Any building project is a partnership

by | Aug 16, 2016 | Builders

Although most people like to outsource many of their services to a third party, building projects don’t necessarily fall into this category. Whether you’re involved in a renovation or a new build, there are endless choices that you will need to make, and you should be intimately involved at every stage. For some, this is not a problem as they have been saving for years for a renovation project and can’t wait to start and to monitor the progress on a daily basis. Your participation means that you really need to select builders with whom you have a good rapport, and who will listen to your input, while providing you with professional advice at every turn.

Make certain your builders are experienced

While it might be harsh to discriminate against a building company that has recently begun, it’s always a risk working with a firm that doesn’t have an established track record. One of the best things about recommendations from friends or reading review about a company on the Internet is that you can start to develop a clear picture about the type of work and service that a company will deliver. This doesn’t mean that nothing will go wrong, but it certainly helps you have confidence that this will be a good partnership. There are endless horror stories that people have of employing builders who never arrived on time, walked off the site in the middle of the job, and left them stranded and out of pocket. Past behaviour often predicts future behaviour, so do your research thoroughly. Click here to get more information.

What will attract you to a builder?

A good building company will often have examples of previous work and a list of satisfied clients. You’ll be able to tell quite quickly by the manner in which they approach the project as to the experience and professionalism they have. They’ll start giving you advice or pointing out areas that could be problematic that will demonstrate that they know what they’re doing. A good sign is when they also give you solutions to problems rather than just listing difficulties that will mean that the price will be inflated.
