    Starts off innocent where they knock on your door and point out to you that you have a loose roof tile and can fix it for you for (say) £50, while they are up on your roof they soon find more faults and offer to carry out the repairs whilst they are there and then the bill quickly doubles, trebles & then goes on….

    To cut a long story short I found I had paid £240 for just over two hours work

    If I’d have waited for my trusted local builder to give me a quote and properly plan the work, it would have been considerably less
