Identifying builders who will give you uncompromising construction quality and service
The law makes it easy for you to locate reputable, ethical builders but despite all of these mechanisms there is still an element of risk here. What if you hire a building contractor who is only profit oriented and not quality oriented? What if your building contractor does not care about complying with law? You could be left with legal problems, huge liabilities or a house that is unsafe to live in. To ensure that you get quality construction in Cape Town, you should always sign up with bespoke construction companies such as UKASA Construction. Here is how you know you have the right building contractor:
Best quality materials
Yes, keeping costs under control is very important for any construction project, but this cannot be done by compromising on the quality of materials used. For example, low grade concrete, inadequate rebar placement in concrete slabs and so on, can have devastating consequences for the building’s structural integrity. If poor quality waterproofing is applied, the building may suffer leaks in rainy weather. It is critical to sign up with a professional building contractor such as UKASA Construction who is committed to giving you the top quality construction in Cape Town. We do not take any shortcuts that could compromise the life span, resilience, or safety of the building. We employ skilled professionals to carry out regular quality checks at various levels so that our high standards are maintained.
Even with the best quality materials at your disposal, the building’s construction may fall short of your expectations when the work is done by inexperienced or poorly trained workers. It is important for the building contractor to hire workers with skill and passion for top quality construction work. In particular, this is important when you want bespoke building construction for your Cape Town property because only skilled workers can translate creative design into reality. When you work with UKASA Construction, it is our responsibility to ensure that you will have no issues with the structure that we have built. That is, whilst small settlement cracks are normal, rapidly expanding cracks that indicate a lack of structural integrity are most certainly not acceptable!
At UKASA Construction we pass on this old fable to all our employees. There lived an old construction worker who, after having worked for his employer for decades, was all set to retire. His employer asks him to build one last house. The worker, tired and jaded, builds it quickly and carelessly, only aiming to get the job done as fast as possible. The house is finished and the employer thanks the man for his years of service and hands him an envelope. Instead of money, the worker finds a key inside. It is the key to the house he has just built, hastily, without any care for quality. At UKASA Construction, our workers always build as if it were their own house they were working on.
Communicative and friendly
It is your house that is being built and that means you should expect to be involved and informed about everything that is going on. Choose a reliable building contractor who is committed to giving you regular updates about the progress and who will be transparent and honest about every aspect of the work being done. At UKASA Construction we understand that being openly communicative with our clients and maintaining a friendly relationship with them helps build a relationship based on trust. That is our goal, to show our clients that they can trust us to give the very best, just as they deserve.
