Looking for a Builder Serving Central Scotland
When you’re looking for a building company to take on work there are a few things that you need to look for. There can be some bad builders around which ruin the reputation for the good people. So when looking for a builder there are a few things that will prove they are good enough.
Are they reliable?
The best way to find this out is to look at reviews from their past customers, ideally, you should look at a customer that carried out a similar project to the one that you're looking to undertake.
Proof of experience and similar past work
Any decent builder should be able to show you a portfolio of past work. This will put your mind at ease seeing the standard of work they produce and whether you should hire them or not.
They should give you a competitive price
It's not about choosing the cheapest builder it's about choosing the best. You should get prices from at least 3 different builders in your area and see where they all benchmark. You may find it useful to look online and see what others paid for similar projects, but bear in mind that prices could be different in other areas of the country.
They shouldn’t push you into hiring them
Builders understand that you will be asking other builders for quotes. You shouldn’t hire anyone that pushes you into saying yes to hitting them. Never say yes to a builder straight away, take your time to compare and then make the decision after you have looked at your options properly.
Do they have the capacity to take on your job and achieve it in your timeframe?
Before officially hiring a builder you should make sure that they can carry out your project within your chosen timeframe and when you want it doing. Builders often have so many jobs on they might start your project and then realise they need to do something else before they carry on with yours. Not only will this be annoying for you, but it could be costly.
They're willing to sign a contract
Contracts are the best way for both parties to understand each other. It will state working hours, money and everything else between and it is there to protect everyone. If anything was to happen it’s a lot easier to see who’s right and wrong as it will be stated in the contract. Never start a project without one and never hire a builder that decides they don’t need one.
