In general, the next best way to find a respected Salisbury building contractor is to ask specialists within the industry. You can identify professional individual builders and companies who are covered by insurances and guarantees on the FMB (Federation of Master Builders) list of endorsed builders. An approved FMB builder will give you the self-confidence in knowing that your project will be successfully completed even if things appear to be going awry, or unexpected delays in construction occur.

Before requesting an estimate from a building firm in Salisbury you'll need to have a few details ready in advance. A precise quotation can only be put together if you explain in detail the requirements and scope of your building project. You should be able to show some dimensions and designs for smaller building tasks, a garden wall for example, but if it's a more substantial kind of project you can ask your builder for assistance right from the planning and design stage right through to the management of the build to completion.

You should have a written summary of all your requirements together with photocopies of architectural drawings to give to every Salisbury builder who supplies a price quote. By doing this you are setting out your exact requirements from the outset. Any price quote you receive will usually also come with an estimated timeline for finishing the build.

Certain Salisbury builders will naturally give a cheaper quotation than the others, however you need to ask how they're able to do this without corner-cutting or using inferior components. As a prospective customer you're perfectly within your rights to ask for a convincing explanation and receive a break down of the estimated costs, and if the builder is unable or unwilling to provide this it might be better to be safe than sorry and consider a different company for the project.

Don't make any rash decisions when selecting a building contractor in Salisbury, or feel forced into going for one in particular; a great tip is to wait for twenty four hours and read through all the quotations once more. Consider what is included in the price, and more to the point what isn't included. If there is no listing on your quotation for rubble and building waste removal, for instance, you need to ask if this will be included at no extra charge. Any building waste has to be removed and disposed of properly and if it isn't included in the quotation you have been presented with you have to ask who's responsible for the clearance of the site on completion.

You may also need to double check that any fittings and fixtures you need for your project are to your specifications. This must be stated on your written brief and quoted for accordingly by your builder. If you have made specific demands you might need to confirm that these are reflected in your quotation.

When you have chosen a suitable Salisbury building contractor and agreed on their estimate there is one further piece of paperwork to deal with. Before any actual physical work commences the builder should write up a contract to safeguard you both. This will include things like the materials to be used and where to store them on site, details of fixtures and fittings, clearance of the site before work begins (theirs or your responsibility), as well as the doing any "snagging" during and at the conclusion of the project. There should additionally be mention of the warranty period and guarantee of the work involved.

If you have come to an agreement on a schedule and method of payment, this will also be mentioned in this contract. If you're asked for a deposit you need to be cautious about paying out substantial amounts of money to a builder before any construction work has started. Installments should only be paid when each part of a building project has been finished, and then only if you're pleased with the standard of the work.

A snag list of any minor faults can be gathered together during the final inspection of the finished project which will involve the client and the builder. This snagging list should pinpoint any problems that need rectification in line with the terms of the contract that was agreed by both sides before work started. Each side should be accepting of the other's point of view and be willing to put forward a solution so that everyone can feel happy with the building works completion. When the site has been cleared of tools and materials, the snag list has been done and all work is finished, the final payment for the job can be made.

It is regrettable that a lot of construction projects turn sour due to poor communication between the builder and client. You always need to be able to discuss any problems or changes in your project with the building company, and you need to do this the moment something crops up. The longer that you leave a problem to develop, the harder it is for the builders to put right and having a good relationship from the outset is crucial.

You could on a day to day basis be living in close proximity and for some time with your building team if the project is a substantial one. Having trust and confidence in the builder's experience, skills and qualifications can make this extra stress that little bit easier to live with. You can achieve this by investigating your builder's affiliations and memberships of professional trade bodies, and asking exactly what experience and qualifications their workforce has.

Within the building industry there are plenty of qualification opportunities for project management, hands-on skills and other building related topics from a wide range of professional bodies and organisations. There are membership schemes available from over thirty trade organisations to put the spotlight on qualifications and individual skills, or to showcase the professionalism and trustworthiness of a building company. Trade associations that are held in high regard in the building trade are:

There are a number of variously coloured cards included in the CSCS scheme, with each colour demonstrating a different ability or qualification level of the holder. More details can be found at the CSCS website.

Salisbury Skip Hire

When carrying out a construction project in Salisbury, or any other kind of home or garden makeover, it is almost certain that a substantial amount of waste and rubbish will be produced that can't be dumped into your standard household wheelie bins. In fact, the environmentally safe disposal of any building or garden waste is managed by most local councils in the UK. Therefore if you are to safely remain within the law, you will have to transport your rubbish to an official disposal and recycling centre, normally a council tip. Rather than undergoing constant trips back and forth to the local council tip with your waste materials, you could think about hiring a skip instead.

Skip Hire Salisbury

Skip hire companies in Salisbury can provide you with guarantees that all your waste will finish up at a certified site for correct and safe disposal, so you'll not have to fret. Talk to the skip hire provider about the kind of waste products that are going to be created by the building project, and also double check this with your building works contractor. For example if asbestos may be involved, it might mean that your skip hire service will need to divide hazardous waste into a separate disposal system.

The safe disposal of hazardous waste is best left to the professionals and there are stringent rules for dealing with it. To make certain all regulations and guidelines are dealt with effectively, both your contractor and the skip hire provider will work closely together.

If your driveway or garden has a space when a skip could be positioned, then you should have no problems. However, if you've not got a suitable area, or you generally park your car on the street, you may need to ask one of your nearby neighbours if they're able to leave you a bit of space. If you want a skip to sit on the roadside, you will need a temporary permit or licence from the local council, but this is not needed for a driveway or private land in Salisbury. Call you local council offices to find out if you require one. This will help save you getting into hot water for an illegally placed skip.

Salisbury skip hire companies offer skips of all sizes and shapes, and it's possible to rent anything from mini-skips and skip bags right up to builders skips and massive roll-on roll-off monstrosities. For Salisbury skip hire quotes GO HERE.
