Followed the MyBuilder scheme and had a number of tradesmen around to quote. Reviewed all the references on the site and decided on one guy. 3 months into a project, 40% complete, the builder left the site, took all our cash we had set for this fixed price project and left us in a terrible state. We were living through the build (in two rooms in the house, no kitchen) with a 3 year old and 6 year old, and left in the middle of winter. Subsequently had to double the spend, builder no where to be seen and a qualified electrician said we were lucky to escape with our lives given the state of the electrical work (photo evidence provided that showed burnt out new wiring and plastic tape covering torn cable!). Thank god for building regulations who at least supervised the structural work!
NEVER use MyBuilder.com, always go with personal recommendations, from VERY local tradesmen who care about their local reputation. It was entirely local tradesmen who got us out of the hole we were in and restored our faith and our home.
