The next best way to uncover an experienced Prescot building contractor is to ask specialists within the industry. You can locate professional individual builders and companies who are supported by guarantees and insurances on the Federation of Master Builders (FMB) list of approved contractors. This form of peace of mind can be priceless during a stressful building project, especially when problems are encountered.

It is advisable to prepare the details about your project prior to asking any contractor in Prescot for a quote. An accurate quotation can only be put together if you lay out in detail the requirements and scope of your construction project. If it's a large construction project you could ask your building company to oversee all stages of the work, from planning and design to full construction works, whilst more modest building tasks should enable you to have some ideas and designs ready and prepared to show a contractor in order to receive a precise quotation.

You should make photocopies of any architectural drawings or written design requirements and pass them on to any Prescot builders who you ask for a job quote. That way you are describing your exact needs right from the start. When you get your quote you will usually also be handed an approximated timeframe for the project.

Price quotes can differ considerably, but if there are one or two much lower than the rest you should get the builder to explain why this is the case and to check they fully understand your requirements. As a prospective customer you are within your rights to request an acceptable explanation and see a break down of the estimated costs, and if the builder is unable to provide this it could be in your best interests to look at another contractor for the task.

Once you have received all the estimates, don't be in a hurry to decide on a building company in Prescot; sleep on it and the following day go over all the job quotes once more to be on the safe side. Assess what's included in the price, and even more important what isn't included. As an example, certain building companies might cut costs by not including waste removal from the site at the end of the project. The rubble and debris from any building work should be removed and disposed of in a safe and regulated fashion, in line with local legislation, and this can be a costly extr outlay if it is not included in the estimate you've been presented with.

Another thing to consider is the design, finish and style of any fixtures and fittings that you need. This should be specified on your original written summary and quoted for accordingly by the builder. Should you feel at all uncertain about any aspect of the quote in relation to your fixtures and fittings, this is the time to clarify the situation and be certain you will not get any unwanted surprises during the project.

So, you have made up your mind, you've got a quote that you are happy with and you have gone ahead and hired your your chosen Prescot building contractor. A contract should now be drawn up by the building company to set out details of the project. This contract should be distinct to your job and could deal with things like materials, clearing of the site before work starts, specific fixtures or fittings, and what will happen if there any delays in or complications with the work. It should also discuss any agreed warranty period and what the guarantee covers with regards to building work and materials.

It might also set out the payment method for the project. If you're requested to pay a deposit you should be cautious about paying out significant sums of money to a builder before any work has actually commenced. Bigger construction projects are generally paid for in phases, and you'll only pay on the completion of each stage when you're satisfied that the stage has been accomplished correctly.

At the end of the project there needs to be a final inspection of the work involving the client and the builder to make sure all construction work has been completed to a good standard and a snag list compiled, if necessary. This snagging list should point out any issues that require rectifying in line with the terms of the contract that was signed by both sides before construction work started. A final inspection doesn't have the purpose of picking fault with the standard of the work, but is done to take care of any concerns about the completed building project and the means by which to rectify them in a satisfactory way. The final payment should be made when any snags have been put right, all work has been finished and site waste has been cleared (if part of the contract).
