What is MyBuilder?
MyBuilder’s unique matchmaking process makes it easy to find the right tradesperson for your project. When you post a job on MyBuilder, it’s sent to local tradespeople with the right experience who can express interest if they’re free to take it on. This means you only hear from qualified and available tradespeople. You can see their work history and customer reviews before shortlisting favourites and allowing them to make contact and offer a quote.
MyBuilder are picky about the quality of tradespeople they let on the site. It’s the only service of its kind in the UK with a comprehensive evaluation process involving exam-type questions to ensure tradespeople meet the high standards required; meanwhile, the customer review system ensures that tradespeople are rewarded for good work and are kept accountable.
