In my opinion, Checkatrade, My builder etc gives the public confidence in using these sites. Recently there was a scandal where anyone can pay and be eligible for doing work they have never done ! Its all about money. You pay for leads. I would also like to say some people are genuine but be careful !!!!! I would never sign up for one of these. Tiler for tiling, plumber for plumbing as said many times before on here.

Thats the safest option, sorry
I appreciate your honesty. Can anyone give me a ballpark cost for the re-tiling alone? It would the entire window wall, plus the concealed cistern, and boxed in soil pipe (it come's up from the boxed in cistern). We'd get a plumber to deal with the bathroom issues. Thanks for you help.

I would get the plumbing checked aswell, who knows what disasters have been boxed in/hidden and where did he put the spare grout and water sludge?

Irrespective of what their advertising says, anyone can decide they are a tradesman and sign up to these companies, and although I'm sure there are some happy customers, they are the source of loads of terrible work and workers.

Why would a good tradesman spend money getting work?
I'm always busy, I don't even advertise!
