Do you get cold feet when hiring tradesmen
Recent studies state that 87 per cent of UK homeowners fear hiring tradespeople because they aren’t confident that the job will meet there requirements.
According to the study, finding good tradespeople who they know for certain will complete work to a high standard, is a concern for 59% of homeowners. Some of the reasons is due to price or the quality of the end product.
Craig Smith, Director Copperfield Windows, said: “This study shows that choosing the right tradespeople is a really hard decision and there are lots of pitfalls to negotiate.
“Window and door replacement companies don’t always enjoy the best reputation, so finding one can be tricky.
“We pride ourselves on the service that we offer and if you are local, we’d always ask that you give us a try but it also pays to shop around.
“We’d encourage anyone buying new windows and doors to always get several quotes, so you can make a sensible comparison between prices and to make sure that you’re comparing like-with- like.
“It’s very easy to not understand the technical jargon, so always make time to understand what you’re buying. Good companies and sales people won’t try and close on a first appointment but will be there to advise and support you through the window and door buying process.”
The poll also found that trusting tradespeople inside their home was an issue for 33% of respondents, while 23% were concerned that companies would go bankrupt before completing the work. Of those surveyed, 19% were worried about the work not being completed on time.
“This is another key point”, said Craig, “window or door installation shouldn’t be a stressful experience. All of our fitting teams are fully checked before joining us, while we all know that we’re not just there to install windows to someone’s house, but to their home.
“We use dust sheets and we always clean up after ourselves. We believe buying new windows and doors should be a pleasant experience from start to finish.”
