Need help with your home improvement?
Most home renovation and improvement projects need help from a professional tradesperson. Finding the right person for the job can be tricky. You want someone who is reliable and has the right skills, these tips from Rated People can help:
- Carry out checks on a tradesperson you’re looking to hire
- Check out online review sites as well as word of mouth and directories, but the checks shouldn’t stop there. For instance, ask for proof of any certifications that the tradesman claim to have and always read what previous customers have to say
- Don’t just pay attention to positive reviews - read any negative feedback too. This will give you a fuller picture of the tradesperson you’re considering
- For added financial protection, avoid paying in cash and pay by credit or debit card wherever possible
