Beginning a building project is a big deal and you will want the very best team with you on your journey. Thankfully, there are steps you can take to ensure you choose the right crew:
Check their qualifications – There are trade organisations that builders can become associated with which will provide you with peace of mind that certain standards are guaranteed. Check to see if the builder you are considering has a membership with any respected trade organisations. For more information on Building Services Manchester, visit a site like Piggot and Whitfield.
Quotes – You should aim for quotes from around 3 different companies but make sure that it is a detailed quote and not a ballpark figure. If you don’t know how much jobs are likely to cost, there is a lot of useful information on the RICS website including details on building costs.
Budget – Ideally, you’ll want your building firm to stick to your budget. It is wise to have a project schedule and payment plan which should be agreed before work commences. Don’t be tempted to hand over large amounts of money before the project starts but instead agree staged payments on completion of different stages.
Communication – On any job, things will go wrong, and a great building firm will let you know immediately if this happens and keep you informed. A good way to get an idea of how well you will get on with your chosen builder is to check their reviews from previous clients.
