Builder Frodsham Cheshire (WA6): Choosing the right builder for your Frodsham construction project can be tricky with the large number to choose from. Should you use a specialist building contractor, a house builder or a general builder for your assignment, and how should you go about choosing? To assist you in finding the best Frodsham building contractor for your undertaking here are some useful advice and tips to set you on the right path.
The building contractor you employ in Frodsham should be qualified, reliable and professional no matter the extent of construction project you are expecting them to complete. Friends and neighbours are a good place to get suggestions for a decent builder. If your friends or family have had construction work carried out and they're satisfied with the result, then that's the best advertisement for a building contractor.
If you can't find anyone who can recommend a builder in Frodsham then you could ask the professionals. You are able to find independent builders and building contractors who are supported by insurances and guarantees on the Federation of Master Builders (FMB) list of trusted contractors. If anything happens to go wrong on a building project, this insurance and peace of mind from the FMB can prove invaluable.
You will want to get a few things prepared before asking a builder in Frodsham for a quote. They will not be able to produce an accurate price if it isn't clear exactly what you need. If it's quite a large project you can ask your building contractor to supervise all stages, from design and management to complete construction works, whilst modest building tasks should give you the scope to have your own designs and ideas prepared to show a builder so as to receive an exact estimate.
Have a written summary of your specifications together with photocopies of architect's drawings to hand over to all Frodsham builders who are supplying a quotation. By having these documents ready it establishes a precise plan which a decent contractor can use as a working template for the project. Any price quote you receive will usually also come with an estimated timeline for the completion of the build.
Price quotes can vary considerably, but if there is one that is much lower than the rest you must get the builder to explain why this is the case and to make certain that they fully understand your requirements. If you don't receive an acceptable response then it may be best to give the work to an alternative builder and dodge potential stress and issues due to possible increases in costs as the build proceeds.
Don't make any hasty decisions in choosing a building contractor in Frodsham, or feel forced into picking a particular one; a good rule is to hold back for 24 hours and read through all of the quotes once again. A quote might not exactly break down every part of the project, but there should be a checklist of stages in the construction, and you're searching for things that haven't been included in the initial estimate. If there's no listing on your quote for rubble and building rubbish removal, for example, you should ask if this will be included in the price given. This has to be disposed of in an ethical manner and should you discover that it isn't part of the quote then you should find out why.
Another aspect to look at is the style, design and finish of any fittings and fixtures that you need. This should be stipulated on your original written brief and accordingly quoted for by the builder. If you've made particular demands you may need to confirm that these are replicated in the quote.
Okay, you've found a quotation that you're satisfied with and you are in a position to appoint your builder. Before any actual physical work begins your builder should write up a contract to protect you both. This contract should be distinct to your job and will deal with things like materials, specific fittings or fixtures, responsibilities in clearing the site before work commences and after completion, and what will occur if there any delays in or complications with the project. There should additionally be reference to the guarantee and warranty period of any work.
The contract will also stipulate when and how payments should be made for the construction work in question. If you are asked for a deposit you need to be cautious about paying out substantial sums of cash to a builder before any construction work has actually commenced. Payments should only be made when each part of a project has been finished, and only if you are pleased with the standard of the work.
At the conclusion of any project there needs to be a final inspection of the work involving the client and builder to make sure that all construction work has been finished to a good standard and a snag list of minor faults made up, if needed. A common sense approach is needed by both sides when managing this list, and it should comply with the formal contract that was signed at the start of the project. A final inspection does not have the objective of picking fault with the quality of the work, but is done to deal with any concerns about the final stage of the building project and how to fix them in a mutually acceptable way. The final payment for the job can be made when all the work has been completed, site waste has been cleared (if part of the contract) and any snags have been made good.
A good level of communication between the builder and you is vital if you are to keep a construction project running smoothly. At all times you need to be prepared to talk over any changes in or problems with your project with your builder.. It gets far more difficult to correct an issue the longer it's left, and you'll both appreciate good lines of communication from the outset.
It is entirely possible that you will be living and in close dialogue with your building contractors on a day to day basis for some period of time. It's essential that you've got trust and confidence in your Frodsham builders and whose understanding of the building trade and familiarity with your sort of project is totally dependable.
