If you are undertaking some improvement works to you home, there a few steps you should follow in order to save yourself time, money and heartache. Preparation and planning are key. Before you make any changes to your home you should first check if you need to get any permission or approval. This could be from local authorities, either building regulations, conservation or listed building approval or planning permission, or even approval from a landlord or leaseholder. You may also wish to hire a surveyor or architect at this stage. The next step is to find the right builder or contractor, a safe way to find a reliable contractor is to ask friends, family and colleagues for recommendations. Be sure to check references of any tradesmen you are thinking of employing and ask to see recent examples of similar work they’ve done. If you are having any gas or electrical work done be sure to check they are approved and registered with the appropriate bodies. Make sure you that you meet with contractors in person before you hire them and make sure you get all information you need from them and give them a clear and detailed description of exactly what work your want done, and make sure they give you a transparent quote. Make sure you get a quote and not an estimate – as a quote is a fixed price which is agreed upon whilst an estimate is just a guess and you could end up being charged more.
You can judge for yourself how easily you can communicate with them and this will give you a good indication of how well you will be able to work together. Make sure you write down the full job details agreed with them, and where possible you should make a written contract before they get to work.
