The building company you hire in Hertford should be reliable, qualified and professional regardless of the size of building project you are expecting them to complete.

The next best way to uncover a trusted Hertford building company is to ask professionals within the construction industry. The Federation of Master Builders (FMB) holds a list of members that come with a guarantee and an FMB insurance endorsed warranty as standard. This peace of mind can be invaluable during a nerve-racking building project, especially when problems are encountered.

Before requesting a job quote from a building contractor in Hertford you'll need to have certain details ready in advance. If your project isn't made crystal clear, it can be extremely difficult for any builder to supply you with a definitive quote. You could obviously use your builder to oversee the design and planning of the building works, but for smaller building tasks it's wise to have your requirements prepared when you first make contact with a building contractor.

If you've got architect's drawings, you should make copies and pass them on to any Hertford builder providing a job quote, together with an in-depth written summary. That way you are describing your precise requirements from the outset. When you get your quote you will usually also be handed an approximate timeline for the building project.

Price quotes can vary considerably, however if there is one that is much lower than the rest you should ask the builder to explain why this is the case and to make sure that they fully understand your needs. If they are unable to give a suitable answer or a break down of the costs to explain the quotation, then it may be wise to consider a different building company, even if they happen to be somewhat more expensive.

Before choosing which Hertford building contractor to employ have a final read through of their quotations. Assess what is included, and even more important, what isn't included in the cost. If there's no listing on your quote for waste removal, for example, you should ask if this is included in the price. This must be removed and disposed of in a controlled fashion and if you discover that it's not included in the quote you need to ask why.

Another aspect to consider is the finish, design and style of any fixtures and fittings that you might need. This is an issue that should be clarified on your written summary given to the builder to enable him to source the items and include them in their estimate. If you've made specific demands you may need to verify these are reflected in your estimate.

Okay, you have found a quote that you are satisfied with and you're ready to appoint your builder. A contract should now be written up by the building company to set out the details of the undertaking. This contract will be unique to your building project and could list things like materials, specifics of fixtures and fittings, clearing of the site before work commences (theirs or your responsibility), and what will be done if there any delays in or problems with the work. The contract should state what warranty period you may have and precisely what the builder's guarantee covers in relation to their work and/or materials that are used on the project.

The contract should also stipulate when and how payments should be made for the building work in question. It is possible that you may be asked for a deposit, however you should not pay any large amounts of money before work begins. Bigger construction projects are normally paid for in stages, and you'll pay on completion of each stage and only when you're happy that the work has been carried out successfully.

A snagging list of any minor faults can be compiled during a final inspection of the finished project which will involve the builder and the client. A snagging list is a means by which a builder can rectify any small problems found at the end of the project, and should be in accordance with the signed building contract between both parties. As both parties complete a final inspection there needs to be a mutual agreement to the snag list and a discussion should take place as to how any faults will be fixed. Only when all work is completed to your satisfaction and any snags put right, should the final payment for the job be given to the builder.
