The difference between an average tradesman and an excellent one can be almost imperceptible to the uninitiated, but watch someone like Kerry of Eurolay Asphalt and Roofing in action and you start to see what it is. The average tradesman just comes in and does the job they have been asked to do. Sure, they usually do it adequately, but professionals who take a real pride in their work think about the bigger picture. Here, what may have been a job tidying up the roof and fitting some decking becomes a bigger contract, as Kerry takes the time to check out the surrounding structure. It may be costly for the householder (and a better job for him) in the short term, but it would certainly make for big savings in the long term. A good tradesman will be willing to talk you through the work that needs to be done and even show you what is wrong. They talk in terms you can understand and are happy to answer any questions.
