Choosing A Builder
Your choice of builder makes all the difference in successfully making your ideas a reality.
A personal recommendation is always a good way to find a builder but reputable trade bodies such as the Federation of Master Builders (FMB) can also help. Members of the FMB have all been vetted and inspected. www.fmb.org.uk
Have you seen some work carried out locally that you like? Look out for the builder’s van or signboard.
Don’t choose a contractor purely based on price. Trust and professionalism are priceless!
If you’ve narrowed down your choice, get references from the builders and follow up on them. Their best advert is a happy client.
Once you have selected your builder, get a contract. FMB registered builders have access to standard, clearly explained contracts that protect both parties.
