Each month, Rated People connects over 50,000 homeowners with quality tradesmen - simply enter your job details in the form above to get started.
We'll match your job to the relevant tradesmen in your area - those interested will pay to see your contact details and call you to quote.
As each tradesman expresses interest in quoting on your job, we'll send you their profile and ratings to help you choose the right one for you.
After the work is complete, return to the site and rate your tradesman based on their quality of work, reliability and value for money.

|Built-in cabinet in an alcove||£450||£700|
|Built-in wardrobe (2-door)||£400||£800|
|Fit curtain rail||£60||£100|

Of course you can also refer to their Rated People profile page to see all their recent reviews.

Turn to carpenters to add stylish furniture to your interiors as well as custom storage solutions. If you're not sure where the best storage spaces are in your house then check out this post to help you find the best spots. Last but not least here's how to choose the right doors for your home, and the right decking for your garden.
