About Guild of Master CraftsmenThe Guild of Master Craftsmen is the UK’s most established trade association for skilled and rated tradespeople, craftsmen and others who strive for excellence in workmanship.
Most members are carpenters, builders or plasterers along with other modern professionals. However, other more traditional craftsmen such as blacksmiths and stoneworkers are also members of the Guild. It assesses all members to make sure that they have the right to the title of master craftsmen, and once accepted members must adhere to the Guild’s aims and objectives.
The Guild emblem reassures customers that they will receive good customer service and that members will carry out high quality work. Only Guild members can use the emblem, so it means that the Guild has assessed anyone using it and they have proven that they are good enough to use the master craftsman title.
Potential customers can use the Guild’s website where they can search for lists of approved tradespeople in their local area. The Guild recommends that customers only employ tradespeople with the Guild emblem as it has approved them and it trusts them. It offers advice on how to choose a reputable tradesperson on its website, such as asking for references and checking a guarantee covers the work. If there is a dispute between a customer and a craftsman, the Guild offers a conciliation procedure so it can resolve issues. It has a page on their website dedicated to providing advice for planning a project for the home or business, and it offers advice for consumers seeking a specialist trade.
