Builder Martock Somerset (TA12): There are such a lot of construction companies and building contractors in and around Martock that it can be quite a challenge to choose the right one for your needs. Should you use a house builder, a specialist in one form of construction skills or just a general builder for your assignment, and how should you go about choosing? To help you, here are some tips and guidance on getting the best Martock builder at a decent price.
The building company you hire in Martock should be reliable, professional and qualified irrespective of the extent of building project you're asking them to accomplish. Firstly you could do is ask family and friends for suggestions. A builder who has excellent "by word of mouth" approval is one to add to your list of possible contractors to ask for an estimate.
The next best way to find a trusted Martock building company is to ask specialists within the construction industry. You are able to identify independent builders and building companies who are supported by guarantees and insurances on the Federation of Master Builders (FMB) list of approved builders. This peace of mind can be invaluable during a nerve-racking construction project, particularly when things can sometimes not go to plan.
You'll want to prepare a few things before asking a professional builder in Martock for a quote. If your project isn't made clear, it becomes very difficult for any building contractor to supply you with an accurate quotation. If it's a large construction project you can ask your building contractor to oversee every stage of the work, from design and planning to complete construction works, while smaller building work should enable you to have some ideas and designs to show a contractor in order to obtain an exact estimate.
You should make duplicates of any written design requirements and architectural drawings and give them to the Martock builders you ask for an estimate. This way you're setting out your exact needs from the outset. As well as a detailed estimate your building contractor should also be able to establish a rough timeframe to complete the work.
If you are given a quotation which is a lot cheaper than the rest, take some time to contemplate how this can be and ask yourself how they would be able to do the job for that amount without taking shortcuts on materials or labour. If you don't receive a reasonable response then it may be better to give the work to another builder and avoid potential stresses and issues due to possible increasing costs as the build progresses.
Before deciding upon which Martock builder to hire have a final look over their estimates. Consider what's included in the price, and even more important what ISN'T included. For example, certain building companies may cut costs by not adding waste removal when the job is finished. Any building waste has to be disposed of correctly and if it's not included in the quotation you must ask who's liable for the site clearance on completion.
Another element to consider is the finish, design and style of any fittings and fixtures that you require. Because certain designs will have to be sourced from various suppliers, your written summary needs to have as much detail regarding the fittings you want, to allow the builder the information to provide you with an accurate price. If you've made specific demands you may need to confirm that these are replicated in your quotation.
Okay, so you have found a quotation that you are satisfied with and you are in a position to appoint your builder. A contract should be written up by the building company to lay down the specifics of the work. This will include stuff like the materials to be used and where to store them on site, specifics of fixtures and fittings, removal of building waste and rubbish, and the doing any "snagging" during and at the conclusion of the project. The contract will declare what warranty period you may have and exactly what the guarantees by the builder cover with regards to their work and/or materials used on the project.
If you've agreed on a payment method, this should also be included in the contract. If you are asked for a deposit you need to be wary of paying out significant sums of money to any builder before work begins. Larger construction projects are usually paid for in stages, and you'll only pay on the completion of each stage when you're satisfied that the work has been completed successfully.
A final inspection should be made by the builder and client and any items that need to be put right, or things missed during the construction stage needs to be noted. This snagging list should point out any problems that need rectifying in line with the terms of the contract that was signed by both parties before work started. Each party should be accepting of the other's viewpoint and be willing to put forward a solution so that everybody can feel pleased with the final result. When the snag list has been done, all work is completed and the site has been cleared of tools and materials, the final payment for the job can be made.
If you cultivate a good line of communication between yourself and the builder, you are taking a big step towards the smooth running of your project. If there's something you want to modify, or you see an issue developing you should talk to the building contractor as soon as possible. If you've got a good line of communication with the builder you're less likely to wait around for the "right" time to speak to them, especially as the longer an issue is left to fester, the more difficult it is to correct.
You might be living in direct contact on a daily basis and for some time with your building team if the project is a substantial one. Having confidence and trust in you Martock builder's qualifications, skills and experience can make this extra stress that little bit easier to bear. A considerable help in accomplishing this is by examining their memberships, accreditations and qualifications of professional organisations.
Within the construction industry there are plenty of qualification opportunities for project management, hands-on training and other construction related topics from a range of different professional organisations. An individual builder or building firm can be a member of one of the 30 schemes that have been established by industry frontrunners to highlight their dependability, professionalism and skills. Trade bodies that are held in good regard in the construction trade are:

The Construction Skills Certification Scheme - To be qualified to work on any building site or seek employment by a building company, an individual has to hold a card from the Construction Skills Certification Scheme (CSCS). The CSCS card showcases a worker's qualifications, (Diploma, Postgraduate Degree, NVQ and Degree) in the building industry along with their certification from the CITB Health, Safety and Environment exam.

The Construction Industry Council - The Construction Industry Council is the biggest of the construction industry's trade organisations with approximately 500,000 building professionals and more than 25,000 construction consultants listed amongst its members.
