Why use a Master Builder

The FMB's strict membership criteria and dispute service gives consumers confidence when looking to use a builder.

Before you start

Most building projects fall into four main categories, some of which will require planning permission and/or a Party Wall Agreement.

Choosing a builder

The building firm you choose will be spending several weeks, or even months, working in your home. You need to be confident both in their ability to do the work, and that you will have a good working relationship with them.

Working with your builder

Once you have chosen a builder, put your agreement in writing, so both parties have a clear understanding of the scope and cost of the work.
