Price and value in a builder: what is the difference?

False economies

When you are looking for a building firm to employ for your extension, new build or renovations work on your home or commercial property, do you base your choice on cost, or are you looking for a company that offers you total reliability, has established an enviable long term reputation and operates to the highest possible standards of workmanship? Price is, of course, important but we all know that when all things are considered you really only get what you are prepared to pay for.

Sadly, in many respects we have become a cost cutting society and this has been clearly demonstrated in the building and construction industry where price cutting has become rife. It is no wonder that, in some quarters, countless examples of shoddy workmanship have reflected badly on the industry as a whole. A prime concern is builders that have failed to complete what they have already been paid. You probably have heard the horror stories. Plenty concern builders that have been quick to collect their money up-front and have either then disappeared without trace. On other occasions, when they have turned up, customers have been left in the lurch by a builder not completing the work or by doing it so badly that customers have been forced to spend a fortune having the damage repaired. We are not trying to frighten you – but merely pointing out that we regularly hear from people who call to ask whether we can complete or put right jobs that another builder has bodged up.

At Bromley & Gaines we have no intention of misleading you or by hiding anything from you. Our policy has always been based on total honesty and impeccable ethics. This means agreeing a price in advance that is not just right for the job – but a price that is based on using only top-notch tradesmen at every stage of the undertaking – and materials that will last because they are of the best quality.

When you discuss your build project with Bromley & Gaines you will find that we hold nothing back. After all, it is in everyone’s interests to be forthright and upfront even if this means that the quotation we offer you is higher – sometimes considerably so – than other building contractors you may have considered.
