Is using a professional expensive CAVEAT EMPTOR

There is a saying,”If you think hiring a professional is expensive wait until you’ve hired an amateur”

So many people think that they will save money on a project by hiring amateurs instead of professionals.

They say “I want a cheap builder

They think they can carry out a successful project with cheap labour

Sometimes it might work but most times it wont

You are either going to end up spending even more money paying professionals to come and fix the mess the amateurs have made.

Or even worse you are going to end up with a finished project that you don’t like or isn’t as good as the one you intended

A person who does a bit of building and a bit of plastering may be cheaper. But he will not be able to produce the quality of an experienced plasterer

Your mate down the pub who does a bit of painting in his spare time will never be as good as a City and Guilds qualified painter

And as for electrics if you are not using a qualified electrician you are potentially setting up a fatality. There are many ways to get an electrical installation working and many extremely dangerous ways to do it. How much is it worth to you to be able to sleep at night knowing your house isn’t going to burst into flames or electrocute someone?

The fully qualified and insured electrician may cost £200 a day. And the next door neighbour who is an Auto Electrician only charges £100. But that’s because he wires up cars for a living and not houses

The same goes for getting your drawings for the planning application done by someone who is good on the computer but isn’t an  Architect or Design Engineer

A refurbishment project is an expensive commitment

So why waste your money on people who don’t know what they are doing?

The reason they are cheap is precisely because they don’t know what they are doing
