Before choosing which Irlam building contractor to use have one last read through of their estimates. Assess what's included in the price, and even more important what ISN'T included. If there is no listing on your quotation for building rubbish and rubble removal, for example, you must ask them if this is going to be included in the price. This must be disposed of in a controlled way and if you find it isn't included in the quotation you should find out why.

Another element to look at is the design, finish and style of any fixtures and fittings that you require. This is something that ought to be made clear on your written brief that is given to the builders to allow them to source the items and include them in their estimate. Should you feel at all uncertain about any aspect of the quotation with regard to your fixtures and fittings, now is the time to raise questions and be certain that you will not have any upsetting surprises once the work commences.

Okay, you have found an estimate you're 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 specifics of the project. This should include such things as what materials are to be used, specific fittings or fixtures, clearance of the site before work starts, and the doing any "snagging" during and at the conclusion of the project. There should additionally be reference to the guarantee and warranty period of any work.

If you have come to an agreement on a payment method, this will be included in the contract, or the building contractor will discuss when and how any payments will be made. The builder might ask for a modest deposit, although it is advised not to pay significant cash payments up front. Bigger construction projects are typically paid for in stages, and you will pay on completion of each stage and only when you are satisfied that the stage has been carried out correctly.

A snagging list of any small faults can be made during the final inspection of the finished project by the builder and the client. A common sense approach is required by both parties when handling this list, and it should observe the formal contract that was agreed at the beginning of the project. As both sides complete a final building inspection there needs to be a mutually acceptable agreement to any snagging list and explanations on how to correct any faults discussed. When all work is finished, the site has been cleared of tools and materials and the snag list has been done, the final payment can be made.
