TV aerials

We have poor reception (BT Vision and freeview). We have an aerial in loft and an unattached satellite dish. We want either an external aerial or the dish hooked up for freesat. We have two rooms with aerial sockets but may want up to 3 more rooms wired and the existing ones tidied up (depending on cost). We might want the BT vision shared to other rooms (again depending on cost.) It is not a rush job but the sooner the better.

Architraves and skirting boards

I'm after a quote for some skirting board. the background is i had some damp proof tanking installed so there's about 25/30ft of skirting now missing. it needs to match the existing style as much as possible and will need to be glued on (so as not to puncture the wall and affect the tanking). the property is vacant at the moment so no problems with access.

Bathroom Installations And Refurbishments

We have a bungalow with a wetroom fitted very badly and basically want it replaced. the wetroom will have to be taken out it will need new flooring as the one installed is full of strange lumps and bumps which means the water from the shower at the moment pools behind the toilet and sink and does not drain. the pipes are hidden behind tiling and are inaccesable,and we had a leak which meant i had to smash into the tiles to fix it and the pipe work looks decidedly dodgy. the tiles on the wall are all over the place and will need replacing. the shower unit is electric and is very dodgy we would like this replaced with mixer shower unit. we would like a shower cubicle rather than a wet room

Advice On Finding A Tradesman

  1. Always try to get three quotes from tradesmen for home improvement work.
  2. Ask for written quotes from tradespeople.
  3. Ask what guarantees the tradesperson gives on their work.
  4. Get the tradesperson's address in case of query.  A quote scribbled on paper is a bad sign.
  5. Be patient and compare quotes.
  6. Try to be objective - most tradesmen will be keen to please when quoting especially in a competitive tradesperson's marketplace.
  7. Be clear on what you want quotes on.  Vague quote specifications can lead to disputes with tradesmen and misunderstandings over what was included in your quote and what wasn't.
  8. Check whether tradesmen have reviews on past work.  If they don't ask for references from past customers.

How Many Quotes Should you get?

Consumer bodies recommend comparing minimum 3 quotes for home improvement work as at least you have something to compare when making decisions.

Does My Tradesman Have To Be A Local Tradesperson?

Many good building companies travel nowadays for work. Contractors don't need to be local in order to carry out professional services. You should consider whether travelling costs have been integrated into a tradesmans quote when getting prices. Local service providers may charge less, however there are other things to consider when comparing quotes.

Obtain Written Quotes For Your Work

Always ensure quotes for home improvement are in writing, with a company address.
