Builder Martock Somerset (TA12): There are such a lot of building contractors and construction companies in and near to Martock that it can be quite a challenge to pick the right one for your particular requirements. Do you need a house builder, a general builder or a specialist building contractor for your assignment, and how should you go about choosing? To help you on your way, here are some tips and advice on finding the best Martock builder at a decent price.
Whatever the size of your building project; a cellar refurbishment, a complete house build, an extension to your house or just a new garden wall, you want a reliable, qualified and professional Martock building contractor to do the job. The initial thing you can do is ask family and friends for recommendations. A builder who has excellent "by word of mouth" approval is one you should put on your shortlist of possible companies to ask for a price quote.
If you cannot find anybody who can endorse or recommend a building contractor in Martock then you can ask the industry professionals. The FMB (Federation of Master Builders) holds a database of members that come with a guarantee and an FMB insurance supported warranty as standard. If things happen to go wrong on a construction project, this reassurance from the FMB can turn out to be vital.
It is advisable to have the details of your building project prepared before you ask any contractor in Martock for a job quote. If your building project is not made crystal clear, it can be very difficult for any builder to supply a definitive quote. You of course could use your builder to oversee the planning and design of your building works, but for modest building jobs it's best to have your specifications ready and prepared when you first make contact with a building contractor.
If you have any architect's drawings, you need to make copies and pass them to any Martock builder supplying a quote, as well as an in-depth written summary. This way you're both clear about the expected outcome of your project. Any price quote you receive will also come with an estimated timeline for finishing the build.
Quotations can differ considerably, but if there is one that is much cheaper than the rest you must ask the builder to clarify why this is so and to check that they fully understand your needs. If you don't get a satisfactory response then it might be better to give the work to an alternative building company and sidestep any possible stressful situations because of potential increases in costs as the work progresses.
Don't make a rash decision in choosing a builder in Martock, or feel forced into picking a particular one; an excellent rule is to wait for 24 hours and check over each of the quotes once again. Pay special attention to what isn't included in the total price. As an example, certain building companies might reduce the quote by not itemising waste removal from the site when the job is completed. This must be removed and disposed of in a controlled way and if you find it isn't part of the quote then you need to ask why.
Another thing to think about is the finish, design and style of any fittings and fixtures that you might need. Seeing that specific designs will need to be sourced from various retailers, your written summary needs to have as much detail regarding the fittings you want, to allow the builder to provide you with an exact price. If you've made specific demands you may need to confirm that these are replicated in the quotation.
Okay, you have found a quotation that you're happy with and you're now ready to hire your builder. Before the real work starts your builder should draft a contract to protect you both. This should include stuff like clearance of the site before work starts (yours or their responsibility), specific fixtures or fittings, what materials are to be used, and the making good of any snags during and at the conclusion of the project. The contract will state the warranty period that you get and exactly what the builder's guarantee covers in relation to their work or/and materials that are used for the project.
The contract should also stipulate when and how payments should be made for the construction work in question. It's possible that you could be asked for a deposit, but you shouldn't pay out any significant amounts of money before work begins. Larger building projects are typically paid for in stages, and you'll only pay on the completion of each stage when you're happy that the stage has been completed successfully.
A snag list of any minor faults can be gathered together during a final inspection of the completed project which will involve the client and builder. A common sense approach is needed by both sides when managing this list, and it should comply with the formal contract that was signed at the beginning of the project. As both parties complete a final building inspection there should be a mutually acceptable agreement to the contents of the snagging list and explanations on how to correct any faults discussed. When the snagging list has been done, the site has been cleared of materials and tools and all work is finished, the final payment for the job can be made.
If you cultivate a good line of communication with your builder, you are putting down a good foundation in the smooth and efficient running of your construction project. At all times you need to be ready to talk over any problems or changes in your project with the builder, and you should do this as soon as something arises. If you have a good level of communication with the builders you are less likely to wait for the "right" time to talk to them, especially since the longer a problem is left, the more difficult it is to correct.
It is possible that you'll be living and in close collaboration with your building contractors on a daily basis for a period of time, on a substantial project. It is vital that you've got trust and confidence in your Martock building contractor and whose understanding of the construction industry and experience in your kind of project is totally dependable. Any qualifications, accreditations and memberships held by the builder from professional trade bodies can help to reassure you.
