Opening up your home to have building work done can be a hugely stressful experience. What makes it much worse is when you feel you don’t have total control over the building work that’s being carried out and that you’re paying for. The construction work is going on, but what’s emerging isn’t what you asked for or thought you’d be getting.
That’s the horror scenario, when you realise half-way through that you’re getting a dreadful service and you’ll have to pay extra to get things sorted out once the rogue builders have ridden off into the sunset with a load of your cash.
And it’s a scenario that should never emerge as you’re protected by statutory rights as a consumer. When you hire a builder they are required by law to conduct themselves with reasonable care and skill in their work for you, within a reasonable timeframe and at a reasonable cost to you. There’s no excuse for them not to provide a decent service.
Sadly, we’re all too familiar with the work of rogue builders who concentrate on making a quick buck for themselves rather than taking care and attention. At Apple Solutions we’re a building and refurbishment firm who get called in to deal with the aftermath of lots of bad jobs.
We’ve even featured on TV on the show ‘Cowboy Builders’ on Channel 5 sorting out the mess left by builders who shouldn’t be allowed anywhere near the general public. We know the huge costs incurred when the cowboys come to town and the disruption caused to ordinary working people.
We’re based in Stechford just east of the centre of Birmingham, but manage projects all over the West Midlands. Selly Oak is right on our patch, so if you’re based there in or in nearby Harborne or Stirchley and need a quality builder give us a shout. We’re easily contacted via email or online contact form – or even the time-honoured phone call!
We’ve had plenty of experience working on residential and commercial jobs, in homes, offices and business premises. We know Selly Oak is popular with student houses, so if you’re a landlord we can handle loft and garage conversions if you’re looking to maximise the amount of space available before renting out the house.
How can you be sure of the quality of our service? Well, we’ve been checked out and inspected by several leading trade associations and hold quality marks including TrustMark, Registered FairTrades, CSCS, and the UK Register of Pre-Qualified Construction Services. We’re also members of Birmingham Chamber of Commerce and the Federation of Master Builders.
