Tradesmen Search

We know that finding a reliable trades person at a good price can be a real challenge. However we know that many of us have received good service from different builders, plumbers, electricians etc, but unless you spread the word, often nobody else will know about them.  The best tradesmen usually don't have to advertise because most of their trade comes by word of mouth.  We want to use exactly that to provide HPLS members with informed choices.

If you have received a great service and are happy to put your name to a recommendation, then please let us know.  All we ask is that they ensure the same service for other HPLS members whilst charging the best possible rates for a quality job.  Email us to tell us.

You can also check your builder using a tradesmen recommendation website.

From JJ Rowe (HPLS Member)
I have recently had a loft conversion and extension done by a chap who has done much work for various firearms department members.
The chap is Darren Scott and works from Waterlooville.
His work for us has been excellent and we'd recommend him to anyone who is looking for these services. His business is: D Scott Loft Conversions Ltd

I can also recommend an architect called Stephen Drinkwater who is a real expert in his field. Again, he has done various jobs for firearms department members and comes recommended. 

From Kev Lewis (Staff member)
I have been a sparky-tech myself but haven't kept up-to-date with quals and regs. I was unsure about having another tradesman in at home, and demonstrated the quality of my work to them on the basis they had to at least match that and sign off the Part P certificate. They far exceeded my expectations in every respect. After that, CheckaTrade phoned and I had no hesitation in recommending this service.

From Tony Harris (Staff member)
Please can I submit this as a recommendation for the above tradesman:  There are lots of people out there that offer a plastering service but not many as thoroughly professional as Chris who is punctual, tidy and excellent value for money. Chris is a brilliant plasterer – his work is second to none and when he encounters a problem he is quick to resolve it. I can highly recommend him.

I know a retired Hampshire Police officer who is an excellent painter and decorator, he’s just done most of my house, Kitchen, hallway, landing, lounge and dining room. He’s done it to a high standard and at a competitive rate. So good that I thought I needed to share it with others.
