It found that Lichfield District had access to 442 trustworthy electricians, 62 plumbers, 45 plasterers, 88 carpenters and joiners and 220 builders.

A spokesperson said:

“Now that we are approaching winter, there is a greater concern with home maintenance.

“With an increasing demand for tradesmen, having some trustworthy tradesmen on your doorstep has become an important requirement for many.”

While Lichfield had a total of 857 tradespeople classed as trustworthy, at the other end of the study Inverness finished bottom with just 18.

  1. As a local gas engineer and plumber there’s nothing more important than reputation. Ask most traders and it’s how we mostly get our work… however when I see things like this report and notice the company that has commissioned it…it winds me up…this company will most likely not use any of those local companies they are talking about. Just be warned and as they suggest use local…thanks.
