Waiting for tradesmen....
« Posted: 29 Jan 2014, 16:07:50 »
Having moved in to our lovely old house we now want to start getting some jobs done - new windows, bathroom, repointing work, and much more over this year (fencing, driveway, paintwork, etc - you get the drift...)
However, having had four tradesmen round to look at various jobs, we waited 2 weeks for responses and only got one. Chasing hard we now have a second quote (for the same job), but still nothing from the other two.

Is this normal around here?
I'm more used to builders etc getting back within 2-3 days.
If they're really busy then why come out in the first place - or at least drop a note to say they'll get back to us.

Grrrrr!

Are there any (reputable) builders, bathroom fitters, stone workers, window makers/fitters out there who need some work?  :)

Progress!

We've had some feedback now, but still struggling with our No. 1 priority - which is a couple of velux/skylight windows in our Colleyweston roof.
Can anyone suggest someone who might be able to do this for us?

Thanks  :)
