Top Building & Construction related questions

It’s highly recommended that you find a builder who is experienced and skilled enough to get the job done. Not only will this save you from all the stress and hassle of overseeing the construction project, but it will also make sure that the process is done smoothly and correctly. Hiring a legitimate builder can assure you that your property is compliant with building industry codes and is safe and stable. 

It depends on the size of your property, amount of personalisation, availability of the supplies and environment. In general, a custom-made property can be done in around nine months, while a production-built one can be completed in seven months. Make sure to talk to your Tasker about this and consider every factor that could affect the timeline of your construction project. 

Not necessarily. Your Tasker is equipped with professional tools like hammers and nails, screws, saws, screwdrivers and many others. But if you have these tools on hand and prefer to use them, you can have that arranged with your Tasker. Simply inform them beforehand, so your Tasker knows which ones to bring.

You should look for their accreditations, licences and certifications. They should have a solid experience and portfolio as a builder, with an excellent success rate. Pay attention to the team the builder has. Each member should be experienced and well-coordinated. Make sure that they use high-quality materials and have top-notch workmanship. Ultimately, they should be able to meet your needs and preferences as a client.

It would be preferable if you already have a solid idea of what your property is for and what it would look like. But if you don’t, that’s okay. Before starting your construction project, your Tasker can guide you as you create and conceptualise your plan. They can show you pegs and inspirations, and from there, you would probably be able to come up with a concrete idea for your property. 

It depends on your contract with your Tasker. But feel free to tell your Tasker anytime if you feel like you want to change, modify, alter or add something in terms of your property’s design. You and your Tasker may sit on it and discuss it before implementing the alterations. Always remember that before proceeding, the alterations should always be approved by both you and your Tasker. 

What do building services include?

Most builders are experienced in working with a range of different project types, tools, and materials, although some specialise in delivering a particular type of building service or skill. Some of the most common building services include:

New builds & renovations

Whether you’re planning a new extension or a renovation in an existing space, you’ll need a professional builder to draft up the plans and implement them. Drafting involves drawing objects and plans to scale with details to help guide the building or construction project. Some of the most popular types of renovation and installation projects include kitchen installations, bathroom renovations, and home extensions. If you need demolition, your builder can help organise and oversee the process before you start your build or renovation. Your building contractor will refer to the plans for ordering, measuring, and installing all the materials, and work with other contractors as needed to expertly build and finish the project.

Sheds & outdoor living

Want to improve your outdoor living areas or add extra storage space with a shed? Builders can help with outdoor projects like shed installation, gazebo installation, and even plunge pools. They can also help with installing patios or pergolas. Your building contractor can help with the entire process, from choosing the design and ordering the materials, to concreting and installing the foundations and structure. Finally, they can do the finishing touches, like rendering or shelving. Experienced builders will also check details like local rules and regulations to ensure your structure is compliant.

Driveways

Need your driveway concreted? Your building contractor can help lay concrete for a new driveway, seal your driveway, or repair an existing driveway surface. They’ll recommend the best driveway materials so you get the design and function you want, before ordering the materials needed. They’ll prep the surface, excavating to ensure it’s level, compacting the ground, then reinforcing the edges with timber. They’ll use a concrete mixer, wheelbarrow, shovel, and trowel to mix and spread concrete, smoothing the surface as they go. To seal the concrete, your building contractor will need to wait a couple of weeks for it to fully cure, before spraying, rolling, or brushing the sealant onto the clean surface.

Insulate drafty windows, fix doors / windows which will not close well

£255

Peckham, Greater London, SE15

13th Sep 2023

Looking for a reliable handyperson to assist with the following: 1. insulating drafty windows, especially in the lounge but also 3 bedrooms through any/all of the following methods: - adding / replacing window seals - applying window film (you would need to clean the windows prior to application) - filling any holes / gaps around the window frames with expanding foam or other appropriate solution 2. fixing doors / windows which won't close / open properly - my tenants reported the following: Windows and doors: 1. Big windows in living room are drafty/ one does not close properly 2. Back doors to garden don't shut properly. The lock works but it seems that the doors don't fit the frames anymore so can't be fully closed (this is our priority as it's a security issue as well) 3. Bedroom window at the back of the house is drafty (it would be great to still be able to open this instead of sealing shut as it gets very hot in this room in summer.) 4. Door knob on bedroom at the back of the house often comes off the latch, meaning the room is locked and needs to be opened with a card. NOTE: 1) I need a quote that covers assumed materials AND labour, but please tell me what your quote covers / does not cover so that, if the work is different (e.g. if a door mechanism needs replacing which you had not accounted for), we can adjust the price fairly to reflect that 2) you will need to coordinate with my tenants regarding access and exactly which doors / windows require attention because I will be travelling in a different time zone. - Due date: Flexible - Due date: Before Thursday, 21 September 2023

George did a fab job of fixing some drafty windows and some broken door latches and window closures. Very efficient and good about coordinating with my tenants. I wouldn't hesitate to book him again. Very happy!
