Bob was very prompt, gave me a number of options on solving my roofing issues, then gave me a competitive quote which I accepted as I wanted the job doing whilst the weather permitted it. He then did a nice neat job too.

Tips For Finding Local Trusted Traders

There are so many local tradesmen out there, vying for your business that it can sometimes be difficult to decide which one to use.

With so much information, it’s no longer a case of flicking through the yellow pages and jotting down the contact details of locals in your area. Now we have the internet and new technologies that can give you lists of tradesmen at the flick of a switch or the press of a button.

But just because there’s so much information available, it doesn’t necessarily mean you should pick the first person you come across. If you’re going to have building work done to your property, it goes without saying that you want a decent price, good workmanship and a reliable, trustworthy worker.

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 you should take before you hire someone.

First of all, use a good directory of local tradesmen. It’s worth asking for recommendations to find someone who’s reliable. If you can go and see the work they’ve done for yourself, so much the better.

When you’ve come up with a list of three or four people who are local to your area, give them the details of the work you want doing and get them to quote a price for the whole job. That way, you can budget effectively and get competitive rates.

Any tradesman worth his salt will accept payment in stages. You should never part with large sums of cash up front. If a service provider is asking for this, you’d be well advised to run in the opposite direction! When choosing a someone, look for those with membership to a trade association - and be sure to check out exactly what this means. Some trade associations will hand out membership without requiring minimum standards of workmanship. The good ones set standards for members.

Make sure that you ask plenty of questions. This way there’s less likelihood of anything going wrong after you’ve had your work carried out. The types of questions you’ll need answers to are:

  • Are they qualified and if so, have their skills been independently verified?
  • Will your estimate be in writing with a contract for the work?
  • Can your builder answer questions about building regulations?

If the answer’s ‘yes’, then you’re well on your way to finding a tradesman that will give you the professional service you’re looking for.

Good Feedback From Customers - Past Reviews

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.

Check them out individually. Don't just rush into accepting the first quote for your work that you receive from the tradesperson you like the most.

Tradesman Insurances, Certifications, Qualifications, Building Trades Associations Memberships, Work Guarantees - Check Trades Out

You will need to ask about public liability insurance in place to avoid any problems should you find that your home gets damaged whilst building work is carried out. What trades associations are they members of? What guarantees do they provide. Do they provide a guarantee that is backed by insurance if the company goes bust? Always check with your local building control or planning portal to ensure you do not need specialist trades to carry out building work and your work is compliant with regulations.

Again, always, always, check trades out.

Don't Restrict Yourself To Local Tradespeople

Nowadays a good tradesman will travel far and wide to obtain worthwhile work and some organisations provide a UK nationwide service, or have sub-contractors across the UK. Find out the situation with regards to this type of arrangement prior to choosing a quote.

If you live in a small or remote area you may need to be prepared to find a tradesman from outside your local area. The same caution should always apply, in that you should always ensure that you carry out your own checks.
