If you are looking for a building company, you will be looking for reliability and trustworthiness, two important factors in a business being able to deliver what they say they can. However, with so many companies marketing themselves as being the reliable building company in Glasgow to turn to, how do you find the right one for you?
#1 Accreditations and schemes
Some building companies will become members of various professional bodies and organisations. In order to do this, a reliable building company in Glasgow will need to provide evidence they not only meet certain criteria, but continue to do so throughout every part of their business.
A badge on a website does not guarantee success, but it shows you that this building company takes its business very seriously, always attempting to give the best in terms of reliability etc. but also to push forward standards within the professional itself.
#2 Reviews and references
There is nothing like the honest opinion of previous customers to find out exactly what it is that a reliable building company in Glasgow does well (or not!).
Reviews on their own website will, by necessity, be positive ones but don’t dismiss these; are people saying something in common, such as tidiness, punctuality etc.? Some firms are members of independent review sites which may give more of a balanced review of the company and of course, trusting the valued opinion of friends, family and neighbours is another way of gauging the reliability of a local building company.
#3 Portfolio of work
Irrespective of how big or small your project is, it is an important project in or around your home and you want to be confident that the building company in question can complete it to a high standard.
Most proactive building firms will take photos throughout a project, creating a portfolio of their work. This is a great way for potential customers to check what it is they do, and the standard they do it to.
#4 How they operate and build a relationship with you, the customer
Finally, a reliable building company in Glasgow will value their customers, and this means valuing them from the start to the end of the process.
This means being on time when they say they will be at an appointment etc., they clear up when they have finished and so on.
