Everything you thought you knew about builders is wrong | #ModernBuilder

Builders are often portrayed as workshy cowboys with backward attitudes. On the rare occasion they turn up on time, they are expected to kick-start their day with a fry-up followed by several cups of tea. Then it's off to the pub to watch football.

MyBuilder, an online marketplace to find great tradespeople, polled their users to find out whether these assumptions were correct. The results were surprising. Not only is the public perception way off, we learnt some things about builders that nobody could have predicted!

As business grows, many tradesmen make use of subcontractors to tackle bigger projects. But with your own reputation on the line, it’s easy to be reluctant to allow other people on your job. MyBuilder spoke to some tradesmen to find out the steps they take to ensure continued growth while keeping their reputation intact.
What are your views on subcontracting? Please leave your advice below.

There's really no choice but to take on subcontractors.  Builders can't be putting on permanent staff all the time as there just isn't enough certainty.

Vin, our first ever tradesman to hit 500 positive feedback, has been featured on Get West London and the Harrow Observer today. A huge well done!
We're always hearing home improvement horror stories but one Wembley builder fought the stereotype head on

The Better Way to find Builders
Introduction
MyBuilder is an online marketplace that brings together consumers, builders and tradesmen, offering an open and transparent platform that promotes and supports high-quality work. Posting a job on the site is free.

Working on a principle of accountability through feedback, tradesmen are rated on their workmanship by those who hire them, making it easier to find high quality builders and for builders to find good quality jobs.

Starting out in a cold Bristol garage, MyBuilder was the dream of stonemason Ryan Notz who didn't want to be "just another builder in the phonebook". Inspired by Ryan's first hand experience at how difficult it could be to find work and how hard it was for consumers to find trusted tradesmen, Ryan is now CEO of a growing business with offices based in Central London and networks across the country backed by a grouping of solid investors.
