We’re under no illusion that we’re the only building contractor and joinery contractor operating in and around the Halifax area. There’s a lot of competition out there, and to keep securing projects like house extensions, loft conversions and house renovations – we have to constantly reassess our performance as a company, to ensure nothing slips from the current, high standard we hold ourselves to. Finding the right construction company to meet your individual needs is very important; making a poor choice could leave you deeply unhappy with the finished project.
That’s why in this article, the Wade Joiners & Builders team has run through a few of the key areas you should be asking questions around, when sounding out a Halifax building contractor / joinery contractor. Obviously, we want to throw our hat in the ring – but by providing objective, categorical guidelines we hope that we can show you both why certain accreditations etc. are important, and how we go above and beyond whether we’re taking on minor house renovations, or larger projects like house extensions and loft conversions.
Accreditation & Training – Perhaps the first thing to consider is a building contractor or joinery contractor’s accreditation and training. There are no required qualifications to carry out things like loft conversions, house renovations and house extensions; this makes it all the more important to vet a company, and ensure their workers are trained. Ours have full NVQ qualifications, and as a company we are a member of the leading industry trade body: the National Federation of Builders. These details ensure our clients have complete peace of mind when they’re investing a good sum of money in property improvements like house refurbishments, house extensions and loft conversions.
Specialism – Not every building contractor and joinery contractor offers the same list of services. One Halifax joinery contractor may solely specialise in first-fix jobs, while another may prefer to take on second-fix projects. On the other hand, while a building contractor may be reluctant to take on house extensions or loft conversions, preferring hard-landscaping jobs, others may thrive on them. So be sure to ask a contractor how much experience they have in your area of interest, and ask for examples of past projects to see if they’re up to your standards. As one of Halifax’s most experienced building contractors / joinery contractors (we’ve been up and running since 1968), we have experience in every area you can think of!
Reputation & References – In this day and age, it’s easier than ever to find out just how reputed a building contractor or joinery contractor is. There are online reputation aggregate websites and forums, which can be used in conjunction with traditional “word of mouth” recommendations and the references which they should provide. Should you wish to view our long-list of references, which cover clients who’ve invested in projects including house extensions, house refurbishments and loft conversions, don’t hesitate to ask! We’re proud of our fantastic reputation in Halifax and its surrounds.
Price – Another important category to compete in is pricing. After all, only a very lucky few are so flush that they can completely eschew a budget. At Wade Joiners & Builders, we believe in providing an exceptional standard of workmanship at extremely competitive prices. But don’t take our word for it… call us for a no obligation quote. We allow our Halifax clients to receive their dream property improvement, without breaking the bank – whether this improvement takes the form of house extensions, loft conversions, house refurbishments etc.
