I've used mybuilder.com for a number of projects around my house. I bought an 18th century cottage last year - it was dilapidated and needed a lot of things doing to it. I posted the jobs and let teh website do the rest. Its a great way to find tradesmen and saves you the hassle of chasing them - they come straight to you. You can chose who to ask to quote from all the interested parties - so no cold calling.Have recommended it to a number of friends and have used it many times - still very happy.
I've used Mybuilder.com for a variety of building, plastering, electrical and decoration jobs and have always been very satisfied with the tradespeople and the quality of the work done. Offering a job up for local tradespeople to quote on is excellent as you only deal with people who are interested and available for the job. It speeds up the process no end. I also like being able to read references and recommendations from other clients and view the tradespeople's qualifications and accreditations. This all makes it easy to trust the people you are inviting to your home. The tradespeople I have employed have, without exception, been lovely as well as highly skilled and professional and I have had no hesitation in leaving positive reviews for them. Mybuilder.com has changed the way I feel about having work done on my house and I can't imagine employing anyone without this site now.
I've used My Builder on several occasions. I find it very useful that I can read feedback from other customers and decide whether a tradesman is suitable for the job before I contact them. Every tradesman I've met has been friendly and helpful. I've used My Builder for all sorts of jobs, from fixing a loose roof tile, to tiling a bathroom, to laying a shed base, to replacing a fuse board. Every tradesman I've used has turned out to be reliable, trustworthy and has done a great job. I now have a list of tradesmen that I can call upon whenever I need them. I would not hesitate to use My Builder should I need another tradesman. I cannot recommend this website highly enough.
I have used this website for completing an outside wall - one that a previous builder, not from here, had made a mess of - and the results are amazing. Not only was the wall finished, he render it perfectly and then built a patio to complete the area. Very pleased. Recently I found a brilliant plasterer on the website who made my bedroom walls look like new. Then I hired a joiner to create loft access and put in a loft ladder. This joiner also helped repair a broken window pane. Have been delighted using 'my builder' and have another job ready to find tradesmen very soon. Easy and stress-free.
I have found a decorator, for interior hall and stairwell, and since employed him again to paint exterior of house. Bricklayers, to demolish and re-site pillars for garage and personal gate. Electricians to run dedicated cable for a hot tub installation, and a plumber to renew my combi boiler. All these tradesmen were excellent and well priced. The only disappointment with My Builder is, a rather more limited response than I had hoped, rarely the full 5 offers quoted. The concept is brilliant, but they need more tradesmen on their books..
I have used my builder for both employing tradesmen and for gaining work for my own painting and decorating business. This has been useful in both aspects as you are getting professional traders not cowboys who have a feedback reputation to live up to. I believe that any honest tradesman like myself can benefit from using this site and if everyone uses my builder cowboy traders will become a thing of the past.
Builders ripping customers off is a common british disease and we have been victims of it in the past. With MyBuilder the tradesmans feedback is crucial to them getting more work so therefore the service you get is assured and you can see the feedback from previous customers which is very reassuring. MyBuilder checks that they have the proper insurance in place should any damage be caused to your property. We have just moved into our new home which needed a lot of work doing to it and I have used MyBuilder for every job and not been disappointed that's why I think MyBuilder is a godsend,lets get rid of the cowboy rip off merchants for good.
I am now a convinced user of this website. Several times I have found tradesmen of high quality for plastering, plumbing, electricity and laminate flooring. To get an overview of tradesmen near by and pick the best one for any type of job, this is Mybuilder.com is the website to use.
Easy and quality finder for the right specialist.
Having been stung by 'rouge traders' on a couple of occasions, usually either by paying over the odds or by having to put up with poor-quality workmanship, we became increasingly nervous about hiring trades people whenever we needed things done around our house. MyBuilder.com has completely solved this problem, because we're able to review feedback from other people on a trades person before even inviting them to quote for a job. We have used the site for 3 different small projects around our house (building a stud wall, laying a driveway and getting some fitted wardrobes built), and on each occasion have had excellent service form the people we hired. Each time the reviews on which we hired them were entirely justified and the trades people were punctual, tidy, and did exceptionally high quality work within the competitive quote provided. I now go to Mybuilder.com whenever we have a job that needs doing.
I have just become a landlord and my tenants have made several requests for work to be carried out. Through mybuilder.com website I have found these requests manageable. Not only do you receive numerous competitive quotes, you can also see positive and negative feedback and know your workmen from the outset. For any awkward jobs where you are not quite sure what tradesmen you would need, they can view this for themselves and also see whether it's something within their domain. I have had 3 excellent tradesmen attend to the work I've needed, with no problems. All have been great communicators using the mybuilder.com website, they have attended quickly, they have all been honest and fair in price, but most of all their work has been excellent and I would never have known about these tradesmen had it not been for mybuilder.com In turn I think it's excellent for tradesmen to be able to build up a reputation and be recognised for work done well and be hired for more work from this. We need more sites like this one. I would and I have already recommended it up my friends and family. Cheryl Taylor
Found tradesman (Plumber)easily and teh tradesman was very helpful and done a good job.Had to contact my builder and found them helpful and very quick to respond.
I can thoroughly recommend my builder.com. Peer recommendation is a great way to ensure that you engage a competent and reliable tradesmen. I notice that it has a very positive effect on tradesmen as they are all too aware that they will later be reviewed by the customer through a posting on the website. I'm sure that most tradesmen are conscientious and hard-working but, nevertheless, the fact that their work will be reviewed has, I'm sure, an additional effect upon their approach and attitude to the job. I will continue to use my builder.com with confidence and reassurance; the peace of mind is very gratifying when you know that the site enables you to avoid the small number of 'cowboy' builders that, unfortunately, are out there, as we've seen from the TV programmes.
MyBuilder is really great because you can post your job in detail and wait for interested tradesmen to reply. You don't need to get the phone book out and phone endless people to see if they are free and explain the same job over and over again. I've used Mybuilder for an electrician, plumber and renovator so far. All were great.You have the option to wait for people to reply to your job or you can invite nearby tradesmen to have a look at your post.
I have used this site three times now and have found excellent workmen every time. I would recommend this site to anyone and will use again should I need too. five star service
