We responded to an advert regarding a builder, we contacted him & met him at the house, he told us that he had his own building company for 27 years but had now retired but did jobs in his spare time, he measured up & did seem to know his stuff, he told us that he’d price it up & let us know in a week, that was over three weeks ago, just contacted him & he replied, “can’t do it, I have 17 jobs lined up & wouldn’t be able to get round to doing yours until September next year” wanker.

Don’t waste your time looking at Checkatrade - as my neighbour found out after a plumber caused tens of thousands of £s damage to their house it is impossible to post a bad review.

Very similar to booking.com - I posted what I thought was a stinker and apparently I rated the hotel at 7.2 out of 10.

We need our roof replaced & trying to find a trader willing to even quote is difficult.

The ones who have bothered to get back to me said pretty much the same thing. 'there's more money in repairs than doing a whole roof, so we're fnot really interested in doing a full roof'
