We’ve all heard the stories about nightmare builders and the projects that go on and on without ever being completed. Or, even worse, we’ve suffered at the hands of the rogue traders whose building work is substandard and leaves you with another bill to settle just to get the job finished.
The cost to homeowners alone every year is well over a billion pounds. That’s the cost of having to bring in extra builders to sort out the mess that has been caused by the cowboys. And that figure doesn’t take into account problems or extra costs incurred by commercial landlords and property management firms.
The silly thing is that you don’t have to put up with it. There are signs that you can look for whenever you hire a builder that will help you avoid the dodgy traders. It’s a simple process that’s designed to give you as good a chance as possible to protect yourself against being ripped off. And it helps us in the building trade who pride ourselves on always doing a top-notch job for our customers.
So always look for accreditations from trade organisations. You should consider these as being a bit like the good old recommendation from a friend or family member. They mean that the builder has had their trading record, previous work, customer care, and health and safety record checked and vetted. So you know you’ll be getting quality, not cowboys.
And if you need a quality builder in Meer Green, then we’re the people to talk to. At Apple Solutions we work across the West Midlands on commercial and residential properties. Our main base is in Stechford, just south of Sutton Coldfield and Meer Green, so it’s easy for us to get to you for a chat over your project and during the day-to-day construction work.
