How To Handle The Completion Of Work

At completion, inspect the work with your builder and compile a list in a duplicate book of any points that you are not satisfied with. Agree a date for completion, insert this into your list and give the top copy to the builder. You could and even hold back a reasonable sum pending completion.

The completion should include removal of all materials/rubbish builders often leave some behind!

Where required, ask for final certificates of inspection from the building inspector.

Dealing With Disputes

If a dispute does arise do not become involved in any heated exchange; stay calm or walk away. Put your concerns in writing and seek professional advice if necessary. A polite letter of concern to the managing director/proprietor may be the best line if the matter cannot be resolved at the first line of contact. Alternatively, contact the builder's trade association if the matter does not appear immediately or soon after completion.

Please notify and involve us in any matter you are not happy with.

Scheduling The Works

The amount of work that a tradesman may produce in one day may not be as much as you might feel you are able to achieve, the tradesman is at work and not motivated in the same way as you would be. Inspect the completed work on a daily basis, but do not appear to be checking everything in minute detail as this may seem like you are looking for problems. Like wise If you are happy with the amount of work completed each day say so. The tradesmen are normal people with feelings! Work should appear neat, straight and be done correctly the first time without the need for filler and making good. The site and tools should be clean and tidy. A stack of materials deteriorating in the mud or being left outside overnight is a bad sign.
