In general, the next best way to find a trustworthy Larbert building contractor is to ask specialists within the industry. The FMB (Federation of Master Builders) has a database of registered members that all come with a guarantee and an FMB insurance supported warranty as standard. This reassurance can be invaluable during a stressful construction project, especially when problems are encountered.

Before asking a building company in Larbert for an estimate you will need to have a few details prepared beforehand. They will not be able to come up with a definitive price if it's not clear exactly what you want. If it's quite a large undertaking you could ask a building company to supervise every stage of the work, from management and design to the actual construction, while more modest building tasks should enable you to have some ideas and designs to show a builder so as to get an exact quote.

If you've got architect's drawings, you should make photocopies and pass them to any Larbert builder providing an estimate, as well as an in-depth written summary. This way you are both clear on the envisioned outcome of the project. Any price quote you receive will also come together with an estimated timeframe to complete the build.

Some Larbert builders will typically give a lower quote than the others, but you must ask how they can do this without corner-cutting or using low quality materials. As a potential client you're perfectly within your rights to ask for a compelling explanation and receive a break down of the costs, and if the builder is unwilling or unable to provide this it could be better to be safe than sorry and consider a different company for the work.

Before deciding on which Larbert builder to hire have a final read through of their estimates. Look at what's included in the price, and even more important what isn't included. Certain building companies might not itemise building waste and rubble removal for example. All building waste must be removed and disposed of correctly and if it's not included in the initial estimate you have to ask who is responsible for the clean-up of the site on completion.

Another aspect to look at is the finish, style and design of any fittings and fixtures that you require. Given that certain styles will need to be sourced from different retailers, your written summary should have as much detail with regard to the fittings you have chosen, to allow the builder the information to present you with an accurate price. Should you feel at all uncertain about any aspect of the estimate with regard to your fixtures and fittings, now is a good time to clarify the situation and make sure that you will not have any unpleasant surprises during the project.

Okay, so you have found an estimate that you're satisfied with and you're ready to hire your builder. A contract should now be drafted by the building firm to set out details of the undertaking. This contract should be unique to your project and could deal with things like specific fittings or fixtures, responsibilities in clearing the site before work starts and after completion, materials, and what to do if there any complications or delays in the project. There should also be mention of the warranty period and guarantee of the work involved.

It could also establish the payment schedule for the building work. The builder might ask for a small deposit, although it is advised not to pay substantial amounts of money in advance. Bigger construction projects are typically paid for in stages, and you'll pay on completion of each stage and only when you are satisfied that the stage has been accomplished successfully.

A snag list of any minor faults can be compiled during a final inspection of the completed project by the builder and client. A common sense approach is necessary by both parties when managing this list, and it should conform to the contract that was signed at the beginning of the project. Both parties need to be accepting of the other's point of view and be ready to offer a solution in order that everyone can feel satisfied with the final outcome. When all work is completed, the site has been cleared of materials and tools and the snagging list has been done, the final payment for the job can be made.
