‘Check’ the below, in order to ‘check’ who’s best to aid your up and coming planned project!

So, if you have a project in mind at home - THE key starting point may well be 'who do you know who could reliably come ‘on board’  to get it done' …and, of course, get it done right!


A key thought such as that is always, of course, very much to the fore with us here at Mint Builders......and recently our eye was caught by the  celebrations going on at the well-established, highly successful Checkatrade Organisation!

well done ‘them’

They are celebrating no less than 25 years of their very well know Trade Directory…. so well done them…. that’s for sure! They hang out here ….…... if you want to ‘check’ them out! 

Extend now - Move Later

We at Mint, as you may know, through our Extend Now - Move Later initiative have been very actively urging homeowners - in the face the tough, tough housing market, right now - to go for a renovation or extension, to add price value for the future, when perhaps a ‘full-on’ home move may have become a more feasible proposition than it definitely is right now!

starting point

When it comes to Cheltenham and Gloucestershire, perhaps, we at Mint could of course assist you with your project - but, if you live elsewhere…. a way away ….and if you are seeking the right trades or a builder to help get your project underway….then the Checkatrade Directory might just be something of a starting point for you.

very well respected

The flourishing high profile, very well-respected and very well-known Checkatrade directory is apparently now delivered  to 20 million homes - UK wide… now that’s a lot of Directories eh?

all kinds of help

It lists approved trades people, ready and waiting for you, who could offer all kinds of help with all kinds of home projects including home extensions and renovations!

busy ..busy

As the busy.... busy Checkatrade organisation say.... "We've been checking tradespeople since 1998" . The Directory started in1998 apparently, when a tornado struck a tiny seaside town in West Sussex. Rogue tradespeople flooded in, bodging jobs and ripping off the locals. So, say Checkatrade "We started a directory of local tradespeople who we’d personally spoken to and checked”…… and from such modest beginnings, the Directory grew ....and grew… and grew!"

national AND local

The business are national now ….. and, they say ...we are local too! Add Checkatrade, “We’ve never lost that simple dream to help our local community” From these early early beginnings, the Checkatrade Directory is - we are told - THE most well-known trade directory. Boast the Checkatrade  ‘Biz’ …."that’s why over 5.5m homeowners have left over 6.2 million reviews on Checkatrade"…

most ‘well known’

Checkatrade modestly boast that they are ‘THE most well known'. This is based on findings in a Deep Blue Thinking survey, using a nationally representative UK sample carried out back in November 2021( just so you know!)

carry on ‘checking’

By the way ….reference the name… 'Checkatrade' ….there’s apparently a simple reason for that ……as they say… Checkatrade members are checked…checked… and checked again…. Check how it's all done below .....!!!

Check ..check …check

Checked by us. Each member must pass up to 12 rigorous checks, so you can trust our members to be who they say they are ….and have the right qualifications.

Check Reviews

Checked by you. Homeowners are encouraged to leave reviews which we continuously check. We remove any trades that don’t maintain our high standards

Check ‘it’s for real’

Checked again. We check the reviews, our members receive make sure they’ve been checked and the checks are left by real people.

still checking ….

So, there you go… and, well done them for constantly checking all and sundry successfully .....after some 25 years!  For lots more to check up about… reference this organisation,  you can check here …….. ......hopefully job done!

checking out now!

Enough said… I’d say…. We at Mint are ‘checking out’ now! We do indeed hope  - your next home project whatever it is - 'checks out' alright for you in the end!
