Will it cost more to use a TrustMark registered firm?
The cost to a firm of joining TrustMark should not affect the price you are quoted. We recommend that you get at least three quotes for the work you want done - and don't automatically assume the cheapest is always the best. If a tradesman claims to be able to a job very cheaply, or will give you a discount for cash, treat them with the utmost suspicion.
