It is often hard for older and vulnerable people to know where to find reputable builders and companies to carry out repairs to their homes. Every week the media has news about rogue builders preying on elderly or vulnerable home owners, tricking them into carrying out unnecessary work to their properties at vastly inflated prices.
The Care and Repair Agency can provide details of contractors that have completed work to a satisfactory standard in the past. We are unable to recommend any particular company and you are advised to obtain at least two competitive estimates, in writing, before agreeing to engage the contractor. The information is given in good faith however Tandridge District Council can not be held liable for any unsatisfactory workmanship or loss.
Another source of information on contractors is the Buy with confidence (This link will open in a new window) scheme approved by trading standards.
A Handyperson service is also available for carrying out small works.
