It can be a difficult task finding a reliable tradesman to do jobs around the house.
Often these jobs are relatively simple things like painting a room or adding an extra light fixing. But where do you look if you want to find a high quality, reliable tradesman or woman these days?
Ideally you would have a recommendation from a close friend or relative; however this is not always possible, especially if you have moved into a new area. This is when you need to visit www.findacraftsman.com, the only website to list members of The Guild Of Master Craftsmen exclusively. The Guild is the UKs leading trade association and always asks potential members for just that kind of recommendation.
Applicants for the Guild are required to submit confidential references from satisfied customers and one of the first questions asked of all referees is whether or not they would be prepared to recommend the applicant to a relative or close friend. The Guild's council of management include a review of the references when considering the application for membership as well as ensuring all other criteria are met. Only when they are satisfied that the applicant really does deserve to be called a master craftsmen is the application approved. This is about as close as you can get to receiving a recommendation from one of your neighbours or friends.
