Certain Prestonpans builders will naturally give a cheaper quote than others, however you need to ask yourself how they are able to achieve this without skimping or using low quality materials. As a potential customer you're within your rights to request a suitable explanation and see an itemised break down of the estimated costs, and if the builder is unable to provide this it might be better to be safe than sorry and consider another company for the job.

Should you feel uncertain about any part of the price quote in relation to your fixtures and fittings, this is the time to raise questions and make sure that you will not have any unwanted surprises once the building work commences.

When you've chosen a suitable Prestonpans building company and approved their quotation there's one more piece of paperwork to get through. To secure both parties' interests, the building contractor ought to present you with a written contract to be signed before the real work commences.
