Why choose Saunders Brothers?
We know our and your legal obligations. We'll give you all the help you need to keep you firmly on the right side of all the laws and regulations.
We're conscientious. We’ve earned our reputation for Health and Safety by taking just as much care over the safety of clients, their children and friends as we do over our own staff.
A clean site is a safe site so we keep our sites clean and tidy and use safe methods of work. This also means you can live without the level of disruption some firms’ clients suffer during building works.
You can entrust your building works to us with confidence, but don’t take our word for it. Just ask and we’ll be pleased to provide references from previous clients.
Communication: we do our best to give you a realistic completion date and stick to it, but should there be any unavoidable change, you’ll be the first to know and we’ll fully explain the difficulties or delays.
We pride ourselves on the high quality of our work, but if a fault goes unnoticed, the standard snagging process at the end of the job ensures that you and your architect are both happy with the completed project.

If this is the first time you have embarked upon a building project for your home there are a few considerations that are worth thinking about and discussing with your partner and/or family.
A written contract? Do we really need one?
We do many successful jobs for happy clients without any written contract, but a contract can be very useful because:
A contract tells all parties exactly where they stand.
A contract guides both sides through alterations, additions and variations.
If the event of a dispute, a contract tells you where and how to get judgement.
The Joint Contracts Tribunal (JCT), is independent, experienced and fair. Their standard Homeowner Contracts are well written and in plain English.
A clean site is a safe site
Saunders Brothers take pride in keeping their sites as clean as possible because:
A clean site is a safe site. Rubbish left lying about is a huge cause of accidents.
Sometimes Clients suffer the accidents. We hate to put our Clients in danger.
You want mess and disruption to your home kept to a bare minimum.
Health and Safety
Do we really need to talk about health and safety? Yes. We take it very seriously because:
Construction sites can be very dangerous places but they don’t have to be.
Accidents can happen to site staff, visitors, clients or even the public outside the site. We care about everyone’s safety.
British construction sites are the safest in Europe. We want that statement to be true tomorrow as well as today, so we try to play our part on all our sites.
Safety is achieved by regulations, by responsible management, by good training and skilful staff. We think that’s why our safety record is so good.
That makes sense - so can the homeowner help with that?
Yes, and we’d be very grateful for your cooperation.
You, your children and friends and family visiting you are specially at risk because you’re not experienced in construction hazards.
In some ways a client’s home is the hardest type of site to keep safe. We can’t lock you out! We often can’t keep the working area fully fenced. Please keep everyone outside it at all times.
Please remember, the driver of construction plant has to concentrate on his work as well as moving about the site. If you keep well away, the consequences of him possibly making a mistake won’t be so serious.
Please keep well clear of plant and work when arriving home in the car.
Our staff will always try to remember your safety, but their minds have to be on their work. Please help by keeping well away.
If your home was built before 2000, it needs an asbestos survey before work starts because:
It’s illegal to work on a building that might contain asbestos without checking for it and managing it properly.
It’s best for you to know what asbestos you have in your home.
We don’t want to cause any danger to our staff or to you.
