At JobSorted we work with the leading Government approved industry bodies who keep up to date registers of tradesmen qualified to carry out work to the latest standards set out under Building Regulations. If a tradesman carries the Registered Tradesman logo on JobSorted.com you can be sure they are who they say they are and competent to carry out the work.
Moreover if you have a complaint about the standard of their work you will have an official body to contact who has the power to deal with such complaints. Specific standards apply for the various types of work your tradesman carries out, which are summarised on this page.
