When you are renovating your home, either for an extension, loft conversion or restoration project you need to be sure the builder you employ has the necessary experience and skillset to meet your objectives. Highly regarded Cheadle builders will have a raft of references and portfolios of previous projects, so you can check out their skills for yourself. This is especially relevant if you are carrying out a restoration project on a listed building or similar. Please see below for some tips on finding the right builders for your project:
- Ask for word of mouth recommendations from friends and family
- Find out how long they’ve been in business
- Ask where they source their materials
- Ask for evidence of past completed projects
- Meet them in person prior to any agreement
- Check online reviews
The old saying goes ‘You’re only as good as your last job’ and this is still as true today as it has always been. Experienced builders will be able to fully complete a job to the customer’s satisfaction each and every time and perhaps even more importantly, rectify any problems quickly and efficiently. Each job should come with some sort of guarantee that it will stand the test of time, again, reputable builders will always provide this and address any concerns you may have in future about the work carried out. You may find it a better option to use a local building firm rather than one from further afield as they will generally be willing to provide an enhanced level of customers service in comparison to firms from outside of the area.
