Builder Wallsend Tyne and Wear (NE28): Picking out the right builder for your Wallsend construction project can be challenging with the large number available. Should you use a house builder, a general builder or a specialist building contractor for your project, and how should you go about choosing? To assist you in finding the best Wallsend building contractor for your venture below are some useful tips and guidance to set you on your way.
It does not matter if you're upgrading a cellar, having an extension built, building your own house or any other project you're considering, your Wallsend builder must be professional, reliable and qualified to do the job. The initial thing you can do is ask friends and neighbours for suggestions. A builder who has excellent word of mouth recommendations is one you should add to your list of possible contractors to ask for an estimate.
If there is nobody that can give you a decent endoresement or recommendation then you will need to look for a trusted Wallsend building company by asking industry experts. You are able to find professional individual builders and companies who are covered by insurances and guarantees on the Federation of Master Builders list of approved builders. If anything happens to go wrong on a building project, this reassurance from the FMB can prove invaluable.
Before requesting a quote from a building company in Wallsend you'll need to have some details prepared beforehand. If the project isn't made crystal clear, it becomes extremely difficult for any builder to supply an accurate quote. You could obviously use your builder to oversee the management and design of the building works, however for modest building jobs it's wise to have your specifications prepared when you first make contact with a building contractor.
You should have a written brief of all your specifications together with photocopies of architectural drawings to hand over to every Wallsend builder who provides a quote. By doing this you're outlining your exact needs from the outset. In addition to a detailed quotation your builder will also establish an approximate timeframe to complete the work.
Price quotes can vary significantly, but if there is one that is much cheaper than the others you should ask the builder to explain why this is so and to ensure that they have fully understood your requirements. As a possible customer you're perfectly within your rights to ask for a convincing explanation and receive an itemised break down of cost, and if the builder is unable or unwilling to supply this it could be better to be safe than sorry and look at another company for the work.
Once you have received all the estimates, do not be in a hurry to choose a builder in Wallsend; sleep on your decision and the next day you can check over all the quotations again just to be on the safe side. Pay particular attention to anything that's NOT included in the final price. Certain builders may not itemise rubble and building waste removal as an example. All building waste must be removed and disposed of correctly and if it's not included in the quotation you need to ask who's liable for the clearance of the site on completion.
Another aspect to consider is the finish, style and design of any fixtures and fittings that you require. Since certain designs will have to be procured from different retailers, your written brief needs to have as much detail as possible with regard to the accessories you've chosen, to enable the builder to present you with a totally accurate quote. If you have made specified demands you may need to verify that these are reflected in your quote.
Once you've picked out a suitable Wallsend builder and accepted their estimate there is one more piece of paperwork to get through. Before any actual physical work starts your builder should draw up a contract for the protection of both of you. This contract will be distinct to your particular project and could list things like removal of building waste and rubbish, specific fittings or fixtures, materials, and what to do if there any delays in or complications with the work. It should in addition discuss any agreed warranty period and what the guarantee covers in regard to materials and construction work.
It could also determine the payment method for the project. The builder may want a small deposit, although it is not advisable to pay significant cash payments up front. Payments should only be made when each phase of a building project has been finished, and only when you are satisfied with the quality of the work.
At the conclusion of any project there will be a final inspection of the work between the builder and the client to ensure that all work has been finished to a good standard and a snagging list of minor errors compiled, if needed. A snag list is a way for a builder to fix any minor issues found at the termination of the project, and should be in keeping with the the contract that was agreed by both parties. A final inspection does not have the aim of picking fault with the work, but is carried out to take care of any concerns over the outcome of the building project and the means by which to rectify them in a satisfactory way. Only when any snags have been rectified and all work is completed to your satisfaction, should the final payment for the job be given to the builder.
It is unfortunate that a lot of building projects go bad because of poor communication between the client and builder. If you should notice an issue, or something you'd like to alter during the project, talk to your builder right away. The longer you leave a problem to develop, the harder it is for the building company to rectify and setting up a good rapport from the start is crucial.
You could on a daily basis be living in close contact with your building team for some time if the project is a substantial one. You should always have complete understanding and trust in this case with your Wallsend builder and his workforce. Any accreditations, qualifications and memberships held by the building company from industry professional organisations can help to give you reassurance.
Within the building trade there are several professional associations that supply training in building skills and project management for all levels of the building workforce. There are furthermore over 30 trade associations with membership schemes to highlight the professionalism and skills of the individual builders and for building companies. Organisations that are highly regarded in the construction trade are:
The Construction Skills Certification Scheme - To be permitted to work on any building site or seek employment by a building company, an individual has to hold a card under the Construction Skills Certification Scheme (CSCS). The CSCS card showcases a worker's qualifications, (Postgraduate Degree, Diploma, NVQ and Degree) in the construction industry along with their certification from the CITB Health, Safety and Environment examination.
There are a number of variously coloured cards issued by the CSCS scheme, with each colour identifying a different proficiency or qualification level of the holder. To gather more information about the CSCS scheme and the roles and responsibilities of the different card colours you can visit their website.
The Construction Industry Council - The CIC (Construction Industry Council) is the biggest of the building industry's trade organisations with over 25,000 construction consultants and approximately 500,000 building professionals listed amongst its members. The vast majority of those individuals with CIC membership hold responsible and skilled roles in the building industry, for instance technical consultants, designers and building site managers.
The Federation of Master Builders - The Federation of Master Builders (FMB) is the de-facto membership for countless construction companies, not simply in Wallsend, but right across the UK. The advantages of using an FMB affiliated building company are the guarantees and reassurances that this leading trade organisation offers to its members and their customers.
