Price quotes can fluctuate significantly, however if there are a couple that are much cheaper than the rest you must ask the builder to explain why this is so and to make certain that they fully understand your expectations. As a potential client you are within your rights to request a credible explanation and receive an itemised break down of cost, and if the builder is unwilling or unable to supply this it may be better to be safe than sorry and consider a different contractor for the project.

Before opting for which Ockbrook building contractor to employ have a final look over their quotations. Look at what is included in the price, and more importantly what ISN'T included. For example, some building companies might cut costs by not itemising waste removal from the site when the job is completed. The rubble and debris from any building work has to be disposed of in a safe and ethical fashion, in line with local guidelines, and this can be a rather expensive extra if it isn't included in the quote.

If you've a certain design or style you want for any fittings and fixtures for your building project in Ockbrook, these should also be priced for on the quote. As particular designs will need to be sourced from various retailers, your written brief needs to have as much detail regarding the accessories you have chosen, to enable the builder the information to provide you with a totally accurate price. If you feel at all uncertain about any aspect of the estimate in relation to your fixtures and fittings, this is the time to raise questions and ensure you will not get any unpleasant surprises once the work starts.

So, you've made up your mind, you have a price quote that you're happy with and you've hired your chosen builder. To protect both parties' interests, the building company ought to supply you with a contract to sign before the real work starts. This will likely include items such as; the materials to be used and where to store them on site, clearing of the site before work begins (yours or their responsibility), details of fixtures and fittings, and an entry for resolving any issues or snags. The contract will declare what warranty period you may have and precisely what the builder's guarantee covers in relation to their work or/and materials used on the project.

If you have agreed upon a schedule and method of payment, this will be laid out in this contract, or the builder will discuss how and when any payments are completed. The builder might ask for a deposit, however it is not advisable to pay large cash payments in advance. Payments should only be made when each part of a project has been finished, and only if you're happy with the quality of the work.

A final inspection should be made by the client and builder and any work that needs to be put right, or details missed during the building stage should be noted. A common sense approach is necessary by both parties when managing this list, and it should conform to the formal contract that was signed at the beginning of the project. Both parties need to be ready to accept the other's point of view and be prepared to offer a solution in order that everybody can feel satisfied with the final outcome. The final payment for the job can be made once site waste has been cleared (if included in contract), any snags have been rectified and all the work has been completed.
