Embarking on a home improvement project can be daunting, especially if it will require some form of building or construction work. Your home will be disrupted for some time and if the company you choose doesn’t work efficiently, then the disruption can be far more significant than you had expected.
Unfortunately, if you find yourself in the hands of a cowboy builder, there can be considerably worse consequences than disruption. There are countless stories of homes left in chaos at the hands of rogue traders and if you want your project completed on time and to a high standard, it’s essential that you do what you can to a avoid cowboys:
1. Check accreditations
If you’re ever unsure about a company, check their accreditations. Accreditations are established to check the standard of a company’s work and their practices but be sure to research what an accreditation actually means.
There are numerous accreditations that a company may have but can refer to their environmental policies or health and safety checks, not just the quality of their work.
Seeing what previous customers have to say about a company is one of the best ways to determine their credibility. A company can brag about their service themselves but you’ll get a better idea of what a company is ACTUALLY like through customer reviews.
3. Don’t be afraid to ask questions
A reputable company will always be willing to listen to your questions and offer valuable and honest answers in response. If the company or person you’re speaking to avoids the questions or gives answers that you know to be false you should be suspicious.
