Where to find tradesmen in Birmingham

2 months ago

Hi everyone,

So thanks to this forums, specially Jonathan, I have got a fair idea on how to proceed with the refurbishment.

I will need tradesmen, such as joiners, plumbers, heating specialist, builders, plasterers, decorators, kitchen fitters etc

Next query, as I am new to Birmingham, where do I go about finding them? On facebook? or word of mouth?

I thought I could hire anyone (the cheapes quote) to do the stripping and ‘taking things down’ work

I guess it doesn’t require much skill, more of labour and a skip

However the reconstructive work, such as kitchen installation, electric wiring, painting etc I would prefer reliable guys, even if their quote is higher

Also, as I would be doing it piecemeal, I expect delays

My monthly mortgage is 1500£

Even a 3-4 month delay, compared to a single builder taking it all up, can be offset by quotes such as kitchen stripping of 8k!

This is my idea on going about

Please do share your experiences

Kind regards
