Searching for any kind of tradesman online can be fraught with problems. Often one of the most difficult things is to know what search term to look for. Then there is knowing what to look for in a good tradesman, if the testimonials on their website are genuine or not. Are they accredited with anything from their trade bodies and again if they are is in authentic. Below is an email we received from a couple who went the right way about finding a good local builder;

‘Recently we undertook the task of getting an extension built at the rear of our property in Preston, Lancashire. As none of our friends or family had recently used local builders preston we were left trawling the internet for a decent qualified Master Builder. We also used facebook and asked those friends and acquaintances if they knew of anyone and if they could recommend a master builder in Preston.

After a little work we came across a few local firms which looked like they were worth further investigation. Ultimately when looking for any trade it is important t0 be able to talk to their latest customers as they’ll give you a good indication of the kind of firm you’d be employing. In the end after speaking to their previous customers we went for a firm called Dewhurst-Hughes.Construction based in Kirkham, Preston. They had a good number of happy customers and had built many extensions in the area which we were able to take a look at.

Nothing builds up your confidence more than being able to speak to people who have had work done by the construction company you are looking to employ and for them to recommend them. Also seeing the finished home extensions for ourselves also helped us to make the right decision.’
