Avoid The Local Cowboys
Posted by Administrator : Thursday 28th February 2013
HOW EASY IS IT TO SPOT A LOCAL COWBOY TRADER? There are numerous reasons why cowboy builders get away with their bad practices and carry on working in the community such as people not asking for verified references, no signed contract, not obtaining at least 3 other quotes to compare, clients naturally go for the cheapest quote and some residents or businesses are impatient and choose not to wait for the best builder.
Many people in our Westminster community think they could spot a cowboy builder. But the fact is that they can fool the smartest employer. Cowboy builders can be enthusiastic about the work, always return your calls, visit quickly and tell you readily how much the job will cost and when they can start.
