More than 7m searches for tradesmen on TrustMark in 2014

More than 7.2 million search results were provided to homeowners who used TrustMark’s website and telephone helpline to find expert tradesmen to carry out work on their homes or gardens during 2014, an increase of 38% compared with the same period in 2013.  

Specialists in underground waterproofing (1,031%), and damp proofing and timber treatment (81%) saw the largest rise across all trades in 2014 and have been two of the most sought-after trades out of the 34 licensed master trades offered by TrustMark.  

October and November also saw an increase in searches for expert roofers (70%), builders (67%), plumbers and heating engineers (61%) and electricians (41%), which together represent 47% of all the searches during 2014.  

Chief executive Simon Ayers said: “Homeowners are realising the importance of only using quality firms to do their home improvements and repair work and help protect their most treasured asset – their home.”
