Trusted Trades Harrogate


Trusted trades are a compilation of trades people based in and around Harrogate who are genuinely recommended by Mumblers.

If you have received excellent service by a tradesman/woman and want to include them in this list then please contact us here with your recommendation, a brief description of their work for you and their contact details.

If you do use one of the trades people listed here make sure you tell them about Harrogate Mumbler!

All basic listings here are genuine recommendations and therefore are free of charge, however if you are a tradesperson who is already listed here and would like to upgrade your listing to a premium slot then please see our advertise with us section for pricing details.

The smallish print; I have put this list together as I know from personal experience how much of a nightmare it can be when you need something done, but have no idea who to call and how much is a fair price for the job. I hope it will be a good starting point for you but I would always recommend that you get a couple of quotes and then make your own choice. We at mumbler can’t take any responsibility for people listed here so if you do have any feedback (good or bad) then let me know here and if necessary I’ll remove the listing.

“..I was very impressed with Andy from the moment he came to quote to repaint our hall, stairs and landing……Whilst working here Andy was speedy, clean & very focused. He was also comfortable with working around young children and pets. he finished the job quicker than I expected and even popped back the following week to check over the areas he had painted, once it dried. Great communication & service from start to finish. I’ve already had him back to quote for some more work.”

The Harrogate Decorator – review…

“Well what a thoroughly nice guy Lee is and an absolutely first class decorator. Amazing work ethic and attention to detail. A perfectionist! I would not hesitate to recommend Lee (in fact I have already told many people about him) and look forward to using him in the future. Well done The Harrogate Decorator… you have some very pleased customers here in Pannal.”

“Lee did a great job on our garage door, front door, bathroom ceiling, kitchen and downstairs bathroom. This has made a big difference to our house. Some of the work wasn’t straightforward and he took time to do it properly for us to make sure it was perfect.

He has lots of tools of the trade too so even though ours was more complicated than other jobs in parts, he was able to do it properly but still at a reasonable price compared to other quotes.

Our house was left really clean and tidy when he had finished too. Highly recommended. Thank you. 5 stars.”
