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.
