When it comes to building work, whether it is a new project or renovation work, the most common question asked is “when will the work be finished?”. Most people aren’t interested in the work that is undertaken throughout the process, they just want to see the finished project. However, to ensure that the work is carried out in the right manner and the project is on time, there needs to be a plan in place.
Builders need information and they need plans to work to, which is why reliable roof surveys are essential. The roof is a crucial component of any property and whether it is a new build project, or an existing roof is being repaired, a lot of jobs are dependent on the roof being finished to an expected standard. At H.I.C.H LTD, we know the importance of the roof in the overall project and we also know the importance of dependable information when it comes to working on a roof. Our roof surveys deliver builders with the information they need to work in an effective manner and to ensure that they meet the needs and expectations of their customers and clients.
There is a need to create a timeline for work
One of the most important aspects of any construction project is constructing a timeline. There is normally an order in which work must be carried out, and a roof survey can help with this. Knowing the current condition of the roof, what improvements (if any) need to be carried out and having a plan of how best to make these changes is a fundamental issue for builders. A reliable roof survey provides all this information, ensuring a project can be managed in an effective manner.
Parts need to be ordered for specific jobs at specific times
A useful component of roof surveys comes with being able to order parts or materials as and when they are required. It is important to manage the budget of a project and cash flow is an essential part of this. It doesn’t make much sense to have a lot of materials sitting around in storage before it is needed but equally, no one wants to be waiting on materials to complete a part of a job.
Therefore, an action plan should detail when each part of the process will be completed, which makes it easier to plan for when materials are needed. This minimises the need for storage solutions while ensuring that everything required for work is available.
Additional labour or equipment may be required at times
The same argument can be made for additional staff or equipment. Some tasks may require a building firm to bring in external help, so knowing when this part of the project will take place ensures that this can be planned for in a more effective manner.
It is helpful to provide clients with a timeline for a project
Most builders understand that clients are demanding and want as much information about the project as possible. Having as much information about the work as possible ensures builders can provide their clients with details and information in advance, allowing the client to make plans and feel more confident about the work.
The confidence and peace of mind that comes with reliable roof surveys make a massive difference and this is what H.I.C.H LTD aims to deliver.
