your quotation journey.

VISIT TO DISCUSS PROJECT

We will spend time discussing your specifications and wishes, ask
questions and take photographs in order to gain as much information as
possible.

MEETING WITH MATTHEW & CHOSEN ARCHITECT

Should you require planning permission or building regulation drawings, Aubrey Homes can instruct one of our trusted architects, who will take your instructions, complete and submit all paperwork on your behalf.

MEETING ON SITE WITH SPECIALIST TRADES

We will return with our specialist trades (plumbers, electricians, groundworkers…) to ensure all your requirements are fully understood and met. This is part of our commitment to your project and helps us keep the build within budget.

QUOTATION PERIOD

This is where we differ from most builders. At Aubrey Homes, we put together a comprehensive and transparent breakdown of your costs together with a realistic time frame. This detailed process will take two to three weeks.

VISIT TO DISCUSS QUOTATION

We do not email our quotes to clients. We prefer to meet you face to face so we can fully explain how we have achieved our figures and answer any questions you may have.

QUESTIONS AND ANSWERS PERIOD

We are always available to answer any questions you may have and are willing to re-visit you to clarify details or make any changes you require. We can also offer you value engineering if your initial requirements have exceeded your
budget.

DECISION TIME

We strongly recommend you take the time to ensure that you compare quotations on a like-for-like basis. DO ensure that each quote includes everything that you require and remember to ask the three crucial questions below

APPOINTMENT AND CONTRACT

We will meet to finalise your start date, the payment criteria and to sign the
project contracts.

three crucial questions.

What you really should ask each building contractor…
and the answers you need to know.

Let’s face it, every industry has its good and bad companies. When you are carrying out your initial research to decide on the right building company for your project, follow our top tips to save money, time and a whole lot of stress:

1. Question the Quotation

Ensure your quotation is detailed, upfront and honest in terms of overall cost. Some building service providers will quote an unrealistically low price to win the work and add additional costs during the project.

The quotation should have a full cost breakdown detailing items such as labour costs and materials and should cover all the details of the project you require.

2. Time Matters

You need to know precisely how long the project will take to completion so you can plan for the disruption and manage a sometimes dusty environment. Perhaps you will even have to organise accommodation elsewhere.

You need to be able to plan your life around the building work and that can only happen if you are kept well informed and feel comfortable raising questions with your chosen contractor.

3. Can they do it?

This is the most critical aspect of your decision-making.

Can the company who have quoted actually complete the project to the standard you require?

Ask for examples and case studies of similar projects where they have successfully solved problems for their clients. Do they have the project management skills and experience to oversee the technical experts; the surveyors, architects, electricians, plasterers, decorators, kitchen fitters, roofers and plumbers? Get vital clues about quality and value for money by researching the testimonials and reviews received by the contractor.

Are these clearly visible on the website? Do they look genuine? Are they written by real clients?
