I HATE it when tradesmen don't keep appointments!
I'm not stupid, I know that other jobs overrun, I know that vans break down, suppliers don't always supply etc etc. But I also know that I have a phone, they have a phone and it only takes 2 mins to let me know they'll be late. Communication is all...
We have been very fortunate since moving to our village. We now use a builder, plumber, electrician, landscaper and decorator who all live either in the village or within 2 miles. They all know each other so they liaise between themselves on jobs requiring more than one trade. They are all really nice, reliable, honest, helpful, clean working guys. Not the cheapest in the business but also not the most expensive.
Only problem is - every one else knows they're good too - so there is always a long wait to get work done. Worth it though..
