The building contractor you use in Irvine should be professional, qualified and reliable regardless of the extent of the building project you are asking them to accomplish.

In general, the next best way to uncover a respected Irvine building contractor is to ask specialists within the construction industry. The Federation of Master Builders (FMB) keeps a database of registered members who come with a guarantee and an FMB insurance supported warranty as standard. This peace of mind can be invaluable during a stressful and nerve-racking building project, especially when things don't go to plan.

It is wise to prepare details of your building project prior to asking for an estimate from a builder in Irvine. They won't be able to come up with an accurate price if it isn't crystal clear precisely what you need. If it's quite a big project you can ask a building company to oversee every stage, from design and management to complete construction works, while smaller building work should enable you to have some ideas and designs prepared to give to a builder in order to get an exact estimate.

You need to make photocopies of any written design specifications and architectural drawings and give them to the Irvine builders who you ask for a quotation. That way you're setting out your exact requirements from the start. When you obtain your estimate you should also be given an approximated timescale for the project.

Quotations can fluctuate considerably, but if there are one or two much cheaper than the others you should get the builder to explain why this is so and to make sure that they have fully understood your expectations. If they cannot break down the costs or give a convincing answer to explain the quote, then it might be better to consider a different building contractor, even if they are a bit more expensive.

Before opting for which Irvine builder to employ have one last read through of their quotations. A quotation may not break down every aspect of the project, however there should be a list of phases in the construction process, and you're trying to identify things that haven't been included in the initial estimation. If there is no entry on your quote for waste removal, for example, you should ask them if this is going to be included at no extra charge. This must be removed and disposed of in a controlled way and if you find it is not part of the quote then you should ask why.

If you've got a certain style or design you want for any fixtures and fittings for your construction project in Irvine, these should be included and itemised in the estimate. This is an issue that should be made clear on your written brief given to the builder to allow him to procure the items and make certain they are included in the estimate. If the quote doesn't stipulate your accessories you could end up with a cheaper alternative to cut costs.

So, you've found a quotation that you're happy with and you are ready to appoint your builder. Before the real work commences your builder should write up a contract for the protection of you both. This should include stuff like specific fixtures or fittings, clearance of the site before work commences (yours or their responsibility), the materials to be used and where to store them on site, and the doing any "snagging" during and at the end of the project. The contract will set out what warranty period you may have and precisely what the builder's guarantee covers with regards to their work and/or materials that are used in the project.

If you've agreed upon a method of payment, this will also be laid out in the contract, or the builder will discuss how and when any payments are completed. The builder might need a deposit, however it is advised not to pay significant amounts of cash up front. Larger construction projects are usually paid for in stages, and you'll only pay on the completion of each stage when you are satisfied that the work has been accomplished correctly.

A final inspection will be carried out by the client and builder and any items that need to be put right, or details missed during the building stage should be written down. This snag list should shine a spotlight on any problems that require fixing in accordance with the terms of the contract that was signed by both sides before work started. As both sides carry out a final building inspection there needs to be a mutual agreement to the contents of the snagging list and a discussion should take place as to how any faults will be remedied. When the snag list has been accomplished, the site has been cleared of tools and materials and all work is finished, the final payment for the job can be made.

It is unfortunate that many building projects turn bad owing to poor communication between client and builder. If you happen to notice a problem, or something you wish to alter during the project, talk to your builder immediately. It gets far more difficult to correct a problem the longer it is left, and you will both benefit from good lines of communication from the start.

It's quite possible that you'll be living and in close collaboration with your building contractors on a daily basis for a period of time.
