Some Fordingbridge builders will naturally give a lower quote than the others, but you need to ask how they're able to achieve this without corner-cutting or using substandard materials. If they are unable to break down the costs or give a compelling answer to explain the quote, then it might be better to look at a different builder, even if they happen to be a little more expensive.

Do not make a rash decision when selecting a building contractor in Fordingbridge, or feel forced into picking a particular one; a great rule is to wait for 24 hours or so and check over all the quotes once more. You should pay special attention to what isn't included in the total price. For example, certain building companies may cut costs by not adding waste removal from the site at the end of the work. Any building waste must be removed and disposed of properly and if it isn't included in the quote you have been given you must ask who's responsible for the clearance of the site on completion.

You may also need to ensure any fittings and fixtures you need for your build are up to your exact specifications. This is an issue that ought to be transparent on your written brief that is given to the builders to allow them to procure these accessories and include them in their quote. If you have made specific demands you might need to verify that these are replicated in your estimate.

So, you've found an estimate that you're happy with and you are ready to hire your builder. Before any work begins the builder should prepare a contract that safeguards you both. This will include stuff like removal of building rubbish and waste, details of fittings and fixtures, the materials to be used and where to store them on site, and the doing any "snagging" during and at the conclusion of the project. There should also be reference to the guarantee and warranty period of any work.

It may also set out the payment schedule for the building work. The builder may request a small deposit, however it is not advisable to pay significant amounts of cash up front. Payments should be made only when each phase of a building project has been finished, and then only when you are satisfied with the work.

A snagging list of any faults can be compiled during the final inspection of the finished project which will involve the builder and client. A common sense approach is required by both parties when addressing this list, and it should observe the contract that was signed at the beginning of the project. Both sides should be tolerant of the other's point of view and be willing to put forward a solution so that everyone can feel satisfied with the final outcome. When all work is completed, the snag list has been accomplished and the site has been cleared of materials and tools, the final payment for the job can be made.
