Following up on Part 1, here are 4 more mistakes you can avoid when it comes to hiring builders in Chelmsford…
4. Not questioning the jargon you don’t understand
An astute homeowner questions everything about their building project, including the jargon featured in quotes, which they don’t understand. However, because you’re not a building ‘expert’ it’s easy to let things go unquestioned because you’re putting your trust in your chosen builder.
A quote from Grant Builders will contain costs for supply and fit or installation only (where the customer is providing the materials). Where we are supplying the materials, we will always quote for a standard item and then the customer can make any changes to specifications that they desire.
For example, tiles at £35 per square metre may be included in the cost, but a more expensive tile will obviously increase the cost on the quote. We try to provide as much detail as possible in our quotes, but there will always be specification details that will need to be added once you – the customer – has made key decisions.
