Not only that but the general public are paying through the teeth to rectify these botched jobs, to the tune of 100 million per year.

If you have ever has a gas engineer work on your boiler, gas fire or cooker who isn’t properly registered you could end up having the installation reinstalled at the costs of hundreds or even thousands of pounds. It is absolutely crucial that consumers check that any tradesman they use is on the Gas Safe register and therefore up to the standards to install or carry out maintenance on their boiler or other gas fuelled appliances.

Opting for the lowest price or even on the recommendation of friends or family isn’t always the best way to go especially when it comes to price as many of these rogue traders will offer lower prices because of the lower quality work that they provide and for the fact that they are unqualified to do the work safely. You are quite literally putting your life at risk for the sake of a few pounds.
