Need a bit of work doing on your house? Require an emergency repair to be carried out? Then you should make sure that you do some homework before you decide on which trader to use, even if you’re really up against it time-wise.
As with most things in life, when it comes to having work done on your property, you’ll typically get what you pay for. As such, you’d be wise to avoid making a decision on which trader to use based on price alone.
Hiring a tradesperson who charges less than others might seem like a good idea when you’re shopping around, but it could cost you dearly if the person concerned is pretty clueless and makes a hash of the work you require.
You could be left with substandard work that will cost you more money to put right. In a worst-case scenario, you could even be injured as a result of an accident that was not your fault that came about as a consequence of the shabby work your ropey trader did for you.
If you’re left in the situation where you need to pay out more money to get a terrible trader’s work put right and you’ve already paid him, you could try to get some of what you’ve lost back by taking the offending trader to a small claims court. If you’re injured in an accident that was not your fault that came about as a result of your trader’s poor work, you might just be able to retain the services of a decent practice of solicitors in Guisborough with a view to suing your trader for personal injury compensation.
