If the building project isn't made clear, it becomes very difficult for any building contractor to provide an accurate quotation. If it's quite a big building project you can ask a building contractor to manage all stages, from planning and design to full construction, while more modest building work should enable you to have some designs and ideas prepared to give to a builder in order to obtain a precise estimate.

If you get a job quote which is a lot cheaper than the others, take a moment to consider how this can be and ask how they can work for that amount without skimping on materials or manpower. As a possible client you're perfectly within your rights to ask for a compelling explanation and receive a break down of the estimated costs, and if the builder is unable or unwilling to supply this it might be better to be safe than sorry and consider a different contractor for the work.

Do not make any rash decisions when choosing a building contractor in Earl Shilton, or feel pushed into going for one in particular; a good rule is to hold back for 24 hours and look over each of the quotations again. Pay particular attention to what isn't included in the total price offered. For example, some building companies might reduce the quote by not itemising waste removal at the end of the project. The rubble and debris from any building work should be removed and disposed of in a safe and responsible fashion, in line with local regulations, and this can be a costly extra if it isn't listed in the quote you've been presented with.

Another thing to think about is the finish, style and design of any fixtures and fittings that you might need. This is something that should be clarified on your original written summary that is given to the builders to enable them to source these accessories and ensure that they're included in the quotation. If you feel at all uncertain about any aspect of the quote with regard to your fixtures and fittings, this is the time to raise the questions and make sure that you will not get any unpleasant surprises during the project.

Once you have settled on a builder and approved their quotation there is one further bit of paperwork to deal with. To secure the interests of both parties, the building company should supply you with a contract to sign before the real work starts. This contract will be distinct to your particular project and could list things like specific fittings or fixtures, what materials are to be used, clearance of the site before work commences (yours or their responsibility), and what will happen if there any delays in or complications with the work. It should in addition detail any warranty period and what the guarantee covers with regards to building work and materials.

It may also set out the payment schedule for the work. The builder may ask for a deposit, but it is advised not to pay significant amounts of cash in advance. If you're paying for your building project in phases, you should only pay as each stage is finished, and when you are pleased with the standard of the work that has been done.

At the end of the project there needs to be a final inspection of the work involving the builder and the client to ensure that all construction work has been finished to a good standard and a snag list of minor errors made up, if needed. A common sense approach is necessary by both parties when managing this list, and it should comply with the contract that was agreed at the start of the project. A final inspection does not have the purpose of picking fault with the quality of the work, but is undertaken to address any concerns about the final stage of the building project and the means by which to rectify them in a satisfactory way. When the snagging list has been accomplished, the site has been cleared of materials and tools and all work is completed, the final payment for the job can be made.
