Builder Neath Wales (SA10): With so many builders and construction companies to choose from in the Neath area, it can be a hard choice in picking the best one for your building project. From specialist building contractors, house builders, to general builders; how can you possibly know which to use? To find the best Neath builder for your particular needs, here are some helpful advice and tips.
Whatever the size of your building venture; a home extension, a cellar restoration, a full house build or just a new garden wall, you want a professional, qualified and reliable Neath builder to do the task. The first thing you can do is ask family and friends for suggestions. If your neighbours or friends have previously had construction work completed and they are happy with how the work went, then you could hardly get a more resounding recommendation for a building contractor.
If there is no-one who can give you a good recommendation or endorsement you will need to search for a professional Neath builder through industry experts. You are able to find builders and building contractors who are supported by guarantees and insurances on the FMB (Federation of Master Builders) list of endorsed builders. When stuff goes wrong on a construction project, this insurance and peace of mind from the Federation of Master Builders can prove to be vital.
Before asking a building contractor in Neath for a job quote you'll want to have a few details prepared in advance. A definitive quote can only be prepared if you explain in clear detail the requirements and scope of your construction project. You could obviously use your builder to oversee the planning and design of your building works, but for modest building tasks it is best to have your requirements prepared when you first get in touch with a building contractor.
If you have any architect's drawings, you should make photocopies and pass them on to any Neath builder supplying a quotation, together with an in-depth written summary of the work. By having such paperwork ready it sets out a defined plan which an experienced building contractor will be able to use as a working template for the project. Any price quote you receive will usually also come together with an estimated timeframe to complete the build.
Certain Neath builders will usually give a cheaper quote than others, however you need to ask yourself how they are able to achieve this without corner-cutting or using inferior materials. If they can't give a credible answer or break down the costs to explain the quotation, then it may be best to look at a different building contractor, even if they happen to be a bit more expensive.
Don't make any rash decisions in choosing a building contractor in Neath, or feel forced into picking one in particular; an excellent suggestion is to wait for twenty four hours and look over each of the estimates again. You need to 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 must be removed and disposed of properly and if it isn't included in the quote you have been given you need to ask who's responsible for the site clearance on completion.
Another thing to think about is the finish, design and style of any fittings and fixtures that you need. Seeing that particular styles will have to be sourced from different suppliers, your written summary needs to have as much detail with regard to the fittings you've chosen, to enable the builder to present you with an exact price. If the price quote doesn't specify your requirements you could end up with a cheaper option to reduce costs.
Okay, so you have found a price quote that you're happy with and you're now ready to hire your builder. A contract should be drawn up by the building company to set out the details of the undertaking. This will include stuff like responsibilities in clearing the site before work begins and on completion, the materials to be used and where to store them on site, specifics of fixtures and fittings, as well as the making good of any snags during and at the end of the project. The contract will set out the warranty period that you get and what the guarantees from the builder cover with regards to their work or/and materials used on the project.
It may also set out the payment schedule for the building work. If you're requested to pay a deposit you should be cautious about paying large sums of cash to a builder before any construction work has started. Bigger construction projects are usually paid for in phases, and you'll pay on completion of each stage and only when you're happy that the work has been carried out correctly.
At the end of any project there should be a final inspection of the work between the builder and the client to ensure that all work has been completed satisfactorily and a snagging list made up, if needed. A snagging list is a way for a builder to rectify any minor issues discovered at the termination of the project, and should be in line with the signed contract between both sides. Both sides should be open to the other's point of view and be ready to put forward a solution in order that everybody can feel satisfied with the building works completion. When all work is completed, the snagging list has been done and the site has been cleared of materials and tools, the final payment can be made.
It is unfortunate that many construction projects turn bad because of a lack of communication between the builder and customer. If there's something you'd like to modify, or you notice a problem coming to light you need to talk to the building company at once. It gets far more difficult to put an issue right the longer it is left to fester, and you'll both appreciate good communication from the start.
It's quite possible that you'll be living and in close dialogue with your building company on a day to day basis for a period of time. Having trust and confidence in you Neath builder's experience, skills and qualifications can mean that this extra stress is a little bit easier to bear.
