The localandtrusted website is a great idea because, coming not from this area, I would not know where the local tradesmen are that can be trusted. The site has worked very well for me to find a reliable tradesman at a competitive price. I will certainly use it again.

Both my husband and I work full time.  Using L&T saved us so much time. We found a really good tradesman quickly and easily.  They  completed our job at a fair price and to a very good standard.  It's nice to see who you are dealing with before inviting them to your home.  We will use L&T whenever we need a tradesman from now on.
