Do you want to find a reliable builder in Leicester? When it comes to home improvements, it is important to screen your candidates carefully, but this can be a long and grating process. With Plentific, you can find an excellent Leicester builder in no time at all!

Once you post your job with Plentific, some of the best builders in Leicester will be in touch to offer bespoke quotes. Finding the most suitable option for you is easy as well: every Pro that sends you a quote will have their own profile page, where you can freely view their customer reviews, past projects and qualifications. Every job booked via Plentific will also be covered by the Plentific Guarantee.

A local builder in Leicester is likely to carry out work in and around Blaby, Charnwood, Harborough, Hinckley and Bosworth, Melton and Oadby and Wigston.

When looking for a good Leicester builder, there are three important things to remember. First of all, you should not estimate your costs based on national averages. Tradesmen across the UK charge vastly different rates, and so the kind of quote you could expect in Leicester is unlikely to match what you would expect to pay in, say, London. To get a good idea of the average cost to hire a builder in Leicester, collect quotes from at least three different qualified candidates. This should also make it easier for you to spot unreasonable quotes.

The second thing to remember is that a certain candidate may not service all of Leicester. To save money, tradesmen will usually only take work within a certain distance of where they are based. A builder from Queniborough may not take on jobs in Cosby, or a candidate in Leicester might not service outer areas like Birstall or Wingston, and so on. Do not be afraid to ask around for a local recommendation: your neighbours might even know someone!

Finally, you should always screen your builder. ‘Builders’ can take on a huge variety of tasks, ranging from garden wall construction to full basement conversions. However, becoming a ‘builder’ does not require specific qualifications, which means you will need to check that your candidates have the skills and experience necessary for the job. Usually, a builder will have learned on-the-job or completed an apprenticeship, company training programme or industry course. At the very least they should have several years of experience! You should also check their past projects to make sure that they are familiar with the kind of work that your job requires.

Before making your final hire, make sure that your builder is properly covered. This should include public liability insurance, in case of any accidental damage or injuries and a warranty for their work.
