How to avoid the cowboy builders (and how I got Mum's money back)

How to avoid the cowboy builders (and how I got Mum's money back) | Book A Builder UK | Scoop.it

Choosing a builder is a serious task. You want to be sure they are up to the job so you look at the reviews, you look at the professional bodies they belong to and you make sure they are a legitimate company that you can trust.

But we’re all in a hurry these days and so it’s understandable that sometimes we look for shortcuts.

At least, that’s what I told my mum when she rang me in a panic, having possibly lost more than £4,500 to a bunch of cowboys.

If you’re in the market for a fixer-upper, chances are your competition is slim. That’s great news because it means the odds for scoring a sweet deal are in your favor.

But buying a fixer-upper can be a double-edged sword. You could either find yourself neck-deep in a money pit or sitting on top of a gold mine. That’s why it’s important to know what to look for before you set out on your search.

In just a couple of weeks the clocks will go back, meaning evenings get darker earlier as winter fast approaches. However, it is not all doom and gloom with a number of Halloween events taking place soon and we can now definitely start looking forward to Christmas.

Biohm's "Vegan Insulation" System offers a Future for Green Construction

Biohm's "Vegan Insulation" System offers a Future for Green Construction | Book A Builder UK | Scoop.it
Biohm has developed the material from a vegetative part of mushrooms called mycelium, with attractions such as efficient insulation performance, natural self-extinguishing, air purification, and waste consumption. The insulation blocks are made from allowing fungus within the material feeding off sawdust to grow into a mold. Once dried, the material growth halts resulting in a rigid material which can be sanded and painted

These 15 Home Renovations Have the Highest Return on Investment | Book A Builder UK | Scoop.it

It’s sad but true: not every home renovation offers a great return on investment. In fact, most upgrades that you make around the house wind up costing hundreds or even thousands more than they’re worth. If you love the result, then those overpriced changes can be worth it. But if you have any intention of selling your house in the future, then you’ll want to choose renovations that make sense, cost-wise.
