5 Top Tips to Find A Reputable Builder

With the arrival of spring, the demand for property renovations is at its peak, keeping Econoloft incredibly busy. It's crucial to choose a reliable and trustworthy company when it comes to major building work at home. But how can you be sure? Here are our top 5 tips to help you find a reputable builder.

1. Professional Affiliations

Does your builder have any affiliations with professional associations? Econoloft is proud to be affiliated with a variety of esteemed organisations that prioritise the vetting of our work and guarantee our trustworthiness and reliability. We collaborate with prestigious bodies such as The Guild of Master Craftsmen, The Consumer Protection Association, The Federation of Master Builders, The Federation of Small Businesses, and local Trading Standards. Additionally, we actively support initiatives like Friends against Scams, which diligently work to shield consumers from unscrupulous fraudsters and unreliable builders.

2. Longevity

Experience is the ultimate testament to quality. Discovering how long a builder has been in business reveals the true essence of their workmanship and whether you can entrust them with your hard-earned money. Unfortunately, numerous small businesses succumb to financial hardships, leaving customers high and dry. At Econoloft, we are a longstanding family business that has been serving our clients for decades. Rest assured, we are not in the business of taking your money and vanishing into thin air or leaving your loft conversion project half-finished. Our years of experience offer you the peace of mind you need to confidently proceed with your renovation plans.

3. Payment

Feeling overwhelmed by a pushy sales pitch and pressured into signing a contract? We understand how unsettling that can be. At Econoloft, we believe in providing you with all the relevant details and giving you the freedom to make your decision at your own pace. We never resort to hard-selling tactics. Moreover, our payment process is designed to be fair and transparent. We take payments in staged phases throughout the project, ensuring that you only pay for the work that has been completed. Rest assured, we will never ask for all the money upfront.

4. Recommendation

What are people saying about your builder? We consider our satisfied customers as ambassadors for Econoloft. We take pride in the fact that more than 90% of our projects come from recommendations. Many of our past clients are more than happy to share their experience with potential customers, providing an honest assessment of their time working with Econoloft. Additionally, our website and third-party review sites are filled with genuine feedback, and we are truly proud of our outstanding reputation.

5. Quality

Does your builder offer the opportunity to connect with previous customers? At Econoloft, we are delighted to introduce you to our former clients who are more than willing to showcase their loft conversions. This gives you the opportunity to witness firsthand the exceptional quality of our work and engage in personal conversations with our satisfied customers. Feel free to ask any questions you may have and gain valuable insights from those who have experienced our services firsthand.

When searching for a reliable builder to transform your loft, be sure to consider their professional affiliations, years of experience, positive reviews, staged payment options, and commitment to quality work. Rest assured, your thorough research will ultimately guide you to our doorstep!
