Norwich, London (PRWEB) August 27, 2014
Home improvement is the top priority of many households these days. After buying the home everyone wishes to have, the next step is to make sure that the home is well taken care of by having it remodeled each year to come at par with the latest housing trends or at least have some part of the house repaired and rebuilt for it to at least retain its value over the years.
In London in particular, as the economy blooms, the home improvement industry also blossoms. And what can these lead to- a great demand of hundreds of the best skilled workers and London Tradesmen in the land. Since there are a lot of tradesmen available to share their craft, it is always best to consider a few pointers on how to choose a reliable tradesman. Here are a few factors to consider which may help in finding a perfect tradesman:
1 – Mind the Quote: It is always important to find the correct and affordable quote when having home improvement. Take note that in requesting for a quote, you must be specific, detailed and clear. Also make sure that you get not only one quotation but at least three for you to have something to compare. The quote must also include the dates when the work will be started and finished. It must also state an agreed payment term.
2 – Do some Research: If possible, seek a few references and check on the tradesman’s previous works. Visit previous jobs done so you would be able to make a comparison on how the job was done based on your standards. Search for their office address which should be a physical address and not just a PO Box. A legitimate firm should be able to provide their customers with an established physical location and a landline.
3 – Pay as it Progresses: If possible, communicate with your tradesman that you will only pay for work that has been done and not through advance payments. However, when there will be times when materials are need to be bought in advance, it’s just realistic for the trader to ask for payment of a fair percentage of the material costs as the job progresses.
4 –Use a Contract: Always use a written contract because it offers the homeowners a written protection just in case anything goes wrong. You must also agree on any stage and final payments before the work start. It is also recommended to set a penalty cost just in case the work was not done on the date promised as written in the contract.
