Tips For Finding Local Trusted Traders
There are so many local tradesmen out there, vying for your business it can sometimes be difficult to decide which one to use.
So what are the rules for finding the right local tradesman for the job? Whether you need a builder, a plumber, roofer, decorator or an electrician, there are a number of steps to take before you hire someone.
Past Reviews, Insurance, Written Quotes, Check Trades Out
Always ask for testimonials from past customers of their business. Most good trades and service providers will have many good reviews and feedback from people who they have done building work for before locally.
Tradesman Insurances, Certifications, Qualifications, Building Trades Associations Memberships, Work Guarantees - Check Trades Out
Ask about public liability insurance to avoid any problems should you find your home gets damaged whilst building work is carried out. How long have they been trading? Ask about trades associations membership. What written guarantees do they provide? Do they provide a guarantee backed by insurance? Are they qualified to do the job? Will they provide written quotes? Always check local building control or planning portal to find out whether specialist trades are needed to carry out building work so your work is compliant with regulations.
Always, always, check trades out.
