As you may be aware, DIY Doctor have always taken a strong stance against the cowboy builder. For much of our trading history we have campaigned hard to make home owners aware of the dangers of employing these "tradesmen". There are so many potential dangers of letting these people into your home and many things to be aware of when looking for a good tradesmen
We are now stepping up the campaign with a plan to lobby government. Our aim is to start up a National Building Register that will be free for consumers to use and for tradesmen to register but will only feature tradesmen that can supply evidence of Public Liability Insurance, and membership of at least one Trades Organisation which offers reference checking and arbitration services.
Consumers will then be able to choose their tradesman from the list knowing that they are reliable and trustworthy. They can also be safe in the knowledge that their home insurance will not be affected by incompetent work, payments can be made in full faith and they will not be subjected to some of the horror story tactics seen in the media.
