Specialist companies usually have well a well established team of tradesmen that can handle a job from beginning to end, and at the very least a singular ‘specialist’ will have trusted tradesmen they can recommend to you. A specialist company may employ an architect; depending on your job these services may not be necessary. If your job is relatively small or simple you should not need an architect’s involvement.

An advantage of hiring a specialist is the advice they can give regarding designs. They should have a website with pictures of their previous completely projects for you to look over. Additionally they should be able to give you advice based on your budget on topics like decoration and choosing building materials. Remember that certain options can be cheap in the short term but can save a lot in the long run. As an example, wooden conservatories are cheaper but need to be regularly treated - you will not have the same problem with a brick conservatory. Getting a well established local tradesmen may also allow you take advantage of their connections. They may be able to source materials for you locally for a lower price.

As well as checking their previously completed jobs it is important to ask your specialist about their qualifications. They may have completed an apprenticeship scheme or some kind of industry qualification. Regardless of their background, a great sign of their expertise will be if they are a part of a national tradesmans’ organisation such as the Guild of Master Craftsmen. Such groups enforce high standards and codes of conduct on their members. A professional should also be able to readily provide reviews and references from previous customers.

Before making your final hire it is important that you ask your tradesmen about their insurance policies. A specialist that does design or surveying work for your job will need to have public liability insurance in the event that they fail to highlight potential issues which end up costing you money. All tradesmen on your site should also be covered against accidental damage and liabilities.

Very good job done on repainting my house exterior. The painters were polite professional and did everything to spec.

Beyhan of Byko totally understood my vision for the project. He gave good advice when I needed it and he followed my design completely. His guys worked really hard and with great skill. They have made a superb job of the renovation, and I would have no hesitation in recommending them to others. I also like how it was a fixed price for labour and I supplied the materials. That way there were no surprises and I completed under budget. Graham

Refurbished my entire property last month, Evolve were efficient, cost effective and i even had my own designated project manager who dealt with everything from start to finish. My job requires frequent travel abroad and we had no problems communicating with the project manager whilst the works took place and i was away for an extended period. Nadeem would call on skype and update me on how the project was progressing. very happy with them.

I hired A1HOME4U to refit my old Bathroom and replace the old conservatory at the back with a new rear extension for the new kitchen. I was very pleased that they organised all the required planning permission and building control applications and I didn't have to do any of the paper work. They also replaced all the windows and some doors. I was very impressed with their efficiency and professional attitude. The job was finished within the quoted budget and time scale. That was achieved by organization and hard work. The builders were very tidy and always adhered to the daily cleaning routine after finishing work. I'm very happy with the high quality of work and would recommend A1HOME4U to all my friends and relatives and wish them all the success they deserve.
