It has been reported in the trade press that Brits have spent £2.6 billion fixing bad plumbing work in the UK. A survey of 2000 consumers revealed that 69% admitted that they chose their plumbing contractor on price alone with no regard to whether he belonged to any particular registered contractors scheme.

That is an awful lot of money spent on putting work right and an awful lot of aggravation and misery too.

Please, please, please don’t let price be your only decision making criteria.

Recommendation is still the best way of finding a reputable trades person.
