Trusted Plasterer Preston
This is how to avoid being ripped off by rogue traders…
So, how do you find a plasterer you can trust?
If a plasterer is free to start work immediately, alarm bells should ring. Demand for quality plastering work is incredibly high at the moment so approaching plastering companies in plenty of time is recommended.
4 golden rules to avoid headaches:
1. Get at least three quotes with a fixed price, and clarify the position on VAT.
2. Use a written contract to get an agreement on cost, as well as issues such as timescale, materials and clearing up.
3. Make sure the trades person has insurance.
4. Agree a payment schedule, and release payments based on targets for specific deadlines being met. Never pay in full upfront.
Don’t ever sign up a person who knocks on your door and points out a small problem as reputable tradesmen will not cold call. Also hiring someone who says they can start work straight away is a warning sign, although not always. Make sure you know the reasons why they can start straight away if they offer. Also tread carefully if a quote seems too low.
