If you don't know anybody who can recommend a building company in Sidmouth then you can ask the industry professionals. You can find builders and building companies who are backed by insurances and guarantees on the Federation of Master Builders (FMB) list of approved contractors. This peace of mind can be priceless during a stressful and nerve-racking construction project, particularly when things don't go to plan.

Before requesting an estimate from a building firm in Sidmouth you'll need to have some details prepared in advance. A precise quotation can only be put together if you explain in detail the scope and requirements of your construction project. If it's quite a large project you could ask a building contractor to manage every stage, from planning and design to complete construction works, while more modest building work should enable you to have some designs and ideas to show a contractor in order to get an exact quote.

If you have architect's drawings, you need to make copies and pass them to any Sidmouth builder supplying a quote, in addition to an in-depth written summary of the work. By following this process you will both be clear about the anticipated outcome of the project. Any quote you receive will usually also come together with an estimated timeframe for the completion of the build.

If you receive a quotation that is a lot cheaper than the others, take a moment to consider why this is and ask how they would be able to work for that price level without taking shortcuts on manpower or materials. If they're unable to give an acceptable answer or break down the costs to explain the quotation, then it might be best to consider a different building company, even if they happen to be a little more expensive.

Before deciding on which Sidmouth builder to use have a final look over their estimates. Look at what is included in the price, and more to the point what ISN'T included. If there's no listing on your quotation for building rubbish and rubble removal, for instance, you must ask them if this is included at no extra charge. The rubble and debris from any building work needs to be removed and disposed of in a safe and responsible fashion, in line with local regulations, and this can be a rather expensive extr outlay if it's not contained in the quote you've been given.

If you've a particular style or design you would like for any fittings and fixtures for your project in Sidmouth, these should also be priced for on the estimate. As certain styles will have to be procured from different suppliers, your written brief needs to have as much detail as possible regarding the accessories you've chosen, to allow the builder the information to provide you with an accurate quote. If the quote does not stipulate your exact accessories you may end up with a substandard option being used to cut costs.

So, you've found a quotation that you're satisfied with and you are in a position to hire your builder. Before the real work begins the builder should prepare a contract for the protection of you both. This will very likely include points such as; the materials to be used and where to store them on site, removal of building waste and rubbish, details of fittings and fixtures, and there'll be an entry for resolving any snags or problems. It should also explain any agreed warranty period and what any guarantees cover with regards to materials and building work.

If you have agreed on a payment method, this will also be noted in this contract. It is entirely possible that you may be asked for a deposit, however you shouldn't pay any significant amounts of money before work begins. Installments should only be paid when each part of a building project is completed, and then only when you're happy with the work.

At the end of the project there will be a final inspection of the work between the builder and client to ensure that all construction work has been finished to a good standard and a snagging list made up, if necessary. This snagging list should pinpoint any problems that require rectification as outlined by the contract terms that was agreed by both sides before construction work began. Each side needs to be accepting of the other's point of view and be ready to put forward a solution so that everyone can feel satisfied with the final result. The final payment for the job should be made once all work has been completed, any snags have been made good and site waste has been removed (if included in contract).

If you establish good lines of communication with your builder, you are setting a good foundation in the smooth running of your building project. If you find an issue, or something you'd like to change during the project, speak to your builder immediately. The longer that you leave an issue to develop, the more difficult it is for the building company to rectify and setting up a good rapport from the outset is essential.

It is entirely possible that you'll be living and in direct contact with the builders for a period of time and on a daily basis, on a larger project. It's essential that you have confidence and trust in your Sidmouth building company and whose understanding of the building trade and familiarity with your sort of project is totally reliable.
