make any rash decisions in choosing builders in Bolton-upon-Dearne, or feel pushed into going for a particular one; an excellent rule is to hold back for 24 hours and look over each of the job quotes again. Pay particular attention to anything that's NOT included in the total price given. Certain building contractors may not itemise building waste and rubble removal for example. This must be disposed of in a responsible and ethical fashion and if you find it's not included in the estimate you should find out why.
You may also need to verify any fixtures and fittings you need for your build are up to your exact specifications. Because certain designs will have to be procured from different retailers, your written brief needs to have as much detail as possible regarding the accessories you want, to enable the builder the information to provide you with an accurate quote. If the price quote does not stipulate your specifications you might find a substandard alternative being used to cut costs.
Okay, you've found an estimate that you are happy with and you are in a position to hire your builder. Before the real work begins your builder should prepare a contract to protect both of you. This contract will be distinct to your building project and could deal with things like details of fittings and fixtures, clearance of the site before work commences (yours or their responsibility), what materials are to be used, and what to do if there any delays in or complications with the work. There should additionally be reference to the warranty period and guarantee of the work involved.
It could also set out the methods of payment for the building work. If you're requested to pay a deposit you should be cautious about paying out significant amounts of cash to any builder before the work has even started. Bigger building projects are generally paid for in phases, and you will pay on completion of each stage and only when you are happy that the work has been completed correctly.
At the end of the project there needs to be a final inspection of the work involving the builder and client to make certain all work has been completed to a good standard and a snagging list of minor errors made up, if necessary. This snagging list should point out any minor problems that require rectifying in line with the contract terms that was signed by both sides before work started. Each party should be tolerant of the other's point of view and be ready to offer a solution so that everyone can feel happy with the final result. The final payment should be made when any snags have been rectified, all of the work has been finished and site waste has been cleared (if part of the contract).
Good communication between the builder and you is vital to keep a construction project running smoothly. If there is something you'd like to change, or you notice a problem coming to light you need to have a word with the building company as soon as possible. It will become much more difficult to put an issue right the longer it's left, and you will both appreciate good lines of communication from the outset.
It is entirely possible that you will be living and in close contact with the building company for a period of time and on a day-to-day basis, on a larger construction project. You must always have complete understanding and trust in this case with your Bolton-upon-Dearne builders and their workers.
