Once you've got all the estimates in, don't be in a rush to pick out a building contractor in Frinton-on-Sea; sleep on your decision and the next day you can go over all of the job quotes once more just to be on the safe side. A quotation might not itemise every part of the project, however there ought to be a list of phases in the build process, and you're searching for stuff that hasn't been included in the initial estimate. For instance, some builders may reduce the quote by not adding waste removal from the site at the end of the work.

If the quote does not specify your fittings you may find a cheaper option being used to cut costs.

Okay, you've found a price quote you're happy with and you are ready to appoint your builder. To safeguard the interests of both parties, the building contractor should present you with a contract to sign before any actual physical work starts. This should include stuff like what materials are to be used, clearance of the site before work starts, specifics of fixtures and fittings, as well as the making good of any snags during and at the end of the project. The contract should set out the warranty period that you get and what the guarantees from the builder cover with regards to their work or/and materials that are used in the project.

A common sense approach is necessary by both parties when dealing with this list, and it should observe the contract that was agreed at the start of the project. Each side needs to be ready to accept the other's viewpoint and be willing to offer a solution so that everyone can feel satisfied with the building works completion.
