I was conned by your tradesperson in September 2017

Posted by Karen McManus, on
I was charged £450 for a roof repair in September 2017. By July 2018 it is leaking again - worse than before. The trader is 'inactive' according to your website, so that's me conned and left in a worse place than before. Why should anyone every use Rated People.

Hello, It’s sad and very disappointing when this happens. Always use your own resources to research trades people. Never give a deposit for any job, I’d like to see some of their work first and talk to customers if I’ve got any doubt. A guarantee is only as good as the company’s trading. Regards
