Tips For Finding Local Trusted Traders

With many local tradesmen out there it can be difficult to decide which to use.

Whether you need a builder for major building work, a plumber for leaks, roofing contractor to mend a roof, decorator to decorate your home or an electrician to rewire, there are steps to take before you hire.

Compare First

Come up with a list of three or four shortlisted local people

Give them details of work you want doing to get quotes for the whole job to budget effectively and get competitive rates

Never part with large sums of cash up front.

Ask questions

Is the tradesman qualified with skills independently verified?

Will the tradesman give estimates in writing with a contract for the work?

Can your builder answer questions about relevant building regulations?

If the answer’s ‘yes’, you’re on your way to finding a tradesman providing professional services you’re looking for

Good Feedback & Past Reviews

Ask for testimonials from past customers

Check reviews

Check trades out

Don't rush into accepting the first quote received from the tradesperson you like most

Check Insurances, Certifications, Qualifications, Associations, Guarantees

Ask whether a tradesperson has public liability insurance

What associations are they members of?

What guarantees are provided?

Are guarantees backed by insurance?

Always check with local building control or planning portal to ensure regulation compliance

Check trades out.

Always carry out due-diligence

Not Just Locals

A good tradesman will travel for worthwhile work. Some companies provide UK nationwide services

In remote places be prepared to find a tradesman outside your local area
