Certain Peterhead builders will naturally quote a lower price than others, however you need to ask yourself how they're able to do this without corner-cutting or using low quality materials. If they're unable to give a suitable answer or a break down of the costs to explain the quote, then it may be advisable to look at a different building contractor, even if they happen to be somewhat more expensive.

As soon as you have received all the estimates, you shouldn't be in a hurry to choose a builder in Peterhead; sleep on it and the following day go over all the price quotes once again to play it safe. You should pay special attention to anything that's NOT included in the final price. Some builders may not itemise building waste and rubble removal as an example. This has to be disposed of in a responsible and ethical manner and should you discover that it's not part of the estimate then you should ask why.

You may also need to affirm any fixtures and fittings you want for your build are up to your exact specifications. This should be stipulated on your original written brief and quoted for accordingly by the builder. If the price quote does not stipulate your exact specifications you might find a cheaper alternative being used to reduce costs.

When you have settled on a suitable Peterhead building contractor and agreed on their estimate there is one further piece of paperwork to get through. To secure both parties' interests, the builder should supply you with a contract to sign before any work begins. This contract will be distinct to your particular building project and will cover areas like materials, removal of building waste and rubbish, details of fixtures and fittings, and what will be done if there any problems or delays in the work. The contract should set out the warranty period that you get and what the guarantees from the builder cover in relation to their work or/and materials that are used on the project.

If you have agreed on a payment schedule, this will be included in the contract. It is entirely possible that you could be asked for a small deposit, but you should never pay out any large amounts of money before the work begins. If you're paying for your project in stages, you should only pay as each stage is finished, and when you're pleased with the work that has been done.

A snag list of any minor faults can be made during the final inspection of the finished project which will involve the client and builder. A snagging list is a means by which a builder can correct any minor problems found at the end of the project, and should be tackled in keeping with the signed contract between both sides. Both sides need to be accepting of the other's viewpoint and be ready to put forward a solution in order that everybody can feel pleased with the final result. When all work is finished, the site has been cleared of materials and tools and the snagging list has been accomplished, the final payment can be made.
