At Proficiency we pride our self for manage entire residential project from house extension, property renovations and conversions at a competitive price on time and on budget. Our team welcome the opportunity to get the most out of your project. Here is our take on how to choose a construction company in London.
Get your ear to the ground and start narrowing down the options by hearing what other North Londoners have felt about the builders they have selected? Word of mouth and looking around the local area at current work underway is one way. However, also speak to builders themselves and ask for testimonies.
Cowboy builders are the stuff of horror stories. A quick look at your shortlisted building contractors’ websites will give you an insight in to whether there are professional accreditations and Trade Association memberships that will give you some peace of mind. Proficiency, for example, are accredited by NICEIC meaning we undergo assessment on a regular basis, so that you can be sure you’re getting the best in terms of technical expertise and safety. Similarly, check that they have the relevant insurance.
If you’re hunting for North London Builders then you need to be sure the builders you contact are experts in their niche. If you’re looking for North London loft conversions, extensions, renovations or basement conversions, you’re going to need a specialist compared to a jack of all trades, or office builder.
Make sure you have a clear idea of what you want, but also don’t forget that many builders in London are experts. Be open to their ideas and advice based on many years of experience. They will know how to get the best value out of your build, the best finish, and have the industry network to make it happen.
When it comes to costs be sure you are comparing like for like. Some builders give far more detailed and accurate breakdowns of costs than others. Therefore, don’t simply select the cheapest. Instead take the time to assess the content of each quotation and see what is included, and what isn’t. Things you may need to look out for include clearance and skip hire, materials and supplies, fixtures and fittings, building regulations costs, and guarantees.
Once you’ve considered all of the above you should have a high level on confidence that you have chosen a builder in London who will be worthy of your trust, minimise the upheaval, and provide an excellent finish which adds value to your home.
