If there is nobody who can provide you with a good recommendation you will have to look for a skilled Lichfield building contractor by asking experts in the industry. The FMB (Federation of Master Builders) keeps a database of members who come guaranteed and with an FMB insurance supported warranty as standard.

It's wise to prepare details about your building project before you ask any building company in Lichfield for an estimate. If the project is not made crystal clear, it becomes extremely difficult for any builder to provide you with an accurate quotation. You should be able to show some plans and designs for smaller construction tasks, a garden wall for instance, but if it is a much larger project you can ask your builder for help right from the design stage and all the way through project management and completion.

If you have any architectural drawings, you should make copies and hand them to any Lichfield builder providing a quotation, together with a detailed written brief.

As well as an itemised estimate your building contractor will also be able to lay down an approximate timescale for the completion of the building works.

If you receive a quotation that's much cheaper than the rest, take a moment to contemplate why this is and ask yourself how they can work for that price without cutting corners on materials or labour. If you do not receive an acceptable response it may be best to move on to an alternative builder and sidestep potential problems and stress resulting from possible increasing costs as the build proceeds.

As soon as you have received all the estimates, do not be in a rush to pick out a builder in Lichfield; sleep on it and the next day go over all the quotes again to play it safe. You should pay special attention to what isn't included in the total price. Some builders might not itemise rubble and building waste removal for example. Any building waste has to be disposed of properly and if it isn't included in the quote you have been given you must ask who is responsible for the site clearance on completion.

Another item to think about is the finish, style and design of any fixtures and fittings that you require. This is something that ought to be clarified on your written summary that is given to the builders to enable them to procure these accessories and include them in their estimate. If you feel at all unsure about any part of the quotation in relation to your accessories, now is a good time to raise the questions and make sure you will not get any unpleasant surprises once the building work commences.

Once you've settled on a builder and accepted their price quote there is one further bit of paperwork to deal with. To safeguard the interests of both parties, the building contractor ought to provide you with a written contract to be signed before any actual physical work commences. This should include things like specific fittings or fixtures, materials, responsibilities in clearing the site before work begins and after completion, and the making good of any snags during and at the end of the project. The contract should set out the warranty period that you get and what the guarantees by the builder cover with regards to their work or/and materials that are used on the project.

It might also establish the payment schedule for the building work. It is possible that you could be asked for a small deposit, but you should not pay any substantial amounts of money before work begins. If you're paying for your building project in stages, you should only pay as each phase is finished, and when you're satisfied with the work that's been accomplished.

A snag list of any minor faults can be gathered together during a final inspection of the finished project which will involve the client and builder. A snag list is a means by which a builder can rectify any small problems found at the end of the project, and should be in line with the the contract that was signed by both sides. Each party should be accepting of the other's point of view and be prepared to offer a solution in order that everybody can feel satisfied with the building works completion. The final payment can be made once site waste has been cleared (if included in contract), any snags have been put right and all work has been completed.
