Builder Ware Hertfordshire (SG11): Picking the right builder for your Ware building project can be tricky with so many on offer. From specialist building contractors, house builders, to general builders; how can you possibly know which one to use? To help you on your way, below are some advice and tips on finding the best building company at the best price.
It matters not if you're renovating a basement, getting an extension built, building your own home or some other project you're considering, your Ware building contractor must be professional, reliable and properly qualified to complete the task. For starters you can try asking for recommendations from friends and family. If your friends or neighbours have previously had building work undertaken and they are pleased with the result, then that is the best advertisement for a building contractor.
If you cannot find anybody who can recommend a building contractor in Ware then ask the professionals. The Federation of Master Builders holds a database of registered members that come guaranteed and with an FMB insurance backed warranty as standard. An approved FMB building contractor will give you the self-assurance in the knowledge that your project will be successfully completed even when problems occur, or unexpected delays in building are taking place.
You will have to get a few things prepared before asking a builder in Ware for a job quote. They won't be able to come up with a definitive price if it isn't crystal clear precisely what you want. If it's a large undertaking you can ask a building company to oversee all stages of the work, from planning and design to complete construction, while modest building work should enable you to have some designs and ideas ready and prepared to show a builder so as to receive an exact quotation.
You should make duplicates of any architectural drawings or written design requirements and hand them over to any Ware builders who you ask for an estimate. This way you're both clear on the envisioned outcome of your project. When you get your quote you will usually also be handed a rough timescale for the project.
Some Ware builders will naturally give a cheaper quote than others, however you need to ask how they can do this without cutting corners or using substandard components. If they cannot give a suitable answer or a break down of the costs to explain the quotation, then it might be better to consider a different building company, even if they are a bit more expensive.
As soon as you've received all the estimates, don't be in a rush to pick a builder in Ware; sleep on your decision and the following day go over all the quotes once again to be on the safe side. Pay special attention to anything that's NOT included in the total price. For example, some builders may reduce the quote by not including waste removal from the site at the end of the project. All building waste must be removed and disposed of properly and if it isn't included in the initial estimate you need to ask who's liable for the site clearance on completion.
If you have a particular style or design you want for any fixtures and fittings for your construction project in Ware, these should also be included and highlighted the quotation. Stuff like this should be stipulated on your original written brief and accordingly quoted for by the builder. Should you feel at all uncertain about any element of the quotation in relation to your accessories, now is a good time to clarify the situation and be certain you won't have any unwanted surprises during the project.
So, you have come to a decision, you've got a quote that you are satisfied with and you have gone ahead and appointed your building contractor. To safeguard both parties' interests, the builder should provide you with a written contract to sign before any work starts. This contract will be unique to your building project and could cover areas like what materials are to be used, removal of building waste and rubbish, specifics of fittings and fixtures, and what will be done if there any problems or delays in the project. It should additionally explain any warranty period and what any guarantees cover in respect of materials and building work.
This contract should also specify how and when payments need to be made for the work in question. Your builder may need a deposit, but it is not advisable to pay substantial cash payments up front. If you're paying for your building project in stages, you should only be asked to pay upon each stage completion, and when you are satisfied with the work that has been accomplished.
A final inspection will be made between the client and builder and any work that needs to be put right, or items missed through the building phase should be written down. A snagging list is a means by which a builder can fix any minor problems found at the termination of the project, and should be in accordance with the the contract that was agreed by both sides. Both parties should be accepting of the other's viewpoint and be prepared to offer a solution so that everyone can feel pleased with the building works completion. The final payment for the job should be made when any snags have been made good, all the work has been completed and site waste has been removed (if part of the contract).
It is a sad fact that some building projects turn bad owing to lack of communication between builder and client. If there is something you want to change, or you notice an issue coming to light you should talk to the building contractor ASAP. If you've got a good level of communication with your building company you're less inclined to wait for the "right" time to speak with them, particularly since the longer a problem is left, the more difficult it is to rectify.
For larger construction projects you must appreciate that you'll be in close cooperation with your builder for some time. You must always have complete understanding and trust in this case with your Ware builders and their workforce. You can achieve this by checking out a building company's memberships and affiliations of professional trade bodies, and enquiring about precisely what experience and qualifications their workforce has.
Within the building industry there are lots of qualifications for hands-on skills, project management and other building and construction related help from a wide range of professional organisations.
