Recommendations for builders/cleaners...

There have now been a number of requests for recommendations (builders/cleaners) within the pages of this site.

I have used a number of sources for finding tradesmen in the past - with varying levels of success - but in most cases have still ended up trawling through the local business directory as well.

Whilst I appreciate that any names put forward would be unsolicited, they would at least be start.

As I have already picked up some excellent information about pubs, butchers, gyms, restaurants and Sainsburys from this site, why not local tradesmen/women as well?

Perhaps because we prefer to read about local developments rather than have to trawl through what would otherwise become just another free-for-all advertising page.

There are enough existing resources elsewhere - Thomson, Yellow Pages, leaflets through the door, etc, etc. No need for this forum to be deluged with spam.

Hi Wayfairer
For local craftsmen or ladies the best thing to do is ask neighbours and friends. Apersonal reccomendation is by far the best way to go.
Forget directories , those with the biggest adverts are not usually the best
