01/24/2017 How to find the Right Builder for You
Finding a reputable builder can be tricky. Use our top tips, from our database of verified Builders and Tradesmen, to ensure your renovation is high quality and runs smoothly.

When it comes to choosing the right builder, nothing is more reassuring than being able to access a builder’s project photos and previous recommendations from clients who have had building work done in the past. On our registered tradesmen and builders are checked and verified. You can be assured of piece of mind that we have vetted the builder prior to any initial contact.

You can begin your search for a reputable builder by browsing the tradesmen’s recent reviews and ratings from jobs they have completed. Ask the tradesman what experience they have in the work you need completed.
Also ask how long they have been trading for, if they have insurance and if they provide a guarantee.


Receive at least 3 quotes from builders for your job. Don’t just go with the cheapest. Ensure the tradesman breaks down all of the costs, as quotes can vary from one builder to the next. You should never compromise on quality even if one quote is substantially cheaper than the other.


Read the quotes carefully and check what is included to make sure everything you would require is covered in a written contract from start and competition dates to removal of waste, skip hire and payment schedules. Ask for confirmation as to whether planning permission is required and if they will need to apply for Building Regulations.

And Finally…

If you follow the guidelines set out above you should be on your way to having your project completed satisfactorily to the standard required.
