If there is no-one who can give you a good recommendation then you'll have to search for a reliable Sudbury builder via the experts in the industry. A list of reliable builders and building companies is held by the Federation of Master Builders (FMB), who back each signed up member with an insurance backed warranty and guarantees on any work that they do. This form of peace of mind can be crucial during a nerve-racking construction project, especially when problems are encountered.

It's wise to have details on your project ready prior to asking any contractor in Sudbury for a price quote. An accurate quote can only be prepared if you explain in clear detail the scope and requirements of your construction project. You of course could use your builder to oversee the management and planning of your project, however for modest building jobs it's wise to have your specifications prepared when you first get in touch with a building contractor.

If you've got architectural drawings, you should make copies and give them to any Sudbury builders supplying a quote, together with an in-depth written brief. By having this paperwork ready it sets out a precise plan which an experienced building contractor can use as a template for the undertaking. Any quote you get will usually also come together with an estimated timeline for the completion of the build.

Quotes can differ significantly, however if there is one that is much lower than the rest you must get the builder to clarify why this is so and to make sure that they fully understand your needs. As a potential client you are within your rights to ask for a credible explanation and see a break down of cost, and if the builder is unable or unwilling to supply this it could be in your best interests to look at another contractor for the task.

Once you have received all the estimates, do not be in a panic to choose a building company in Sudbury; sleep on it and the next day go over all of the quotations again to cover all your bases. Consider what's included, and more importantly, what isn't included in the price. As an example, some building companies may cut costs by not adding waste removal from the site at the end of the work. All building waste must be disposed of correctly and if it is not included in the quotation you must ask who's responsible for the site clean-up on completion.

Another thing to consider is the finish, design and style of any fittings and fixtures that you require. This is an issue that needs to be made clear on your written summary given to the builders to enable them to source the items and include them in their quote. If you've made specified demands you may need to verify these are reflected in your estimate.

So, you have come to a decision, you've got an estimate that you are happy with and you've hired your chosen Sudbury builder. To secure both parties' interests, the builder should supply you with a written contract to be signed before any physical work begins. This will likely include items such as; clearance of the site before work starts (theirs or your responsibility), specifics of fittings and fixtures, what materials are to be used, and there should also be a resolution for any issues or snags. There should also be reference to the warranty period and guarantee of the work involved.

This contract should also set out when and how payments need to be made for the construction work in question. Your builder might ask for a small deposit, although it is not advisable to pay substantial cash payments up front. If you're paying for your project in stages, you should only be asked to pay upon each stage completion, and when you are happy with the standard of the work that has been done.

A snag list of any minor faults can be done during the final inspection of the finished project by the client and builder. A common sense approach is necessary by both sides when dealing with this list, and it should adhere to the formal contract that was agreed at the start of the project. A final inspection is not used to pick faults in the work, but is undertaken to deal with any concerns about the final stage of the building project and how to fix them. The final payment for the job can be made once any snags have been rectified, site waste has been removed (if included in contract) and all the work has been finished.

A good level of communication between the builder and you is crucial in order to keep a construction project running smoothly. If there is something you'd like to change, or you notice an issue coming to light you need to talk to the building company as soon as possible. The longer you leave something to fester, the harder it is for the builder to resolve and creating a good relationship from the outset is vital.

You may be living in close contact on a day to day basis with your building team for some time if the construction project is a large one. Having trust and confidence in you Sudbury builder's skills, qualifications and experience can make this extra stress that little bit easier to bear. You can accomplish this by investigating a builder's affiliations and memberships of trade organisations, and asking precisely what experience and qualifications their workers have.
