  • Poor Builders: V.T.B Limited of Croydon, Surrey

    I used this company run by an eastern european man who shall remain nameless.

    Work was done by his labourers (thats all they are - not skilled professionals) to poor standard and thats why I'm writting this review. Often work "behind the scenes" which should have done was not and simply covered up, although I paid for it to be done properly. Building materials that I bought vanished. He tried to sell me some of his own materials but again gave no receipt

    He went on an on about money and would only accept cash. He doesn't believe in receipts either. Various extra charges were given to me for "unforeseen" work as well.

    All in all, bad experience and I do not think anyone should use him.

    You have to use Regulated Approved Tradesmen, you may pay a bit more but it is worth it in the end. Good Tradesmen will not jeopardise their reputation for anyone. Thats a lesson learned and as a Builder with 40 years experience myself understand and sympathise with your plight.

      Yes it is always best to use approved tradesmen as i know from past experience, the inital extra charge is worth it as you end up paying more to correct the work of bad tradesmen.
