Warning about rogue builders6 Replies
Due to recent events, its seems timely to write a note about being prudent when choosing building companies.DO NOT pay huge deposits, no matter how credible the company may seem.ALWAYS insist on written quote, including material costs and completion dates.ALWAYS check references.WALK AWAY if something seems fishy - it is not worth the risk!ASK AROUND for information about the company you are considering. Have they a good reputation? Have they ever been taken to court for bad work or theft?DO NOT BE FOOLED by registration numbers, insurance policy numbers or TVA numbers, they do not necessarily mean a great deal, and may not even be real!Remember, reputation is EVERYTHING. If a builder has unhappy customers, find a different one or, you'll be the next unhappy customer.YOU HAVE BEEN WARNED!Feel free to add your advice!
