It matters not if you are building your own house, renovating a basement, having an extension built or any other project, your Peebles builders must be professional, reliable and adequately qualified to carry out the task. Start off by asking for suggestions from friends and neighbours. A builder who's excellent word of mouth recommendations is one you should put on your list of possible contractors to ask for an estimate.

Builders Peebles Scotland (EH45)

If there's no-one who can supply you with a good endoresement or recommendation then you'll need to look for a reliable Peebles building contractor by asking experts in the industry. The FMB (Federation of Master Builders) holds a database of members that come guaranteed and with an FMB insurance supported warranty as standard. This reassurance can be crucial during a stressful building project, especially when problems are encountered.

It is prudent to have details of your project ready prior to requesting a quotation from a building firm in Peebles. A definitive quote can only be made if you explain in detail the scope and requirements of your construction project. If it's a large undertaking you could ask your building contractor to manage all stages of the work, from design and planning to the actual construction works, whilst modest building work should enable you to have some ideas and designs to show a contractor in order to receive a precise estimate.

If you've got architectural drawings, you should make photocopies and pass them on to any Peebles builders providing a price quote, together with a detailed written summary of the work. By having such paperwork ready it sets out a precise plan which a decent contractor can use as a template for the undertaking. When you get your quote you will also be handed a rough timeframe for your building project.

Price quotes can fluctuate considerably, however if there is one that is much lower than the others you must get the builder to clarify why this is so and to make certain that they have fully understood your needs. If they are unable to break down the costs or give a credible answer to explain the quote, then it may be better to consider a different builder, even if they happen to be a little bit more expensive.

Do not make any hasty decisions when selecting a builder in Peebles, or feel pushed into picking a particular one; an excellent tip is to hold back for a day or so and look over all of the quotes once again. You should pay special attention to anything that's NOT included in the final price given. Certain building contractors might not itemise building waste and rubble removal for example. Any building waste has to be removed and disposed of properly and if it isn't included in the initial estimate you need to ask who's responsible for the site clearance on completion.

You might also need to ensure any fixtures and fittings you want for your project are up to your specifications. Things like this must be specified on your written summary and accordingly quoted for by your builder. If you've made specified demands you might need to confirm these are replicated in your quotation.

As soon as you've decided on a suitable Peebles builder and agreed on their quote there is one more bit of paperwork to deal with. Before the real work starts the builder should prepare a contract that protects both of you. This contract will be distinct to your job and will deal with areas like what materials are to be used, specific fittings or fixtures, clearing of the site before work begins (yours or their responsibility), and what will happen if there any complications or delays in the work. The contract should declare what warranty period you may have and precisely what the builder's guarantee covers with regards to their work and/or materials used for the project.

If you've agreed on a schedule and method of payment, this will also be noted in the contract, or a builder will indicate when and how any payments are completed. It is entirely possible you may be asked for a deposit, however you should never pay any substantial amounts of money prior to work beginning. Payments should only be made when each stage of a building project has been finished, and then only when you are happy with the work.

A final inspection should be carried out between the builder and client and any work that needs to be corrected, or small details overlooked during the building stage should be documented. This snag list should point out any problems that need fixing in line with the terms of the contract that was agreed by both parties before construction work started. A final inspection does not have the objective of picking fault with the work, but is done to address any concerns about the finished building project and the means by which to correct them. Only when all work is finished to your satisfaction and any snags rectified, should the final payment for the job be given to the builder.

If you develop a good line of communication with your builder, you are establishing a good foundation in the smooth running of your project. You need to be prepared to talk over any problems or changes in your project with your building contractor, and you must do this the instant something arises. It becomes much more difficult to put something right the longer it's left to fester, and you will both appreciate good communication from the start.

For bigger building projects you must understand that you will be in close cooperation with your builders on a daily basis. Having trust and confidence in the builder's experience, skills and qualifications can make this extra stress that little bit easier to live with. Any accreditations, memberships and qualifications held by your builders from professional associations can help to give you reassurance.

There are a number of associations that offer project management training, building and construction skills and technical building classes for workers at every level. Membership schemes exist through more than 30 associations to put the spotlight on qualifications and individual expertise, or to accentuate the professionalism and reliability of a building company. The most widely acknowledged of these schemes to watch out for within the building industry are:

The Construction Industry Council - The CIC (Construction Industry Council) has approximately 500,000 individual building professionals and more than 25,000 construction consultants in its membership. The CIC represents highly skilled technicians and management level individuals such as technical consultants, site agents and designers.

The Construction Skills Certification Scheme - The minimum required certification for any worker on a building site is the Construction Skills Certification Scheme (CSCS) card. The CSCS card shows competence in the CITB's Health, Safety and Environment exam along with showcasing the construction training and qualifications of the person.

The variously coloured CSCS cards display at a glance the level of responsibility and expertise that the person has. You will be able to find more information and see the various different roles and cards on the CSCS website.

The Federation of Master Builders - The Federation of Master Builders is the de-facto membership for many building contractors, not merely in Peebles, but across Great Britain. The benefits of using an FMB affiliated building company are the guarantees and reassurances that this large trade body offers to its membership and their clients.
