When it comes to choosing a company these are the thing you must take into consider to make the process as smooth as possible:
When you plan for a loft conversion, make the decisions wisely. The most important decision that you will have to make will be who to choose for your loft conversion or extension. There are plenty of companies that provide this service. We would love if you choose us since we have a pretty good reputation. But hey! Let’s not be selfish. Even if you don’t choose us, we want you to choose only the best. These pointers might help you to make the right decision.
Step 1) ALWAYS CHECK THEIR REVIEWS
Reviews are very important. It is always good to check on experiences of people in the past before you put yourself in that situation. However, there are many websites available, the trick is to choose the legit one. Web sites such as Yell, Rated People, and TrustPilot are good sources of ratings and reviews. You may also see the review section on contractors websites. Google and Facebook reviews are also helpful, but there is no way to say that all the reviews are legitimate or not.
Step 2)CHECK THEIR ACCREDITATIONS
You will have to spend a considerable sum to make any changes or modifications to your home. It is important that you check the company you choose is accredited and a member of professional guides that are focused on delivering high levels of service. Our recommendation will be going for a builder who has a maximum success rate in his work. Also going for the ones who are mentioned in the government acknowledged sites are a good option.
Step 3) HAVE A LOOK AT THEIR PREVIOUS WORK
You might already have an idea about how you want your new loft space to look before starting the work. It is not a single man’s work so you will obviously need a supplier who understands your ideas, contributes to it and turns your dream loft into reality. Looking at the projects they have done in the past and getting some of their opinions about your ideas will give you a great scope of improvement. It might also help you to build something better than your imagination.
Step 4) MEET THEM BEFORE STARTING THE WORK
The most important step is to meet the service provider before starting the work. This will give you a better assurance about your decision of working with them. Discuss your ideas with them. Let them know your vision for your new space, ask for their input so that you can figure out whether their thought process compliments with yours.
Step 5) GET CONSULTATION FROM THEM
One of the most important part of the process is consultation. Your first consultation should always be free. Anyone asking for consultation charges could have the intention of sucking your money. When you have a consultation session, you not only get to know so much more about the details and necessities of your work, but also get to know the experience and intentions of the company. If they are giving you genuine advice and focus on saving your money, then you have got the right one. If they are just pointing out things that you are not looking for and giving you an estimate out of your comfort zone, they are just trying to burn your pockets.
Here are some points to keep in mind to make the most out of your first consultation:
1.What does your fee include?
2.How long will the process take?
3.Am I able to use my own design or design company?
4.What happens to my deposit?
5.Do you deal with asbestos?
7.Can you help source the final fixtures and fittings?
Hope we covered it all for you. This will surely make the process easier for you and help you make the right decisions.
