The internet is great isn’t it? An endless repository of information available to all at no cost. Nothing has advanced knowledge so far so fast. Now you can buy or find almost anything you can imagine online, and plenty that you couldn’t. Some things though, are best left to the real world. Finding good London builders is one such thing.
The problem with the internet is that it’s unregulated and uncontrolled. Anyone can be anyone and you cannot take anyone’s word that what they say is true. Comparison sites are going a long way to addressing this by offering reviews of products and services, even builders, which is a step in the right direction. Some councils have “trusted trader” pages on their own websites that seek to provide a list of known reliable builders, again, put forward by reviewers and residents who have worked with them.
This kind of thing is excellent, except for one thing. A savvy builder can have themselves put on these lists by organising positive reviews of their work. So even if a firm has a raft of good feedback, it has to be taken with a pinch of salt. That’s not to say that nothing it true on the internet, nothing could be further from that truth. You just have to be careful.
Fortunately, My London Builders have a track record of success and a trail of happy customers in their wake. Even though you’re reading this on their website, you don’t have to depend on it alone to make your decision. As us for references, previous job, and anything you like. We’re ready to answer in an honest and forthright way.

Word of mouth and real-life personal recommendation is still the best way of finding a reputable builder. However, the internet is a great way of getting information so you’re ready for them when they arrive to quote.
Many of the less reputable London builders rely on ignorance to support their activities. Most people have no idea about building, electrics, plumbing or anything else related to their trade. This gives the unscrupulous builder a great opportunity to exploit that ignorance and either stretch the job, quote for work that doesn’t need doing or fake it completely.
The internet is the ideal way for the lay-person to learn a little about what’s involved in their project. It’s also possible to get an idea of what such a job is likely to cost too, so you’ll know if the quote is fair or not. Learning what your job involves is the best way to make sure you get the right quote, at the right price.
It’s also much more effective than trying to research the builders themselves. Do that the old fashioned way, but talking to them and meeting them. If you know what you’re talking about, you’re much less likely to get ripped off. A little knowledge can go an awful long way.
Progress is great, but there is no substitute for the old fashioned face-to-face meeting. Looking someone in the eye and getting a feel for them as a person. In the end, it’s them and their skills you’re buying. We know you’re reading this on our website, but give us a call, we’ll come and look you in the eye and set your mind at ease.
