    My ex husband doing any DIY in the house, or putting furniture together, proper cowboy!
    I know what you mean though there are so many around these days especially with the credit crunch.
    I think there are now websites which recommend a tradesman and they have been checked out.

    My friend has just paid £2,000 for a small amount of fencing, about 20 square meters of decking, and a handrail put up AND it took 11 weeks to do. I think that qualifies as ripped of by a cowboy. :-(

    I paid a lot of money for my bathroom. The first problem was the shower cubicle door wouldn't open because the sink was in the way! Then they didn't centre the sink. And then they put the shower in the wrong place. Wasn't too happy with all this. I had to pay for a new shower tray and cubicle.
    since then all the floor tiles have cracked and the toilet flush had to be replaced.
    guy who did the job has since gone bankrupt so stuck with cracked tiles!
    he was recommended!
