HIRING TIPS TO FIND A BUILDER

If you're planning to have building work done on your home that goes beyond the realms of a simple DIY project, you need a good builder. Choosing the right one is key as you want to ensure the project is completed to the highest standards, and observes required regulations. It's also important that your builder is reliable and charges a fair and honest price for the work to be done, and ensures that both during the process and after, there's minimum disruption to you and your home. This entails the job is completed without unnecessary breaks in progress and the site is cleared of debris during and after the project. 

Feedback From Customers

If the builder you choose does state that they are a member of a trade body, make sure they're genuine. Check out any details they provide for total peace of mind. Don't be afraid to ask for references, either. A good builder will be happy to provide you with these details and you can contact previous customers directly to get their impression on the price and quality of work they had done.  Always for testimonials, ratings and reviews from past customers. Most good building trade professionals will have good reviews.

Check them out. Don't rush into accepting the first quote you receive.

Ask building contractors or construction companies quoting for past construction or building work examples. Check feedback from projects they've been involved in. Check photographs of work.  Check their company website. Check around a little. Go online.  Search for past reviews. If they have showrooms, workshop or offices, visit.

Don't forget to check building contractors out.  You're more likely to find a trusted builder.

Builders Insurances, Certifications, Trades Associations and Guarantees

Ask whether there is public liability insurance in place if your home gets damaged whilst building work is underway. What trades bodies and associations are they members of (e.g. Federation of Master Builders, Chartered Institute of Building, Construction Licensing Executive (Scotland Only), Federation of Master Builders (Scotland), Federation of Master Builders (Northern Ireland), National House Building Council, National House Building Council (Scotland), National Federation of Builder, National House Building Council (Northern Ireland)? What guarantees do they provide? With regards to qualifications, this will vary from trade to trade and depends on building and construction projects undertaken. As building companies often deal with multi-trade jobs, it's likely you need to ensure a good NICEIC electrician and 'gas safe' registered plumber is available.  Don't just take a builders assurances they're registered. Check building trades associations and body websites.

Don't Restrict Yourself To Local Builders

If you live in a small or remote area you may need to be prepared to find someone from outside your local vicinity.  Don't miss out on good people who are not local as contractors will travel for viable projects.

Get a detailed builder quotation

With a shortlist in your hand, it's time to get quotations. Make sure these are in writing and on headed paper. The quote should include all details of the labour and materials to be used to complete the job successfully, and make sure they add any VAT charges. It's important there are no hidden costs that crop up later. Ask your builder if any planning permission or building regulation approval will be required for the proposed job before any work commences. The more thorough you are regarding each detail and stage of the job from the beginning, the better. In addition to a complete breakdown of the work to be done, you'll need an idea of start and completion dates, security and safety issues, catering and toilet arrangements, and hours and days when work will be carried out.

Payment terms also need to be agreed in writing with the builder from the start, and avoid paying a cash deposit. It should not be required by a reputable builder.
