Recommendation for a builder

Postby Ruby » Sun Oct 02, 2011 3:29 pm

Hello

I wondered if anyone could recommend a builder who works in the Chorlton/Trafford area please? We're looking to get a bathroom 'done' and would rather go with a local recommendation if possible.

Thank you! :)

If you subscribe to Which? (and you can do a free trial for a month), you can use their 'Which Local' site.
It's excellent, as the reviews posted by Which? Subscribers are rather more reliable than other review sites.
Alternatively, try freeindex.co.uk

By the way, what is it you need done?; this might help attract suggestions.

Unfortunately, as far as I can make out, ratedpeople.com only allows customers to rate tradespeople when they've advertised their job on that site and the trades have "bought" the lead off the site, which tends to limit the playing field.

For excellent work, reasonable rates and good after-the-job-is-complete support and service I have no hesitation in recommending Wayne Edwards Contracting. 07764 784418. He's done a pile of work for us (interior plastering, loft conversion including en-suite, garden shed repair) over the last 4 years. I know there's others on here who've used him too, and been impressed.
Our brains have just one scale, and we resize our experiences to fit.

I second Wayne :-) he's done loads of work on our house during the rennovation and he knows lots of other handy people too (joiners, plumbers etc....)
I'm a happy camper

Wayne and his mate Pete have just done our ceiling. Top job minimal mess and a lot of useful info.
