One of the most important decision you are likely to make when undertaking a building project of any size is that of employing the services of a builder or contractor. These decisions can be narrow down by making the right enquiries and only inviting appropriate builders or contractors to quote in the first place.
Before making the all-important decision of awarding the contract to a specific builder, it would not be unreasonable to ask to see work on which they are currently engaged. Seeing at first hand how they treat the client’s property and how they work will give you an idea of what to expect if you do decide to employ them.
Some tell-tale signs of bad building practice and irresponsible behaviours would be:
- Untidy site
- materials poorly stacked and unprotected
- lack of signs generally
- loud radios
- poor site facilities
- workers not wearing Personal Protective Equipment
- poor standards of work
- signs of burning material on-site
- inadequate security, e.g. no fencing (if appropriate).
