Daytime television definitely has its fair share of poor viewing but there’s also the slight glimmer of hope through home renovation programmes. These shows include the likes of ’60 Minute Makeover’, ‘Extreme Home Makeover’ and ‘DIY SOS’. However, one of the more intriguing and quite frankly worrying restoration and home improvement televisions programmes out there is ‘Cowboy Builders’.
The show ultimately focuses on these builders who find unsuspecting homeowners wanting renovations and take their money before fleeing town, leaving the owner with no forwarding address, no money and a construction zone for a home.
Cowboy builders are certainly not to be trusted to get the job done if you’re looking to extend your home. Thankfully there are tips to spotting a cowboy builder.
Is your builder unwilling to put a quote or estimate in writing? unwilling to offer you details about their business? And does he claim to be in a trade association when he’s not? These are all distinct signs you may be dealing with a cowboy builder.
