    Consumers anxious about hiring tradespeople
    to carry out home improvements

    arrow Back to news 18th November 2015

    UK consumers are anxious about potentially hiring incompetent tradespeople and builders to carry out home improvements, according to new research by the Federation of Master Builders (FMB).

    The national economy could be missing out on as much as £6 billion a year in lost consumer spending on home improvements, with 20 per cent of consumers finding reasons to delay their building or home improvement work due to anxieties about using tradespeople.

     

    Almost a quarter of consumers surveyed by the Federation of Master Builders fear the final cost of the work will be much higher than the initial quote, while one-in-seven worry the finished work won’t be up to standard.

     

    Brian Berry, chief executive, FMB, said: “The anxiety around hiring tradespeople is of grave concern to us, not simply in terms of the reputation of our industry, but also the pressing impact on small construction firms and the UK economy.

     

    “What many people don’t realise is that the building trade has moved with the times – there are some fantastic tradespeople out there, many of whom have high standards of customer service and the best in modern technology, from digital testimonials to full 3D imaging.”

     

    So how does Sunsquare reassure its clients they are receiving a quality product?

    For us, it’s not a particularly hard sell. We’re the only flat roof skylight designer and manufacturer to be awarded a BSI for a rooflight, guaranteeing the quality, safety, and performance of our products.

     

    Justin Seldis, managing director, Sunsquare, said: “We take our role as market leaders very, very seriously.

     

    “We not only exceeded what is required to achieve the BSI standards, we surpassed the testing requirements by quite some margin, setting a new benchmark for industry excellence.

     

    “Our aim is not only to change an unregulated industry, but allow our clients to buy in complete confidence.”
