They won't be able to come up with a definitive price if it isn't clear exactly what you need. If it's a large undertaking you could ask your building company to supervise every stage of the work, from management and planning to complete construction works, while modest building work should enable you to have some ideas and designs to show a builder in order to get an exact quotation.

Have a written summary of all your requirements as well as copies of architectural drawings to give to all Wareham builders who are presenting a quote. This way you're both clear about the anticipated outcome of your project. When you obtain your estimate you will usually also be given a rough timescale for the building project.

Quotations can vary considerably, however if there are a couple that are much lower than the rest you must ask the builder to explain why this is the case and to check they fully understand your requirements. If they can't give a suitable answer or a break down of the costs to explain the quotation, then it may be wise to look at a different builder, even if they happen to be a bit more expensive.

Before opting for which Wareham building contractor to use have a final read through of their job quotes. A quote might not exactly break down every part of the project, however there should be a checklist of stages in the build process, and you're looking for things that haven't been included in the initial estimation. For example, some building companies might cut costs by not including waste removal at the end of the work. This must be disposed of in a responsible manner and should you discover it's not part of the quotation you need to find out why.

You might also need to affirm any fixtures and fittings you require for your project match up to your exact specifications. This is something that should be made clear on your written summary given to the builders to allow them to procure the items and include them in their quotation. If you have made specific demands you may need to confirm these are replicated in your quotation.

So, you've made up your mind, you have an estimate you're happy with and you have appointed your building contractor. A contract should be drafted by the builder to specify the details of the work. This contract will be distinct to your job and could list things like what materials are to be used, specific fittings or fixtures, clearing of the site before work begins (yours or their responsibility), and what will occur if there any issues or delays in the work. It should additionally explain any agreed warranty period and what any guarantees cover in regard to building work and materials.

If you've come to an agreement on a payment method, this will be included in the contract. Your builder may want a modest deposit, however it is advised not to pay significant cash payments up front. Larger construction projects are typically paid for in phases, and you'll only pay on the completion of each stage when you are satisfied that the stage has been carried out successfully.

A final inspection will be made by the client and builder and any items that need to be corrected, or small details overlooked through the construction stage needs to be documented. A common sense approach is required by both parties when managing this list, and it should observe the contract that was agreed at the beginning of the project. As both sides carry out a final building inspection there needs to be a mutually acceptable agreement to any snag list and a discussion should take place as to how any faults will be remedied. The final payment for the job should be made when site waste has been cleared (if part of the contract), any snags have been made good and all work has been finished.

It is unfortunate that quite a few construction projects turn bad because of lack of communication between the builder and customer. If there is something you'd like to change, or you notice an issue coming to light you should have a word with the building company at once.

For larger construction projects you need to understand that you'll be in close dialogue with your builder on a daily basis. You should have complete understanding and trust in this situation with your Wareham building contractors and their workers.
