If you hire a builder in Lancashire you have a one in 10 chance of being stung by a cowboy builder according to a new survey.


A poll by the Federation of Master Builders, Master Builder of the Year Awards, found that 10% of people had been ripped off by a dodgy builder.


The survey also revealed that 49% of the counties home owners were not happy with recent work done on their homes and 43% wished they had done compre­hen­sive checks on their builder before starting work.


Architect George Clarke, presenter of Channel 4’s restoration man said “getting in the builders can be a nightmare, particularly if they prove to be unpro­fes­sional or un-cooperative.­  The key to choosing the right builder is to check them out thoroughly, set out clear ground rules and then keep up good commu­nica­tion with your builder throughout  the project.


Who would have a builder doing work in their home without checking them out first. A good builder is usually found by recom­men­dation from somebody else who has had work done by them and given a good reference says Greengates Builders Merchants Accrington, Lancashire.
