Top Tips For Finding The Right Builder

Search for a good builder

If you have recently had a family member or a friend that has recently had their new home extended or a new building project completed, you can try to get a recommendation from them. We recommend asking them about the experience they had with the builder to find out more about them. 

Get Quotes

Try to get a written confirmation of what is and is not covered. This should consist of things like site maintenance, clearance, and material suppliers, among other things. Inquire about whether or not planning permission is required, as well as whether or not they will need to file for Building Regulations approval.

You can even make the written confirmation thorough by also asking the builder to include a description of the work to be done, start/finish dates, security, and safety, the cost of the labour and materials, payment plans, working hours, and disposing of waste materials. 

Check previous work

When searching for a building company, make sure you view their previous projects and read the reviews left by their customers. This will give you further insight into the company and the services they offer. Here at Bexhill Property Maintenance, we have plenty of experience when it comes to offering building services.
