The goal of this section of the site is to answer the questions below about each home improvement or household job.
How much should the job cost me? We factor in the size of your home and the area you live in. As you will be aware, the same job in London will probably cost more than in the north of the country.
Is it worth trying to DIY? We look at any possible dangers doing a particular job yourself and any other problems it may present. For example, fitting windows yourself can invalidate the manufacturer warranty in some cases.
How long should the job take? We look to discuss the length of time a job may take and the disruption it may cause, so you can plan in advance. For example, if you are having a new bathroom fitted, it may be better to do it whilst you go on holiday.
Is there anything else I should look out for? Unfortunately, there are tradespeople and big companies that may not be giving you the best value for your money and worst yet even trying to charge well in excess of what is reasonable. We look at the unscrupulous tactics that some may try on you, so you are prepared in advance!
