Builder Cwmbran Wales (NP44): There are so many building contractors and construction companies in and near to Cwmbran that it can be something of a challenge to pick out the right one for your particular needs. How can you determine which house builder, general builder or specialist building contractor to employ? To find the right builder for your precise needs, here are some useful tips and guidance.
Whatever the extent of your building assignment; an extension to your house, a full house build, a cellar renovation or just a new garden wall, you want a professional, qualified and reliable Cwmbran building contractor to carry out the work. First of all you can do is ask friends and neighbours for recommendations. If your friends or neighbours have previously had building work completed and they're satisfied with how the work went, then that is the best recommendation for any building contractor.
If you don't know anybody who can recommend a building company in Cwmbran then ask the industry professionals. A list of reputable individual builders and companies is held by the Federation of Master Builders, who back each signed up member with an insurance backed warranty and guarantees for any construction work they do. A recommended FMB building contractor should give you the self-confidence in the knowledge that your project will be completed even if things appear to be going awry, or unforeseen delays in building are taking place.
Before asking a building company in Cwmbran for an estimate you will want to have certain details prepared beforehand. An accurate quote can only be prepared if you explain in detail the requirements and scope of your construction project. You of course could use your builder to oversee the design and management of your building works, however for more modest building tasks it is wise to have your details ready and prepared when you first contact a building contractor.
If you've got any architectural drawings, you need to make photocopies and pass them to any Cwmbran builder supplying a job quote, together with a detailed written brief. By having these documents ready it sets out a defined plan which a reputable builder will be able to use as a working template for the project. Any quote you receive will also come with an estimated timeframe for the completion of the build.
If you are given an estimate that's a lot cheaper than the others, take a moment to contemplate why this might be and ask how they can work for that amount without corner-cutting on labour or materials. If you don't receive an acceptable response it might be safer to give the work to another building company and dodge any possible stressful situations owing to potential escalating costs costs as the build proceeds.
As soon as you've received all the estimates, do not be in a panic to pick a building contractor in Cwmbran; sleep on your decision and the following day you can go over all the quotations again to be on the safe side. You should pay particular attention to what isn't included in the total price given. Some builders might not itemise building waste and rubble removal for instance. Any building waste must be disposed of correctly and if it is not included in the quote you need to ask who is liable for the clearance of the site on completion.
You may also need to affirm any fittings and fixtures you need for your project are to your exact specifications. This is something that ought to be transparent on your written summary that is given to the builders to enable them to procure the items and ensure they are included in the estimate. If you feel at all uncertain about any aspect of the quotation with regard to your accessories, this is the time to raise the questions and make sure that you won't have any unwanted surprises once the building work commences.
Once you've decided on a builder and accepted their estimate there's one further piece of paperwork to get through. Before the real work begins the builder should draw up a contract to safeguard both of you. This will very likely include items such as; responsibilities in clearing the site before work starts and after completion, materials, details of fittings and fixtures, and there'll be an entry for resolving any snags or problems. There should also be reference to the guarantee and warranty period of the work involved.
It may also set out the method of payment for the work. Your builder might want a small deposit, although it isn't advisable to pay substantial cash payments in advance. If you're paying for your building project in stages, you should only be asked to pay upon each stage completion, and when you are satisfied with the standard of the work that has been accomplished.
A final inspection will be made between the builder and the client and any work that needs to be put right, or items overlooked through the construction phase needs to be documented. The list should be addressed with a common sense approach from both parties, and comply with the formal contract that was agreed at the beginning of the project. Both sides should be accepting of the other's point of view and be prepared to put forward a solution so that everybody can feel happy with the building works completion. When all work is completed, the snagging list has been done and the site has been cleared of tools and materials, the final payment for the job can be made.
If you cultivate good lines of communication with your builder, you're setting a good foundation in the smooth running of your project. You always need to be able to talk over any changes in or problems with your project with your building company, and you must do this the moment something arises. If you have good communication with the building contractor you're less likely to wait for the "right" time to talk to them, particularly since the longer an issue is left to fester, the more complicated it is to correct.
It is possible that you will be living and in close cooperation with your building contractors for a period of time and on a day-to-day basis.
