Reputations are not built overnight
In Referenceline's view, this track record is more important than the ratings. Don't be impressed by a few old reviews which may not be representative.  Look for firms with a commitment to asking for feedback - good or bad - from their customers.  We recommend that you look for a track record of ratings and reviews in at least 9 of the last 12 months and that you should not be too concerned about an isolated negative review.  Ask the firm for their side of the story.
 


 
Good Practice
Businesses have a legal responsibility to treat you fairly, but it's often hard to know what questions to ask or what standards to expect.  They are the experts and you should be able to rely on them to help you make decisions.  These questions explain the commitments that this business has made to follow a code of practice and they will help you understand what you have a right to expect.

 
Charges: 81%
Before starting work, did the firm explain the charges including labour, materials, callout & VAT (as appropriate)?
 
Timing: 89%
Before starting work, did the firm explain when the work was expected to start and finish?
 
Payment: 87%
Before starting work, did the firm explain how to pay (e.g. cash, cheque, etc.)?
 
Reliable: 95%
During the work, did the firm keep their promises, explaining and agreeing any changes about the work, costs or timing where necessary?
 
Invoice: 100%
On completion, did the firm give you an invoice showing the cost of materials, labour and VAT?
 
Guarantee: 100%
On completion, did the firm give you a guarantee for a specified amount of time, or usage (where applicable)?
You can see how many customers have said "Yes" in answer to each question, but please don't expect 100% in every case.  Nobody's perfect and some customers may not be completely sure about the answer.  It's more important that you understand these questions and discuss them with the business so that you both agree what good service means for you.  A responsible business will be happy to explain the details to you and it's always better to clarify these points upfront to avoid misunderstandings later on.

Extension including kitchen/diner and shower room, skylights, all fittings and fixtures.

"We chose William Kennedy to do our extension as their quote was reasonable compared to others, their reputation and after speaking to a couple of their previous clients. We had a full quotation and regular updates, proper VAT invoices and Mr Kennedy was very good at meeting us at regular intervals to keep us informed. The whole team worked really well together and we honestly could not have wished for a nicer, more hardworking team. The joiner gave us some brilliant suggestions for the kitchen as he was building it, which have made a difference to the overall look and use of the kitchen. The shower room is such a good size. The extension has made a huge difference to how the back of the house was designed and used. We love it. They made the back of the house secure and blocked off which kept the mess confined! Fully trustworthy with keys to come and go."

Main team: Mr Kennedy, Hughie (joiner), Daryl and Kieran (plumbing and more), Liam, the apprentice, Gerry and a couple of sub-contractors.

"Used this firm after seeing good reviews from Trusted Trader. Absolutely delighted with the work done. Everything was done to a high standard, with friendly helpful staff on the phone to our plumber who was just fab. No mess left, in fact I wouldn't have known he'd been there, he even put my furniture back in the right place for me. Would definitely recommend"

Cost: £7000
 

"We had an entire house to sort. Mr Kennedy was patient, sympathetic and immensely helpful. We had used the firm before in our previous house and had no hesitation in using them again for a much bigger job.

They checked the heating, moved radiators, removed fireplaces, half a kitchen, layers of flooring (thank you Hugh) and all the rubbish that entailed.

A huge thank you to Wm Kennedy and his great team

(can't wait for the bathrooms to be installed....)"

Fitting of new kitchen, including new oven.

"The work was efficiently completed within the time scale arranged.
The men were polite, helpful and went out of their way to attend to my wishes.
The team arrived early each morning and worked steadily until late afternoon, taking only a short break. I was without running water for very little time, so was not inconvenienced while the work was in process.
Before leaving for the day, one of the team made sure that the necessary facilities were in order for me to use overnight."

Annual boiler service.
 
Cost: £88

"I have used this company for several years and will continue to do so. When telephoning, it is wonderful to speak to a helpful human being, rather change press buttons for different plumbing circumstances eg. Burst pipe, leaking valve kitchen design etc. not having to listen to endless vivaldi is a joy."
