Absolute Building and Construction are delighted to have been accepted on to the ‘Checkatrade’ scheme.
Checkatrade is a nationwide register of tradespeople which allows members of the public to check detailed reviews before they hire a contractor.
The site contains detailed information on each company on the scheme and more than 6 million people used the web site last year to find reputable tradespeople in their local area.
How it works
Checkatrade is a free service and it works by providing consumers with access to reviews of individual contractors before they make a selection. Once their work has been completed, they are encouraged to provide their own review so the general public has constant access to the most-up-to-date feedback on our work. In essence the scheme allows the people who are having work done to continuously monitor its quality.
In order to be accepted by Checkatrade, we were put through an extremely vigorous selection process. This involved being pre-screened, interviewed and vetted. We were required to prove our qualifications and accreditations and provide customer referees for whom we had completed work in the last 12 months, and our company history was examined in some depth. We were also required to sign up to the CheckaTrade Code of Conduct and Ethics and guarantee to always meet the CheckaTrade Standard.
Those companies wishing to register on the scheme need to be extremely confident of the standard of their work as the results of the screening will be made public – whether they are good or bad!
Although the process was long and extremely thorough, we were very confident as we are extremely proud of the standard of our work and the positive feedback that we receive from our clients. We are hoping that our Checkatrade membership will add a further level of assurance to our clients as well as providing them with the opportunity to share their experience of our work.

Association of Master Tradesmen
And don’t forget, we are also members of the Association of Master Tradesmen which is a consumer protection body and trade association made up of professionals in the building trade.
In August we were delighted to win a new piece of work to complete single-storey and garage conversion, directly through the Association of Master Tradesmen scheme, where our new client was able to post their requirements and select from approved local tradespeople to do the work.
We start the work in September and are delighted that our membership of these associations provides our clients with an easy and straightforward method to ensure that they are selecting a professional, expert and reliable contractor for their work.
