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.
Is the tradesman qualified with skills independently verified? Will estimates be in writing with a contract for the work? Can your builder answer questions about relevant regulations? If the answer’s ‘yes’, you’re on your way to finding a tradesman providing professional services you’re looking for
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
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. Always carry out due-diligence.
