Supporting Homeowners & Tradesmen During Covid-19

The wellbeing of homeowners and trade professionals is of the upmost importance to us.

We also understand that many homeowners maybe very concerned about getting work done in their homes or properties at this time.

However, some repair and maintenance jobs may still be necessary while this all plays out. Additionally, it may also prove to be a good time to get outside work done in your home.


Protecting Homeowners

Therefore, we want to offer reassurance where we can and also provide details on what we are doing to try to protect homeowners and trade professionals during the Covid-19 period.

We have informed all our Trade members of the need to closely and consistently follow all procedures as advised by the HSE and Government.

While it is up to each member trade professional to adhere to these recommendations, we have made them aware of the need to:

  • Wash their hands properly and more often;
  • Carry the required Personal Protection Equipment (PPE), including antibacterials and sanitzers;
  • Clean and disinfect frequently touched objects and surfaces in and around the working area;
  • Maintain social distancing standards (keeping a space of 2 meters) with work colleagues and clients.

Most importantly, should any of our members display symptoms we have advised them to self-isolate and get a Covid-19 test. Again, it is up to each member to adhere to these recommendations.

It is our hope that our member trade professionals will work with you to protect themselves and the wider community when responding to a job.

Therefore, we ask that when you post a job to please provide as much detail and clarity as possible including realistic start dates. You may also be requested to follow up with photos or more information on the job by phone to limit the need for a site visit.


Supporting Our Trade Professionals

Regardless of what you decide, this period will undoubtedly pass. When it does, it may also be prudent to have a good trade pro booked in now, well in advance of your project start date.

Our tradesmen are the heroes who build our walls, fix our plumbing and keep our homes heated and the lights on. They are among the thousands of self-employed business people that will need the publics support to pick themselves up after Covid-19 is defeated.

If you have a job right now that needs doing, we’ve got tradesmen ready to help.
