Finding a Contractor

The Scottish Government advise consumers to think about who you will use to carry out work on your home: Ensure that the trader is competent - do they have the skills needed to do the job well using the right materials? Ensure that the trader is reputable - what recourse would you have if there was a problem?

There is no list of recommended contractors. The Scottish Government cannot recommend individual traders and a list would require constant monitoring and checking by people with expertise in the quality of completed work. New companies appear and good employees move between companies regularly, so there is difficulty in assuring a list is current and valid. However, the Scottish Government recommends using tradespeople who are members of professional trade schemes. This firm is a member of one of the schemes listed on their site



Gas Safe Register

Gas Safe Register has replaced CORGI in Great Britain and the Isle of Man. The register exists to protect you, your family, and your property from dangerous gas work. By law, anyone carrying out work on gas installations and appliances in your home must be on the Gas Safe Register.  You can find a Gas Safe registered business in your area by entering your postcode.  Every gas safe engineer carries a Gas Safe card which verifies that they are who they say they are and which also gives details of the work they are legally allowed to undertake. Always ask to see their card.

Landlords and tenants can find advice on rights and responsibilities regarding gas appliances and gas safety when renting a property.
