Wouldn't touch them with a barge-pole - and certainly wouldn't let them ANYWHERE near my house! I would have to VERY strongly advise anyone else to give this mob a wide berth too.


I've seen some of the last series and if you watch closely what they're actually doing you'll see that the amount of bodging, lack of basic prep work, slap-dash finishing, corner cutting, and downright dangerous practices they indulge in would make even the most hardened cowboy builder blush! They do it deliberately in order to meet their artificial 3 day deadline.


Think about it - it takes a full day for an undercoat paint to dry and then a day each for two coats of gloss to dry - so you can never acheive more in 3 days than just a quick re-coat of the woodwork. These guys are knocking walls through, fitting kitchens or bathrooms, re-plastering, then re-decorating - and reckon they've done it properly and made it all good in 3 days!!!!!! 3 months later the finish will have all fallen off and the poor people will be left with a house which looks a complete wreck!


And these are the same sort of TV companies who keep churning out programme about rogue traders!
