Checkatrade has revealed Scotland’s top tradespeople, as decided by the consumers who used them.

With over 44,000 members, Checkatrade’s ‘best of the best’ were selected by using the 5 million verified reviews left by customers. Those which made the cut achieved consistently brilliant customer feedback, going above and beyond in everything they do.

Three trades in Paisley were recognised in the list, which features the following categories – builders, carpenters, landscapers and gardeners, painters and decorators, plumbers, plasterers, tilers and roofers.

Local building firm MCP Contracting Ltd is the highest rated building firm in Scotland, based on Checkatrade customer reviews, while DMC Groundworks Civils & Landscape Design Limited came third in the category for best landscapers and gardeners, and Paisley Pro Tiling achieved a fourth place ranking in the category for best tilers.

One glowing customer review for MCP Contracting Ltd on Checkatrade.com reads: “Absolutely delighted with the work carried out by the team at MCP. Being very particular about the standard of work the team certainly met that and exceeded expectation. Adapting to a variety of different issues with the property the team were able to offer professional opinion allowing me to make informed decisions. Always arriving on time and the place was always left in the same condition as it was found. I will be using the company for all future works as I think I even prefer this kitchen to my own! (Sounds like another job for MCP)! Great job folks!”

In a review for DMC Groundworks Civils & Landscape Design Limited, a Checkatrade user wrote: “Fantastic quality of workmanship. So much so, I’ve had other contractors asking for DMC contact details. Excellent communication from design to completion and undertook some extra items of work with ease. The area was left clean and tidy and I was given maintenance suggestions on how to look after my new paving.”

Mike Fairman, CEO of Checkatrade, said: “Currently, over one million customers visit Checkatrade every month to find reputable trade experts in their local area. We wanted to recognise the local tradespeople who go above and beyond and consistently deliver excellent work, so homeowners can find recommendations they can rely on the next time they need a tradesperson.”
