Trusted Contractor checklist:
Check that a contractor has public liability insurance, so that if any accidents occur as a result for their work you can claim against them. Reputable firms will have £5m.
A reputable firm will always offer a free guarantee to give you the peace of mind that you should expect as this is not a cheap process..
Don’t just take a company’s word for how great they are, always ask for any testimonials they may have. Obviously, most contractors will only let you have the positive ones so asking friends and family for recommendations is also a good idea.
Always insist that quotes are given in writing, as verbal quotes are completely worthless. Trustworthy contractors are unlikely to give you a written quote there and then so ask them to email or post the quote to you.
Check their previous work to get an idea of the standard of craftsmanship and to see if they have completed similar projects before so that you know what to expect.
Credible companies will be members of trade associations such as the Marshalls Approved Contractor scheme and have the necessary qualifications from recognisable bodies like City & Guilds. Before becoming approved, their quality of work will be scrutinised by experts who will check that their work complies with the high standards required. Membership can be checked by calling the relevant association.
