If there's nobody that can supply you with a good recommendation you will have to look for a professional Inverness builder via the experts in the industry. The FMB (Federation of Master Builders) keeps a database of members that all come guaranteed and with an FMB insurance endorsed warranty as standard. If things happen to go wrong on a construction project, this insurance and peace of mind from the Federation can prove to be vital.

You'll need to prepare a few things before asking a builder in Inverness for a price quote. They will not be able to come up with a definitive price if it's not crystal clear exactly what you want. You should be able to come up with some designs and plans of smaller construction tasks, a garden wall for example, however if it is a much larger project you can ask the builder for help right from the planning and design stage and all the way through the management of the build to completion.

Have a written summary of your specifications as well as copies of architectural drawings to hand over to all Inverness builders who are supplying a quotation. By doing this you are setting out your exact needs right from the start. When you obtain your estimate you should also be given an approximate timeframe for the building project.

If you receive a job quote that's much cheaper than the rest, take some time to consider how this can be and ask yourself how they can do the job for that amount without scrimping on manpower or materials. As a possible client you are perfectly within your rights to request a compelling explanation and receive a break down of the costs given, and if the builder is unwilling or unable to provide this it might be in your best interests to look at a different contractor for the task.

Before picking out which Inverness building company to use have a final read through of their price quotes. A quote may not itemise every part of the project, but there ought to be a list of stages in the construction process, and you're looking for things that haven't been included in the first estimation. For example, certain builders might reduce the quote by not itemising waste removal when the job is finished. This has to be removed and disposed of in a responsible and ethical fashion and should you find it isn't part of the estimate you need to ask why.

You may also need to double check that any fixtures and fittings you want for your build meet up with your exact specifications. This must be specified on your written summary and accordingly quoted for by your builder. If you have made specified demands you may need to verify that these are reflected in the estimate.

So, you've made your mind up, you've got an estimate that you're happy with and you've appointed your chosen Inverness builder. A contract should be drafted by the building firm to lay down the details of the undertaking. This will very likely include items such as; clearing of the site before work begins (theirs or your responsibility), materials, specific fixtures or fittings, and there should also be a resolution for any problems or snags. The contract will set out what warranty period you may have and what the guarantees by the builder cover with regards to their work or/and materials used in the project.

If you've agreed upon a payment schedule, this will also be included in the contract, or a builder will indicate how and when any payments will be made. It's possible that you might be asked for a small deposit, however you shouldn't pay any large sums of money before work begins. Larger construction projects are generally paid for in phases, and you'll pay on completion of each stage and only when you are satisfied that the work has been accomplished correctly.

A final inspection will be carried out by the builder and client and any items that need to be put right, or small details missed throughout the building stage needs to be noted. This snag list should highlight any minor problems that require rectification in line with the terms of the contract that was agreed by both parties before work began. Each side should be tolerant of the other's viewpoint and be prepared to put forward a solution in order that everybody can feel satisfied with the final outcome. The final payment can be made when all work has been completed, site waste has been removed (if included in contract) and any snags have been rectified.

It is a sad fact that some construction projects turn sour due to poor communication between the customer and builder. If you happen to find an issue, or something you'd like to alter throughout the project, speak to your builder right away. It becomes far more difficult to correct an issue the longer it is left to fester, and you'll both appreciate good lines of communication from the outset.

For larger projects you need to realise that you will be in direct contact with your builders on a regular basis. Having trust and confidence in the builder's skills, qualifications and experience can mean that this extra stress is a little bit easier to live with. Any accreditations, memberships and qualifications held by the builder from industry professional organisations can help give you reassurance.
