A lady I know has had a bad run of shoddy builders and each time she tries a different approach and she is now on her 4th set of builders and finally they are doing what they have been asked and to a standard that is great....

All the builders before have been recommended and have a "good" reputation where we live, but seeing the work they left is terrible...

The new builders are not from the UK but they are working long hours to put right the previous builders work right and they are not cheap but good value...

Its getting increasingly harder to find people that can actually do what you pay them to do but seems that a good reputation keeps the now lazy/bad builders enough work and they dont seem to lose that good reputation...

Bodgit&Scarper ...............Always been the same Danny. As long as there isnt some licensed system like there is for sparks and gas it will always go on.

It used to go on in those trades as well back in the day.

I love it when people do that....when @gps was following me about writing 'beast' under everything I posted until he finally exploded. That was a good day's work for me.

If a friend asks for a builder and bear in mind most my works for em. I tell em to put time in and get all trades there sens. Though some people just can't be assed with this.
One we work for his son runs most of it and he can't run a f**k**g bath. Must put stupid prices in as if we priced em our send it would be half what we get of them. Notes every ready. Some walls done twice as first fix not done or in wrong place. (Stud walls before any clever twat says owt)
He used to take piss out of lad so I told lad to ask him what his trade is in front of customer . Doesn't take piss now lol

Same around here think I know 3 at the most the rest are all just YouTube training, tbf it’s not even funny even though it kind of is ,
Question is how does someone know the difference when employing one nowadays, the sad part is all the money wasted by customers , god knows how it will get any better
