Proper builders, reliably sourced

Frequently Asked Questions.


Why would I use Weaver?

If you're a design professional who has a tender and doesn’t have sufficient builders available, with the right skillset or who works in the right area

What does Weaver offer?

  1. Introduction to pre-qualified builders for individual projects matched for availability, skillset and location

  2. Help with managing the builder through the tender return process

  3. Analysing tender returns & highlighting areas for negotiation

Is the Weaver service free of charge?

Once a contract is agreed between the homeowner and a Weaver builder, the builder pays a small fee as a cost of marketing. The homeowner or designer does not pay anything.

How do you qualify Weaver builders?

We're extremely picky at Weaver. Only 1 in 10 builders make it through our industry-defining vetting process. Our vetting process reduces the following risks normally associated with a “low grade” builder:

  1. Historical bankruptcies & risky company history

  2. Insufficient construction experience

  3. Inability to manage complex construction work

  4. Poor construction quality

  5. Poor communication skills

  6. Poor administrative technical capabilities

  7. Poor time management

  8. Inability to remain on construction budget

Can I trust you?

Although we are an online service and our matching service is powered by an algorithm, Weaver is run by humans! Our founding team have over 20 years combined experience in construction project management and design with RICS and CIOB qualifications.
