Builder Chorleywood Hertfordshire (WD3): There are such a lot of construction companies and builders in and around Chorleywood that it can be challenging in picking the right one for your particular needs. From house builders, specialist building contractors, to general builders; how can you possibly know which one to pick? To help you on your way, below are some tips and guidance on getting the best Chorleywood builder at a decent price.
It makes no difference if you're getting an extension built, remodeling a cellar, building your own home or any other project you're thinking of, your Chorleywood builder must be professional, reliable and qualified to carry out the work. The first thing you can do is ask neighbours and friends for suggestions. If they're satisfied with a builder they've used then put them on your list as you'll want to get more than one quotation for the task.
If you don't know anybody who can recommend a builder in Chorleywood then you can ask the professionals. You are able to find builders and building contractors who are covered by insurances and guarantees on the FMB (Federation of Master Builders) list of trusted contractors. When things sometimes go wrong on a building project, this peace of mind and insurance from the FMB can prove to be vital.
Before asking a building company in Chorleywood for a price quote you will need to have a few details ready in advance. They will not be able to come up with a definitive price if it's not crystal clear precisely what you want. You ought to be able to come up with some dimensions and designs of smaller construction works, a garden wall for example, however if it's a much larger project you can ask the builder for help right from the design stage right through to project management and completion.
You should make duplicates of any written design requirements and architectural drawings and give them to the Chorleywood builders you ask for an estimate. This way you are describing your exact needs right from the outset. Any quotation you get should also come with an estimated timescale for finishing the build.
If you receive a quotation which is significantly cheaper than the others, take some time to consider why this is and ask yourself how they can work for that amount without cutting corners on materials or labour. As a possible client you're perfectly within your rights to request a convincing explanation and receive an itemised break down of the costs, and if the builder is unable to supply this it might be better to be safe than sorry and consider a different contractor for the project.
Don't make any rash decisions when selecting builders in Chorleywood, or feel obligated into going for a particular one; an excellent tip is to wait for a day or so and look over all the estimates once more. You need to pay special attention to what ISN'T included in the total price given. As an example, some building contractors might reduce the estimated costs by not including waste removal from the site at the end of the work. The debris and rubble from any building work has to be removed and disposed of in a safe and ethical way, in keeping with local regulations, and this can be an expensive extr outlay if it isn't listed in the initial quote.
You might also need to confirm any fixtures and fittings you require for your project meet up with your specifications. Stuff like this must be stated on your original written brief and quoted for accordingly by your builder. If you have made particular demands you might need to verify these are reflected in the quote.
Okay, so you've found a price quote you're happy with and you're now ready to hire your builder. A contract should now be drafted by the builder to specify details of the undertaking. This will include such things as responsibilities in clearing the site before work commences and on completion, specific fixtures or fittings, what materials are to be used, and the making good of any snags during and at the conclusion of the project. The contract will set out the warranty period that you get and precisely what the guarantees by the builder cover with regards to their work and/or materials used for the project.
This contract will also stipulate how and when payments should be made for the project in question. It is entirely possible you might be asked for a deposit, however do not pay out any significant sums of money prior to work beginning. Larger building projects are usually paid for in phases, and you'll pay on completion of each stage and only when you're satisfied that the stage has been accomplished successfully.
A snagging list of any small faults can be gathered together during the final inspection of the finished project which will involve the client and builder. A snagging list is a means by which a builder can fix any small issues discovered at the termination of the project, and should be in keeping with the signed building contract between both sides. As both parties carry out a final building inspection there should be a mutual agreement to the contents of the snag list and a discussion should take place as to how the faults will be remedied. When the site has been cleared of materials and tools, the snag list has been accomplished and all work is completed, the final payment can be made.
If you establish a good line of communication with your builder, you're taking a big step towards the smooth running of your project. At all times you need to be prepared to discuss any problems or changes in your project with your building contractor, and you should do this as soon as something arises. The longer that you leave something to fester, the harder it is for the building contractor to rectify and having a good relationship from the start is vital.
It is possible that you will be living and in close dialogue with your building contractors for a period of time and on a day-to-day basis. You should always have complete understanding and trust in this case with your Chorleywood builder and his workforce. Any qualifications, memberships and accreditations held by your builder from trade associations can help give you reassurance.
