Trustmark has commissioned research that aims to discover the public’s perception of British trades people, reports HVP on July 5. The research found that 71% of participants viewed their experience of using a tradesman as a positive one. When participants were asked to describe tradesmen, adjectives such as ‘trustworthy’, ‘skilled’ and ‘professional’ were used. It was also found that 25% of respondents felt that their experience with a tradesperson was negative, and 52.5% believed that their perception of tradespeople had been affected by ‘cowboy builder’ television programmes which highlight rogue traders and criminals in the industry.
The chairman of TrustMark, Liz Male, told HVP that:
“The appalling activities of rogue traders are tarnishing the reputation of British tradesmen, and this must stop.”

A spokesperson shared their thoughts and offered advice to those looking to find plumbers or electricians:
“It is excellent news that many homeowners have had a positive experience with tradespeople. However, it is of concern that some homeowners have had a negative experience and believe that their perception has been affected by TV programmes which identify rogue traders.
