Many people embarking on a home renovation or extension project may be put off by the cost and time required for much of the foundational, ‘behind-the-scenes’ work that must go ahead. However, people in this situation should not simply opt for cheaper, quicker work. The initial stages of construction are by far the most important, and cutting corners at this crucial time could lead to faults and damage in your home further down the line. When it comes to construction work in your home, it pays to find a contractor that has a reputation for quality and reliability, and will go above-and-beyond to keep the highest possible standards in their work, even if it is part of the construction that the owner/client will never see.
“Behind the Scenes”
The temptation when planning a project and hiring your contractor may be to look for the cheapest option available or the company that promises the fastest turnaround. Having a dream design in mind for your conversion, renovation or extension project is all very well, but getting to that stage of the project first involves essential groundwork that should not be rushed or botched; such as the foundations, heating, electrics, plumbing and insulation.
This ‘behind-the-scenes’ work is the most important part of any project, and you should always hire the contractor that has the best reputation for quality and skilled craftsmanship in this area. The important thing to remember is that you can always change or adapt an interior space after the project is finished, but repairing faulty internal work (such as plumbing, insulation or wiring) is expensive, disruptive and time consuming. Paying a little more for a skilled and reliable contractor at the early stages will in fact save you money in the long run.
