Whether you’re considering building your own house, extending your existing home, or converting a loft or garage, you need to ensure you are choosing a reliable builder. Any work must be carried out by an experienced and preferably certified building company. We strongly advise employing a vetted builder if you considering doing any significant repairs or building work to your home. Below are just some of the reasons to choose a Master Tradesmen certified builder.
1. Professionally Vetted Builders
To guarantee that Master Tradesmen members fulfil the high standards required of a Master Builder organisation, they go through a strict vetting process. Each member has had references independently checked before joining.
The procedure also includes ensuring their public liability insurance is up to date and held on file and asking for customer feedback at the end of the build.
2. Personalised service
The Association of Master Tradesmen have a team of friendly account managers who are on hand to assist you throughout the process. Once you choose a Master Tradesmen certified builder, you will be allocated an account manager who is dedicated to you and is able to answer any questions you have before, during and after the build and is there to step in should anything go wrong.
3. Building Advice
Whether you use one of our builders or not, the Association of Master Tradesmen can offer free advice on your building process. A free Building Guide includes tips on choosing a builder, questions to ask references and a checklist of things to look for in a quotation. Our dedicated account managers can also offer advice on setting up stage payment facilities.
4. Contract Templates
A written contract may give peace of mind to you and your approved builder by lowering the possibility of misunderstanding or dispute throughout the construction process. The Association of Master Tradesmen offers free contract templates that we strongly recommend you complete and sign with your chosen builder before any construction begins to avoid any surprises or disagreements.
5. Competitive Quotes
It is always recommended to get at least four comparable written quotes from builders before agreeing to work with a builder. Quotes can vary dramatically in price so it’s worth shopping around and getting prices from more than one contractor. Waiting for quotes can be very time consuming but the Association of Master Tradesmen can help with this task and work closely with the builders to ensure they deliver a fixed quote within the timeframe you require.
The service is free and comes with no obligation. Our website provides a quick and easy form to post your job so you can find local, approved builders near you or you can call us on 0208 817 5246 (24/7).
