Finding a reliable, competent tradesman to tackle home improvement jobs isn’t always easy. However, thanks to a new online start-up, RedFish, this looks like its set to change. What they’re offering is a free, easy-to-use one-stop platform that enables customers and tradesmen to connect. On the face of it, it’s a brilliant idea; you end up happy with a job well done, and the tradesman concerned gets fed regular work.

From major improvements to odd jobs around the home, any home improvement help can be sought out on their website. To begin your search, you first register on the site for free and then include as much relevant details as possible to facilitate accurate quote responses. Interested tradesmen registered with RedFish will then contact you via email, which should provide you with a number of quote options to choose from.

All that’s then left for you to do is select the best person for the job based on their response and their company information displayed on the tradesman’s professional online profile. Once the job is completed, you then rate the contractors work and write a brief review, which becomes a permanent part of his or hers profile.

In order for tradesmen to respond to any job request, they must first register on the site for free. And the more information and customer references they can provide, the higher the ranking they’ll receive. Once registered, they then have the opportunity to highlight their particular expertise via their own online profile, which works as a public marketing tool.
